Fiery 'None Look Like Trayvon Martin': Clarke Slams Obama's 'Shoulder Shrug' on TN Victims
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke went after President Obama over the weekend for his "shoulder shrug" following the deaths of five U.S. servicemen in Chattanooga last week.
Obama's shoulder shrug on these brave soldiers massacred in TN is because none of them look like Trevon Martin. pic.twitter.com/Si1BbmFV8b

Clarke noted that on the day of the attacks on two Tennessee military centers, Obama was visiting a prison, "lifting the spirits of federal prisoners."
He said right now, ISIS is calling on its followers to attack U.S. service members and law enforcement officers "with impunity."
Clarke pointed out that White House officials reached out to the families of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Freddie Gray, all of whom he said were "engaged in criminality."
"But yet the people defending the homeland, the law enforcement community and the United States military, he can’t display that same sort of emotion. He can’t pick up the phone and thank that mother for her son’s service to this country," said Clarke.
Clarke recalled that after Martin's death, Obama famously stated that if he had a son, "he'd look like Trayvon Martin."
"I guess what the president was saying was, if I had a son, he wouldn't like a military soldier or one of the people serving in the armed forces," he said.
