#ManafortMonday: Trump To Lunch With Jeff Sessions

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Monday is scheduled to have lunch with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, just hours after Trump’s former campaign chairman was indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller. Sessions was invited to join Trump’s weekly lunch with Vice President Pence, which is closed to press coverage.

It’s likely Trump will raise the indictment of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, which represents a significant escalation of the special counsel probe that has loomed over his presidency for months.

The president in the past has criticized Sessions for his handling of the Russia investigation, blaming his decision to recuse himself for Mueller’s appointment.

  • bkmn

    I’ve never seen the verb ‘lunch’ used to say YELL before.

    • David Walker

      “DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!1!!”

    • 5moreminutes*imtired

      They meant launch. Anything to distract their minions….

  • Tawreos

    I wonder which topic will get more discussion time, pardon of Manafort or firing Mueller?

    • Todd20036

      Well that burger emoji crisis that Fox is covering seems to be a weighty topic.

      • BJORN RAGNVALDR

        Don’t forget the Halloween candy survey. It’s a busy news day over there. All the news we use to deflect.

        • minidriver

          Candy Corn: Communist Conspiracy?

  • crewman

    The Attorney General should have a very clear separation between himself and the President, especially at a time like this.

    • Tawreos

      In an ethical administration he would.

  • Sashineb
    • The_Wretched

      We call that 2 degrees of separation.

  • Gene Perry

    Can you say “conflict of interest”? If Sessions comes out from lunch and fires Mueller, there will be hell to pay!

    • pj

      even trump isnt that stupid.

      • Boreal

        Hold tRump’s beer.

      • Dreaming Vertebrate

        Don’t count on it.
        The depths of his stupidity have never been fully plumbed.

        • pj

          stand by….his blaming others will go into overdrive now.

          • minidriver

            He’ll accuse Hillary of actually being Hitler as she had to change her name because Donny owns the copyright to the letter T. Alex Jones will have a 3 hour rant on how the Germans used cryogenics after performing a sex change on Adolf to send her forward in time.

          • Uncle Mark

            The shitgibbon is going to make Alex Jones seem centered, factual, and serene by comparison

        • David L. Caster

          Black holes are like that.

      • Tawreos

        LMAO, that’s a good one!

      • Todd20036

        I REALLY disagree with that statement.

      • Rebecca Gardner

        You’ve clearly never met Trump in person. He’s really really really fucking stupid.

      • JoyZeeBoy

        Nixon was

        • Todd20036

          Nixon at least knew to keep his mouth shut

          • Tawreos

            Well, except for ~18 minutes of a recorded conversation.

          • David Walker

            I thought Rose Mary was quite convincing with her explanation, although she may have stretched the truth a bit.

          • TuuxKabin

            She was in for the home stretch.

          • Joe in PA

            I see what you did there.

        • thatotherjean

          Nixon wasn’t stupid; he was just a crook in the White House. TRUMP is impossibly stupid.

      • whollyfool

        Where’s Ross? He used to work for DT and i think he would disagree.

      • Rex

        Trump IS stupid.
        Question is, is he suicidal?

        • David Walker

          Aside from Vanka, does anybody care?

      • Lizard

        Yeah, he is. Sessions, however, is not. He’s a bigoted, evil little elf, but he should know better.

        • thatotherjean

          He did. That’s why he recused himself in the first place. Unless he’s caught the stupid from Trump, he’ll quit before he fires Mueller.

      • Bluto

        Yes he is.

      • Steven Jaeger

        I find the public persona is one of very little wit, minimal maturation, and extremely viscious behavior. I feel the private persona is even more disgusting, shriveled, and rotten to the core.

    • Todd20036

      There already is a hell toupee.

      • Tawreos

        Is that what Donny’s model is called?

      • BJORN RAGNVALDR

        Comically Bewigged.

        • David Walker

          Bewigged, bothered, and bewildered.

          • FancyThat

            A simpering, whimpering childish man…

      • Marty Pavelka

        What’s that on your head? A WIG!

    • GayOldLady

      Sessions is recused and he can’t fire Mueller, only Rosenstein can fire Mueller. What we might see is Sessions fired and replaced by someone favorable to Trump who will fire Mueller.

      • The_Wretched

        Sessions might “forget” to stay recused. He has breached that line a little.

        • Ragnar Lothbrok

          Like that Nunes fellow

      • Or Sessions might fire Rosenstein if the next in line (Rachel Brand) is more pliable.

        • GayOldLady

          That could happen! And it it does all hell will break loose in this country.

    • MichaelJ

      No there won’t if Republicans in Congress don’t do anything about the obstruction of justice.

    • TuuxKabin

      Then we hit the streets tomorrow, unless we can’t contain ourselves.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    Sounds like the Evil Keebler Elf will be served some humble pie.
    Two-Scoops Liddle’ Donnie: It’s all your fault!! No ice cream for you!

  • Tawreos

    If I was Sessions I would find a way to wear a wire to lunch, if for no other reason than to protect my own ass.

  • AtticusP

    It’s so easy for me to picture little Jeff Sessions in the middle of the table with an apple in his mouth.

    I guess it’s just wishful thinking on my part.

    • djcoastermark

      Though a great plot for a horror movie, Apple Sessions visions caused me to lose my appetite.

    • David Walker

      I’d think weasel isn’t that tasty…apple or not.

      • Chicago joe

        Would imagine it to be way too greasy and stringy and tough.

        Trump is so ignorant he thinks Mueller is going to lay all of his cards on the table with the 1st Indictment and charges? NOPE, it’s not gonna happen. You’re going to have to read the tea leaves Donnie.

      • GayOldLady

        Just like he hired Flynn and Flynn Jr and Carter Page. And don’t forget Trump’s business partner, Felix Sater who I think will be one of the sleepers in revealing Trump’s possible Russian money laundering schemes.

        • worstcultever

          Sater is KEY

          I want to see him pull out a crucial piece of the Jenga Treason Tower and send it clattering to the floor

          And then be behind bars himself

          This is a good start, but ‘m waiting to see the indictment of the Mercers and other campaign officials (not leaving out Don, Jr.) for receiving and then using the stolen DNC data to target voters in the three states that put Der Herr over the top in the EC. That’s when he will be unmasked as an illegitimate President, one put in office by a criminal conspiracy.

      trump was fine with letting the hilliary email story go after the election. he’s only resurrecting it now to deflect from the mueller investigation.

    Sessions is a typical Alabama bigot. He’s a more polished version of Roy Moore — they have similar views on LGBT. I donate every week to Doug Jones, Moore’s opponent in the December election. If Moore’s elected he’ll introduce anti-gay bills and probably end up with GOP co-sponsors like fascist Ted Cruz, who’s endorsed Moore. If Jones wins — and he’d better — I hope Sessions has a fatal heart attack.
