Jeff Sessions suffers new humiliation: Trump’s campaign demands he stop invoking the president to win votes

Published

Former Trump Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who is working to win back his old Senate seat in Alabama, has just suffered a fresh humiliation.

The New York Times reports that President Donald Trump’s campaign this week sent a letter to Sessions demanding that he stop tying himself to the president in an effort to win votes.

“The Trump campaign has learned that your U.S. Senate campaign is circulating mailers like the one I have enclosed, in which you misleadingly promote your connections to and ‘support’ of President Trump,” the letter to Sessions’s campaign states. “We only assume your campaign is doing this to confuse President Trump’s loyal supporters in Alabama into believing the president supports your candidacy in the upcoming primary runoff election. Nothing could be further from the truth.”

Trump humiliated Sessions last month when he endorsed Republican rival Tommy Tuberville for the 2020 Alabama Senate race, even though Sessions had repeatedly said complimentary things about Trump during the campaign in an effort to regain his favor.

Trump regularly made Sessions his personal whipping boy during his tenure as attorney general, and he was particularly upset that Sessions recused himself from overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

"...the people who are supposed to be in charge of the national response to the pandemic instead are escalating their attacks on doctors," she said, pointing out that up to 60,000 Americans are testing positive for the virus, each day.

"They're doing this even though they won't mandate the use of masks which are proven to save lives," she said. "They're doing this because the President is continuing to make claims that the only reason the U.S. has a surge in cases is because of an increase in testing."

Literally hours after providing reporters with a list of what an anonymous White House official called mistakes Dr. Anthony Fauci has made over the year on coronavirus, the White House turned the tables to use the veteran immunologist's words to praise President Donald Trump.

On Sunday in a statement to CNN the White House outlined "the number of times Dr. Fauci has been wrong on things."

Calling it a "new campaign of deception," CNN reported Monday morning that "the White House is trying to destroy the reputation of one of America's most respected public servants, Dr. Anthony Fauci, for telling the truth about how bad things are getting."

Crises have a way of sorting the good presidents from the bad.

Historians consistently rank Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt among the top three presidents for their handling of the Civil War, the Great Depression, and World War II.

By contrast, the string of catastrophes that trailed George W. Bush, from Iraq to Hurricane Katrina to his obliviousness to warning signs in the housing market before the 2008 crash guarantee that he will have a permanent place in the bottom tier of presidents.
