Jesse Watters puts Arpaio pardon in perspective, Obama commuted sentences of ‘crack dealers’

The way the media, Democrats and RINOs have responded to President Donald Trump’s pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio you would think he was the first president to pardon someone.

On Friday, Fox News host Jesse Watters put the former Maricopa County, Arizona sheriff’s pardon in perspective when he spoke with Fox News’ chief national correspondent Ed Henry.

“You’ve had Bill Clinton, who famously pardoned Marc Rich, the biggest tax cheat in U.S. history,” Watters noted. “You have President Obama who commuted the sentence of Bradley Manning, huge traitor. And you know, commuted sentences of a lot of crack dealers at the end of his administration.”

“Is there a question?” Henry quipped.

“I’m leading up to it. People want to hear what I have to say,” Watters jabbed back.

“Now you have Arpaio whose 85-years-old. He’s a very loyal friend of the president. It’s a misdemeanor charge,” Watters said. “Everyone’s pulling their hair out in Washington about Sheriff Joe being pardoned. Big picture this for us. Is this, this big of a deal?”

Henry said it was not a big deal and that people in Washington are going to be “shocked” by it but President Trump’s base is going to “love it.”

He did warn that, because the president didn’t have the Justice Department sign off on it and follow the usual procedures, as former President Bill Clinton did not when he pardoned Rich, that would raise “red flags.”

But the president does have ultimate pardoning power and there is nothing anyone can do to change the pardon.
