Trump’s criminal justice reform efforts will provide the illusion to undecided voters that the regime cares for rank and file prisoners as much as those pardoned celebrity criminals.
Willie Horton doesn’t truly foreshadow this generation’s Rod Blago or Michael Milken, because for the beneficent Trump, his bestowing criminal justice reform is like parting gifts on a game show.
Similarly, the reality-show attempt to intimidate the UK parents of a boy killed by a CIA officer is the M.O. of the Trump regime.
So much Caesar-rendering.
