What kind of man is this?

 

There’s not much that most honorable folks could ever say in favor of U.S. Attorney General (AG) Jeff Sessions… who Donald Trump promptly fired yesterday.

Indeed, the now X-AG’s one and only saving grace is that he had been lawyerly enough and had harbored just enough ethical values to promptly recuse himself in the matter of Russian meddling and possible Trumpian collusion during America’s 2016 elections.

There was little else Sessions could do considering how [1] he had so closely participated in Trump’s rise to power and [2] Trump had so handsomely rewarded him with that powerful, prestigious, AG gig.

Let’s review the text to that above clip… i.e., what Trump said during that August ’18 FOX interview…

“He [Sessions] took the job and then he said, ‘I’m going to recuse myself.’ I said, ‘What kind of a man is this?’ And by the way, he was on the campaign. You know, the only reason I gave him the job, because I felt loyalty. He was an original supporter.'”

For the edification of Trump… here are three basic truths in this matter. [1] Sessions had been obligated to recuse himself, [2] an AG is NEVER beholden to the prez who appointed him and (more to the point) [3] an AG’s job description is not now… NOR has it ever been… NOR shall it ever be to demonstrate misguided loyalty by aiding and abetting any corrupt president’s attempt to cover up criminal and/or treasonous behavior.

Since this apparently exceeds Trump’s educational and ethical pay grade… of the fake prez we must now ask ourselves… and more to the point… ask aloud…

“What kind of man is this?”
