If you’re just now figuring out that Donald Trump is a bigot through and through because he pardoned Joe Arpaio, then a few people are here to say hi!
Black people (You all live such miserably impoverished inner city lives that you should vote for me because…whatever the fuck he said)
Women (Grab ’em by the pussy!)
Jews (Some neo-Nazis are very fine people!)
The list goes on and on.
What he did yesterday by pardoning Joe Arpaio wasn’t to “reveal” (as Sally Yates put it) his unapologetic bigotry. [UPDATE: AS MY WIFE POINTS OUT, SALLY YATES’ POSITION IN THE WHOLE TRUMP/JUSTICE DEPT DEBACLE BUYS HER LOTS OF LATITUDE TO MAKE HER POINT, SO THIS ISN’T AN ATTACK ON HER.]
It was to shit all over the rule of law, and all over the faces of everyone who understands how dangerous lawless bigotry is when it hides behind badges and guns. But he didn’t reveal a damn thing.
