But, before the report was even official, liberals rushed to give Sessions their favorite label … racist.
A proud racist!

I’m from Alabama. Jeff Sessions is the definition of “Old South.” I’ve wanted him out of the Senate my whole life, but not like this…

#JeffSessions he is a known racist. Even Repubs know this. He might as well show up in a hood for hearings. At least that would be honest.

The same charges were levied against Gen. Michael Flynn who, it was reported, Trump picked as national security advisor.
Trump appointee checklist:
Bannon: racist – yes, bigot – yes
Flynn: racist – yes, bigot – yes
Sessions: racist – yes, bigot – yes

Flynn – Trump’s new NSA – has been fooled by fake news, believes conspiracy theories, & tweeted anti-Semitic and racist remarks. Great pick!

Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, great pick, he can clean up that cesspool.

Jeff Sessions would be great choice for AG. He would clean up DOJ and make it what it should be – non political.

If true, I’m happy twice:
1) Jeff Sessions AG.
2) Ted Cruz not AG.
