Former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio sat down with Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro to talk about his run for Senate. During his interview, Arpaio said he never had a hero until now, with President Donald Trump in office.
Joe Arpaio on running for Senate in Arizona: "I never had a hero, it took me 75 years to find a hero, and that's @POTUS. So I'm gonna go to Washington, support his agenda, support his policies and they all relate to Arizona." @JudgeJeanine pic.twitter.com/1WwttmyPT8

Some people loved what he had to say.
Hope he wins!??????

If he does, you can almost bet that he’ll be Trump’s righthand man when it comes to immigration policy.
Thank you for your service Mr. Arpaio. God speed, Sir.

Arpaio’s service has brought national attention to Maricopa County. How you feel about his policies will depend on your view of crime and punishment.
Well said Sheriff Joe!
The President has been a God send !

Just remember: Trump isn’t Jesus.

He IS implementing the policies his voters wanted.
The idea of Sheriff Joe running for Senate doesn’t make me burst into fits of uncontrollable laughter, unlike Chelsea Manning. #MAGA ??????

That’s definitely a good sign.
I pray u r elected.

There are probably tons of conservatives who are on their hands and knees praying just as hard as you are.
I’m with #Joe

Let’s see if #Joe becomes a trending hashtag.
Sheriff Joe is fantastic …

Others weren’t as happy about Arpaio’s run though.
He scares me. He’s still harping on the birth certificate. Gotta let it go, buddy.

When’s the last time Arpaio brought up the birther issue?
Spare me, though it won't be the first time a crook entered gov't from AZ.
— Phos (@BobCurrer) January 15, 2018
Please, enlighten us. Who are you referring to?
— Juli frank (@Julifrank8) January 15, 2018
Well, that escalated quickly.
If Trump is your hero, then you’re in sad shape.

Typical liberal response.
I voted against Sheriff Joe in 2016 and he lost. In AZ you can only vote in primaries if you register for the party, so I can only vote in the Dem primary. If he makes it to the general election I'll vote against him again, and I'm confident the state of AZ will too.

Arizona is a lot “redder” than you give it credit for.
Glad I don’t live in AZ. If I did, I’d be pushing back every way I could.

Time to pull out the p*ssy hats!
what did u think before 75 years
— Brad Brown (@BradBrownSkol) January 15, 2018
That’s the one question we all have.
Arpaio is corrupt, racist, criminal. Unfortunately he’ll fit right in. ?
— Michael Lambard (@mlambard1) January 15, 2018
You have quite the way of characterizing all Republicans as the same.
The felon Arpaio needs to be put on some serious medication.

Tell us, what do you recommend? And where did you get your degree from, WebMD?
No—your real hero killed himself in a German bunker in 1945.

People like Steve are the reason people can’t have “civil” political discussions.
Absurd thought process as Arpaio is a racist as it gets
— Americanvoice4 (@usa_gh) January 15, 2018
What makes him racist? Because he wants to actually ENFORCE our immigration laws?
