President Donald Trump pardoned Joe Arpaio on Friday.You might remember the story of crazy JoeThe Arizona Sheriff that was convicted of criminal contempt of court related to his tactics of racial profiling Hispanics in Arizona.
This high-profile sheriff was on stage with an for Trump during his campaign last year prior to his conviction.
What makes this case particularly odd is that Arpaio hadn’t been sentenced yet and was only expected to serve six months or less in jail leading the left to scream that this is a “purely political” move by Trump to stir his base.
CNN is reporting that unlike presidents in the past Trump did not consult with the Justice Department prior to his pardon and many think this was a test of his power he might be planning to use later to pardon his own children or close associates.
It’s fair to say that civil rights groups heads are spinning this morning with pea soup spitting out of their ears at this racially charged sheriff being pardoned in the aftermath of the Charlottesville situation.
I want to know what you think. Do you think Trump is still on the right track? Have you had enough of him yet? Is he crazy or he smart like a fox?
