This is the question that reportedly stumped Ted Cruz this morning:
The President says he can pardon himself, would you agree with that?
Obviously, the Founding Fathers– having just risked their fates and fortunes in the War of Independence– never intended to confer upon the Chief Executive the powers of a king.
If a president had the monarchical power to self-pardon, he could commit any or all of the following crimes– then simply pardon himself after the fact:
- Order genocide, then pardon himself.
- Rape women on live TV, then pardon himself.
- Arrest Congress and declare himself Emperor, then pardon himself.
Ted Cruz is well-aware of this, but cannot risk alienating Trump’s Nazi base w/ the midterms coming up in November.
But that is neither here nor there.
The chick reporter lady that asked Cruz that question has a perfect face– whatever flaws there are, they are imperceptible to the human eye:
But the weird thing is, she’s actually significantly less attractive when she smiles (though still super hot)…
