Jeff Sessions was at long last confirmed to be the next Attorney General of the United States. His farewell comments as he leaves the Unites States Senate:
I think I don't hate this. What do you think?
Today's Ross Report:
Another day, another mini crisis in Washington, DC, as if President Trump lights a match and the liberal media pour gasoline on it.
On Wednesday, it was Donald Trump’s tweet that said, and I quote, “My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person -- always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!” The posting was retweeted by the @POTUS account, the official twitter account for the president as president.
The left’s outrage machine went into high gear with Wolf Blitzer repeatedly asking a Republican congressman inane questions based on Democratic talking points, because he’s utterly incapable of anything else. Seriously, how that guy is still on TV is beyond me.
Also yesterday, after meeting with Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal told the press that Gorsuch had said he was “disheartened by the demoralizing comments” made by Donald Trump about the judiciary. The comment was confirmed by a spokesman for Gorsuch, setting off a bunch of joyful headlines throughout the media trying to divide the president from the future Justice.
My reaction to these two events is fairly similar: They’re both mountains being made out of molehills, but Donald Trump keeps building unneeded molehills.
Sure, it’s understandable that a proud father would stand up for his children. But he’s president of the United States and he simply must stop publicly criticizing individual corporations. I also thought it was a real mistake to retweet that note from the official POTUS account.
The Gorsuch situation is more interesting. Judge Gorsuch has long criticized the politicization of the judiciary. Some will say that President Trump is doing just that with any commentary about the current case about his executive order regarding travel to the US from seven Muslim countries. But Trump’s comments were actually correct. Is it making courts political to point out when a court oversteps its constitutional authority?
More importantly, making such a comment is a brilliant tactical move by Gorsuch to make it much more difficult for Democrats to oppose him. It’s remarkable that the liberal pinheads in the media don’t recognize that by building this particular mountain they’re playing right into Donald Trump’s hands?
