We’re going to have a lot of hot takes Wednesday now that President Trump has granted Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn a full pardon. As Twitchy reported, straight-news reporter Andrea Mitchell of NBC News didn’t even name Flynn in her tweet; she referred to him only as “the disgraced ex National Security Advisor” and asked, “Who’s next?”
It will be tough, though, to top this hot take from the New York Times editorial board’s Mara Gay. The best part, if you play the clip, is the “Mmmm” from MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace as she enunciates her approval. Gay says we should all be shocked because Flynn’s pardon is a moral outrage, and further went on to paraphrase Martin Luther King by saying, “Never forget that everything that was done in Nazi Germany was illegal.”
Historian? I think not..

Gotta get “Nazi” out of your system by January, so use it often until then.
I guess she missed the memo on uniting as one country…

Comparing the pardoning of @GenFlynn in any way to Nazi Germany demonstrates a breathtaking level of moral and intellectual bankruptcy.

He didn't burn books, annex the Sudentanland and Czechoslovia, conquer Western Europe or launch Operation Barbarossa though. You gotta cut him a bit of slack for that?

It was liberals who were burning books this year when J.K. Rowling announced that biological females are women.
Who the hell is she? This man is a retired General who served his country honorably and was the Director of DIA..

Obama, by comparison, granted clemency 1,927 times during his eight-year tenure, including 212 pardons and 1,715 commutations.

Barack Obama granted clemency to a whole lot of people arrested for firearms violations, usually in connection with drug dealing.
She’s literally insane.

And she has a huge say in what appears in the New York Times every day.
A simple “reeeeeeee “ would’ve been fine

These are truly sick people and you ain’t seen nothing yet. Watch what happens in the coming 4 years. The “tolerant progressives”

Remember way back in the day when actor Ron Silver announced at Bill Clinton’s inauguration that “those are our planes now”? Wait until these liberal fascists are untethered.
‘Activist hackery’: Andrea Mitchell’s take on Trump pardoning Michael Flynn sounds like it came straight from the DNC https://t.co/PfcWlypMhe
