Even as Attorney General Jeff Sessions forged ahead with his Justice Department duties Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump continued his angry Twitter rant against the besieged former Alabama senator.
"Why didn't A.G. Sessions replace acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a Comey friend who was in charge of Clinton investigation but got big dollars ($700,000) for his wife's political run from Hillary Clinton and her representatives," Trump tweeted, despite overwhelming encouragement for the president to speak with Sessions directly.
"I would fire somebody that I did not believe could serve me well rather than trying to humiliate him in public, which is a sign of weakness," said Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican. "I would just go ahead and say, 'I appreciate your service, you need to be fired.' "
The Sessions-bashing tweet-storm began last week when Trump cited the attorney general's recusal from the Russia investigation. “Sessions should have never recused himself and if he was going to recuse himself he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else,” Trump told the New York Times. The Twitter attacks have escalated ever since.
Today on “Pat & Stu,” Stu Burguiere had a surprising theory to explain the president’s seemingly irrational behavior.
“The only way this can make any sense,” Stu hypothesized. “He actually did collude with the Russians and knows they are going to uncover it in this investigation. And so he’s getting out in front of it and he’s saying all these people are against him.”
“It wouldn’t surprise me,” Pat Gray said.
