It doesn’t take much, apparently, to offend Democrats. Take Trump’s last EO on travel/vetting from some countries.
Sessions summed up his reaction how crazy it is having the order stopped by “a judge, sitting on an island in the Pacific.” Great, perfect line. Makes the point. Refreshing.
So what is so wrong with that? Nothing. In fact it is right on. That is probably why Dems got rabid about it. You know, that reaction they have to truth. The problem was the line was too good. People might agree.
Immediately the left lashed out with things like, does he know it is a state? Snark aside, they are delirious. The media led news with it as if he said something wrong, like it was a giant gaffe. It was nothing of the sort. It was a truth bomb — that’s what it was. Why they played it up I don’t know. Trying to discredit Sessions makes them look like idiots.
That caused Sessions to rebut their faux outrage:
“I wasn’t diminishing the judge or the island of Hawaii, that beautiful place. Give me a break,” he said.
“I was just making the point that’s very real, one judge, out of 700, has stopped the president of the United States from doing what he believes is necessary to protect our safety and security.”
