MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid and a panel of guests agreed on Sunday that Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke, a vocal Donald Trump supporter, could likely lose his reelection bid because voters know that he’s “all hat and no cattle.”
Noting that Clarke currently has an approval rating of 31 percent, Reid wondered if the longtime sheriff would abandon his hopes for another term. But Wisconsin state Sen. Lena Taylor (D) argued that Clarke staying in the race would make it easier for a more progressive candidate to win.
“It’s going to be such a fun primary seeing us make him lose for the first time,” Taylor smiled. “I believe that with everything I have.”
“I’m sure he would like to keep wearing that uniform as a prop when he goes on Fox News,” conservative ex-radio host Charlie Sykes observed. “It’s about the only time we ever see him around here. I mean, he is AWOL. He’s basically bailed on Milwaukee.”
Sykes predicted that Clarke would not run for reelection because “he thinks he is bigger than the sheriff’s job.
“He’s really transformed himself into this mini-Trump wannabe. And that’s his career trajectory,” he added.
Taylor accused Clarke of registering as a Democrat to “deceive voters.”
“Everything he has done has been with the Republicans,” she pointed out.
“Clearly the ego and the big hat have gotten the best of him,” Sykes lamented.
“I’m so glad to hear that Charlie Sykes and I agree,” Taylor laughed. “David Clarke is all hat and no cattle.”

Here’s why a new rule could result in Trump losing his diploma from Wharton
In 2019, a college admissions scandal rocked the country. Thus far it has resulted in 53 people being charged with cheating the system, paying for people to take standardized tests and paying their way into schools. Over the 7-year investigation, the FBI uncovered everyone from celebrities to wealthy families for conspiracy to commit felony mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
In response to the scandal, the University of Pennsylvania announced that would revoke the degree of any graduate found to have given false information in an admission application, cheated on an exam or tempered with their records, The Daily Pennsylvanian reported.
Gov. Ron DeSantis still won’t reveal true COID-19 data — so things are probably much worse
Florida reached 213,000 coronavirus cases on Tuesday, as Gov. Ron DeSantis continues to encourage the state to reopen at all costs.
According to CNN's Randi Kaye, the numbers spell "trouble" for the state as it's GOP leaders are opting for a simplistic approach to reopening.
Just in the last 24 hours, they have had more than 1,600 people hospitalized for COVID," she cited. "In the last two weeks, the hospitalization haves gone up 90 percent. The ICU bed demand has gone up 86 percent, and the ventilator usage has gone up 127 percent. The governor is saying he's sending 100 nurses and 47 beds to Jackson Health because they need it so much. But at last check, we've noted that about 56 hospitals around the state have run out of ICU beds, which means they have no space for anyone who needs an ICU bed. This is really critical for Miami-Dade because they make up the 24 percent of the cases throughout the state, so they really need those hospital beds."
Joe Shapiro — the man who took Trump’s SATs for him
The University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School is being thrust into the spotlight after it was alleged that President Donald Trump was admitted after his sister did his homework for him and a friend named Joe Shapiro took his SATs.
In a new tell-all book by the president's niece, Mary Trump, it was revealed that the Penn grad wasn't quite the "genius" he has claimed to be. He announced he was "first in his class at Wharton," though he never was admitted to the prestigious MBA program at the school and he was never listed on the dean's list the year he graduated, the Penn student newspaper reported in 2017.
