Sad KKKeebler Elf Bullied by Boss

According to The Post, Jeff Sessions just can’t worm his way back into Trump’s affections, no matter how hard he tries. And he tries really hard, y’all — doing everything but passing one of those “Do you like me — YES / NO” notes from elementary school during cabinet meetings:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is trying to find his way back into President Trump’s good graces.

For months, Sessions has asked senior White House aides to make sure the president knows what he is doing at the Justice Department, two White House advisers said, and has told allies he hopes policy decisions that garner news coverage will please Trump. Sessions’s team at Justice has crafted a public campaign to highlight the work it is doing to advance the president’s agenda. The department has also begun looking into matters that Trump has publicly complained are not being pursued…

But Sessions, who was one of Trump’s earliest backers and gave up a safe Senate seat to join the administration, has, by all accounts, been unable to repair his relationship with the president. Trump has dismissed praise of Sessions, according to four White House officials and advisers, as he continues to rage about the Russia investigation and Sessions’s decision to recuse himself from the probe into Moscow’s meddling in the 2016 election and whether there was any coordination with the Trump’s campaign…

White House officials have begun privately guessing who will replace Sessions — even though he has said he has no plans to leave. Trump does not like to fire people — contrary to his TV image — and by publicly humiliating him has unsuccessfully tried to make Sessions miserable and force him to quit…

Trump is even turned off by the portrayal of Sessions on “Saturday Night Live” by Kate McKinnon, advisers said. A senior White House official said that Trump’s frustrations were not a reflection of Sessions but that he found the portrayal “insulting.”

I hope Kate McKinnon realizes she is one of the most powerful women on the planet. She brought Spicer down, and* if she keeps relentlessly mocking Sessions, perhaps Trump will nut up and fire him too. Probably not, though, as the GOP Senate indicated it won’t seat a replacement.

Of course, the thing Trump blames Sessions for — recusal from the Trump-Russia investigation — is one of the few examples of Sessions behaving in an ethical manner. It’s a stretch to even call it ethical; Sessions had no choice. But his boss is too dumb to know that.

Sessions is a thoroughly despicable human being and one of the most destructive forces in the Trump administration. It’s a daily insult and disgrace that such a bigoted goober is in charge of the Justice Department, of all things. But at least the bastard is miserable on the job.

*It was Melissa McCarthy who brought Spicer down by feminizing him in the eyes of his sexist pig of a boss — thanks for the correction, Mary G! Another thought: maybe SNL should find a woman to portray Trump? He allegedly doesn’t like Alec Baldwin’s portrayal, but Alec Baldwin is classically handsome. I think it would sting more if a woman took over. Food for thought, SNL!

    Who knows, though, maybe Sessions is dumb enough that back when they were best buds and Trump was saying “yeah, sounds great” to all his bigoted plans, he thought he actually cared.

    But I thought he was being a strong leader who was bringing people together!

    President Donald Trump rejected a pitch Thursday from a bipartisan team of senators on a compromise immigration deal to protect “Dreamers” while increasing border security.

    Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin and Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham met with Trump to discuss a compromise plan from a small group of six senators, but were rebuffed and told to keep working, Durbin said.

    ….

    The setback comes as the January 19 deadline for reaching agreement on government spending is rapidly approaching and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program is set to end in early March.

    “I’m not sure what the next step will be,” Durbin told reporters. “The President invited us to — at his little get-together in the Cabinet room — to come up with proposals, and we did. It’s a bipartisan proposal which we’ve worked on for four months in the Senate, and I don’t know what happens next.”

    I don’t see it. “Roseanne” was edgy at the time but television has sprinted onward since, while she’s the same Roseanne. Pass.

    Shout out to Laurie Metcalf, who I never ID’d while watching “Lady Bird.” Terrific work in a not especially warm role.

    I have yet to see “Lady Bird,” even though I keep hearing good things about it. Last year, I saw a good chunk of the most acclaimed films of the year. This year, I’ve been too busy or too distracted.

    What’s with these guys and their complete lack of guts? I were Sessions I would be loudly saying “I gave up my Senate seat for this crap? I suppose I could go back, oh, that’s right Bannon got a Democrat elected to replace me”

    @trollhattan: Even Will and Grace seems lame to me now. Forty year-old people simply do not leap into one another’s arms, not matter how excited they are. And I say that as someone who LOVES Eric McCormack.

    It went on to say we should get more immigrants from Norway. Of course from a Norge perspective maybe we’re the shithole country…

    It’s a coin flip between Sessions and Scott Pruitt who is the most destructive

    What does Zinke need to do to get some recognition around here?

    @trollhattan: Metcalf was phenomenal in the HBO show Getting On. Great show all around, with a superb cast.

    @WaterGirl: It won’t include me, either, and I loved her original show (except for the last couple of seasons). Along with John Goodman, the show had Laurie Metcalf, Johnny Galecki, Sara Gilbert…

    Conservatives who think there’s a large underserved audience of conservatives out there who are just waiting for the right conservative show to come along usually end up broke. I predict that’s going to happen this time, too.

    @Jay S:

    Dead thread, but here’s the Q&A now that I’ve been dismissed:

    Have you ever been in a car accident? (Yes)
    Have you ever had a back or neck injury due to a car accident? (Yes)
    Have you ever seen an orthopedist or chiropractor? (Yes)

    Plus I’m still on crutches with my injured knee, so I’m a personal injury defense lawyer’s nightmare. Dismissed!
