Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio has attacked Barack Obama’s birth certificate and called his birth certificate as a “phony document” in an interview on CNN.
“No doubt about it, we have the evidence, I’m not going to go into all the details, yeah, it’s a phony document,” Arpaio said on “Cuomo Primetime.”
Arpaio announced that he is running for the Arizona US Senate seat currently occupied by Sen. Jeff Flake, who is retiring from Congress at the end of his term.
Arpaio has touted “birtherism” in the past, and, when speaking to CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Wednesday evening, said he has proof that Obama’s birth certificate is fake.
“We have the evidence, nobody will talk about it, nobody will look at it, and anytime you want to come down or anybody we’ll be glad to show you the evidence,” Arpaio said.
Cuomo pressed Arpaio again on the topic: “So you believe that President Obama’s birth certificate is a phony?”
“No doubt about it,” Arpaio said.
