Tuesday’s Quick Hits: Election Day, Tweets, & Pardon

If I were president of the United States and I had a lawyer that told me I could pardon myself, I think I would hire a new lawyer. – U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa)

Here are some issues that caught my attention for today:

  • Election Day
  • Junior Tweets
  • Pardon Me

Election Day:

Today (June 5) is Primary Election Day in Montana. Besides Montana, there are primaries in California, New Jersey, Iowa, and New Mexico.

Don’t forget to vote! You can still register to vote in Montana! Click HERE for more information.

Thanks to all those who are running for public office. Good luck!

Junior Tweets:

After the New York Times did a story about U.S. Senator Jon Tester (D-Mont.) “not sweating” the President’s Tweets attacking him, Donald Trump, Jr., tweeted, “See you soon Jon. #maga.”

Many thought that was a sign that the President or his son (maybe both) would be coming to Montana to campaign for the winner of the Republican U.S. Senate primary and against Tester.

It is a big event when the President or former President comes to Montana to campaign.

It does not always work, though.

Pardon Me:

President Donald Trump had the constitutional scholars scratching their heads and our founding fathers rolling over in their graves when he tweeted this:

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! 

I’m not expert although I probably know more about our government and constitution than the President, but I don’t believe the President has the power to pardon himself.

That’s the problem we have with the current President, he’s not as intelligent as past Presidents. The gap is widening, too. Every time he Tweets.

If Trump did pardon himself, I think it would be easy to get the votes to impeach him.

So I say, “Go ahead, Mr. President. Try it.”

  1. Trump unable to remember words to "God Bless America" at replacement event he commissioned to prove his patriotism: https://t.co/LrMPaCEnen pic.twitter.com/oCcWMX9g39— Deadspin (@Deadspin) June 5, 2018

    At the NCAA Football championship game he proved he doesn’t know the words to the National Anthem, either.

    He’s a disgrace to this country and the office he holds.

  2. Fewer than 10 of the Eagles players and staff were willing to come to the WH to stand by a tantrum throwing, egotistical putz who called players sons of bitches for exercising their First Amendment right to protest police brutality and unequal justice in this country.

    The Cavaliers and Warriors, whoever wins, probably won’t show up either.

    Good for them.

    Kneeing has nothing to do with disrespecting the flag, the troops or the dead as the right twisted it into.

    “Turns out it was former Seahawks player and Green Beret Nate Boyer who talked Kap into making the change. Boyer wrote an open letter to Kaepernick earlier this season, and it caused the two to meet up and discuss America and honoring the anthem.”

    • Doug – Sorry. For some reason this message went to the spam folder. -JmB
