Donald Trump, as expected, pardoned a sheriff who is a known racist and used illegal tactics in-order to profile Hispanics and abuse and/or arrest them.

  1. The announcement was made last night, just before the president took to Twitter to announce the pardon of former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio. Just about everyone who has any sense of decency called Trump out for doing what was so obviously the wrong thing. Snoop Dogg had one of the best responses and decided to post a video of his reaction.

    “This n***a is crazy,” he said to the camera. “This n***a talking bout letting off a straight racist out of jail. I tell you cuz, America, if you don’t see this s**t… I don’t get it man. All my n***as – Chicago, Detroit, New York, L.A., Atlanta, D.C., and all in-between, New Orleans, Houston – you know what it is. It’s time for us to get together.”

    Other people called out 45 as well. John McCain, who’s a senator from the state, tweeted, “@POTUS's pardon of Joe Arpaio, who illegally profiled Latinos, undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law.” Rep. Maxine Waters also condemned him and said this is nothing new.

    “I'm not surprised Trump pardoned racial profiler Arpaio,” she tweeted. “White Nationalists, KKK, & Duke celebrated Trump's election b/c he is one of them!”
