RADDATZ: Is there anything you would like Donald Trump do differently?
SESSIONS: Well, I think he’s going to need to learn. He’s going to need to understand really completely — as you know, Martha, how complex this world is, even within Baghdad and the region around Baghdad — Kurds, al Anbar, Sunni, Shia, Iranians, so forth. It’s just a very, very complex world and you have to be careful when you commit a military force.
It is almost like Republicans are trying to make Hillary Clinton’s argument for her. The last thing that the chairman of Trump’s own foreign policy committee should ever say during an interview is that the Republican nominee needs to learn.
Hillary Clinton argument for her candidacy is that she won’t need on the job training. Clinton is experienced, and she will be ready to hit the ground running on her first day in office. Republicans, like Sen. Sessions, spent years criticizing President Obama as inexperienced, but they are supporting a candidate who by their own admission needs to learn.
The United States of America doesn’t have the time to turn the most powerful job in the world over to a guy who has already exhibited questionable judgment and whose own supporters admit is not as well informed on the issues as he needs to be.
Donald Trump is not running for the school board or town council. Republicans will nominate this man to be the next president. The idea that Trump needs to learn is not acceptable.
Republicans have had a terrible weekend of news about their nominee, but Sen. Sessions just gave Hillary Clinton the video she needed for a 30-second television ad about why voters should not even think about voting for Donald Trump.
Just when Republicans thought that things couldn’t get worse, they did.
