Dinesh D’Souza is absolutely thrilled that he didn’t get jail time as part of his sentence for committing a campaign law felony. Immediately after being sentenced, he went on Fox News and tried yet again to claim he was the victim of selective prosecution and to crow about having escaped Obama’s hangman’s noose.
Dinesh D’Souza used his September 23 appearance on The Kelly File to resuscitate the myth that his indictment was political retribution. D’Souza described his reaction to his sentence to host Megyn Kelly, saying “I’ve got a big smile on my face now,” because “this was really an effort to put me out of business…and a federal judge said ‘no.'” D’Souza added, “There seems to be a pattern of this administration using the instruments of the law, the IRS, and so on to go after its critics.” Despite D’Souza’s recently announced sentence and his guilty plea to a felony, Kelly continued her longstanding support for the right-wing media darling, declaring “Only you, Dinesh, could walk away from this kind of an experience where you admit you committed a felony, you were facing 16 months in jail, and now the whole process has restored your faith in America, the judicial system and it’s made you love the country even more.”
Seriously, Megyn Kelly, could you fellate him just a little more on national television? They did everything but show a picture of him wrapped in an American flag while riding a bald eagle.
