Re: The Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

CNN just said that Trump pardoned Steve Bannon.

Was Bannon involved with the Jan. 6th rioting or the planning?

That was the reason people were telling him not to pardon Bannon. If it comes out Bannon was more involved in the insurrection then we know now, that might hurt Trump in the impeachment trial.

Trump pardoning the guy that conned millions from Trump's supporters is fitting.

Even at this stage of realizing Trump's not the person he thought he was, he still can't put a couple brain-cells together to realize Trump duped him on the fraudulent election garbage.

It is kind of sad that only now that you're noticing that he always leaves his supporters out to dry.

Except that you believed his lies when he said, each time he threw another supporter under the bus, that the supporter wasn't good enough, loyal enough, faithful enough.

The only people he has left are of the likes of Roger Stone, who isn't right in the head, and those politicians who want to win the control box that's wired to you.

Also rumored to get pardoned is possibly the most crooked mayor in USA history-Kwame Kilpatrick(ex-Detroit Mayor).

He currently is serving 28 years in Federal prison in Louisiana for numerous crimes.

It's almost 1230am ET and the pardon list is supposed to be released at any moment.

I was going to try to stay awake and see the list, but I figure I’ll just get angry. I’ll just go to bed and look at the list when I wake up. Then I can get angry and take it out on my co workers. That’s the rare lose-lose-win scenario.

Cool that heís pardoning random criminals because thatís the only power he has left.

CNN story was saying he was leaning against pardoning himself and his family because WH counsel said heíd have to say what specific crimes they were for. Of course he can just ignore all the advice and rules.

They said he was leaning against pardoning the rioters as well.

Why wouldn't Trump have RBG on the list,her decision making skills allowed him to appoint a 3rd Supreme Court seat. He probably wishes all Democrats were as helpful to him

Harriet Tubman would already be on the $20 if not for Trump and his Treasury Secretary.

Every time I hear a Trumper talking about how great and strong and hardworking and smart he is, all I can think, with a bewildered expression on my face, is, "Him? Really? ... him?!"
Spoiler:






It's like they're living in an alternate reality where he's not a whiny, ignorant, lazy, incompetent asshole who doesn't give two shits about anyone but himself.

Yes, he's the polar opposite of "great, strong, hard-working, and smart", but how can one explain that to those who are too blind, deaf, and dumb to discern the obvious?

Not only is he not right in the head, his head isn't right. Its slope-like "lacking enough space for a normal-sized brain" shape. What's that all about?! He almost looks like the aftermath of an unsuccessful shotgun-suicide attempt.

I don't think this topic is used up, even if the presidency is.

I think we need a new thread for Former President Trump - the Wilderness Years.

Trumpers are acting like the world is about to end because their cult leader is less than 4 hours from being out of office

The liberals are acting like it's a new world.

The voter fear and despair that Trump tapped into aren't going away, nor are the causes.
