This week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions decided to share some of his wisdom on ‘The Mark Levin Show.’ Sessions is totally amazed that a judge in Hawaii could block amateur president Donald Trump’s executive order halting immigration from several majority Muslim countries. Hawaii is part of the United States, by the way, unless you’re Donald Trump, then Hawaii is part of Kenya.
“We’ve got cases moving in the very, very liberal Ninth Circuit, who, they’ve been hostile to the order,” Sessions said. “We won a case in Virginia recently that was a nicely-written order that just demolished, I thought, all the arguments that some of the other people have been making.”
“We are confident that the President will prevail on appeal and particularly in the Supreme Court, if not the Ninth Circuit. So this is a huge matter,” he continued. “I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the President of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and Constitutional power.”
As if that wasn’t enough, Sessions went on to say that “judges don’t get to psychoanalyze” Trump.
“I think our President, having seen some of these really weird interpretations of the executive orders that he’s put out, I think he’s more understanding now that we need judges who follow the law, not make law,” Sessions continued.
“The judges don’t get to psychoanalyze the President to see if the order he issues is lawful. It’s either lawful or it’s not. I think that it will be real important for America to have judges in the model of Judge (Neil) Gorsuch and (the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin) Scalia, people who serve under the law, under the Constitution, not above it, and they are faithful to the law. They honor it and don’t try to remake it as they’d like it to be,” he added while not mentioning one single centrist or left-leaning Justice.
Unless it was moved while we were sleeping, Hawaii is a state. I am really amazed that a bigoted arsehole that Trump chose to be top cop of this country said,”I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the President of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and Constitutional power.”
Clearly, he doesn’t know the Constitution or geography.
