McCain leads the trash-talk brigade slamming Trump’s pardon for Arpaio; he should show ‘remorse’

Powered by Topple

Many of President Trump‘s enemies were just waiting for him to announce his decision to pardon former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio so they could pounce with self-righteous and baseless attacks.

Trump had hinted at the impending pardon of the controversial Mariciopa County Sheriff earlier in the week at a rally in Phoenix but made his announcement during a busy news night as attention was focused on a category 4 hurricane aimed at Texas.

Both of Arizona’s senators slammed the president for his decision.

Republican Sen. John McCain blasted Trump with a blunt statement claiming the pardon “undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law.”

Others on Twitter could not contain their shock and disappointment, with liberal members of the media and left-wing organizations unloading on Trump for pardoning the sheriff who was convicted last month of criminal contempt when he ignored a court order to stop detaining suspected undocumented immigrants.

Not surprisingly, there was little vocal support in Hollywood.

But while the critics were loud and whiny in their shocked responses, there were plenty of others who celebrated, like Arizona Senator Jeff Flake’s Republican primary opponent, Kelli Ward.
