President Trump’s tweet this morning about pardoning himself raised some eyebrows:
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? In the meantime, the never ending Witch Hunt, led by 13 very Angry and Conflicted Democrats (& others) continues into the mid-terms!

Resistance media and others immediately flipped, but before the 2016 election the same type of question, albeit hypothetical, was explored and wasn’t considered to be as ridiculous.
