I have to say, I love me some Sheriff Joe. He’s a no-nonsense, tough talking son of a gun that takes no crap off of anyone.
Since most of the American public has forgotten about the outrage surrounding Obama’s birth certificate, Sheriff Joe has brought it to our attention again:
Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz., has been one of the most vocal of Barack Obama’s critics, especially when it comes to the authenticity of his birth certificate.
Now, in an interview with “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” the sheriff said that he’s “pretty well convinced” the 2011 certificate released by the White House is a fraud.
“I’ve been in law enforcement 55 years,” Arpaio said. “I think I know a fraudulent, fake document.
“I’m not a computer expert. I rely on my people. But I’m pretty well convinced it’s a fake document.”
The questioning came in the context of a discussion involving 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump, another high profile conservative who believes that the birth certificate is a fake.
“I don’t know. Was there a birth certificate? You tell me. You know some people say that was not his birth certificate. I’m saying I don’t know. Nobody knows, and you don’t know either,” Trump said about Obama’s birth certificate in 2013.
Referring to Univision and NBC severing their ties with Trump over his statements on Mexico, Sheriff Joe backed Trump up.
“I thought we have freedom of speech in this country,” Sheriff Joe said. “And he’s running for president. He has a right to voice his opinion.”
Sheriff Joe added that Trump “did talk about the birth certificate in the past.”
“You know, I’ve been working on that,” Arpaio said. “So I don’t know. I guess you got to be politically correct when you run for office.”
Sheriff Joe said that “once again nobody wants to look at it right now. So it’s not my problem. I did my job.”
I love how we have a President with a likely faked birth certificate running our country and letting illegal immigrants in like crazy. Pretty sweet deal, if you’re an immigrant. But, alas, all things must come to and end, and Obama’s era is so close I can taste it. Thanks, Sheriff Joe, for keeping it real and reminding us of the lies we have endured this administration.
