|Manson elated after release.|
In an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews at his new Trump Tower residence, Manson said his release from a California prison only confirms his deep-held secret belief that he would be pardoned someday by a sympathetic president. "I wanted Trump to beat Clinton so bad, as I knew it would probably be my last chance for a get-out-jail free card," the 82-year-old Manson said as he choked back tears from his swastika-tattooed face. "Finally, a US leader publicly supporting Helter Skelter."
Trump won wide praise and condemnation for his first presidential pardon following his assumption to the 45th presidency on Jan. 20. The Ku Klux Klan said it was planning to host rallies in several cities. The NAACP said the pardon was an abuse of power, an assertion that Trump tweeted amounted to "Fake News."
Speaking to TheYellowDailyNews in an exclusive Oval Office interview here, Trump said Los Angeles County jurors who convicted Manson five decades ago "didn't really understand both sides of the story, that a race war was coming, and that we might as well as get it the hell over with sooner rather than later."
"There's blame on both sides," Trump said.
