Sanders On Sheriff Arpaio: He’s A Bully [VIDEO]

Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders on Thursday called a controversial Arizona sheriff a bully and accused him of engaging in “un-American and uncivilized” law enforcement tactics.

Sanders’s comments at a campaign rally here were directed at long-serving Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who prides himself on being β€œAmerica’s toughest sheriff” and operates an infamous β€œtent city” jail where inmates endure extreme outdoor heat.

Sanders’s appearance was part of a series of stops planned ahead of Tuesday’s primary in Arizona, which he hopes will help him regain traction in a Democratic nominating contest he is losing to Hillary Clinton.
