QOTD: The Invisible Attorney General

QOTD: The Invisible Attorney General

by digby


Trump told the Hill that he doesn't have an Attorney General, even condemning poor Jeff Sessions for alleged refusal to truly bring the hammer down on immigrants.

Sessions is doing his best to curry favor. Check out what he said just today:

If you want more shootings, more death, then listen to the ACLU, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and groups who do not know the reality of policing. If you want public safety, then listen to the police professionals who have been intensely studying this for decades.

It's a testament to how scared Trump is of the Russia investigation that he can't acknowledge how much his base just loves that kind of talk from his Attorney General. Just ACLU, ANTIFA and BLM all in one sweeping condemnation!

Maybe Trump's jealous. When it comes to racist dog whistles, Sessions is a past master. If Trump was capable of learning, Sessions could even give him some tips.
