Anti-President Trump celebrities have become a toxic infestation in America.
At this point,the Hollywood elites are merely grasping at straws to criticize our president.
And one anti-Trump comedian just accused him of the most asinine thing ever.
Comedian Bill Cosby was just convicted on three counts of sexual assault and will be sentenced to as much as 30 years in prison very soon.
But that didn’t stop Chelsea Handler from chiming in and actually accusing President Trump of preemptively planning to pardon the disgraced comedian.
Here was her tweet.
I wonder how long it’s going to take Trump to announce he’s going to pardon Bill Cosby.

Handler fails to realize that the president can only pardon federal crimes, detailed in Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution, which states “shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment.”
Cosby’s felony convictions don’t fall within the parameters of Trump’s power—they’re state crimes.
But, of course, Handler wouldn’t know that would she?
Thankfully, she was eaten alive for her lack of knowledge on the subject, and for the clearly unhealthy obsession she has for President Trump.
Here were some responses to her tweet.
Not a federal crime.

Folks that believe state and federal crimes should be the same will need to find a DeLorean with a flux capacitor. Because the only way to make them the same is to go back to 1786 Philadelphia and change the Constitution before it’s published and ratified. pic.twitter.com/ouuUeiER5G

Not necessary. Not funny. You insult the victims by shifting the focus for your own gratification. Really overdone @chelseahandler

Chelsea Handler’s career was ruined by self-infliction because of dumbfounding comments like this. No wonder Netflix canceled her show.
