Sheriff Joe Arpaio had some strong words for Republicans who are obstructing President Trump’s agenda.
“I can understand Democrats,” Arpaio said on the Todd Starnes Show. “But some of these Republicans, it’s very disgusting what they’re trying to do to our president.”
“I feel sorry for the president because sometimes you can’t trust people.” The former sheriff said he understands that Democrats are pushing back, but he’s “disappointed” in Republicans obstructing and leaking against Trump. “I’ll be with [Trump] to the end…as long as he’s president. I wish there would be more support for him.” Arpaio said.
Arpaio said criticism from Speaker Ryan, Sen. McCain and Sen. Flake on Trump’s pardon doesn’t surprise him.
“Why didn’t they come to me to get the real story? Maybe they would commend the president for what he did,” Arpaio suggested.
“I didn’t know it was coming,” Sheriff Joe said of Trump’s pardon. “I never asked for it.” Sheriff Joe asked his lawyer, “Are you sure you know this is real?” when he heard about the pardon on his way to eat Italian food with his wife for her birthday this past weekend.
“I’m going to get involved in politics…could it be Flake? I don’t know what office…” Sheriff Joe said. “We’ll see what happens, but at least I’ll be speaking out. There was a tremendous abuse of power” Sheriff Joe said of the charge against him, calling it a “travesty of justice” and “disgusting.”
Todd called Sheriff Joe Arpaio a “one-man border wall.”
