After a big-ass backlash, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from any investigation into charges that Russia meddled in the 2016 election. Even some Republicans said that he should recuse himself following revelations of Sessions’ meetings with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. during the campaign.

Trump, though, wanted a staunch loyalist as an Attorney General even if it put that individual’s reputation on the line. Sessions was the first sitting U.S. senator to endorse Trump’s presidential bid, but the former frozen steak salesman has been lashing out at his former AG ever since he recused himself.

Politico reported that Sessions finished well short of a majority in his Alabama Senate primary and now faces a runoff against former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville. Trump, of course, just had to respond while calling bashing his former attorney general over his lack of “loyalty” to the president. Trump falsely asserted lied and said that Sessions recused himself on his first day in office.

Trump got called out.

Trump tweeting that “loyalty gets appointed” is a jaw-dropping admission. Protesters took to the streets when Trump fired Sessions, knowing that the shitstain of a president is trying to obstruct justice. Republicans who were all-in for Sessions as Attorney General have been silent over Trump’s attacks because they are afraid of their president. It’s way past time for Republicans to grow some balls or ovaries.
