Sheriff David Clarke is taking a job as an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security, but a lot of people are not happy about his new gig.
Juliette Kayyem, who used to serve in the same role under President Obama, said she is “floored” and “feel[s]” for her former staff members.
For those of you I'm just meeting, Clarke is taking my old position under Obama. I am floored. And feel for my career staff. https://t.co/DXa2mujlg5

Black Lives Matter leader Deray McKesson said the hiring makes a “mockery of the entire government.”
This is a mockery of the entire government. Clarke is not fit to be in any role. https://t.co/TqTepHubJl

Clarke, who is a Fox News contributor and Milwaukee County sheriff, has been accused of several scandals and has been heavily criticized for his opposition to the Black Lives Matter movement.
David Clarke is legit one of the worst people in American politics, responsible for multiple deaths & who traffics in fascist rhetoric. https://t.co/oag2tMtEFt

The Sheriff Clarke appointment would be the worst of the entire administration, hands down. Like, so bad it's not actually funny.
