Sheriff David Clarke: Sen Cory Booker ‘a Poor Man’s Obama’

On Wednesday’s “Hannity” on Fox News Channel, Milwaukee Co. Sheriff David Clarke reacted to Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ)’s testimony against colleague Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) at his Attorney General confirmation hearing.

Clarke accused Booker of lying about Sessions, and later calling him a “poor man’s Obama.”

“I thought it was disgraceful on the part of Cory Booker, who I have met,” Clarke told host Sean Hannity. “He’s got more class than that but he didn’t demonstrate this at the Sessions hearing. It was phony. He lied about Jeff Sessions. He misrepresented statistics all in an attempt to, like you said, audition potentially for 2020. But that was not the time to do this.”

“He calls Jeff Sessions a friend if you saw the opening of that, and then he turned around and just stabbed him in the back for the rest of his presentation. It was phony. He is a poor man’s Obama in terms of acting because he just doesn’t have it,” he added.
