Jonathan Bernstein: Joe Arpaio piles on GOP's primary woes

Jonathan Bernstein: Joe Arpaio piles on GOP's primary woes

In Arpaio's campaign pitch to Jones, he told him he was "never going to go against" President Trump, even if he doesn't endorse everything the president does.

Arpaio repeated his team's 2012 finding that the certificate was forged during an interview with CNN on Wednesday.

"I started this because of fake documents, government documents", Arpaio explained again. "I didn't care at all".

When Camerota asked if Ward was "comfortable" with Arpaio's record of implementing illegal racial profiling in his county, Ward sidestepped the question.

"Deport them", Arpaio said when asked about undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S.as children.

"No doubt about it. We have the evidence".

The birther hoax first came to light during Obama's 2008 presidential campaign, but was revived in 2011 when conservative public figures, including Trump, talked about it. Obama had already released a short-form birth certificate in 2008, but the scrutiny led him to in April 2011 release a long-form version.

As for that pesky criminal contempt conviction, Arpaio dismissed it as a no-big-deal misdemeanor rooted in cheap partisan politics.

If Mr Arpaio gets Mr Trump's endorsement, it could win him the Republican nomination. You're going to hear more about this fake, phony birth certificate. Hostin later went on to refer the influx of fringe candidates as "the Trump effect".

"Being a US Senator is a little different than being the sheriff, because you can do a lot of things in the US Senate, and I have many plans, believe me", he told the Washington Examiner.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who recently announced his run for Senate, appeared today on Infowars to thank conspiracy theorist shock jock Alex Jones for his continued support. But he had an ally in Trump, who had campaigned alongside Arpaio. He also fought on the front lines of the war against illegal aliens entering the United States and sued Barack Obama over the issue. What's wrong with that? His campaign manager says they filed the paperwork with the U.S. Senate on January 9th.

"When we come across these kids, or some are older than just kids", Arpaio said, "Then deport them".

He'll enter a Republican primary for the seat being vacated by Republican Sen.

Arpaio could have been sentenced to up to six months in jail. This isn't a stunt.

The Right loves their sheriffs. Or, perhaps more likely, Arpaio will just siphon off hard-right votes from Ward, causing the quieter Arizona Republican, Representative Martha McSally to navigate the middle ground.
