Trump Attorney General Jeff Sessions Doesn’t Realize Hawaii Is a State


Hey, Jeff Sessions: Hawaii is a state.

Well, this one must be a little embarrassing for Trump.

USA Today reports that Trump’s recently confirmed Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, made some comments this week that suggest he was unaware that Hawaii is actually a state.

Sessions was interviewing on the Mark Levin Show when he began to criticize the Federal Judge who recently blocked Trump’s second attempt at a travel ban from six Muslim-majority countries:

“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.”

The backlash was swift and powerful, and included responses from both U.S. Senators from the State of Hawaii, Mazie Hirono and Brian Schatz – both Democrats.
