Can't believe this shit...... Joe Arpaio: Obama's birth certificate is a 'phony document'

Washington (CNN)Controversial former Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Wednesday called former President Barack Obama's birth certificate a "phony document" in an interview on CNN.

"No doubt about it, we have the evidence, I'm not going to go into all the details, yeah, it's a phony document," Arpaio said on "Cuomo Primetime."

Arpaio announced Tuesday that he is running for the Arizona US Senate seat currently occupied by Sen. Jeff Flake, who is retiring from Congress at the end of his term.
He was a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump during the campaign, and was pardoned by the President in August. The former Maricopa County sheriff was convicted for defying a court order to stop racially profiling Latinos, and he has been widely criticized for his hard-line stances on immigration.

Arpaio has touted "birtherism" in the past, and, when speaking to CNN's Chris Cuomo on Wednesday evening, said he has proof that Obama's birth certificate is fake.

57. Arpaio does not support Arpaio and neither does the GOP establishment

Arpaio, who is part of the AZ GOP establishment, is running to split the conservative vote in the GOP primary and allow the establishment candidate, Congresswoman McSally, to win against state senator Kelly Ward. McSally will do much better in the general election than Ward.

The exact same thing was done in the AZ GOP Senate primary in 2016 when McCain was threatened by Ward and it worked.

He knows that the entire conspiracy theory has completely collapsed, but rather than admit to being 100% wrong, and a total asshole, he's doubling down on it.

Jerome Corsi is still advocating this, since he makes a lot of money doing so.

Arpaio just doesn't want to admit he screwed up.

Just like Trump and his "Dem illegals voted fer Hillary!"

I'm not sure who his target audience is, but good luck with that!

31. Yes - "we have the evidence, I'm not going to go into all the details"

Why didn't Cuomo immediately come back with - "Well, show us the evidence and give us the details or shut up and get off my set."? And why didn't Cuomo also ask why Arpaio was bringing up this old lie now? President Obama is no longer in public office. If Arpaio had the evidence while President Obama was still in office it might have relevant, but now it is not only irrelevant it is offensive.

58. Yeah, Shetland is great. Netflix has Doc Martin - I'm on season 8

I just realized today that Amazon has Doctor Who, so I guess I will sign up for Amazon Prime, even though I order few things from them. They even have classic Doctor Who going back to the very early shows. Those are what got me hooked on Doctor Who - back in the 1970s Georgia Public TV used to show them and we could pick them up with a good antenna.

Eventually I will sign up for Acorn, but even with just Roku Channel, Netflix, Tubi and Crackle I have more than I can watch right now. I'm paying for Hulu but haven't watched anything on it.

I spend most of the day watching murder mysteries, then might watch Chris Hayes and Rachel - but if they depress me I go back to streaming.

61. For those who have political memories:

We've had a lot of politicians, including Trumpy and Nixon, who claimed to have secret evidence that they won't reveal. Nixon told us that he had a secret plan to end the Vietnam War, and told us just before an election. He didn't. Trumpy does the same thing in spades. And Arpaio is merely mimicking Trumpy. No facts. No evidence. Just a slimy allegation, a wink, and a promise.
