‘Watch out, Joe!’ Bernie Sanders threatens Sheriff Arpaio for ‘ambushing’ wife

Perhaps Bernie Sanders is considering using some strong-arm tactics should, Heaven forbid, he be elected president.

Faced with harsh criticism from Hillary Clinton’s supporters over his wife’s encounter with Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Bernie Sanders struck back Thursday.

Jane Sanders visited Arpaio’s famed Tent City on Wednesday and engaged in a debate with the sheriff about conditions in the Arizona prison camp.

On Thursday, Sanders said Arpaio “ambushed” his wife and added that if he becomes president, the sheriff better “watch out.”

“It’s easy for bullies like Sheriff Arpaio to pick on people who have no power,” Sanders said. “If I am elected president — the president of the United States does have power. So watch out, Joe,” he said to a cheering crowd of about 900, USA Today reported.
