John Oliver on the danger of Trump pardoning Arpaio

Oliver highlighted just how proud the former sheriff is of his work. He has bragged about forcing inmates—who recieve only two meals a day–to eat baloney so rotten it turned green. In 2001, he boasted that he was "the first in the world" to put women in chain gangs. He even shook a finger in the air to celebrate the accomplishment. He starred in a reality show called Smile...You're Under Arrest, in which people with outstanding warrants were "pranked" before being cuffed and taken into custody. “Arpaio broke the rules he was sworn to uphold, rules that are put in place to protect citizens from a government going out of control,"

Oliver concluded Sunday night. "Trump giving him a pass for everything you’ve seen tonight, and saying he was just doing his job, was a loud confirmation that for the next few years law enforcement won’t necessarily be expected to do their jobs the way the Constitution or the courts say they should.”
