Trump Visits Arizona: Part 1

By Tiffany Rodgers

Trump is gracing Phoenix with his presence this evening. There will be protests a plenty. They are all planning on being peaceful, but no one can ever tell when it comes to Trump. We are not mincing words when it comes to our feelings about Trump either. We definately do not want his race baiting, narcissistic, tiny hands, orange skinned disgrace of a person to visit us here.

Lots of Arizonians believe Trump is going to pardon Joe Arpaio tonight. You could see why Arpaio and Trump would be such good friends. They exhibit racist tendencies, especially towards Latinos. A pardoned Arpaio would be a huge blow to the American judicial system. Joe Arpaio deserves all the punishment he could legally get. He is a racist, Latino-seeking raged individual. In addition, He continued to do so even after the federal courts told him not too.

He should not be pardoned. By pardoning him, Trump is quietly saying that it is OK to be in contempt of court. You don’t have to listen to what the judge rules. Of course, in a Trump world this is not as twisted as we once would’ve thought. Had Obama done such a thing, there would have been a huge uprising. There now exists a huge differentiation between the publics’  response to such things.

I live approximately ten minutes from the convention center. I will be watching and hoping we will see a repeat of the Boston peaceful protests. Tensions are extremely high though. Not only do a majority of people here not like Trump, but the Arpaio pardon just adds fuel to the fire. Unfortunately, there is a disturbing thickness in the air.

Arizona, let’s rise up against such hate and only show love. We are better than those who only exhibit hate.  Further updates will be published on the evolving situation.

Sarcasm, satire, and snark just seem to spew from my being. I may not be everyone's cup of tea, but who can refuse coffee? ?
