Sarah Huckabee Sanders Changes Her Tune On Jeff Sessions To Cater To Disturbed Trump

During an off camera gaggle, Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders threw Attorney General Jeff Sessions under the bus and said that Trump regrets appointing the AG.

Sanders at first said that Trump didn’t regret appointing Sessions:

She changed her story at the press briefing:

Huckabee Sanders changed her tune to match that of Trump, who told The New York Times:

So Jeff Sessions takes the job, gets into the job, recuses himself. I then have — which, frankly, I think is very unfair to the president. How do you take a job and then recuse yourself? If he would have recused himself before the job, I would have said, “Thanks, Jeff, but I can’t, you know, I’m not going to take you.” It’s extremely unfair, and that’s a mild word, to the president.

The White House apparently wants Jeff Sessions to quit, but he doesn’t want to quit. Sessions showed no signs of stepping down during a news conference on Thursday, “We love this job, we love this department, and I plan to continue to do so as long as that is appropriate.”

Instead of growing into the White House and becoming more presidential, the White House has taken on the personality of the president. 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has been warped by Trump’s whims into an emotionally unstable symbol of democracy.

Trump never takes responsibility. His problems are always someone else’s fault, and now the country is faced the bizarre situation of a president who is at war with his own attorney general.
