CNN Host Urges Trump to Condemn Sheriff Clark, Guest Bashes


<p>Less than 24 hours after the highly contentious interview between CNN&rsquo;s Don Lemon and Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clark, CNN Host Erin Burnett demanded to know if Donald Trump agreed with him. &ldquo;<strong>He&rsquo;s [Sheriff David Clark] going to be speaking tonight. He blames black lives matter for these tragedies against police. Does Donald Trump condone that,</strong>&rdquo; Burnett asked to a Trump supporter on her <em>OutFront</em> panel.</p>

<p>Her question was to the Andy Dean who was the lone Trump supporter on the panel. &ldquo;Well I&rsquo;ll tell you first you&rsquo;re talking about David Clarke. He&rsquo;s an excellent police officer. And he is right that black lives matter, their rhetoric is completely out of control,&rdquo; Dean responded.</p>

<p>But Bakari Sellers, a Hillary Clinton supporter, was not having it. &ldquo;<strong>And this is the problem, because David Clarke, Donald Trump, Michael they have no solutions. They have absolutely no solutions,</strong>&rdquo; he exclaimed. Sellers also claimed that Trump and Clark are doing little to bring people together, and only driving them apart:</p>

<p><strong>We&#39;re at a moment in the country where, Donald Trump, David Clarke, all of these speakers on a night where we&#39;re talking about make America safe again, need to be bringing this country together. This type of language where you hint around, it&#39;s almost McCarthy-ite. Where you&rsquo;re talking about Barack Obama, somehow, condoning the slaughter of these police officers.</strong></p>

<p>Bernett let her guest go off on Clark and Trump, even aiding Sellers&rsquo; argument. Before shifting away, she managed to get in one last push for Trump to condemn Clark, &ldquo;<strong>he has an opportunity at this event and tonight, others speaking for him, but to speak to everyone.</strong>&rdquo; She also got in one last dig in on Clark, &ldquo;<strong>Not just to police, to everyone.</strong>&rdquo;</p>
