Stuart Varney takes notice of the fact that many hand-wringing, look for anything to complain about libtards are whining about Donald Trump’s choices for Director of Homeland Security, National Security Adviser and Secretary of Defense all being retired generals. He gets some input on the topic from Sheriff David Clarke, who is wearing a uniform himself.
Varney asks his guest, “Do uniforms in the cabinet room worry Sheriff David Clarke?” Clarke responds with a chuckle, “Not at all. Look, these are chronic complainers at the Washington Post and the New York Times. If she were alive, Donald Trump could nominate Mother Teresa to be Ambassador to the Vatican and the New York Times and the Washington Post would have a bird over that.”
“Donald Trump gets to pick whoever he wants,” says Clarke, “reasonably, obviously, because it needs Senate confirmation but he gets to pick whoever he wants to surround himself with in order to move his agenda forward. He does not need a stamp of approval from the New York Times or the Washington Post. I think these are great picks and I’ll tell you why. If the Washington Post and New York Times are whining about it, that means these are great individuals.”
Varney changes gears, playing a clip of an admiral at the Pearl Harbor anniversary ceremony, recognizing the lack of patriotism of Colin Kaepernick. The admiral said in his speech, “You can bet that the men and women that we honor today and those that died on that fateful morning seventy-five years ago, never took a knee and never failed to stand when they heard our national anthem being played.”
Clarke says, “Good for him. Look, Colin Kaepernick doesn’t know anything about history, I bet he thinks Pearl Harbor is a jewelry store. Good for him and you know, America is behind that sort of stuff, we’re a patriotic country. It’s one of the characteristics, one of the virtues that I possess as well. No respect from Colin Kaepernick as well but also shame on the NFL, because some of the other sports leagues do have a rule that say you will stand during the National Anthem. It’s about respect, that’s all it is, respect and decorum.”
He adds, “You don’t have to mouth the words, you don’t really even have to put your hand over your heart if you want. As many of the individuals will just stand at attention, the players on the side of the court or along the sideline. It’s just, you know, honor, the flag, the service, the sacrifices, you know that people died for, for the freedoms in this country.
Varney slips a final question in, saying, “You wouldn’t turn down a job in the Trump administration, would you, Sheriff? Clarke replied, “I don’t think you can. Look, if you’re asked to serve by the President of the United States, you’re being asked to serve your country not just an administration, not just a president, no I wouldn’t turn it down at all.”
