Trump hasn't been pleased with Jeff Sessions since the attorney general recused himself from the Russia investigation last year, and this morning he told Hill.TV, "I don't have an attorney general. It's very sad."
Needless to say, Trump, in his usual tantrum style, was blurting out alternative facts that he then had to take back. Later in the morning, he admitted that indeed, he did have an attorney general. According to NBC News:
Speaking to reporters on the White House South Lawn later Wednesday morning, the president acknowledged Sessions' existence — but reiterated how displeased he is with the nation's top law enforcement officer.
"I'm disappointed in the attorney general for numerous reasons. But we have an attorney general. I'm disappointed in the attorney general for many reasons," Trump said...
"I'm so sad over Jeff Sessions because he came to me. He was the first Senator that endorsed me. And he wanted to be Attorney General, and I didn't see it,” he said. Trump also made clear that he thought Sessions performed poorly during his Senate confirmation hearings, saying his answers were "confusing."
