Does the President owe the AG a bit of quid pro quo support?

Then Senator Jeff Sessions put a lot on the line to follow his conscience and get behind the man he thought would make the best president. Maybe the President owes some quid pro quo on that?

SAN DIEGO, July 26, 2017 — In the column, Forbidden Table Talk, I have mostly supported Trump since he became president. I think he is doing an unusually good job of keeping his promises and standing up to the insane political correctness.

The President has been fighting (in addition to Democrats and the main stream media) a fifth column, our cowardly GOP Congress which attempts to break its campaign promises after running for the last seven years on the platform of repealing ObamaCare.

That said, I do not unconditionally support Trump (or anybody) without question and I have serious problems with the public comments he has been making against Jeff Sessions, comments such as the following shared during a New York Times interview:

“Well, Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job, and I would have picked somebody else.”


Don’t get me wrong: I do agree that Sessions should not have recused himself, that this Russia stuff is utter nonsense, and that Trump in the face of massive leaks and a disloyal GOP has every right to feel isolated, perhaps even betrayed.

However, any frustration he legitimately has with Sessions (and it IS legitimate) should be discussed privately and not over the media.

Sessions was the very first Senator to support Trump. Back, when that was unpopular, Sessions put a lot on the line to follow his conscience and get behind the man he thought would make the best president. He has been with Trump from the beginning. He has been falsely accused of racism during the AG confirmation hearings by lying, swinish Democratic Senators who were once his friends and who knew better, but went after him anyway simply because he was now aligned with Trump. He has gone through a lot when he could have instead enjoyed the remainder of a comfortable career as a Senator. Loyalty seems to be important to this president. Perhaps, he should send a little loyalty Session’s way.
