If Trump's pardons cause butthurt by Dems, I can't imagine the size of the safe space they needed when Obama pardoned so many who were in similar situations.

I mean, tax fraud, false statements to the government, bank fraud, etc. MAIL FRAUD!! At a time when Dems refuse to believe there is any fraud that can be done by mail, the fact that Obama pardoned someone convicted of it says a lot.

Again, this is another example of both sides doing things that the other side doesn't agree with and then demonizes them for it while ignoring their own hypocrisy.

You can't say trump isn't corrupt so all you can do is PRETEND dems are just as corrupt and hope everyone is dumb enough to buy it.

Tell me how many of obama's FAMILY MEMBERS did he pardon?
How many were in jail for crimes they COMMITTED FOR OBAMA?
How many did he DANGLE PARDONS FOR if they stayed silent, broke the law for him, and protected him?

I'll wait...

Accepting a pardon is a full admission of guilt.

War criminals deserve no pardons. The war criminal pardons were the worst by far.

Killers convicted in courts of law freed because the crimes occurred in other countries while we were engaged in war. This is the horror of Trumpism. Impunity given to mass killers.

The political,pardons are an insult to justice and accountability. They are bad.

But to pardon Murder,just because it happened to people in countries we invaded illegally,stinks worse,is worse, because the offense was worse.

Trump is pure scum.

Pardoning war criminals says that nobody's life is worth anything,if Trump decides otherwise.

It sets a tone in the military, that wanton murder is acceptable. It is beneath the dignity and moral code of the commander in chief.

It makes warriors into hit men with no honor or decentcy. The whole concept of war becomes less about defense and more about power and pillage.

He has made America like Nazi Germany and other states that kill for it's own sake.

A true psychopath,and generally unfit for anything but prison,Trump is the ultimate

Chickenhawk.

The report on that 'incident' was pretty damning.
