The despicable David Clarke — the former sheriff who insists on maintaining his sheriff title despite the fact that he no longer has right to lay claim to it — reminded us all of what a loathsome man he is today by tweeting out a crude rape joke about former Vice President Joe Biden.
Clarke was responding to an article about Biden’s speech at an anti-sexual assault rally. During it, Biden said if he had gone to high school with Donald Trump he would have physically fought the now-president.
“They asked me would I like to debate this gentleman, and I said no,” Biden remarked about Trump, “I said, ‘If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.”
Biden then addressed the Trump team’s ridiculous and offensive claim that his comments about grabbing woman “by the p*ssy” were just “locker room talk.”
“I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life. I’m a pretty damn good athlete. Any guy that talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room,” Biden said.
It was this bit of the speech that seemed to infuriate Clarke, who is an avid, frothing Trump supporter. Clarke quoted Biden’s statement that he’d been in a lot of locker rooms, and then asked what he was “doing hanging around all those locker rooms.”
He suggested that Biden was “taking in the sights,” an implication that Biden liked to ogle naked men. It’s obviously worth noting that Biden is a straight man with a loving wife and children. It’s also worth noting that even if he were gay it wouldn’t be a bad thing. The only people who think it’s bad to be gay are regressive, hateful men like Clarke and many of his fellow homophobic Trump supporters.
Clarke then took it a step further by asking if Biden used to drop the soap repeatedly in the showers, a disgusting reference to the old stereotype that men who drop the soap in prison showers invariably get anally raped by the other men in the room.
JOE BIDEN: “I’VE BEEN IN A LOT OF LOCKER ROOMS IN MY LIFE.”
Really Joe? Please tell us why and what you were doing hanging around all those locker rooms, Joe? Taking in the sights? Did the soap keep falling out of your hands Joe? Huh? Tell us Joe. #MAGA. https://t.co/NbMVGH4qqB

Clarke is a horrible person who doesn’t deserve any kind of power or recognition. He is willing to defend Donald Trump, a man accused of numerous sexual assaults and even the rape of a 13-year-old child before turning around and slanderously accusing our former Vice President of enjoying being raped. It’s utterly gross and inexcusable.
