As Twitchy readers know, Ben Rhodes took to Twitter to justify the many pardons of Obama after Trump pardoned Arpaio. In case you forgot his smug, sanctimonious tweet (or tried to wipe it from your mind), we have it here:
Obama used his pardon and commutation power to give a second chance to people who deserved empathy, not racists who showed none. https://t.co/KXhBQk5MHu

Criminals who deserved empathy.
A murderous bomber, a traitor, and countless drug dealers and terrorists. You're either a heinous liar or an idiot, and you're not an idiot. https://t.co/DNdC9FflLO

C’mon James, murderous bombers, traitors (who think they’re chicks), drug dealers and terrorists deserve empathy … right?
Some of who used their pardon as a one way ticket back into prison. Good job, Obama! ??

This is true, many of these souls who needed empathy broke the law and landed their asses right back in jail.
But tell us more about how RAD Obama’s pardons were, Ben.

Don’t you LOVE how the Left is accusing James of ‘whataboutism’ here? Dude missed the point:
Wait, pardoning a guy for a contempt charge is worse than a guy that committed acts of sedition?

Any pardon Trump makes will ALWAYS be worse than the pardons their hero Obama made.
Three words: Oscar Lopez Rivera.

How quickly they forget Oscar.
Yes, "a murderous bomber, a traitor, and countless drug dealers and (gitmo) terrorists". In other words, Obama's base.
