Sheriff Clarke Blasts Obama's 'Insulting' Commencement Speech
During his commencement speech at Howard University over the weekend, President Obama said one of his biggest pet peeves is "people who have been successful and don't realize they've been lucky."
On "Hannity" last night, Sheriff David Clarke quipped that if anyone is familiar with luck, it should be Obama, who went from a community organizer to commander-in-chief.
"He doesn't believe in human potential," Clarke asserted. "He doesn't believe in a person's ability to work hard, persevere, overcome obstacles and go on to reach greatness."
Clarke pointed out that not all people are blessed with equal abilities and talents. He said it's not about that, however. It's about how hard you work and what you do with what you're given.
He noted that he worked hard to get through the Naval Postgraduate Academy, and he would have been insulted if a commencement speaker got on stage at his graduation and told him he was "lucky."
"It's just the wrong message to give young minds coming out of college," Clarke said. "Don't blame racism, don't blame the world for not being fair. It should have been that kind of message. That's what young people need to hear."
"Of course, he never misses an opportunity to play the race card."
