Subject: RE: BS: Trump Actions and Effects
Giving a pardon to Steve Bannon seems a tactical error to me. His crime was essentially stealing the money Trump supporters sent in to pay for The Wall. That means it directly affects Trump supporters and says to them that "Stealing from you is no big deal." Most other pardons are more remote from individual voters but that one can be taken as a personal insult to Trump supporters. Thar's a risky game.
