Trump mades waves days ago when he pardoned racist sheriff Joe Arpaio, and now, Arpaio is making new waves of his own. The very unpopular Arizona sheriff announced to the Washington Examiner, “I could run for mayor, I could run for legislator, I could run for Senate.”
“I’m sure getting a lot of people around the state asking me. All I’m saying is the door is open and we’ll see what happens. I’ve got support. I know what support I have.”
With Trump’s support, Arpaio has gotten a new sense of power, after refusing the possibility of running in January. Arpaio says that “with what I’ve seen happening in recent months, especially what’s happening with our president, I said, ‘Hey, why not?'”
Maybe because you are not untouchable, and continuing to do what you do puts your life in danger because you have literally destroyed human lives with your disgusting bigotry.
Arpaio doesn’t understand why people are baffled by the possibility of an 85-year old man running for a seat:
“Why do you say ‘wow’? They just say Sheriff Joe Arpaio comma 85 years old. Why do they always say that?”
Because you are comma 85-years old.
“I’m proud to be my age. I work 14 hours a day. If anyone thinks my age is going to hold me back, I’ve got news for them. The bottom line is there’s no way I’m going to go fishing. I have no hobbies.”
No hobbies except systematically targeting minorities.
SAY NO TO ARPAIO.
