On Thursday, the Attorney General of the United States, the top law enforcement officer in the country, decided he’d do as his boss has done on numerous occasions and take a cheap shot at a federal judge.
Appearing on the ultra conservative Mark Levin radio show, Sessions said he was astonished that a federal judge in Hawaii had put major portions of Trump’s second executive order on travel from Muslim nations on indefinite hold, adding:
“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.”
What makes Sessions’ comments twice is galling is the fact that he voted to confirm U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson–the judge “sitting on an island in the Pacific”–and also that he appears not to appreciate that the island he refers to is the 50th state in the union, Hawaii. Sessions probably doesn’t recognize Hawaii’s statehood since it’s the birthplace of former President Obama, and a racist asshat like our current Attorney General cannot stand to admit the legitimacy of the 44th President.
Thankfully, social media swung into action and gave Sessions a heaping helping of vitriol:

#IslandInThePacific was the site of the most horrific attack on the U.S. until 9/11. An American flag flew. Not a Confederate one! Hick!

I'll note for Jeff Sessions' benefit that the #IslandInThePacific, unlike his home state of Alabama, never tried to LEAVE the United States.

Sessions, just like his good friend in the Oval Office, is a disgrace to everything this country stands for.
