(all opinions here are mine and mine alone)
In his last days. the lame-duck president is pardoning his cronies--those who lied to keep him out of trouble with Robert Mueller--Jarret Kushner's father (who was locked up by the president's former shoe shine boy, Chris Christie!) and killers for Blackwater, contractors who killed civilians in the Middle East.
Hard to take.
And what's to come?
Most Constitutional scholars think there are flaws in what he's doing, but who can act on that?
There are also thousands of prisoners who have reabilitated or were given overly harsh sentences who have applied for pardons who are ignored as the president pardons friends and relatives of people in the White House.
Look for more of these inexplicable pardons in the days to come.
And will he try to pardon himself? Pardon himself while condemning three more to execution before he leaves office?
Wait and see.
