Racist Joe Arpaio's Hero is Racist Donald Trump! What a Surprise!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Joe Arpaio, the longtime county sheriff seeking a U.S. Senate seat in Arizona on Tuesday, said during a television interview it took him 75 years to find a hero in his life. That person: Donald Trump."

NBC`s Kasie Hunt asked Arpaio "Is John McCain a hero?" and he deflected by answering that Trump was his hero.

Before the ascendancy of Trump, Republicans, Democrats, and Independents would have answered: Of course, McCain is a hero, his battle scars and his bipartisanship leadership in the Senate bear witness to his courage and integrity.

But the GOP is beset by tribal rivalries, and such a simple question poses a minefield for Republicans. They don`t want to offend Trump and so many balk at answering in the affirmative.

I`m surprised it took the racist sheriff 75 years to find a hero to his liking. He referred to his tent city jail, where inmates were housed in inhumane conditions, as a concentration camp, you`d think his hero would be Adolph Hitler.

Last year our racist president pardoned Arpaio for his conviction for criminal contempt of court, that`s what probably tipped the scales in favor of Trump.

Arpaio is running for the Senate seat in Arizona in what hopefully will be his last hurrah. He`s last in the polls but I take slight comfort in that fact, because his hero still has the fervent support of most Republicans.
