    But I thought Trump is a racist? Why would he pardon a black woman he doesn't care about?o_O

    Here are some must-know facts about Alice Marie Johnson:

    • On October 31, 1996, Alice Marie Johnson, who was then 41, was sentenced to life in prison without parole for a first-time non-violent drug offense. In 1997, a Memphis paper reported she led a “multimillion-dollar drug ring that dealt in tons of cocaine from 1991-94.” However, who knows how accurate “multimillion-dollar drug ring” is — this was the era of Clinton’s crime reform bill, which was locking up Black men and women for drug crimes and giving them long, mandatory prison sentences.
    • After Alice and her husband divorced in 1989, she lost her job at Fedex, which she’d had for seven years, and
      her youngest son was killed in a motorcycle accident, she told CNN.com, “I made some very poor decisions out of desperation. I want this part to be clear: I acknowledge that I have done wrong. I made the biggest mistake of my life to make ends meet and got involved with people selling drugs.”
    • Alice Marie Johnson describes her crimes as “I became what is called a telephone mule, passing messages between the distributors and sellers. I participated in a drug conspiracy, and I was wrong.”
    • Her daughter started a petition to ask for President Barack Obama to grant Alice Marie Johnson clemency, but she was denied.
    • Her daughter said since her mother has been in prison “she has been a model prisoner who mentors women and has become an ordained minister. She has also written, directed, and produced several plays and writings for conferences outside of prison walls, choreographed dance teams, and completed many classes and certifications. Her supporters include Congressman Steve Cohen (D) Tennessee, Congressman Bennie Thompson (D) Mississippi, and Congressman Marc Veasey (D) Ft. Worth, Texas.”

    Because the GOP is facing a bad midterm elections prognosis and needs blacks voting for him.

    This is the equivalent of those *******s who record themselves giving money to homeless people and then upload the videos to Youtube.

    How often had Trump shown any concern for social injustice before getting into politics?

    How people fall for this is hard to understand.

    By the way, I think the title of this thread sums up how low American politics has sunk.

    She was locked up for life due to the Clinton Crime Bill. Also, as noted Obama didn't want to help.

    And? Are you advocating for an amnesty?

    No, my point is the CCB is racist towards blacks. If she gets Trump to reform the crime bill it will be a very positive thing.

    Probably not, but it's a start in the right direction.

    If the law was unfair, repeal it + amnesty for all those affected. Otherwise why only her? Until then, refer to post #2

    The cynical view? Kim K is trying win some tickets back to the barbecue since her other half has taken to settling in the sunken place. Translation... It's hopefully a few good points with the black community since she ( Kim involved herself with a beef between Kanye and Drake's producer, and got laughed out of the feed ) & Kanye have been taking nothing but 'L's with a large part of the community.

    Remember 45 also pardoned Jack Johnson hoping that would score himself some points, and the community wasn't buying it.

    The question is will this be for shared time in the press, or really considered?

    Please stop. My brain isn’t covered by AppleCare.


    Edit to add: I know, I know... “but, but, but...”

    Another woman in the White House that nobody would know about if she hadn’t become famous first because of naked photos.

    Hmmm.... where is that cigar box? Clinton said he left them in here somewhere... better fire off a tweet about Obama, cause I can’t find the cigars. Wait... here’s an IOU from Bush... oh.. he smoked them??? Who smokes Cigars in the White House??? Don’t they know that they’re for presidential business with female visitors???

    More like full blown amateur porn. Pretty sure Trump's comfort level was at a 100.

    Maybe Kris the Mommager can adopt Donald into the Kardashian Klan. He'd fit right in.

    ...and BELIEVE ME…. Donald has no problems with Klan affiliations.
