Haley would pardon traitors? Wow!

Nikki Haley had me for a little while … then she lost me with a bizarre proclamation.

She said this past weekend that if she’s elected president should pardon the guy she’s trying to beat for the GOP nomination if he’s convicted of federal crimes, including one that alleges he tried to overthrow the federal government in the wake of the 2020 presidential election.

Wow, man! That is some leap for a candidate who doesn’t appear to stand a chance of being nominated by the Republican Party let alone being elected by all Americans this fall.

Ponder for a moment what the former South Carolina governor and former U.N. ambassador is promising. She would issue a full presidential pardon to an individual who could be convicted of siccing the traitorous mob on the Capitol on Jan. 6; the mob threatened to “hang Mike Pence!” if the VP went through with his constitutional task of certifying the results of the vote that elected Joe Biden president.

All of this is pure speculation, of course. Haley is trailing the criminal defendant running for POTUS in every poll being conducted; the margins are astronomical.

I actually pondered whether I would vote for her were she to somehow be nominated this summer. That pondering moment has now officially passed, given the absurd pledge she made to pardon the idiot she wants to defeat for the GOP nomination.

It was nice knowin’ ya, Nikki Haley.
