After promising to appoint a Special Prosecutor to jail opponent Hillary Clinton—and goading supporters into chanting, "Lock her up!" at his rallies, President-elect Donald Trump has decided he won't bother going after Clinton after all.

Though our future Con Man-in-Chief once basked in the possibility of throwing Crooked Hillary in the clink where she belongs, because of something about emails, Trump's former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told Morning Joe today that Trump will graciously allow Clinton to walk free. "Look, I think, he’s thinking of many different things as he prepares to become the president of the United States, and things that sound like the campaign are not among them,” Conway said.

Indeed, our Benevolent Leader may even help Clinton become a True Comrade. “I think Hillary Clinton still has to face the fact that a majority of Americans don’t find her to be honest or trustworthy, but if Donald Trump can help her heal, then perhaps that’s a good thing," Conway said. All hail the healing power of Trump!

So, it behooves all of us to praise Trump for bestowing forgiveness upon Clinton, even if merely threatening to jail one's political opponent is a horrifying breach of democracy. It's also not within Trump's jurisdiction—it's up to the Department of Justice and FBI to decide whether or not to pursue legal action against Clinton, and in case you've been napping for the last four months, they've already concluded she did nothing illegal (twice!)

Still, in Trump's America, our justice departments are his personal playthings, as are the media, diplomatic relations, and taxpayer dollars. The FBI can choose to ignore Trump's orders, like if he decided to order Director James Comey to reopen the investigation. But Trump can fire a Director if he finds just cause, and something tells me President Babyhands will manage to make that cause a little less just.

Anyway, sorry Trump voters—I know you were super excited to see Clinton carted off to prison! I suppose you'll just have to amuse yourselves with the mere fall of our Republic instead.
