Gentleman and Jerk

Trump, the all-too-well-known New York jerk and bully, has now targeted Jeff Sessions, a southern gentleman, over his recusal from the federal investigation into RussiaGate.

This is one more in a series of stupid political fails from the trumpster in the dumpster!

Trump publicly bullying his longtime supporter in a series of tweets appears to take aim at shaming Sessions into resigning.

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!” Trump wrote in one.

In another: “Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign - ‘quietly working to boost Clinton.’ So where is the investigation A.G. @seanhannity.”

This latest tweet storm against his own Cabinet member reveals that the president is freaking out over RussiaGate.

“I’m very disappointed with the attorney general, but we will see what happens,” Trump said. “Time will tell. Time will tell.”

Trump’s dissatisfaction with Sessions really exploded last week, when Trump blamed Sessions for the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is overseeing the RussiaGate investigation.

Democratic and Republican legal folks alike say it’s not the job of the attorney general to protect the president.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., strongly defended Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is collecting a flood of support as the trumpster in the dumpster ramps up his bullying campaign, with even some of Sessions’ fiercest critics offering a simple defense — he’s just (ignoring Trump and) doing his job.

Trump’s outrage might just backfire. Sessions allies are amazed at how far Trump has taken his attacks: "The Trump’s base knew Jeff Sessions long before they knew Donald Trump."

Trump’s base is obviously eroding. There has been a considerable decline in the number of Americans who strongly approve of Trump, from a peak of around 30 percent in February to just 21 or 22 percent now.

I do not know anyone who would accuse Trump of "staggering under the load of a heavy intellect."
