U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions referred to a Hawaiian judge as “sitting on an island in the Pacific,” raising the ire of liberals and moderates who are fans of the Aloha State.
Sessions’ comment occurred on Tuesday’s edition of The Mark Levin Show.
While discussing the efforts of Judge Derrick Watson of Hawaii to block President Trump‘s temporary ban on travel to the United States from countries rife with Islamic terrorists, Sessions was dismissive.
“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 told Levin.
Judge Watson has stated that the travel-restriction order unfairly targets Muslims.
Levin, not a supporter of President Trump throughout the campaign, has rallied to the Administration’s side in recent weeks, once going on Fox News to give a devastating interview about former President Obama’s spy operation against political opponents…namely Trump himself.
