Jeff Sessions Is Living His Best Confederate Life |The Daily Show


From the day
Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation, President Trump
has been accusing him and abusing him harder
than Popeye abuses steroids. Spinach, my ass. And as time has gone on, Trump’s attacks on his attorney
general have only gotten worse. I am disappointed
in the attorney general. He should not have
recused himself. He made what I consider to be a very terrible mistake
for the country. NEWSWOMAN: The president
has been scathing, calling Sessions “beleaguered,”
and “weak.” He privately calls
Jeff Sessions Mr. Magoo. NEWSMAN: A source close to
the president telling NBC News, Mr. Trump is “constantly
bashing Sessions in private” for recusing himself
from the Russia inquiry, that he simply “can’t get
Sessions out of his mind.” (like Trump): That’s right,
I can’t get him out of my mind. Every little thing I do,
he’s on my mind. He’s on my mind.
Hey, every little thing I do, the way I’ve been lately, he’s driving me crazy. -(cheering, applause)
-Round and round I go. Now, anybody else who had
to deal with this type of abuse would probably just say,
“You know what, screw this, “I don’t need to deal
with harassment, I’m gonna work at Fox.” -(laughter)
-But Sessions… Sessions lets it roll
off his back, because while Trump
rants and raves, Sessions is over
at the Justice Department living his best
Confederate life. Look at everything he’s doing
behind the scenes. He’s been working to defund
sanctuary cities. He’s backing lawsuits
against Obamacare. He personally supports
purging voter rolls. And he’s trying to get
more people the death penalty. Jeff Sessions is busier
than Kevin Hart, and somehow even shorter. (laughter) And Sessions… and Sessions is
just getting started. In fact, this week
he dropped another new project. Attorney General Jeff Sessions
announcing today the Justice Department
is creating a religious liberty task force, saying Western culture
has become less hospitable to people of faith. A dangerous movement, undetected by many, but real, is now challenging and eroding
our great tradition of religious freedom. It must be confronted,
intellectually and politically, uh, and defeated. (like Sessions):
That’s right, we want to protect religious people’s rights to infringe
on other people’s rights. That’s what we need. To be honest, I don’t know what a religious
liberty task force is… but the name sounds
a lot like something from one of those
cheesy 1980s TV shows. NARRATOR:
America is in a moral crisis, but now, help is on the way. Today I’m announcing
our next step, the Religious Liberty
Task Force… Task Force, Task Force… ♪ ♪ Jesus Christ. No. RoboChrist. RoboChrist patrols the streets, making the country safe
for the Christian right. Our new wedding cake
looks great. Whoa, whoa.
Wh-What are you doing? ROBOCHRIST:
No, homo. Help! I’m being attacked
by atheists! -Happy holidays.
-Happy holidays. -WOMAN: Stop it! Stop it!
-Say it! -Say it!
-I… God bless. Aah…! Oh, shit. ♪ ♪ -Oh, thank you so much,
RoboChrist. -Let us pray. You know, actually running
a little bit late. Let… us… pray. Okay…
