Attorney General Jeff Sessions is learning a lot about Hawaii after he referred to the 50th state as "an island in the Pacific", reported KDVR. Number two: "Judges routinely issue orders that apply nationwide", said Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat, adding that the remark was "really weird".
While defending the constitutionality of Trump's twice-failed Muslim travel ban, Sessions revealed he doesn't believe a Hawaii district judge can overrule the president. "Now U.S. Attorney General Sessions appears to dismiss a federal judge in Hawaii as just a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific", Chin said, in a news release.
Justice Department spokesperson Ian D. Prior clarified Sessions' remarks in a statement on Thursday.
"I wasn't diminishing the judge or the island of Hawaii, that handsome place".
So-called "Attorney General" Jeff Sessions is an incompetent boob and a petty jackass to boot. And that island is called Oahu.
Hawaii lawmakers criticize Sessions' island judge remarks
"#Fact: The U.S. state of Hawaii joined the Union in 1959", it tweeted.
Hirono also slammed Sessions in a statement: "The suggestion that being from Hawaii somehow disqualifies Judge Watson from performing his Constitutional duty is risky, ignorant, and prejudiced". Brian Schatz, a Democrat, responded on Twitter saying Sessions voted for Judge Watson and calling on the attorney general to show respect.
According to CNN, Justice Department spokesperson Ian D. Prior clarified Sessions' remarks in a statement: "Hawaii is, in fact, an island in the Pacific - a attractive one where the Attorney General's granddaughter was born", he said. It's a political mistake for Sessions to draw geographic lines (here's just one obvious line of attack) and a policy mistake insofar as it may annoy some judges to see the AG question the authority of one of their own just because of where he sits. "I think it's a fabulous place", he said.
"But I got to tell you - it's a point worth making that a single sitting judge out of 600, 700 district judges can issue an order stopping a presidential executive order that I believe is fully constitutional, created to protect the United States of America from terrorist attacks".
