Obama Just Commuted Chelsea Manning’s Sentence And Wingnuts Are Losing Their MINDS (TWEETS)

It’s finally happened. After years of protests, letters, lawsuits, prayers, and well wishings, President Obama has done as one of his final acts as president something that will simultaneously please liberals and send the conservative world into a chaos from which they may never recover. On Tuesday, news broke that Obama commuted Chelsea Manning’s sentence, finally freeing her in five months’ time.

Manning was convicted under the Espionage Act in July 2013 for leaking classified documents related to the Iraq war to Wikileaks. This, of course, puts Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in a precarious situation since his organization promised he would turn himself in if Obama did the thing he just did:

Though many are celebrating Obama’s move, there’s one group of people that is pissed off. If you’re thinking it’s Trump’s people, you’re right. The Stupid Party.

While Trump fans and other idiots demand to know why Obama will not pardon Snowden, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest has some answers for them:

Chelsea Manning is somebody who went through the military criminal justice process, was exposed to due process, was found guilty, was sentenced for her crimes, and she acknowledged wrongdoing. Mr. Snowden fled into the arms of an adversary, and has sought refuge in a country that most recently made a concerted effort to undermine confidence in our democracy.

It is unclear if Assange will keep his word and surrender to the United States, but time is up. Even if he does, he will encounter the Trump administration, and the next President is likely to treat him quite well after all the help Assange his friend Putin gave him with the election.
