    Birtherism is pretty much the bottom of the alt-right cesspit, so it’s hardly surprising that Joe Arpaio should solicit the support of the birther conspiracists.

      Arpaio still banging on about Obama’s birth certicate being a fake & presumably Obama therefore not being a US citizen settles it that the guy’s an obsessive nut case.

          With geniuses like Arpaio standing for public office in the USA and people recognising their ability and genius it’s clear to see we should doggedly keep following their educational and schooling ideas. 🙃

          On the other hand someone thinks being practised is a good idea for being a politician:

    Trump hits a new low (assuming that’s possible):

    More to the point: how could Americans elect a shithole president?

      Blithering drivel. Just what we expect from you, Joe. A shit-hole country of which there are many is defined by the evilness of its governance, its moral code and its religious intolerance. Nothing whatever to do with racism that fatuous fools on the Left love to accuse everyone.

        Well, maybe not entirely fair their Al. It’s ok for you to say those things but you have TBS, and that article does go to point out things like:

        “This is a man who launched his political career by pushing a conspiracy theory that the first black president was not actually born in America. This is a candidate who rocketed to the top of the GOP primary polls by calling Mexicans rapists. This is a president who has repeatedly attempted to act on his campaign pledge to ban Muslims from entering the United States, who has said that Haitian immigrants “all have AIDS” and that Nigerians live in “huts.”

        He does tend to say stupid things that insult countries and their people just because he’s rich, American, geographically & internationally ignorant, and because it’ll score votes from other comparative ignoramuses, of which there are many in the US, most of whom I believe still don’t have passports and don’t travel anywhere but to other states & cities in the US, some of which are reportedly shitholes.

          Trump doesn’t care what he says about non Americans. He distinguishes them and us. Whereas in other parts the white working class are the other and migrants are golden.

    “US President Donald Trump has cancelled a visit to the UK next month, saying he was not a “big fan” of the new US embassy in London he was due to open.”
