Jeff Sessions
Jeff Sessions is Trump's pick for attorney general.


https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-...y-general/


Quote:He's a climate change skeptic: Here's Sessions in a 2015 hearing questioning Environmental Protection Agency's Gina McCarthy: "Carbon pollution is CO2, and that’s really not a pollutant; that’s a plant food, and it doesn’t harm anybody except that it might include temperature increases."


Quote:Accusations of racism have dogged Sessions's career: Actually, they almost derailed it. In 1986, a Senate committee denied Sessions, then a 39-year-old U.S. attorney in Alabama, a federal judgeship. His former colleagues testified Sessions used the n-word and joked about the Ku Klux Klan, saying he thought they were "okay, until he learned that they smoked marijuana."

Quote:He's "amnesty's worst enemy": The conservative National Review crowned Sessions with that title in 2014, with good reason. Sessions has opposed nearly every immigration bill that has come before the Senate the past two decades that has included a path to citizenship for immigrants in the country illegally.
He's also fought legal immigration, including guest worker programs for illegal immigrants and visa programs for foreign workers in science, math and high-tech. In 2007, Sessions got a bill passed essentially banning for 10 years federal contractors who hire illegal immigrants.

RE: Jeff Sessions
At least he is not wearing a disguise. He has the beady eyed prick look going for him.

As distressing as this is, it doesn't surprise me in the least. What would surprise me would be Trump picking someone decent for any position in his administration.

RE: Jeff Sessions
Sessions is probably going to be bad for state's rights and pot. There will likely be some sparks flying over that.

Look in Full Circle's cabinet thread for some more heart-warming picks. The real ones are just as loony, and just as bad, as his original list of "fantasy picks".

Could've been Giuliani. Just sayin'.

At least Romney is a good choice.

There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide. -Camus

RE: Jeff Sessions
He's also fairly well liked in the senate....sooo....

Also half of congress doesn't believe in climate change. Even some democrats struggle with it, because they don't follow science and have been thoroughly astroturfed by fake "think tanks" paid for by the Koch bros and oil industry. You have to remember their only job is put out counter claims.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I will make a prophesy: Romney will get fired.
