Finland’s turn

Yet another cringe-inducing Trump press conference with a fellow head of state, in which we’re forced to compare the grown-up on the left with the flailing grimacing aphasic toddler on the right.

A very rough and incomplete transcription of his response to the question about Arpaio – whom he insists on calling “Sheriff Joe” over and over and over and over…

“Well a lot of people think it was the right thing to do, and during a hurricane I thought the ratings would be a lot higher…[he thought it was very very unfair what they did to him] When I mentioned him the other night, you saw what a big crowd we had, the people went crazy…the place went absolutely crazy when I was in Arizona last week…Sheriff Joe is a great veteran of the military, great law enforcement official, won many many elections in the state of Arizona [then he gives a list of Clinton’s pardons, Obama’s pardons]…criminal LEEEAKER – you’ve heard the word leeeaker?…horrible horrible thing…Sheriff Joe is a patriot, Sheriff Joe loves our country, Sheriff Joe protected our borders, and Sheriff Joe was very unfairly treated by the Obama administration.”

The reporter laughs at him for bragging about having prepared remarks, because the question was a pretty obvious one.
