Keebler Elf: Hawaii's "fabulous," wasn't "criticizing the judge or the island"...#MAGA! #BuyIvanka!



(CNN)Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Friday he was not disrespecting Hawaii or a judge in the state when he said he was "amazed" that the official was able to block President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban halting immigration from several majority Muslim countries.

"I wasn't criticizing the judge or the island," he told CNN's Kate Bolduan on "At This Hour." "I think it's a fabulous place and had a granddaughter born there."

"But I got to tell you -- it's a point worth making that a single sitting judge out of 600, 700 district judges can issue an order stopping a presidential executive order that I believe is fully constitutional, designed to protect the United States of America from terrorist attacks."

He added, "I was just raising the point of that issue of a single judge taking such a dramatic action and the impact it can have."

1. As the Attorney General of the United States, he ought to know better

than to say something as stupid as "I was just raising the point of that issue of a single judge taking such a dramatic action and the impact it can have." That's what federal judges do. It's their job, and it's how the law works. The reason one judge in one federal district can make a decision about a particular law that affects all of the districts is so the law isn't applied or interpreted in a piecemeal way throughout the country. If you don't like the decision you appeal it. Dumbass.

2. he again referred to it as an island instead of as a state.

 

Note: Most Hawaiians do not live on the island of Hawaii, they live on Oahu.

8. Lots of my best friends visit Hawai'i! I even had a grand daughter born there!

Do you know how difficult it is to find a KKK meeting in Hawai'i to get your grand daughter christened?

4. A single SCOTUS judge made all the difference last night in decision to execute a man last night.

So yeah, a single judge can have a big impact.

5. Yes, our system is set up so that ONE PERSON (a judge)

can block an executive order issued by ONE PERSON (the president).

I see no problem. Do you?

11. What an asshat

To have the sitting AG say something so stunningly ignorant is embarrassing.

Either that or he continues to troll us as if no one outside of trumpland knows that our legal system is actually structured to work the way it did.

Jeff is every inept and should surrender his law license or a liar and a troll and embarrassing his supposed profession.
