Tyranny: Trump condemns, condones it on same day

Re: TNT Nation/World page, 8/26.

This page had two interesting stories side by side: one about President Trump pardoning former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, the other about U.S. economic sanctions against Venezuela.

Did anyone else detect the irony in the first sentence of the Venezuela article? It said the U.S. under the Trump administration won’t help underwrite “tyranny.”

And yet on the same day Trump pardoned Arpaio, who assuredly tyrannized the Latinos in his state.

I just shake my head at the inconsistencies of this administration.
