Trump Pardons LA Rap Sensation Lil Wayne!


The shrewdest political maneuver of the 2020 election cycle may have been made by Lil Wayne.

On Oct. 29, the New Orleans-born rapper tweeted a picture of himself with President Donald Trump that was widely seen as an endorsement.

The president's reelection bid was unsuccessful, but the tweet apparently paid big dividends for Wayne anyway: late Tuesday night, he received one of several dozen presidential pardons issued by Trump in the final hours of his presidency.

"President Trump granted a full pardon to Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., also known as 'Lil Wayne.' Mr. Carter pled guilty to possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon, owing to a conviction over 10 years ago. Brett Berish of Sovereign Brands, who supports a pardon for Mr. Carter, describes him as 'trustworthy, kind-hearted and generous.' Mr. Carter has exhibited this generosity through commitment to a variety of charities, including donations to research hospitals and a host of foodbanks.
"Deion Sanders, who also wrote in support of this pardon, calls Mr. Wayne 'a provider for his family, a friend to many, a man of faith, a natural giver to the less fortunate, a waymaker, [and] a game changer.'"
