(CNN)President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Tuesday pardoning Eddie DeBartolo Jr., White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley announced at the White House.
DeBartolo is the former owner of the NFL team, the San Francisco 49ers. During DeBartolo's time as owner, the team won five Super Bowl titles.DeBartolo pleaded guilty in 1998 to failing to report a felony in a bribery case, which led to former Louisiana Gov. Edwin W. Edwards getting sent to federal prison.DeBartolo did not serve jail time, but he agreed to pay up to $1 million in fines. He also relinquished ownership of the 49ers to his sister, Denise York.
    Former 49ers wide receiver Jerry Rice told press at the White House Tuesday morning that Trump and a group advocating for DeBartolo discussed what the former 49ers owner had done on and off the field."I think with Eddie and what he has accomplished, what he has done on the football field, off the football field a lot of charity work so we talked about that," Rice said. "We talked about just being great. You know, trying to be the greatest of all time. And you know, I take my hat off for Donald Trump and what he did."
      In 2016, DeBartolo was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

      I’m glad Trump is taking care of the little guy. Those miners should really feel good now. They’re just like you!

      P.S. Can you even begin to imagine if Obama pardoned Blagoveich?  Trump supporters would’ve demanded the return of slavery. But Trump and Democrats really hate each other, right?  Keep telling yourself that.

      Disgraced NYPD commissioner Bernard Kerik also pardoned today. Is Trump OK with leaving serial killers in jail or is that where he’s drawing the line?

      Trump pardoning Blago is the one that stumps me. Blago, along with his father in law Richard Mell were long time insiders in the corrupt Democratic machine that controls Chicago.The guy was caught on tape trying to trade an appointment to the US Senate for cash and political favors.

      Nothing to be confused about. He was a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice, was an entertaining buffoon on the show, and kissed Trump’s ass. America is 100% a reality/game show to Trump and he makes his decisions the same way. Trump doesn’t think in more complex terms than “He got me ratings and said nice things about me.”

      I guess that's why Rush Limbaugh received the medal of freedom.

He could do a million amazing things between now and election night but this perception is entrenched and will never change.
