It was one of the biggest scams hoisted upon the American people to-date: President Gerald Ford made his inaugural speech, explaining his pardon of crook Richard Nixon:

“Our long national nightmare is over…”

And sure, Americans were ready for some good news, so that could be part of the explaination as to why they would accept this sentiment from Ford. But the reality was that Ford was willing to pardon a crook, a very bad person – Nixon – just so he could get the top prize, the Presidency of the United States.

Let’s hope Americans have wised up a little since then, because we all know Mike Pence will have no problem pardoning Donald Trump once he has to resign, and Trump is a much bigger crook than Nixon ever was.
