Dumb question

What if Rudy killed a hooker in cold blood and Trump pardoned him?

Does he get off scot free or is there some superseding principal that says “nope, can’t pardon him”
Yes.

Then why didn't he just ask that instead of offering a specific hypothetical?

Nevermind, dumb question begets further dumb questions.

Nixon was pardoned for all potential crimes on the US without identifying anything. It was never tried in court. I would try it in court if he did it this time.
This is one of the things that always bugged me about Nixon. He accepted the pardon, but spent his post-presidency saying things like "when the President does it, then it is not illegal". That's not how pardons work, boss.

How dare that diaper-wearing pissbaby make fun of other people.
Someone's voluntary conduct and public comportment is fertile ground for mockery and ridicule. Making fun of someone because of a congenital birth defect is loathsome, especially for someone seeking public office.

Would Trump offering pardons in exchange for bribes be criminal enough for the conservatives here?

This actually makes it worse for him and social media.

Social Media would likely be severely impacted by this and would require human intervention on fact checking.

Trump would have 95% of his tweets immediately removed because they're false.

I actually don't care, take Social Media away, but DiaperDon(the reason why he's upset is being called this name) would be even more pissed when he gets up and deleted because he can't spout his nonsense anymore.

That's just a threat to tear the system apart because we can't say untrue or mean things.

Taking social media away from him would be the best thing possible, imo. Probably one of the few things I agree with him on now, take it away, won't impact me really at all.

I wouldn't mind Twitter, Facebook and the like being shut down forever, for everyone. These platforms, at this point in time, do much more harm than good.

Parler inundated with pr0n:
The surge of #sexytrumpgirl posts highlighted a broader dilemma for Parler: The site’s lax moderation policies, in keeping with its claims to being a bastion of free speech, have helped it become a magnet for pornographers, escort services and online sex merchants using hashtags targeting conservatives, such as #keepamericasexy and #milfsfortrump2020.

See, 2020 isn't all bad.

Similarly: ""After swingers convention held in New Orleans, 41 test positive for coronavirus, organizer says. " Masks were worn at events, social distancing was enforced...""

Parler is already getting heat because they've been removing posts as well. Who know, a company who likes to make money, doesn't want to let just anyone post anything on it's site.

Does this make the California thing okay or this just a "both sides" thing?

I don't really know who is advising him on these things. But his entire presidency has been one 4-year long Opposite Day, so this really isn't surprising.
