    Jeff Sessions should primary Trump in 2020

    Jeff Sessions should primary Trump in 2020

    Maybe it’s time for Jeff Sessions to tell black Americans, and everyone else, “What the hell do you have to lose? Give me a chance.”

    Maybe it’s time for Sessions to run a campaign against incumbent politicians who are “all talk, no action.”

    The former U.S. attorney general was the last person in the administration who gave a damn about doing the most important things President Trump said he would do, particularly with regard to Trump’s number one issue, immigration. Sessions, as head of the Justice Department, moved immigration enforcement in line with existing law, expanded the immigration courts so that the system moved more quickly, and appointed immigration judges with backgrounds in legal prosecution.


    During the 2016 campaign, Sessions, then a senator out of Alabama, was among the first of Trump’s endorsements with real authority behind it. Trump, reviled in Washington, needed it to boost his immigration credentials, which had proved a runaway hit with Republican voters, so much so that he got out of it what every winning national campaign needs: a rallying cry, in this case, “Build the wall."

    For zealously doing the job he was selected to do and for putting his neck out for Trump when he didn’t have to, Sessions was ultimately machine gunned with a bunch of dumb tweets by an ungrateful president, who, judging by the available evidence, has given up on pursuing the immigration platform that got him elected.

    Trump had immense political capital after the election, with Republicans in control of both houses of Congress and a Democratic Party without direction. He then squandered it on an unpopular tax cut and now prison reform, neither of which he campaigned on.

    The one thing Trump had that none of his Republican opponents had in the 2016 primary is a set of balls. For what remains political history’s greatest mystery, he handed them over to House Speaker Paul Ryan after the election.

    He’s currently figuring out how to pick up his face after embarrassing himself in negotiations with Democrats to get a meager $5 billion for his border wall “artistically designed steel slats.”

    Trump disposed of Sessions, the person who did the most to fulfill his campaign pledge on immigration, and now he seems to have completely forgotten that immigration was a winning issue for him at all.

    For anyone who wants to argue that immigration isn’t the most powerful item Trump took to the White House, I give you the New York Times’ smartest writer, Thomas Edsall, who wrote on its potency in 2017 under the headline, “How Immigration Foiled Hillary.”

    Where is Sessions now? Maybe he’ll remember why he supported Trump in 2016. Maybe he'll realize why, for the same reasons, he should run against him in 2020.

    Yep, the way he treated Jeff Sessions really placed a sour taste in my mouth. You combine that with Trump's failure to end DACA immediately as promised and you have the two things that disappoint me most about Trump so far. Of course there has been other disappointments, but those are the two that really stand out for me.

    While you're plotting the demise of our President, he's been busy designing a new steel-slat wall that is very inexpensive to build to save our country. There's pictures now, you might want to look for them. Trump tweeted the design (fastest way to tell us stuff) and Fox The Five just showed it on Tee Vee.

    A fence is a fence is a fence. Replacing the so-called anti-scaling plate with spikes on the end doesn't change that very real fact. Furthermore, Trump is just throwing those spikes on the top so it varies a small bit from the current fencing we already have along some section of the border. He figures if he changes it just a small bit, he can then call it his wall. How ridiculous is that ..... what a joke.

    What is your problem with a fence? Only you and the DemoQuacks care about wall versus fence. They are the same thing in our language. Trump doesn't care. Trump Supporters don't care. Republicans don't care. Just DemoQuacks and you care.
