CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin spoke about the recent presidential pardon that President Trump has been handing out.
Toobin says it is a “great theater.”
“There wasn’t this great theater, there weren’t a lot of celebrities involved, there were no celebrities, but that is how you impact a lot of lives,” Toobin stated about Barack Obama when he pardoned non-violent drug offenders.
“This is yet another example — by fighting with the NFL players, by fighting with the UCLA basketball players, by his comments in Charlottesville, President Trump gets to fight with black people, which he thinks is a great advantage politically. And, you know, this is not an olive branch. This is more opportunity to define himself.”
