She's Armenian-American.


Thanks! Seems that (almost) everyone is seen as a HUMAN by this President. EXCELLENT!

Looks like she's an African American/Black. Nah... can't be.
He just keeps on doing the right thing for his country, I hate that!

No. Not really a big deal.

Presidents have the right to do these sorts of things and it seems normal for presidents to give audience to other elitists, to listen to their wants and desires.

Why does that matter?

Are you playing the race card, even though race has nothing to do with this?

Well according to the liberal camp Trump hates black people...So yeah...It kinda does matter.

This isn't going to change my opinion of Trump much but I think he did a good thing here and should be recognized for it.

Ms. Johnson was basically a go between who passed along messages in a drug trafficking operation. From what I've read, she didn't personally handle, sell or direct anyone else to do so. Prosecutors got 10 of her co-defendants to testify against her for reduced sentences and she in turn got life + 25 years which would be outrageous even if she was personally trafficking narcotics.

If you read her back story, it sure doesn't seem like she went into the drug business for any reason but desperation. Sure, she made mistakes along the way and she deserved some punishment for her involvement in a criminal enterprise but not life + 25 years ffs.

So, good use of presidential powers in this case.

No, it doesn't matter. Unless you care what liberals think and feel obligated to produce counter-narratives in his defense.

I know people that make damn good money to do such things, and here you guys are doing it for free like a bunch of suckers.

It's never going to be good enough is it?


Has Trump pardoned anyone who he wasn't either asked to pardon by a celebrity or that had political benefits for him personally? Has he reviewed any of the non-famous people's pardon application that are sitting in the Pardon Office? From what I've heard of his pardons so far, he hasn't gone through the Pardon Office on any of them.

Sorry. I'm not up-to-date on what memes/sayings the teenagers use on the internet these days.

So I don't know what that means, but my point still stands.

I don't agree with labeling her a porn star but it is a fact that she first came to prominence thanks to her sex tape.

I do have to say I'm looking forward to the cognitive dissonance that will happen to both sides over this. I mean, Kim did vote for Hillary.


Talking "cognitive dissonance" when Trump does the exact thing that Obama did it is all cheers for Obama and all ridicule for Trump. How do people actually see any logic in all that?

Cognitive Dissonance

Lol WTH kind of reply is that? Who is the porn star in this case...


That would be Kim Kardashian. You didn't know that rose to fame through her porn? Sorry, I'm not going to link it for you. Do your own search.



He is also going to pardon Dwight Hammond Jr., 73, and Steven Hammond, 46 next I bet you...not sure if your porn stars will be involved with this one.


Oh? You gotta link for who Trump is GOING to pardon? Last I heard, he was GOING to pardon Rod Blagojevich and Martha Stewart.



I'm really trying not to bash you


That's not a credible statement.

Does this mean that a non-celebrity will have access to the White House to ask Trump for a pardon if their relative or close family member is jailed because of the same non-violent circumstances?

I highly doubt it! Nothing like catering to celebrities and the rich. I thought he was for the working class? Many of his pardons have been given to well publicized cases.

No President should have absolute pardoning power. This is just too much power given to a U.S. President without any checks and balances to his decision. Pardoning power without evaluation by a non-partisan committee should be left to dictators. A title Trump would love.


But...
Trump can pardon himself!
And if you don't believe him, it's to the FAKE NEWS! SHIFTY, CROOKED...
Hell, I just realized Trumps tweets could be a fun ad lib!

Here we go:

"Can you believe [ALL CAPS DEROGATORY ADJECTIVE][person] tries to [whatever] ME? I'm the POTUS! I can pardon myself. I can [verb] all of the [female body part] I want!
FAKE NEWS!

Okie dokie, I will make sure to address only your idiotic murmurings from now on. Remember: No common memes!!!
