Why the Arpaio Pardon Won't Hurt Trump in One Headline

[cap­tion id=“attachment_90427” align=“aligncenter” width=“800”] Deplorable me[/caption]In between reports on Hur­ri­cane Har­vey the press is man­ag­ing some out­rage over the par­don of Sher­iff Joe Arpaio who had been jailed for crim­i­nal contempt.

While the par­don was not a huge sur­prise (and the tim­ing on a Fri­day evening dur­ing a Cat 4 Hur­ri­cane makes the ulti­mate news dump) rest assured that by the time we get to the Sun­day News shows there will be experts on the left beat­ing their breasts over it and insist­ing that it’s a sign of racism on the part of Don­ald Trump and his sup­port­ers and breath­lessly pre­dict­ing their fall.

He’re why that effort will fail in a sin­gle headline:

Trump par­dons con­tro­ver­sial
Ari­zona sher­iff Joe Arpaio after he was
con­victed of con­tempt for refus­ing to stop
tar­get­ing ille­gal immi­grants for arrest

The amer­i­can vot­ers who gave Trump his majori­ties in 29 states under­stand that an ille­gal immi­grant is, by his very pres­ence, break­ing the law, and the very idea that it’s “con­tro­ver­sial” to tar­get those break­ing the law for arrest is so asi­nine and so nakedly polit­i­cal that sen­si­ble vot­ers reject it out of hand.

To be sure in the blue media this will be yet another sign of the apoc­a­lypse and the never trump forces in the GOP will find them­selves promi­nently fea­tured by the press con­demn­ing this.

How­ever that will­ing­ness to make this move and tele­graph it in advance know­ing the reac­tion it would cause will only rein­force the solid sup­port this pres­i­dent has among his base of deplorables who will see the media reac­tion and real­ize they still don’t get it.

I think Trump already has his path for 2020 mapped out and intends to have the media and left pave it for him.

They just haven’t fig­ured it out yet.

Deplorable me
In between reports on Hurricane Harvey the press is managing some outrage over the pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio who had been jailed for criminal contempt.

While the pardon was not a huge surprise (and the timing on a Friday evening during a Cat 4 Hurricane makes the ultimate news dump) rest assured that by the time we get to the Sunday News shows there will be experts on the left beating their breasts over it and insisting that it’s a sign of racism on the part of Donald Trump and his supporters and breathlessly predicting their fall.

He’re why that effort will fail in a single headline:

Trump pardons controversial
Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio after he was
convicted of contempt for refusing to stop
targeting illegal immigrants for arrest

The american voters who gave Trump his majorities in 29 states understand that an illegal immigrant is, by his very presence, breaking the law, and the very idea that it’s “controversial” to target those breaking the law for arrest is so asinine and so nakedly political that sensible voters reject it out of hand.

To be sure in the blue media this will be yet another sign of the apocalypse and the never trump forces in the GOP will find themselves prominently featured by the press condemning this.

However that willingness to make this move and telegraph it in advance knowing the reaction it would cause will only reinforce the solid support this president has among his base of deplorables who will see the media reaction and realize they still don’t get it.

I think Trump already has his path for 2020 mapped out and intends to have the media and left pave it for him.

They just haven’t figured it out yet.
