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.
Hey "Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the Country"... Pardon THIS: https://t.co/gBYSWqKObj— Mark Hamill (@Mark Hamill)1582133664.0
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.

@HamillHimself Lmao....it wasn't that bad......well it was kinda bad.— Lolo🆘🌊🚬🍷 (@Lolo🆘🌊🚬🍷)1582137172.0
Sadly, most people agreed the special was a crime, though not one worthy of a pardon.
@HamillHimself That's it, that's the Tweet 😆 https://t.co/Z3CdwHaV9p— Claudia _Rose🌹 (@Claudia _Rose🌹)1582144014.0

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!

@HamillHimself @TheNelsonMike Thanks for going out of your way to make us laugh, Mark. Heaven knows we need you and… https://t.co/xjzhMEmrXZ— Jared Petty (@Jared Petty)1582163390.0
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.
@HamillHimself I bet he'll grant it a pardon in exchange for dirt on the Bidens.— OGKDubs (@OGKDubs)1582220712.0
@HamillHimself Holiday Special?? Crazy Liberals! Call it a Christmas Special for goodness sake! [/sarcasm font]— Harry (@Harry)1582133750.0
Unfortunately for Hamill, many people online felt that even the President didn't have the power to let that special off the hook.
That special might be unpardonable. https://t.co/r7aWmTq8qI— HuffPost (@HuffPost)1582249258.0
@HuffPost The pardon for that Star Wars debacle would require an Act of Congress. A presidential pardon wouldn't be enough.— IslandReader1 (@IslandReader1)1582249901.0
Pardoning that stinker is beyond any human's ability. https://t.co/y8LZBVogm5— Greg Barteluk (@Greg Barteluk)1582239065.0
There were a few who tried to stand up for the cult-classic...

Perhaps the true answer is actually to produce a sequel?
@HamillHimself But we already got the poster for 'Star Wars Holiday Special: Episode II' 🧐 https://t.co/3dTtDYRJNv— Fandom (@Fandom)1582235108.0
You've got it all wrong @HamillHimself. Don't pardon it, make a self aware Holiday Special 2.0!!!! https://t.co/Ea5XQw3cxb— Stephen Kent (@Stephen Kent)1582297149.0
President Trump, if you actually believe in democracy, pardon this holiday special!
