Border Town Sheriff Mocks Liberals For ‘Coyote’ Ordeal: ‘This Is Not A Joke To Us Out Here’


An Arizona sheriff defended President Trump against what he saw as unfair attacks against the president’s use of the term “coyotes” during last week’s debate.

“Border security is a big issue for us,” Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb said in a video posted on Twitter. “Now, this week during the presidential debate, they talked about border security. And President Trump talked about how important it was to secure America.”

“And he talked about coyotes,” Lamb continued. “Now, there’s a lot of you, even some with blue checkmarks, who think you’re smarter than all of us, that were making fun of the president for using the term coyote.”

“So I’m going to give you a little education today. You see this, is a coyote,” Lamb said while holding up a picture of an actual, wild coyote. “Not what the president was referring to. We have plenty of these out here in Arizona.”

“This is what the president was referring to,” Lamb said while holding up a picture of border smugglers often referred to as “coyotes.” “These are also coyotes, paid by the cartel to bring people and drugs into our country.”

“Well, this might be a joke to some of you, this is not a joke to us out here,” Lamb continued. “Nor is it a joke to the hundreds of thousands of people who have been trafficked by the cartel or the millions of people who have lost loved ones from drug addiction.”

“We take it serious,” Lamb concluded, adding that he’s thankful for a president “who also takes it serious and believes in border security. Please stand with us in protecting our borders. God Bless.”

The video comes after verified Twitter accounts appeared confused about Trump’s reference to coyotes during the second and final presidential debate and mocked him for the statement.

“Children are brought here by coyotes and lots of bad people, cartels, and they’re brought here, and it’s easy to use them to get into our country,” Trump said during the debate. “We now have a stronger border as we’ve ever had. We’re over 400 miles of brand new wall, you see the numbers, and we let people in, but they have to come in legally.”

“Coyotes, dawg?” former ESPN host Jemele Hill tweeted roughly 20 minutes after calling Trump a “f—ing moron.”

“Did @realDonaldTrump just say 545 kids they can’t find their parents for came over through ‘cartels and coyotes’?!” Democratic Georgia state Rep. Dar’shun Kendrick tweeted. “How the hell does a coyote bring a whole human across the border?! Lord—–stop talking.”
