Babyman fires his house elf

Fired attorney general Jeff Sessions in happier times.

This happened today:


On Wednesday afternoon, President Trump gave a post-election press conference in the White House’s East Room, taking questions from reporters for an hour and a half, offering his thoughts about the incoming Democratic majority in the House, the results of various Senate and gubernatorial races, his war with the press, Oprah Winfrey, immigration, infrastructure. “Can you give us clarity, sir, on your thinking, currently, now, after the midterms, about your Attorney General and your Deputy Attorney General?” a reporter asked at one point. “Do they have long-term job security?” It had long been rumored that Trump would rid himself of his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, after the midterms—the two were once close political allies, but Trump has never forgiven Sessions for recusing himself from overseeing the Russia probe. When faced with this point-blank question, though, Trump demurred. “I’d rather answer that at a little bit different time,” he said. “We’re looking at a lot of different things.”

A little bit different time turned out to be not three hours later. “We are pleased to announce that Matthew G. Whitaker, Chief of Staff to Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice, will become our new Acting Attorney General of the United States. He will serve our Country well….,” Trump announced, on Twitter, later Wednesday afternoon. “….We thank Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his service, and wish him well! A permanent replacement will be nominated at a later date.” Sessions’s resignation letter soon became public, which made clear that he had resigned at Trump’s request—effectively, he’d been fired.

Yep. Babyman gave him the sock.
