During an appearance on ABC’s This Week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Sunday appeared to dismiss criticism over his comments referring to the state of Hawaii as “an island in the Pacific.”
Here was his original quote:
“I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the President of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and Constitutional power.”
Here is his latest response to that quote:
“They filed a lawsuit in Hawaii and the first decision on the new executive order came out of Hawaii,” Sessions told host George Stephanopoulos.
Stephanopoulos interrupted Sessions, asking: “Why not just call it the state of Hawaii?”
“Nobody has a sense of humor any more,” Sessions said in response.
A sense of humor? You weren’t telling a joke, you dipshit.
