Joe Arpaio? Obama commuted the sentences of a terrorist and a leaker of classified files

So, much is being said in the media about President Trump's pardon of Joe Arpaio. The news media and certain political leaders, seem to have a very short memory.

The photo on the left shows Obama after he paid for the ransom of an Army deserter. Where was the news media?

Remember Bradley Manning? He had a sex change operation paid for by taxpayers. He changed his name to Chelsea Manning. This fool was an Army intelligence analyst. And he gave classified material to wikileaks. He was convicted of various espionage charges, and sentenced to 35 years in prison.

Along comes President Obama, and commutes his, er....her sentence and she is released.

Nobody on the left cared much about that, did they?

Ever hear of Oscar Lopez Rivera? He was a convicted terrorist from Peurto Rico. His organization did over 130 bombings. He was released from his 55 year sentence. Yes, a convicted terrorist.

Obama also released hundreds of Gitmo prisoners. Half of the ones he released have returned to their terrorist ways.

Where was the news media when President Obama was disrespecting military members? Where was the news media when Obama was setting free terrorists and secret leakers?

Obama set records for monthly pardons. He pardoned more people than anyone since Harry Truman.

Literally hundreds of convicted felons have been released and pardoned by Obama.

Nobody seems to care.

And yet, Donald Trump pardons one person and the news media goes ape.

Arpaio was convicted of a  misdemeanor. Yes, a misdemeanor.
