A British GQ writer pondered on Twitter if President Obama could "murder [Donald] Trump and [Mike] Pence" and then pardon himself.
The tweet from Rupert Myers, whose describes himself on Twitter as a political correspondent for British GQ, has since been deleted. It was first reported by The Daily Wire.
Myers didn't apologize for the Wednesday post, instead stating he was joking.
