Donald Trump Just Retweeted Another Anti-Obama Tweet, What Is Wrong With This Man?

Donald Trump just retweeted a post from a conservative journalist criticizing President Obama, incorrectly, of pardoning Chelsea Manning. Obama in January commuted Manning’s 35-year prison sentence in January but did not grant a pardon.

The tweet was posted by Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich, who was responding to a tweet from former Obama national security adviser Ben Rhodes that was critical of Trump’s pardon Friday of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Rhodes wrote Friday that “Obama used his pardon and commutation power to give a second chance to people who deserved empathy, not racists who showed none.”

“Your boss pardoned a traitor who gave U.S. enemies state secrets, he also pardoned a terrorist who killed Americans. Spare us the lecture,” Pavlich responded in a Sunday tweet that was retweeted Monday morning by Trump.

Pavlich was referencing Obama’s commutations of the sentences for Manning and Oscar Lopez Rivera.

Manning leaked classified information to WikiLeaks, and Rivera was a member of the Puerto Rican nationalist group Armed Forces of National Liberation that was responsible for many bombing deaths in the U.S.

Obama did not pardon either but did commute their sentences. Manning served seven years and Rivera served 35 before being released.

Twitter was quick to respond:
