When I clicked to see the tweet it said “tweets protected.”

Looks like someone took their account private.

I don't think the link is working even for some jerk.*

Here's the tweet in which Small was trolled in a comment.

His presser claimed that the FBI pretended to be journalists at one his campaign rallies -- in 2000. :mememe: And there was some vague reference to Montgomery's "junk" (data). :yankyank:

I think the only "press" that swallowed Arpaio's release was ... Rondeau. :thumbs:

And now Arpaio is whining to the DOJ (yaknow, the folks who convicted him) that there was (jooooooish!) interference that caused him to lose in 2016. :roll:

Ariz. Rep. (AP): Court 'overstepped' in challenge to Joe Arpaio's pardon, Justice Department says:
The U.S. Justice Department says an appeals court overstepped its bounds when it ordered the appointment of a special prosecutor to pursue an appeal involving a pardon of retired Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

* * *

Lawyers are now making arguments over whether the request for a special prosecutor should be heard by a larger panel of the appeals court. The Justice Department argued in a June 22 brief that the appeals court lacks the power to appoint a special prosecutor at this stage in the litigation.

* * *

The Justice Department said in its appellate brief that "the government does not abdicate the prosecutorial function when it agrees with a defendant on a legal question." Arpaio's attorneys argued that appointing a special prosecutor "raises serious questions about whether the court is actively participating in the prosecution."

* * *

One group consisting of 11 Democratic members of Congress said in a brief that the pardon encroached on the independence of the courts.

"The administration has sought to squelch any legal challenge to the president's pardon at issue and to claim for itself the role of final arbiter of the president's powers," attorneys for the Democrats wrote.

The Hill: Joe Arpaio says he was duped by Sacha Baron Cohen:
Former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio admitted that he was tricked into giving an interview to Sacha Baron Cohen, becoming the latest political figure to acknowledge becoming part of the comedian's upcoming project.

Cohen was in disguise as a Finnish comedian during the October 2017 interview, Arpaio recalled in an interview with Breitbart News.

"I felt uncomfortable with some of the words they were using but I had to live through it. I am not the type of guy who gets up and walks out," he told Breitbart. "I never walked out in thousands of interviews. I just take it."

He said the experience made him "very uncomfortable" because of some of the language that Cohen's character used, such as "golden shower." He said he documented the experience in a personal memo shortly after the interview.

"Something told me I had better document this," he said.

I took this picture when I was on my way to a colonoscopy on Thursday. For those of you in the Phoenix area, this was located on the northwest corner of Higley Rd. and University Dr. in Mesa. My slogan: "You'll get rootered if you vote for Joe!" For the record, I've seen many more signs for Martha McSally and Kelli Ward.

Think Progress: It’s probably time for Joe Arpaio to log off the internet:
"When someone commits a crime, they must do the time."

Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of criminal contempt last July and served no jail time, tweeted Tuesday that “when someone commits a crime, they must do the time.”

Oh, the irony.

Breitbart: EXCLUSIVE – Sheriff Joe: Sacha Baron Cohen Duped Me Posing as ‘Finnish Comedian’:
Speaking in a Breitbart News interview, Joe Arpaio, the former Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, detailed allegedly being duped into an interview with Sacha Baron Cohen, who Arpaio says posed as a famous comedian from Finland.

Arpaio, currently running for a U.S. Senate seat in Arizona, said that during the interview he became “very uncomfortable” with some of the words that Cohen’s character allegedly used, including “blowjob,” “hand job” and “golden shower.” He said he was made to believe the interview was being filmed live and that 2 million people were watching.

* * *

Arpaio said the saga began when he was contacted in the Fall of 2017 by two purported producers going by the names of Phil Simon and Corey Fielder. He said they told him that they were associated with a feature being sold to Showtime and that the show selected him as one of the twenty “most popular” people in America. He was told that he would be interviewed by a famous Finnish comedian.

The former sheriff noted that at the time of the interview request he was a private citizen and did not have his sheriff’s department staff to vet the interview.
Sheriffs have staff to vet interviewers? :think:
Arpaio said that he arrived in Los Angeles on October 11, 2017, and that the production team brought him to the filming facility. Arpaio said he was surprised that the interview was not being filmed in a normal television studio but instead in a warehouse-like facility. He said that he was going to Los Angeles at the time anyway to support California congressional candidate Omar Navarro, who is running against Rep. Maxine Waters.

According to Arpaio, the production team led him to believe that the host was a Trump supporter. He also noted signing a contract, writing, “I signed some kind of contract before filming, which I have done numerous times, did not read all the info.”

He said he thought it was unusual that they didn’t offer to powder his face before the interview.

Arpaio said that when he arrived on set, the production team immediately made the interview seem like it was live even though he says he was never told that it was purportedly a live interview.

He said that there was text on a screen claiming that over 2 million people were watching the interview live. “I was surprised it was live,” said Arpaio.

Arpaio does not recall the name that Cohen used besides posing as a famous comedian from Finland.

He described Cohen as using props during the interview, included boxes that contained cars. As sheriff, Arpaio famously advocated for stopping the cars of those suspected of being illegal aliens.

Questions he was asked involved immigration, guns, Trump playing golf, and running jails in Finland and the U.S., the former sheriff said.

Arpaio recalled Cohen using “highly inappropriate” phraseology that he says made him “very uncomfortable.”

“He came up with certain words which were hard for me to hear,” Arpaio said, including “blowjob” and “talking about people working for” a “hand job.”

So I started getting a little pissed,” he said. Cohen also mentioned “golden shower,” Arpaio stated. Arpaio’s typed notes to document some of those words.

“I felt uncomfortable with some of the words they were using but I had to live through it. I am not the type of guy who gets up and walks out,” he said. “I never walked out in thousands of interviews. I just take it.”

“I was kind of shocked,” Arpaio continued. “But I figured this is Finland and this is a famous comedian.”

Asked how he thinks he will be portrayed, Arpaio replied that “I was very careful in responding to controversial issues. Profiling. Illegal immigration. They were hitting me with all of that.”
Too also: Slate: Watch Sacha Baron Cohen Trick Republicans Into Supporting Guns for Toddlers Program:
In the video posted Sunday morning in advance of the show’s premiere that night, a heavily made up Cohen poses as an Israeli anti-terrorist expert, Erran Morad. As Morad, Cohen has the mission to get guns in the hands of schoolchildren as young as four years old, saying that efforts to arm teachers are insufficient. And he gets a lot of help for his “Kinder-Guardians” initiative from the gun lobby—as well as some Republican leaders.

"Sheriffs have staff to vet interviewers? "

Arpaio had a highly paid publicity consultant on staff when he was Sheriff. Of course, he did leave many crimes, mostly rape and crimes against immigrants, go unsolved because of spending money on his Latino roundups and publicity consultant. All police and sheriff departments (unless they are extremely small) have some kind of media department, or usually just a person, but having a well known publicity consultant on full time staff is beyond the pale. He is the very definition of media whore.
