Jesse Jackson really stuck his foot in his mouth during a big rally at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan today. Thousands listened as Jackson demanded that Obama pardon Hillary Clinton…Haha!!! Wait! We thought Hillary hadn’t committed a crime! Jesse Jackson needs to fill us in on the crimes he thinks Clinton has committed.
Speaking at President Gerald Ford’s alma mater, The Rev. Jesse Jackson called for President Obama to issue a blanket pardon to Hillary Clinton before he leaves office, just like Ford did for Richard Nixon.
Stopping short of saying Clinton did anything wrong, Jackson told a large crowd of University of Michigan students, faculty and administrators gathered at daylong celebration of his career that Obama should short-circuit President-elect Donald Trump’s promised attempt to prosecute Hillary Clinton for use of a private e-mail server.
“It would be a monumental moral mistake to pursue the indictment of Hillary Clinton,” Jackson said. He said issuing the pardon could help heal the nation, like Ford’s pardon of Nixon did.
“President Ford said we don’t need him for trophy. We need to move on. President Nixon wasn’t convicted of a crime. He didn’t apply for a pardon. (Ford) did it because he thought it would be best for the country.
“Hillary Clinton has not been tried, but there are those who want to drag her for the next three years. It will not stop until they find a reason to put her in jail. That would be a travesty.”
This is hysterical! The left just keeps shooting themselves in the foot and we’re loving it!
