ANALYSIS/OPINION:

President Donald Trump said that he pardoned former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio because he is a hero.

Mr. Arpaio is no hero — he is nothing but a lawbreaking racist bully and thug, reminiscent of Alabama’s Bull Connor. He rounded up those who merely looked like illegal aliens (though many weren’t) and housed them in outdoor tents that resembled concentration camps and cruelly mistreated them and trampled on their rights and human dignity. Mr. Arpaio was even one of the leaders of the birther movement.

Mr. Trump and Mr. Arpaio are birds of a feather.
