U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions Responds To Trump’s Criticism And It’s Pretty Damn Awesome

Recently, Donald Trump trashed U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from overseeing the Russia investigation, stating that if he’d known Sessions was going to recuse himself, the corrupt POTUS never would have selected him as Attorney General in the first place. In an interview with The New York Times, Trump said:

Jeff Sessions takes the job, gets into the job, recuses himself, which frankly I think is very unfair to the president. How do you take a job and then recuse yourself? If he would have recused himself before the job, I would have said, ‘Thanks, Jeff, but I’m not going to take you.’ It’s extremely unfair — and that’s a mild word — to the president.”

“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.”

Today, Sessions responded to Trump’s criticism by pretty much brushing the POTUS’ comments off completely. Taking Trump to task, Sessions said that he loved his job and would continue to serve. In response to a question about Trump’s comments, Sessions said:

We love this job, we love this department, and I plan to continue to do so as long as that is appropriate.”

“I have the honor of serving as attorney general. It’s something that goes beyond any thought I would have ever had for myself.”

Also standing with Sessions was Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, two other officials who Trump had trashed in the same interview. Trump pointed out Rosenstein’s ties to Democratic Baltimore and stated that McCabe’s wife accepted money from a top Democrat during a campaign. When Rosenstein was asked about Trump’s criticism, he also responded in a similar way:

I was proud to be here yesterday, I’m proud to be here today, I’ll be proud to work here tomorrow.”

Trump is bitter as hell that he has not gotten his way in his Russian scandal, especially as the situation heats up. Perhaps he’s learning that no matter what empty threats he makes, no one respects him and no one is afraid of him. He’s going down, and no amount of bullying can change that.
