Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio doesn't want to be called the (obviously self-proclaimed) "toughest" sheriff in America anymore, he wants to be called the "oldest" sheriff in America.
Although Arpaio has liked to fashion himself as "tough" in the past, we can definitely confirm he's old -- at least as old as some of the folks sucking down Jell-O at Valley old-people homes.
"There is discrimination, believe it or not, against senior citizens -- big time," Arpaio told some blonde lady. "Nobody wants to talk about it. So, I'm 80, and I'm known as the 'toughest sheriff in America,' but I want to be known as the 'oldest sheriff in America.'"
