    Trump makes Pence watch him sign pardons for several hours .. To see how it is done



    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—President Donald J. Trump made Vice-President Mike Pence watch him issue pardons for several hours to see how it is done, a White House source confirmed.

    According to the source, Trump pardoned a number of disgraced political figures and former reality-show cronies for the sole purpose of training Pence in the art of issuing pardons.

    After signing pardon after pardon while Pence looked on intently, Trump commanded the Vice-President to sign a “practice pardon” to prove that he “wouldn’t mess anything up,” the source said.

    Before trying his hand at issuing a pardon, Pence heaped praise on Trump for the pardoning demonstration he had just given.

    “Mr. President, as in everything you do, your mastery of pardoning has been a wonder to behold,” he said. “I pray to God that, if I am ever called upon to issue a pardon, I do it with one-tenth of the skill and grace you have just displayed.”

    “Stop sucking up and sign it,” Trump reportedly snapped.

    This seems like it is satire, but it is possible that it is just another example of Poe's Law.....

    . Well it was Andy Borowitz, but you never know with the clown show in the Whitehouse.

    It is interesting what people pick up on. Pence has been at Trump's side with that stupid looking half-grin on his face.

    It goes

    Cheney
    Agnew
    Pence

    Pence is not a real human being. There's a cyborg or something in there pretty sure under the alter boy robe

    I guess Trump has decided he wont need the Albino Assassin after all, now he has determined he can do his own pardon. This shit just cannot be made up....

    Yep - Funny that Trump thinks he can pardon himself. There is NO WAY per 90% of the better legal minds.

    Trump's such a goon, and the turds around him are so clownish, that the line between Borowitz satire and reality is down to a razor edge.
