Talking About Obama’s Birth Certificate. Again.

Joe Arpaio, screengrab. Just look at all those old white men.

Joe Arpaio. Apparently, still grieving over not being sheriff anymore, so he’s running for senate in Arizona. Here’s a bit of what he had to say to people about his pro-Trump platform:

In a speech to a small group at the event, which was posted on YouTube by the channel Tru Conservative TV, Arpaio recalled introducing Trump at a campaign rally in 2015 where he spoke about his and Trump’s shared interest in cracking down on immigration and in investigating Obama’s birth certificate.

“I talked about another thing that made a little news,” Arpaio said. “I don’t talk about it anymore—until I become the U.S. senator…but that’s something to do with a document. If I ask you guys—I’m a nothing now, but if I was still the sheriff I could ask for your birth certificate.”

“So I’m kind of dropping that right now,” he said, “but I’m going to tell you something: 100 percent we proved that’s a fake document. One hundred.”

For someone who is not talking about “it”, you seem to be spending time talking about it. Unbelievable, all these old, white, conservative christians are like a terribly scratched record, it’s all skip, screech, bumpity bump bump.

No, you did not 100 percent prove the birth certificate to be fake. You couldn’t get anywhere at all with that, even though you put years into your “investigation”. Well, I suppose focusing on such nonsense is better than Mr. Arpaio attempting to address current affairs.

    Wow. Didn’t even Trump drop that one -- admittedly boasting he ended it? Oh yeah :

    “President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Period,” Trump said while briefly addressing the subject at the end of a campaign event at his newly built hotel in Washington.”

    Ye-non-existent-gods, Arpaio is vile.

    This also underscores, I guess, how these sort of absurd and offensive claims are dropped (& usually?) forgotten rather than followed up by responsible media and others in contact with these douchebags doesn’t it?

    They all have their hands in their pockets.
    What is up with that?

    It is odd. Usually they have their hands in other peoples pockets.

    All these folks know that black ‘people’ aren’t really people and so are not really born to begin with.
