I asked Jeff Sessions by phone if he had a response to Trump calling him a "total disaster" + "embarrassment" to Alabama. He said: "I don’t have any comment on that—I just haven’t wanted to get drawn into any of that." Said he was just enjoying a "beautiful Alabama October day."— Elaina Plott (@elainaplott) October 10, 2019
I had forgotten about our Senate race in 2020.
If Jeff Sessions runs for his old Senate seat, I will be voting for at least one Republican after all in 2020, particularly one with Blompf’s strong endorsement. As everyone here in Alabama is fully aware, it is Doug Jones who has been the total disaster.
“GORKA: Last two questions. How are we doing, Mr. President, in defeating the Deep State?
TRUMP: Well, I think, if it all works out, I will consider it one of the greatest things I’ve done. You look at what’s happened to the absolute scum at the top of the FBI. You look at what’s happening over at the Justice Department, now we have a great attorney general. Whereas before that, with Jeff Sessions, it was a disaster. Just a total disaster. He was an embarrassment to the great state of Alabama. And I put him there because he endorsed me, and he wanted it so badly. And I wish he’d never endorsed me.
It would have been the greatest non-endorsement I ever had. But it’s too bad. But now we have a great attorney general. And I think with the destruction of the Deep State, certainly I’ve done big damage. They’ve come after me in so many different ways; it’s been such a disgrace. But I think it’ll be one of my great achievements.”
I was happy with Sessions in the Senate.
Jeff Sessions was the only Republican who I liked for years. I can’t imagine anyone else doing a better job. If Blompf is reelected, Sessions can be counted on to oppose his amnesties.
