Judge rebukes ’criminal’ Trump, says he pardons only child killer or turkey

Criticizing President Donald Trump’s wave of pardons, many of which were controversial, a US federal judge called the president ’criminal’ and rebuked him. During an interview with Associated Press, Judge Robert Pratt said, ’Apparently to get a pardon, one has to be either a Republican, a convicted child murderer or a turkey. It’s not surprising that a criminal like Trump pardons other criminals.’

At least this judge is honest and truthful. I mean Trump is a criminal why do you think he's being investigated by NY attorney General Letitia James. I cannot wait to find out what kind of dirt they will find inside and beyond the Trump Organization. Or as I like to call them the Trump Crime Family.

I completely do not care who Trump pardons. Anyone in prison can be pardoned, and deserves it just as much as the next person - which is to say, it is unearned, undeserved, and purely mercy in its nature. As it should be.
