When Donald Trump announced he was running for President, most assumed it was a publicity stunt like his past attempts. One of the pivotal events in his campaign was the endorsement of Jeff Sessions, the first senator to do so.
He nominated Sessions as Attorney General. It has been downhill ever since. Sessions recused himself from the Russian collusion investigation. He really had no choice since he had a number of conversations with Russian officials as part of his senatorial duties. That earned him considerable public scorn from Trump.
Now Trump has gone a step further. He has threatened to fire him if he doesn’t start investigating Hillary Clinton and the DNC. Clinton’s controversies are well known. The DNC is in the news since it actively supported the Clinton campaign when it was supposed to be neutral. All the talk of rigging the primaries is ridiculous. They behaved badly but didn’t tamper with voting machines or bribe voters.
The real problem was a huge misunderstanding between the two men. Sessions assumed Trump was looking for an Attorney General, not a fixer who covers up scandals and jails Democrats. If Sessions has any self-respect left, he should resign. I’m sure he regrets giving up his safe Senate seat.
This makes it clear that if you have Trump as a friend you sure don’t need any enemies.
