Daily Trumpeter: Trump comes to Arizona, courts Sheriff Joe

Laurie Roberts from azcentral.com skewers them. Scriber thinks they are made for each other. BFF for sure.*

So Donald Trump is coming to Phoenix this weekend and appearing with a law enforcement official who ran a department that regularly arrested people based upon the way they look.

He'll be sharing a stage with a law enforcement official who has admitted that he's in contempt of court for ignoring a federal judge's order to stop racially profiling Latinos drivers.

With a law enforcement official who next month faces a civil trial for abuse of power, after the U.S. Department of Justice noticed a disturbing tendency to target journalists, judges and public officials with whom he had disagreements.

Donald Trump meet Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

But not to worry. Trump told NBC News that he has a "great relationship with the Mexican people." I can only imagine. (No really, I can only imagine.)

And what stage are these two buffoons sharing in Phoenix? It's the Maricopa County Republicans, of course. Roberts continues.

Well, and won't a joint appearance with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio help him win all those Latino votes?

They'll be sharing a stage at the Arizona Biltmore on Saturday along with Tyler Bowyer, chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Party, which is hosting the event.

The fact that a Republican candidate for president thinks this will help him in Arizona says a fair amount about the Republican Party in Arizona. The fact that the Republican Party would sponsor this event also speaks volumes.

You know, the party that decided to reach out to Latino voters after they broke nearly 3-1 for Barack Obama in 2014?

I'm guessing Project Latino Outreach is over.

Did it ever start?

  • Footnote: BFF means "best friends forever."
