While talking to my lawyer daughter, I asked if she thought Trump realized that he cannot pardon anyone for state crimes, only federal crimes. That if, for example, he pardoned one of his merry gang of alligators for federal tax evasion, there’d immediately be a trial for evasion of their state taxes, and into the pokey they would go. (Governors issue pardons for violation of state laws.)
Then I said, “Oh, hell, he doesn’t even know staring at the sun will damage your eyes, how can he know that?”
She about died laughing.
