We can't be sure that Jeff Sessions knows that Hawaii is a state. Earlier today, the Attorney General, in a radio interview with Mark Levin, that he is “amazed” that a judge “sitting on an island in the Pacific” can issue an order that stops the President. That "island" is a state called Hawaii. And what Sessions is referring to is the Hawaiian judge who halted Trump's second Muslim ban back in March.
Sessions chosen phrasing attempted to undermine Hawaii's legitimacy as a state. Plus, as the Washington Post noted, Sessions actually voted to confirm the judge he's now dismissing. Well, this wouldn't be the first time Sessions said a bunch of illogical stuff in public. Remember when he tried to explain his contact with Russian officials? Here's what people are saying about Sessions' latest idiotic claim:

Sadly, the Sessions Hawaii comment might be the least worst thing he's done as AG.— Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) April 20, 2017
The man is THE most dangerous Cabinet member.

I only play the AG of the U.S. on tv, but I recognize your statehood and appreciate what you bring to the Union.
Mr. Attorney General: You voted for that judge. And that island is called Oahu. It's my home. Have some respect. https://t.co/sW9z3vqBqG— Brian Schatz (@brianschatz) April 20, 2017
sorry just tuning in are we having the long-overdue debate about the legitimacy of the hawaii annexation yet— Max Fisher (@Max_Fisher) April 20, 2017
Someone please tell Sessions that Hawaii is a state. An American in Hawaii is as American as one from Alabama. Or Indiana. https://t.co/kZb43EmCFp— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) April 20, 2017
So Jeff Sessions doesn't seem aware that Hawaii is a state.— Laurie Crosswell 🌞 (@lauriecrosswell) April 20, 2017
He also lied under oath and should be fired.
That island in the Pacific? It's Hawaii. Which is a state. In the United States. https://t.co/vXaiZqnsDX— Matt Viser (@mviser) April 20, 2017
