Christopher Cantwell (nazi who helped organize and attack people during the Charlottesville rally) turned himself in on Wednesday afternoon. A day after Trump publicly announced he was going to pardon Arpaio.

Arpaio, who is a convicted criminal. But with Trump spin was “just doing his job.” And to the uninformed, no. He was not doing his job. He was told by law to stop racially profiling, but he did it anyway.

Trump sent a clear message that he will protect white supremacists through pardons.
