I can't be the only one who sees the connection between the crimes committed by those Trump pardoned and the very articles of Impeachment Trump faced, and Trump's own failed business practices.  I mean, you can't make this stuff up. He did sprinkle in a couple of well-deserved pardons to deflect criticism that ALL of them were politically motivated.

You AREN'T the only one! Observers of Trump have long seen the trait of projection, how he sees & even obsesses over things in others that are very close to home for him. E.g. calling people out for being thin-skinned, weak, or cowardly, for name calling or lying, for supposedly not being supportive of the military, for playing golf too often ( ;D) etc.

So this is not exactly surprising.

Birds of a Feather.  Trump protects corrupt politicians and businessmen, because he is a corrupt politician and businessman, and the entire Republican Senate, except for Mitt, are his express enablers.  Reminds me of King Noah.

Whatever your politics, I would have thought most people would struggle to see how pardoning Blagojevic is consistent with draining the swamp. Then, as we all know, I'm just a commie pinko subversive....

Scruffydog, I have no idea how much American TV makes it to your airways.  Were you aware that Blagojevic was a contestant in 2010 on Trump's Celebrity Apprentice?  Trump has always chosen controversial contestants for these shows, so I can only assume Blago was on his short list of the people who might be pardoned.

We have our own version of The Apprentice with a different host. Nice to know that justice is now determined by fake reality TV

Oh man, this is going to be so great. 

The orange Voldemort is going to figuratively choke slam every Democrat who was on stage last night.

The only one who is not a candidate for the nursing home dementia ward is Booty judge, and the Democrat party hates gay people even worse than it hates African-Americans and Orthodox Jews.

Gonna love November. 

I am going to LOL so hard on Tuesday when Great-Grandpa Joe wins, and then they have to take his keys away because he can't drive safely.

Can.  Not. Wait!

You understand that Donald Trump is only 3 1/2 years younger than Joe Biden, right? So, if your gonna engage in ageist mockery, at least be equitable with it.

... I don't even know what you're trying to do here, TL, apart from provoking with absurd offensive and demonstrably false generalizations.

Unless this is some weird parody of how you think many of those who differ with you politically speak and act?

I am so enjoying this.  Cue the Youtube videos of people screaming at the sky when President Trump wins again in November.  I think I'll open my "cute little pink hat" concession stand right now and avoid the rush.

It's "you're"   ;)   If President Trump is an old guy, at least he's MY old guy.

Well, at least TL openly acknowledged that Trump is equivalent to Lord Voldemort.  I guess that makes Turkey a Death Eater.

My old guy is 95, talks with God, and rolls out a world-wide initiative every other week or so.  ;)
