Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., a top Donald Trump supporter who spoke at the Republican National Convention, sent out a tweet on Saturday telling supporters to use “pitchforks and torches” to fight corruption. Echoing Trump’s mistrust of the political establishment, Clarke wrote, “"It's incredible that our institutions of gov, WH, Congress, DOJ, and big media are corrupt & all we do is bitch. Pitchforks and torches time.” The rallying cry was accompanied by a photo of an angry crowd holding torches, pitchforks and machetes. It’s not clear what prompted the statement, but Trump has lashed out at the media in recent days for “poisoning” the minds of the people by publishing sexual assault claims against him. He has also claimed the election is “rigged.” Clarke, perhaps most well-known for calling Black Lives Matters protesters the “enemy,” has stood by Trump despite recent scandal.
