‘They weren’t my socks’ tactic also used by politicians
Politicians could learn a lot from 20-year-old Damien K. Clark Jr. of Ohio.
Or then again, perhaps it was politicians who gave poor Damien the perfect excuse for his wayward deeds.
Damien was pulled over by police this week for a traffic violation. But Damien’s trouble had only begun.
When police smelled marijuana and spotted clumps of pot on the car seat, they suspected that our man Damien was up to something.
So they searched his car and his clothing.
And sure enough, right there in his socks, the police found cocaine.
But Damien apparently had paid attention to our politicians, and he knew exactly what to say.
“These aren’t my socks,” Damien told the highly amused police.
But then they found illegal pills and another bag of cocaine in his shirt pocket.
More searches and more drugs including a mystery pill in his other sock. He also had $750 walking around cash.
But Damien says he’s innocent because, don’t you know, those weren’t his socks. He apparently was simply wearing the socks for some other thug and has no clue just how those drugs ended up in his car, his shirt, his socks, etc.
Unable to post a $16,250 bond, Damien remains jailed and our guess is that he remains sockless.
Politicians and Damien have more in common than you would think.
Though many politicians — Hillary Clinton comes to mind — use some excuse other than “they weren’t my socks,” the result is the same.
The politically-charged investigation that has captured our attention for two, long miserable years, has countless bad players who claim “they weren’t my socks.”
FBI agents posting anti-Trump emails by the hundreds, want us to believe they remain neutral in their work.
Crooked politicians like Maxine Waters want us to ignore their “socks” and concentrate on other topics like our President.
Logic and common sense have been abandoned in our current political climate kinda like poor Damien denying the socks on his feet and the drugs herein contained belong to someone else.
Our guess is that poor Damien will be convicted despite his unique sock claim. But far too many politicians will be reelected despite compelling evidence equal to the ludicrous claim that Damien employed.
Damien is adamant that some mystery person put drugs in socks and then compelled him to wear them. Then they slipped cocaine into his shirt pocket, sprinkled marijuana on the car seat, slipped yet another drug into his other sock, and therefore, he is innocent.
Politicians, meanwhile, have some mystery person slip money into their campaigns, ignore factual evidence and lie to the American public.
They don’t fall on the “they weren’t my socks” defense. But it’s the very same tactic.
