‘Holy f*ckballs’: Internet stunned by Trump’s ‘insane’ boast that he can pardon himself for anything

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday morning asserted that he can pardon himself if he’s ever indicted — and despite all of his antics, Twitter was shocked.

“As has been stated by numerous legal scholars, I have the absolute right to PARDON myself, but why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong?” the president tweeted.

“This is where we are,” radio host Mike Signorile tweeted. “It’s called dictatorship. Do not forget it.”

CNN’s Keith Boykin, meanwhile, noted how “unprecedented” the claim was.

“Even Nixon didn’t try to pardon himself,” Boykin wrote.

Published

on

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion.
