On Thursday, CNN’s Jake Tapper started off his show by hitting on President Donald Trump‘s pardon of conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza and subsequent tease to reporters that more pardons may be coming, including pardons to former Apprentice alums Martha Stewart and Rod Blagojevich.

“Martha Stewart, Blagojevich, if other Celebrity Apprentice contestants are in need of a pardon, now is a good time to raise your hand,” Tapper said at the start of the show.

He then quipped: “President Trump seemingly passing out pardons to heroes of the far-right almost as eagerly as Oprah once gifted Pontiacs to suburban moms.”
