Ronald J. Krotoszynski Jr., a professor at the University of Alabama School of Law refuted President Donald Trump’s remarks that stereotyped Southern lawyers in an article published in The New York Times. 

In veteran journalist, Bob Woodward’s forthcoming book “Fear: Trump in the White House,” claimed that Trump referred to his own Attorney General Jeff Sessions as “a dumb Southerner” and “idiot.”

The book also claims that Trump called  “mentally retarded,”

“[Trump used] an inappropriate epithet that targets people with developmental disabilities and parodied his Southern accent to aides,” Krotoszynski wrote.

Trump allegedly said he wished Sessions went to an Ivy League school like Harvard or Yale. Krotoszynski pointed out that law school is not the only factor that determines a successful lawyer.

“A person’s abilities as a lawyer [is not] entirely defined by the three years he or she spent in law school. Professional experience and judgment matter too, “Krotoszynski wrote.

He added, “Whether or not Jeff Sessions is an excellent attorney general is a question about which reasonable minds can and will differ. But it has nothing to do with his legal education at the University of Alabama School of Law. Our president, who claims to be a man of the people, should know better.”
