Pardon Trump? Yang says he might

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/02/02/pardon-trump-andrew-yang-2020-110331

100% disqualifying. We cannot move past Trump's scandals and crimes.

1. That would make him fall off the ballot for me.

 

That is totally unacceptable, period. We won't be fooled again. The beast must be killed like a cancer must be destroyed... and that ain't happening with pardons.

4. Absolutely not

 

I remember Ford pardoning Nixon and it was hardly unifying. Trump is much worse than Nixon ever was, he should be forgiven as he forgives others.

5. Yang said the same today on This Week

 

When asked by Stephanopolis where his supporters might go in districts where he was non-viable, Yang hemmed and hawed, then said many of his supporters like Bernie and others like Trump (and would go home).

8. He knows how much support he gets from Trump voters

 

He would be an idiot to get sucked into this trap.

And it's cute how many people here are acting like he said he would pardon Trump, when that's not what he said. Yep, adorbs.

9. He said he would look at all facts.

 

It was a carefully crafted response. I'm fine with it. Unless we want to become just like Trump, but with different political issues, this should always be the correct answer.

If the Republicans stuck to facts and actually had the trial, the evidence would have spoken for itself. Yang's not my first choice in this race, but that he's willing to look at all facts isn't a negative in my book.

11. Too bad Gerald Ford isn't still around to explain

 

how well pardoning a crooked ex-president worked out for him.

13. Well Mr Yang,

 

your Democratic Presidential Bid just went South. Boy did he misjudge the American voters. 70% + wanted Witness's.

16. We should make every candidate respond

 

If elected, would they pardon trumps crimes, and any that refuse to answer, or claim they would should not be considered for your vote, period. That's why its gotten to this point, nothing was done to Reagon or Bush, and now with trump, so next time will be a lot worse.
