John Ziegler nails it again. https://www.mediaite.com/online/why...-our-president/amp/?__twitter_impression=true Trump views humanity through the prism that there are two basic groups of people: the rich and/or famous, and everyone else. The first group matters greatly to him, the second means almost nothing. So, when evaluating the merits of a particular pardon, the facts/logic/justice have almost nothing to do with how much weight he gives to the case. It is the wattage of Stallone and Kardashian’s celebrity which is far more significant. We are now living in a world where it is far more important to have a celebrity take up your cause than for your cause to be just, and Trump is perfectly fine with that. In addition to seeing the world as split between people who are important (the rich and the famous) and those who are not, he also views humanity as divided between those who are pro-Trump and those are not. In his mind, those in the former group are obviously inherently good people and therefore deserving of special treatment.
