#1 (D-Smug) - let's see how he does without funding due to Sanctuary status. The Feds can always audit the State expenditure of Fed funds as well. Any time. Like now

#2 Opportunistic virtue signaling/camera hunting by hizzoner. The interesting part will be what he tells the cops to do if a bunch of "antifa" brownshirts show up. I hope the Governor has the NG standing by.

#3 In 2014, Arizona was among States most reliant on the Federal Government. There is no reason to think things are much different in 2017. For every $1.00 paid in Federal taxes, Arizonans get back $1.61. Phoenix most likely get its share of this boodle. It'd be a shame if this money dried up.

And partly why McCain vetoed the Senate insurance-repeal bill. The Arizona political machines said to: Democrat, GOP(e), Hispanic, Senior, Mormon... You name it, McCain'll listen to it. It's part of how he keeps getting re-elected.

#5 what are the odds that DJT uses the Phoenix visit to pardon Sheriff Joe?
during the rally, right there on tv?

#6 I don't know the odds and have no inside info but I've seen a pardon discussed. It was a travesty to begin with. An Obama-Soros effort went into defeating Arpaio and ousting him from office. George Soros contributed $2 million to a group working to defeat Joe Arpaio. I'd bet that Trump's supporters would back a full pardon.

#7 Tough titties.

You want your turn at the trough, then shut up.

Otherwise you can go fuck yourself and we'll spend that money we would normally give you on a fucking wall.

I'd much prefer a acquital on an appeal.

#9 Trump should find out who is likely to go against this fellow and give him a lot of camera time.

#10 Phoenix is a dem city. The greater area, Mesa and all is not. He speaks for the minority in the greater Phoenix area. When Trump comes the rally will be big and I think he only does it in Phoenix to piss off the dems.

#11 The rally may not be that big - it requires advance tickets and there has been a big move by the Dems to soak up as many tickets as possible and then not show up.

#12 Trump should just add additional days, let them buy up tickets and then donate that money to select Republicans in the state.
