Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who Trump pardoned in one of his most despicable and controversial moves yet, wants to run for one of the Arizona US Senate seat currently held by Sen. Jeff Flake, who is retiring at the end of his term. This means two things for Americans, and especially Arizonians. Hoping and praying that a Democrat will somehow complete a wholly immoral and disgusting excuse for a human being—again; and listening to Arpaio spout utter nonsense during his interviews, which he got a jumpstart on during his interview on Cuomo primetime.
Arpaio was one of the original “Birthers”—those who believed that Former President Barack Obama was born in Kenya, and a lie touted by Trump for an entire decade. Trump mostly let it go, but Arpaio is still on it, telling Cuomo that Obama’s birth certificate was a fake.
“No doubt about it, we have the evidence, I’m not going to go into all the details, yeah, it’s a phony document,” Arpaio said on “Cuomo Primetime.”
The former Maricopa County sheriff was convicted for violating a court order to stop racially profiling Latinos. He routinely abused his prisoners in both physical and mental ways.
He continued with his conspiracy, further highlighting his racism.
“We have the evidence, nobody will talk about it, nobody will look at it, and anytime you want to come down or anybody we’ll be glad to show you the evidence,” Arpaio said.
Cuomo pressed Arpaio further: “So you believe that President Obama’s birth certificate is a phony?”
“No doubt about it,” Arpaio said.
In case someone out there still believes this nonsense, Obama was born in Hawaii.
