Today in things we shouldn’t have to say, let’s examine why it’s perfectly fine for us to be mad about fictional works. I’ve seen a few responses on Twitter complaining about people who are mad about Game of Thrones and I’m applying the sentiment to Avengers: Endgame as well because, news flash, we’re allowed to be angry.

Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling, a national security for CNN, appeared on the network Monday to lambaste President Donald Trump over reports he’s preparing to pardon several US military members accused of war crimes. Hertling appeared on CNN after writing an op-ed noting that while Trump’s pardons would be legal, “they are also immoral and anathema to military discipline, unit cohesion, and our forces’ professionalism.” On air, Hertling called the potential pardons “extremely” immoral.

Hertling continued that Trump, as the commander in chief of the armed forces, is … [Read more...] about CNN’s Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling Says Trump Pardons ‘Immoral’
