As confirmation hearings got underway Tuesday for Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), President-elect Donald Trump's pick for attorney general, widespread protests continued throughout the country, on social media, and within the chambers of Capitol Hill.
Sessions is the perfect poster boy for the Trump administration. Trump is so stupid he does not realize the Wall of Resistance coming his way . This has been seen since the American Revolution. Maintaining a democracy is not easy.
The so-called "Moderate" Senator Susan Collins of Maine is firmly behind Sessions.
How is the world did anyone ever consider her "Moderate"?
One might suppose that Trump's model of a good lawyer is his mentor Roy Cohn. Cohn was a despised and unethical person who served on the prosecution of the Rosenbergs and as a assistant to Joseph McCarthy. Like Trump, he liked to be the center of attention. These are winner take all people who care less about what others think and, I think, believe democracy is an inconvenient institution which they must subvert in any way possible.
