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!

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
