Senator Jeff Sessions, the first U.S. senator to come out publicly to support Donald Trump, has now been named as Trump’s Attorney General.
Early on Sessions attended rallies with Donald Trump and spoke of his endorsement for his campaign, which was considered a blow to the efforts of Ted Cruz who also wanted his coveted support. At one of Trump’s rallies Sessions said:
“I told Donald Trump this isn’t a campaign, this is a movement. Look at what’s happening. The American people are not happy with their government.”
One of Session’s biggest claims to fame among conservatives has been his hard line stance against illegal immigration and his support for border security, which very closely align with Trump’s border policies. Senator Sessions has at times waged a one man war in congress trying to push for stronger borders, but was often overwhelmed by the Obama administration.
The Senator from Alabama has also been a vocal opponent of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal that Obama had been pushing, up until the point when Donald Trump won the election that is. Trump has vowed to renegotiate bad trade deals and has made trade and bringing back American jobs the cornerstones of his campaign.
However, fresh off of accusing Trump’s pick for advisor Stephen Bannon of being a racist and an anti-Semite, Democrats are already branding Senator Jeff Sessions a “career racist” for some allegations made back in 1985 of him being “racially insensitive“.
Sessions had denied these charges over 30 years ago, saying:
“I am not a racist, I am not insensitive to blacks. I have supported civil rights activity in my state. I have done my job with integrity, equality, and fairness for all,” he told the Senate Judiciary Committee.”
Leave it to the Democrats to big up a few stray comments from 30 years ago and brand someone a horrific, chronic racist for the rest of their lives because of it.
It’s starting to sound like an old fashioned witch-hunt straight out of Salem on the mainstream media, with every new appointment by Donald Trump being pointed at and called “racist!” That seems to be all it takes on the left, is for every liberal media outlet to point and shout “racist”, “bigot” or “anti-Semite” and everyone loses their minds.
The whole racist narrative has rapidly been played out during Trump’s campaign, as the media has already claimed that both him and his supporters are all racists, which only led to average everyday Americans pushing back against being branded with these offensive terms. Political Commentator Van Jones on CNN even called the election of Donald Trump a “Whitelash”, implying he only won because of racism.
Voters are rapidly getting burnt out on the whole “everyone who voted for Donald Trump is a racist” narrative, and the media has used this term so much that it has totally diminished its effectiveness.
Just today political analyst Pat Caddell told Breitbart News Daily host Alex Marlow, “They just call everybody a racist,” referring to CNN. Caddell called the network “outrageous.”
The selection of Senator Jeff Sessions for Attorney General has sent shock waves throughout the Democratic party, while at the same time invigorating Trump’s supporters. Bloomberg describes the speculation on if Sessions will follow through with an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email case, as well as what this means for Trump’s administration:
One of his earliest decisions would be whether to follow through on Trump’s campaign promises to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the e-mail practices of his election opponent, Hillary Clinton. Before the election, Sessions called for a special prosecutor.
Trump also has yet to say whether he’ll ask for the resignation of Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey, who he criticized over the handling of the investigation into Clinton and for not recommending criminal charges against her.
Sessions would also be deeply involved in vetting potential Supreme Court picks for Trump, including one to fill the seat of Antonin Scalia, who died in February.
Another wise choice by President-elect Donald Trump. Jeff Sessions is sure to strike fear into Hillary Clinton and anyone else involved in massive government corruption.
