Trump announces surprise ‘full pardon’ for Dinesh D’Souza, collective full-throttled freak out ensues

President Trump unexpectedly announced he will be offering a full pardon to conservative author Dinesh D’Souza.

“Will be giving a Full Pardon to Dinesh Trump’s tweet came as he left Joint Base Andrews en route to events in Texas. today,” Trump said on Twitter on Thursday. “He was treated very unfairly by our government!”

The author, speaker, and filmmaker pleaded guilty to making an illegal campaign contribution to New York Republican Senate candidate Wendy Long in 2012. D’Souza was convicted in 2014 and sentenced to five years of probation.

The 57-year-old’s sentence included eight months living under supervision in a “community confinement center” and a $30,000 fine, according to The Washington Post.

D’Souza claimed last year that he was targeted for “political” reasons by the administration of former President Obama after the release of his film “2016: Obama’s America.”

Trump tweeted his remarks as he left Joint Base Andrews on his way to Texas where he is set to meet with families of the victims of the Sante Fe high school shooting earlier this month.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz applauded the decision by Trump to pardon D’Souza.

“This is Justice” the Texas Republican said.

As to be expected, liberals and media elites are having a collective tantrum:

What?

Of course, there’s two sides to this argument, and Ted Cruz wasn’t the only one applauding Trump’s move:

It’s going to be a long day for libs.
