Sheriff Joe Arpaio recorded an interview with Aaron Klein (pictured right), author, radio host and writer for WorldNetDaily, to be broadcast this Sunday night. An anonymously bylined article at WND talks about the interview, and picks out the Sheriff’s support for Donald Trump in its headline: “Sheriff Joe’s Got Trump’s Back.” Sheriff Joe criticizes the backlash to Trump’s remarks about Mexican immigrant rapists by saying:
I thought we have freedom of speech in this country
Well we do have free speech, free speech for Trump and free speech for his critics.
For our purposes, the part of the interview that is notable is a somewhat vague section of the article:
Arpaio added that Trump “did talk about the birth certificate in the past.”
“You know I’ve been working on that. So I don’t know. I guess you got to be politically correct when you run for office,” he said.
I’ll not try to guess exactly what “I’ve been working” means.
