President Trump, who's been on a spree of pardons and brash acts after being acquitted by the Republican-controlled Senate, recently described himself as the "chief law enforcement officer of the country" while defending rumors he plans to pardon confidant Roger Stone.


Actor Mark Hamill, who frequently criticizes the President online, poked fun at Trump's unstable, borderline authoritarian behavior, by asking him for an even bigger pardon.

The Star Wars Holiday Special, produced quickly on the coattails of the first film's success, is famously bad and features some of the worst acting of the entire Star Wars saga.


Sadly, most people agreed the special was a crime, though not one worthy of a pardon.


Of course, if Roger Stone, who was recently sentenced to 40 months in prison after Trump asked the Department of Justice to go easy on his old friend, deserves special treatment, perhaps the special does as well!


Perhaps the special would have a better chance of getting pardoned if it donated a bunch of money to the Trump campaign—a common theme that connects each of Trump's recent acts of clemency.


Unfortunately for Hamill, many people online felt that even the President didn't have the power to let that special off the hook.



There were a few who tried to stand up for the cult-classic...

...but not many.

Perhaps the true answer is actually to produce a sequel?


President Trump, if you actually believe in democracy, pardon this holiday special!

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
