What an evil unfit bigot Sessions is. This is how the rule of law gets perverted.   
 

Matthew Miller, a former Department of Justice spokesperson in the Obama administration, called the comment “an extraordinary attack on a federal judge's right to do his job by a sitting AG.”

“Completely inappropriate,” Miller tweeted.

“Someone please tell Sessions that Hawaii is a state,” Chelsea Clinton replied. “An American in Hawaii is as American as one from Alabama. Or Indiana.” The latter part of her comment appeared to be a reference to Trump's attacks on Judge Gonzalo Curiel, an Indiana-born judge who oversaw a pair of California lawsuits against Trump University.

The Justice Department followed up later Thursday with a statement defending Sessions' remark.

He is a racist pig.

It is astounding that an attorney general would call out a federal judge.

I blame the Senate. It had already dejected him for a judge ship because of his racism. So now they confirm him as attorney general.

I am getting a bit worried that Trumps and his minions are showing signs of dementia or something along those lines.

 

Trump; talking about what has been going on for decades, doesn't realize that there have been 3 NK presidents and doesn't mention the name(s) substituting 'Gentleman' puuuuhhhhhleessee. That is a brain fart filler if I ever heard one.

Yah maybe Obama, the Bush's and Clinton messed up and lied. But at least the did it with class and not sounded like a Jr. High dropout from the Bronx. Sorry Bronx abut the implication.

 

Sessions; 'that island' another brain fart..... dude it is Hawaii.

 

Spicer; 'Holocaust centers'? :rolleyes: Not once but several times. News bulletin to Spicer 'engage brain before starting mouth'. OOOooopppssss my bad...no brain. Well maybe....a parrots.

 

Tillerson; Doesn't say 'jack' for weeks. Then he opens his mouth and he sounds like something from a 1960's Sgt Rock (DC comics) comic book. Then he doesn't even know where a frk'n entire Carrier fleet is.

 

But in his defense. Most everyone else in the Admin didn't either. :o  I dunno about you ... I lose socks, I misplace sunglasses, I may for a minute or two forget where I parked my car BUT A FLEET? That is like me not knowing where my house is....only worse....my house isn't nuc equipped. :lol:

 

And these are supposedly the best of the best? :huh:

 

Show of hands...who of you thinks you could do a better job,at least at speaking than these three axx wipes? I got my hand up. :lol:

Sessions is 100% correct, Hawaii is quite insulated from the effects of illegal immigration. It's very easy for them to  be all for it.

The Travel Ban has nothing to do with Illegal Immigration

Sessions is a Jim Crow era white cracker from Selma, Alabama. What else would you expect from someone that heralds from a backwards state?

Judge Watson was appointed during the Obama admin. Sessions voted yes for his confirmation.

OK then, he's not a white cracker.

LOL.

Keep coming with the examples. Glad you're a supporter.

I don't have a point. I was simply responding on your comment about low expectations for people from Alabama. 

Hank Aaron was also from Alabama.

I don't know why you think I'm a supporter. I was pointing out the irony.

...and that proves what? That because 0.00001% (or whatever) of the population have gone on to do good things, that should change my - overall - opinion about Alabama?

Yes, I realize that there are good people, good places in every state. Alabama included.

Irony about what...that because you have a few examples of good people from Alabama, that somehow negates Sessions past, or the racist past of Alabama - as a whole?

No. Some people, myself included, would find it ironic that Sessions voted in favor of the appointment of the judge he is now complaining about.

OK, fair enough. I was not aware that he voted for him. Yes, I agree, very ironic.

The language used was what I was most surprised about.
