President elect Donald Trump is still picking his cabinet members, and as he tweeted on Tuesday, he is the only one who knows who the finalists are (because, in his mind, it's still a beauty contest, but for awfulness instead of looks). It's been revealed that his choice for attorney general is Jeff Sessions, a man too racist to be a federal judge. And not only is the man horrifically racist, he's sexist, too (surprise!).
Sessions, a Republican congressman from Alabama, endorsed Trump in February, and then became a major advisor in Trump's campaign. He stood by Trump when the Access Hollywood tape was leaked (in which Trump can be heard saying that he "grabbed" women "by the pussy"), but that makes sense, because apparently he doesn't think that's actually sexual assault.
In October, Sessions told The Weekly Standard,
SESSIONS: This was very improper language, and he's acknowledged that.
TWS: But beyond the language, would you characterize the behavior described in that [video] as sexual assault if that behavior actually took place?
SESSIONS: I don't characterize that as sexual assault. I think that's a stretch. I don't know what he meant—
TWS: So if you grab a woman by the genitals, that's not sexual assault?
SESSIONS: I don't know. It's not clear that he—how that would occur.
Hmm. Sounds like Sessions can't figure out how a man could possibly forcibly touch a woman's vagina. Maybe he's not aware how the female body works, and thinks women just keep their vaginas deep inside their lungs or something. This man is going to make a wonderful attorney general.
