Donald John Trump is trying to execute an impossible stunt.
He is seeking to turn Attorney General Jeff Sessions into a sympathetic character in the drama that’s unfolding in Washington, D.C.
Trump fired off a tweet that said, among other things, that “Our A.G. is scared stiff and Missing in Action. It is all starting to be revealed – not pretty.”
Trump wants Sessions to be quicker to defend him against critics who suggest there’s something to the “Russia thing” that special counsel is investigating.
Now he says Sessions is MIA and a scaredy-cat to boot?
Let’s review for a brief moment.
Sessions had to recuse himself from the Russia collusion probe because of his ties to the Trump presidential campaign. That meant that the AG couldn’t investigate himself. So, he recused himself — as he should have done. It was the proper course to take.
Then he squandered much of that good will be revealing that hideous immigration policy that takes children away from their illegal immigrant parents.
Now the president has decided to hang the AG out to dry for at least the third or fourth time by declaring he is scared to act.
Good grief, Mr. President. Shut … up!
