Arpaio Says He’d Give Hillary Clinton Free ‘Pink Underwear’ At Trump Rally

AP

Joe Arpaio said Monday at a rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump that he would give Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton a free pair of “pink underwear” if she’d visit his Tent City jail.

The Maricopa County, Arizona sheriff was referring to the pink undergarments he makes his inmates wear in an effort to curb crime.

“I’ve had four presidential candidates visit me in the tents. Four! And they all lost. I tried to get Hillary down here, but she’s too smart,” Arpaio said. “She won’t come to the tents. I’d even give her a free pair of pink underwear! You guys don’t probably know what I’m talking about. I guess most of you do, right?”

Arpaio also makes inmates wear pink handcuffs for “better inventory control,” according to his website.
