Trump Base on Susan B. Anthony Pardon: What About Assange, Snowden or Flynn?


President Trump is facing criticism from his own base after pardoning long-dead Susan B. Anthony instead of pardoning Julian Assange, Edward Snowden or his former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Many of the president supporters said that while the Anthony pardon was still noble, he had built up the pardon to sound like he was giving it to someone alive who’s still fighting in the geopolitical arena.

“How about pardoning someone who is still alive?” said one commentator on an RT article announcing the news.

Another commentator called it “anti-climatic.”

“He teases he’s going to pardon someone big, then chooses the safest pardon in American history,” he quipped.
