“Was the Birtherism a mistake?” anchor Chris Cuomo asked Arpaio. “You were part of a campaign to delegitimize a president of the United States. It matters, no?”


“I started this because a fake document, a government document,” Arpaio responded. “I didn’t care where the president came from. I didn’t care at all. We have the evidence; nobody will talk about it, nobody will look at it. And anytime you wanna come down here, anybody, we’ll be glad to show you the evidence. And by the way, you’re gonna hear more about this fake, phony birth certificate.”

Yes, he’s still on that shit. But what else is he going to run on? Policy?

Many political pundits doubt that Arpaio can win a statewide Senate race because his candidacy seems like a long shot. I agree.


There’s no way a man with a criminal, racist past could get elected to office simply running on a lie that the last president was born in another country. It is impossible to believe that someone with no other platform besides anti-immigrant, discriminatory, unconstitutional policies intended to stoke the xenophobic fears of white people could get elected to federal office.

That could never happen. Not in America.
