JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): So you've had Bill Clinton, who famously pardoned Marc Rich, the biggest tax cheat in U.S. history. You have President Obama, who commuted the sentence of Bradley Manning, huge traitor. And commuted sentences of a lot of crack dealers at the end of his administration.

[...]

WATTERS: So now you have Arpaio, who is 85 years old. He's a very loyal friend to the president. It was a misdemeanor charge. Everyone's pulling their hair out in Washington about Sheriff Joe being pardoned. Big picture this for us. Is this big of a deal?
