Donald Trump Has Berated Jeff Sessions for the Last 24 Hours

President Donald Trump doesn't have the best relationship with his Attorney General Jeff Sessions, but he's taken that animosity to a new level over the past couple of days.

The abuse began yesterday when Trump was interviewed on Fox & Friends the day after his personal attorney plead guilty and admitted to bribing porn star Stormy Daniels on the president's orders. Trump questioned "what kind of man" Sessions is for accepting the position of Attorney General, and then recusing himself from the investigation into the 2016 election.

“Even my enemies say that Jeff Sessions should have told you that he was going to recuse himself and then you wouldn’t have put him in,” Trump said. “He took the job and then he said, ‘I’m going to recuse myself.’ I said, ‘What kind of a man is this?’”

Trump then said the only reason he even gave Sessions the Attorney General position was because he was an original supporter of the president early on in his campaign.

Sessions did not appreciate his abilities being questioned, and released a statement saying, “While I am Attorney General, the actions of the Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations. I demand the highest standards, and when they are not met, I take action.”

I believe this is referred to as "passive-aggressive."

Trump then made a series of tweets this morning responding to Sessions' statement, and said if the Attorney General isn't influenced by political considerations, then he should investigate Democrats for basically like a million things that right-wing conspiracy sites accuse them of doing.

The entire relationship between Sessions and Trump is so bizarre. Sessions reportedly nearly resigned only a few months after taking office because the president berated him for recusing himself from the Russia investigation. But then he's decided to stay, and for the past year has basically been accused of doing a horrible job by his boss, yet his boss refuses to fire him. 

Hopefully Trump's lawyer will finally give the dirt the Mueller investigation needs to end our long, national nightmare.

Mickey Hart knows a thing or two about cannabis. An accomplished musicologist and drummer, Hart is best known as a longtime member of the Grateful Dead, which he joined in 1967. Anyone who's been to a Dead show can attest their music pairs exceptionally well with weed - it's no surprise that they're deeply tied to the origin of 420.

Can we see some ID please?
