It sounds like somebody has been talking election strategy to the orange-tinted moron.

President Donald Trump said Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ job is safe at least until the midterm elections in November.
But the president also blasted Sessions for failing to rein in what he called an “illegal investigation” by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into whether Trump and his campaign aides colluded with Russians in the 2016 election.
“I just would love to have him do a great job,” Trump said Thursday in an Oval Office interview with Bloomberg News. Asked if he’d keep Sessions beyond November, he declined to comment. “I’d love to have him look at the other side,” he said, reiterating calls for Sessions’ Justice Department to investigate Democrat Hillary Clinton and the origins of the Russia probe.
“I do question what is Jeff doing,” Trump said.
Trump also had this to say about a Mueller subpoena:
“I’ll see what happens.”
“I view it differently. I view it as an illegal investigation” because “great scholars” have said that “there never should have been a special counsel,” the president said.
By “great scholars” Trump is literally talking about pundits on Fox News who agree with him that this is a witch hunt.
So, Trump is going to hold onto Sessions until after the midterms and then try to appoint an Attorney General to sabotage the Mueller investigation huh?
Well, that means we need to elect just as many damn Democrats as we possibly can to protect Mueller and his investigators and to make sure that we can see this whole thing to its ultimate conclusion.
