If Ali Was Still Alive He Would Say WFT?

United States President Donald Trump is thinking "very seriously" about pardoning former heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali, despite the fact his conviction was already overturned by the Supreme Court in 1971.

"I'm thinking about somebody that you all know very well. And he went through a lot. And he wasn't very popular then," Trump said. "He certainly, his memory is very popular now."

Ron Tweel, Ali's lawyer, pointed out that Ali has no criminal record.

"We appreciate President Trump's sentiment, but a pardon is unnecessary," he said.
The White House did not immediately respond to questions about why the president feels one is needed.

"President Trump has spent much of his first 18 months in office degrading NFL players who protest police brutality and racial injustice," said Jeff Robinson, the group's deputy legal director.

Today, he has tried once again to change the narrative about the work of those and other activists, betraying a fundamental misunderstanding of the cause behind these protests and using racist dog whistles to do it."

Glad Trump can't "use" Ali.

But he tried and those enables around him let him do that. He's a maniac and I grow tired of his bullshit. If there really was a secret world order he would be dead already or someone is seriously dropping the ball.
