YEAH, WE'RE LOOKING AT YOU, ARIZONA: LA Times Interviews Two AZ Trump Fans, Calls It Reporting; SAD!

The Los Angeles Times published an article this morning that appears solely designed to bolster any stereotypes Angelenos may have of Arizona.

Under the headline "Trump's first week: For many in Arizona, it doesn't get any better than this", LA Times' border reporter (based in Tucson) Nigel Duara wrote up his interviews with two Trump supporters in a Goodyear parking lot and phoned it in.

Interviewing an 84-year old white man and a 36-year old white woman, Duara delivered his sweeping thesis sentence: "Here, more than 120 miles from the border, Arizona voters outraged with President Obama’s executive orders that welcomed the foreign-born to America are delighted with Trump’s first week in office, when his actions seemed to have done the opposite."

As Arizonans' new hero might say (if the shoes had been on opposite feet) SAD!
