Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, November 13, 2020

CNN reports that Trump has been asking aides since 2017 if he can self-pardon, which is just an amazing thing to behold given that he had just been inaugurated and apparently his first order of business as president was to be like, "Soooo ... I was talking with some people and they were asking me, 'Hey, Don, you're president. You know these things, these pardons, are you allowed to do them on yourself?' And I thought, That's a great question. I had never thought of that but it's a beautiful question."

If you don't grab yourself a pardon on the way out the door, son, you're a loser.

Trump will write himself a Federal pardon and then sign an Executive Order covering himself from New York State, whose Electoral Votes he will officially reclaim.

You can pardon yourself. On one condition. You must take these two crayons and correctly color in the flag of the United States Of America.

"NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!"

Mike Pence is so going to be president for a day...

Trump's best bet would be to resign and get Pence to pardon him.

It worked for Tricky Dick, and the GOP still worships Tricky Dick.

I see a clear path forward here, to Trump's 2024 Comeback Run.

We will be lucky to get rid of Trump. 70+ million members of his cult will gladly welcome a dictatorship. And those 70+ million are better armed than the other side. By a lot...

That'll only help him for federal crimes.

Trump'll end up making Nixon look like Abraham Lincoln by comparison.

BTW, watch Nixon's concession after he lost the 1962 California governor's race.

While complimented Pat Brown on his win and said good things, there was a lot of Trump in there.

"So, let's say for instance I defrauded the country by selling N-95's to Putin....I'm good, right?"

I would like for Trump to leave office thinking that he pardoned himself.

Who believes that Trump will have his own inauguration event at the same time as Biden. He thinks it will draw a tremendous crown ~ even bigger than Joe Biden's crowd.

I hear Rudy Giuliani is in charge. He's already booked space at Waldorf Astoria (Heating and Plumbing.)

Trump has proven Trump can do whatever Trump wants.

Trump said so.

Yes, and we know he'll continue to try to "twitter destroy" the lives of any GOP Senator who cooperates with President Biden.

Trump's so buttsore he's never going to shut up.

Don't look now, but the Trump coup is underway. Replace top CIA and DOD officials. Unleash AG Barr to pursue bogus investigations into the election. Hold mass rally with stupid fanatical right wing fascists. Is anyone paying attention?

That's not a coup.

That's Trump's version of burning the house down on his way out. And he's not done by a longshot. He wants to hand over a "scorched earth" administration to Joe Biden.

Not unexpected I might say.

Oh we're paying attention alright. And what we are witnessing is failure on all fronts. The ship is sinking, if not already sunk. This is politics in the 21st century. It must be dramatic otherwise you're not going to drum up the appropriate emotions in the base.

Why are you obsessing on a rally?

A rally isn't a coup.

In fact, by rally standards, nobody showed up. It was a failure, a bust, a last hoorah, the death rattle of a tool in Trump's arsenal.

Those who could borrow gas money left the same day.
