TRUMP PARDONS SERIAL ARSONISTS TO TRIGGER THE LIBS

Since discovering that the constitution gives him the somewhat controversial power to absolve criminals who are also his friends, Donald Trump has pardoned more people and commuted more sentences in his first 18 months in office than any of his three immediate predecessors. The pardoning spree continued on Tuesday, as Trump issued two more before jetting off to Europe to stomp all over NATO, this time clearing the names of father-son arsonist duo Dwight and Steven Hammond, Oregon cattle ranchers whose 2016 fight against the federal government became a conservative cause célèbre. While presidents have historically waited to issue high-profile pardons until their final years in office, Trump—who is continually stalled in enacting his agenda by irritating roadblocks like Congressional approval—has exercised no such restraint. Instead, eschewing such norms as the five-year waiting period customary for pardon requests to be submitted to the Department of Justice, the president has seized on this nearly-unlimited executive power to feed his die-hard base—affirming, in their eyes, his godlike power to set the universe to rights.

Of course, at the time it was happening, Trump had a completely different opinion:

At the time, Trump condemned the Bundy occupation, arguing that Barack Obama should negotiate with the Bundys and their followers. “You cannot let people take over federal property,” he told The New York Times. “You can’t, because once you do that, you don’t have a government anymore. I think, frankly, they’ve been there too long. . . . At a certain point,” he added, “you have to do something and you have to be firm and you have to be strong, you have to be a government.”
