As Twitchy reported earlier Saturday, California Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday pardoned five illegal aliens who were facing deportation, among 56 pardons and 14 commutations handed down.
President Donald Trump weighed in via Twitter on Saturday:
Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown pardoned 5 criminal illegal aliens whose crimes include (1) Kidnapping and Robbery (2) Badly beating wife and threatening a crime with intent to terrorize (3) Dealing drugs. Is this really what the great people of California want? @FoxNews

Activist Chelsea Handler decided to somehow conflate Trump’s tweet with the Sacramento police shooting of 22-year-old Stephon Clark earlier this month. Police say they believed Clark was brandishing a gun, but it turned out to be a cell phone.
Trump didn’t weigh in on the Clark shooting on Twitter, but Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders this week said it was a matter best left to local authorities:
"Certainly a terrible incident. It is something that is a local matter, something we feel should be left up to local authorities," @PressSec said about the Stephon Clark shooting. https://t.co/BHmCgdK7j1 pic.twitter.com/mfZLH6UaFC

Handler seemed outraged that the president chose to tweet about Brown’s pardons but not the Clark incident, going so far as to call Trump a racist (certainly not a first) and alleging that he most likely had committed all of the same crimes as those in line to be deported.
You know what we want? We want our police officers to stop killing innocent black men and then yell “stupid mother fucker,” at their lifeless body. Why don’t you tweet something about that? You are a racist, and you are most likely guilty of everything you just tweeted. https://t.co/48OqdiRptw

Wow — so Handler really thinks Trump is “most likely guilty” of kidnapping, robbery, domestic violence, and drug dealing, just like those in line to be deported? Not to mention stealing the election by colluding with Putin? Um, wasn’t she going to take a break from politics on Twitter or are we thinking of someone else?
What does 1 have to do with the other – you lost me? https://t.co/ad9YeAEJhG

#INeedABreakFrom this f*cking shrill idiot. Thought that "mistrial" and "acquitted" were the same thing. She's an idiot and so is anyone that takes their world view from idiot celebs. #MAGA https://t.co/GUlFna1J0n

How are your guards, with semi-automatic weapons doing?

Hey, they’re not shooting children, so it’s all good. And they don’t carry “semi-automatics” — we’re assuming they carry muskets.
OMG LOL! Chelsea Handler gets SUPER defensive about her armed security, royally STEPS in it https://t.co/O5AddDrxnd
