As you may remember, @RealSheriffJoe blocked Phoenix New Times on Twitter last week, but we remain determined to keep you informed on U.S. Senate candidate Joe Arpaio's social media musings.
This morning, he's upset because one of his opponents, Dr. Kelli Ward, blocked him on Twitter.
It's interesting that my opponent falsely claims @RealSheriffJoe won't debate her. The facts are that she actually blocked @RealSheriffJoe on her twitter account two weeks ago because she couldn't handle the truth.— Sheriff Joe Arpaio (@RealSheriffJoe) July 24, 2018
He says she's accusing him of avoiding a debate. But apparently, he only wants a confrontation on social media, and accuses her of blocking him on Twitter "because she couldn't handle the truth."
We need you on that wall, Joe, we need you on that wall. Just don't fall off.
