The Trump administration appears set to appoint a sheriff to the Department of Homeland Security David Clarke who made the announcement in a Wisconsin radio interview on Wednesday that he would be an assistant secretary at DHS’ Office of Partnership and Engagement, Politico reports. The Sheriff of Milwaukee County is known for a set of anti-LGBT remarks he used to make in the past. In part he branded transgender people freaks and claimed they all were just mentally ill: “Folks, more evidence that transgender persons suffer from mental disorders more than physiological disorders. Too often in this assault on the First Amendment, and this very totalitarian attitude from the left that any freakish lifestyle is now considered part of the norm, and they’re shoving it down our throats. If you’re not careful when you engage in this conversation, they’ll look for the trap, and they’ll catch you saying something that’s clumsy or not well articulated, and then they’ll just attack you with it… Transgender-phobic and all this other nonsense, ” Mr. Clarke has fumed on TheBlaze Radio Network just less than a year ago
