President Trump's posthumous pardon of Susan B. Anthony did not receive the warmest welcome from Democrats and members of the media.
H/T: Fox News
On Tuesday, the president marked the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave the women the right to vote, by granting a pardon of the famed suffragette, who was arrested in 1872 for violating laws that had permitted only men to vote in the presidential election and was later convicted for voting illegally and sentenced to pay a fine of $100 and court costs.
Susan B. Anthony was pardoned and cancelled on the same day. https://t.co/QWTeWUQz0g— Cam Edwards (@CamEdwards) August 18, 2020
They’re gonna do it. They’re really gonna cancel Susan B Anthony. https://t.co/qLzJr7FJAn— Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) August 18, 2020
Here’s why Susan B. Anthony doesn’t deserve your ‘I Voted’ stickers pic.twitter.com/EiP0WUPvN7— NowThis (@nowthisnews) August 18, 2020
There’s literally nothing Trump can say or do that doesn’t get this response from the left. They’d be smarter to just ignore Trump’s pardon of Susan B. Anthony but instead they smear her because they think it’s a sick own. https://t.co/HxRIi4IHHk— Eddie Zipperer (@EddieZipperer) August 18, 2020

Pathetic. Trump pardons a woman who has been dead for over 100 years to show his commitment to women.— Jackie Speier (@RepSpeier) August 18, 2020
Suburban women aren’t dumb. We are all insulted. https://t.co/8NtWxYOy3p
Susan B Anthony’s WHOLE point was to get arrested. She wanted that conviction. https://t.co/a8E16ePogg— Jennifer Palmieri (@jmpalmieri) August 18, 2020
Susan B. Anthony was proud to be arrested for voting. She does not require a "pardon," anymore than Gallileo needed a "pardon" from the Catholic Church. https://t.co/IlCaM0oJSf— FFRF (@FFRF) August 18, 2020
