Today has been a day of pardons and commutations by President Trump. The left is going bananas over this move by President Trump. Football legend Jerry Rice bravely spoke out after a meeting at the White House today to show his support for what President Trump did to forgive the former owner of the SF 49ers. Rice is being skewered by the left for showing support for the president.
“I TAKE MY HAT OFF TO DONALD TRUMP FOR WHAT HE DID.”
One of the high-profile pardons happened to be a former owner of the San Francisco 49ers Eddie DeBartolo Jr. He pleaded guilty to a felony in 1998 for not reporting an extortion scheme by the governor of Louisiana.
