(TNS) During his daily coronavirus briefing on Sunday, President Donald Trump was asked by a reporter if he was considering pardoning friend Roger Stone and his one-time 2016 campaign manager Paul Manafort, because ‘muh coronavirus.’
In answering the question, the president first hinted that pardons may, in fact, be planned. But then he launched into a classic broadside against the Deep State figures whose names we all know by now for their perpetuation of “Spygate” and their attempt to overthrow him.
Reporter: Mr. President, have you thought any more about pardoning Paul Manafort or Roger Stone so they’re not exposed to the coronavirus in jail?
Trump: Well, I just tell you this. Roger Stone was treated very unfairly. Paul Manafort, the black book turned out to be a fraud. We learned that out during the various last number of weeks or months. They had a black book that came out of Ukraine, turned out to be a fraud. Turned out to be a fraud. They convicted a man, turned out to be a fraud.
General Flynn was a highly respected person and it turned out to be a scam on him. The FBI said he didn’t lie and Mueller’s people wanted him to go to jail. Okay? So what am I going to do? You’ll find out what I’m going to do. I’m not going to say what I’m going to do, but I will tell you the whole thing turned out to be a scam, and it turned out to be a disgrace to our country, and it was a take down of a duly elected President.
These people suffered greatly. General Flynn, I mean, what they did to him, and even the FBI said, and they had some, and nobody’s a bigger fan of the FBI than me at the level of the people that really matter. But the top of the FBI was scum, and what they did to General Flynn, and you know it and everybody knows it, was a disgrace.
He was in the service for over 30 years. He ends up being a general and respected. Respected. And almost his first day in office, they come in with papers. They want to investigate him. Never happened before, and now the tables are turned. Investigate the investigators, I guess. These were crooked people. These are bad people. These are very dangerous people. You know what they are though? They’re scum. They’re human scum.

Relish this, conservatives.
We may never, ever see another Republican president with this much chutzpah and willingness to go toe-to-toe with his political opponents again in our lifetimes.
