Trump Defends Pardoning Joe Arpaio By Citing Cheering From “Massive Crowd” At His Arizona Rally [VIDEO]

Raw Story reports:

President Donald Trump on Monday defended his decision to pardon former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio by citing applause from one of his rallies — and then attacked former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

“Well, a lot of people think it was the right thing to do and actually in the middle of a hurricane, even though it was a Friday evening, I assumed the ratings would be far higher than they would be normally. You know the hurricane was just starting and I put it out we were pardoning as we say Sheriff Joe.

“When I mentioned him the other night, you saw the massive crowd we had, the people went crazy,” the president said. “The place went absolutely crazy when I was in Arizona last week.”
