Hawaiian Senators Just Schooled Sessions On Constitutional Powers

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Thursday that he was “amazed” that a judge “on an island in the Pacific” could halt the president’s travel order.

After making such a Trump-like comment Sessions received a lesson from Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii).

She tweeted:

“Hey Jeff Sessions, this #IslandinthePacific has been the 50th state for going on 58 years.”

“And we won’t succumb to your dog whistle politics.”

She also pointed out that Sessions comments were “ignorant & dangerous.”

Sessions also received criticism from Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) who called him out for his disrespect.

“Mr. Attorney General: You voted for that judge,” he tweeted.

“And that island is called Oahu. It’s my home. Have some respect.”

Sessions made the disrespectful comments during an interview on “The Mark Levin Show.”

“I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the president of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and constitutional power,” Sessions said.
