Infamous birther posse sheriff Joe Arpaio lost his bid for reelection and will soon be replaced by a less disgusting person, but before he goes America's racist uncle is holding one last press conference to talk about President Obama's birth certificate.
PHOENIX - Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Chief Investigator Mike Zullo will be talking about President Barack Obama’s birth certificate on Thursday.
According to MCSO, Arpaio and Zullo will be presenting the “newest revelations” to the investigation of Obama’s birth certificate.
The press conference will be held at 4 p.m. on Thursday in Phoenix.
The unforgettable photo placed at the top of his post was taken the last time Arpaio held a press conference to talk about the president's birth certificate. In that press conference, Arpaio talked about the president's certificate having "layers" that somehow proved it was forged.
The spectacle of that press conference was so absurd that it more or less served as a breaking point for congressional Republican leaders who had, up until that point, gladly danced around the issue by neither confirming or confronting birtherism. "I take him at his word" they said.
But that wasn't the end for Republican voters or despot-elect Donald Trump who, as recently as two months ago, took credit for pushing birtherism.
I'd like to say this story will be put to rest after President Obama leaves office, but I don't believe it will be. There are still people in the world who believe the Apollo moon landing was a hoax and racism is a much more powerful force than Cold War-era conspiracy theorem.
