Mr. Sessions would later tell associates that the demeaning way the president addressed him was the most humiliating experience in decades of public life.

...

His allies said that despite the humiliation, the attorney general has stayed in the job because he sees a "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunity as the nation's top law enforcement official to toughen the country's immigration policies.


The guy is willing to debase himself on the largest possible stage to keep America white.

I also read it that he was crying. They mentioned from multiple sources that he was "very emotional." I read that as "crying." He's willing to suffer serious mental abuse, not just embarrassment on the national stage.

This guy was rejected from a lifetime federal judgeship after Senators called him racist. That was less humiliating than being berated by the president. I think that tells you something about the character of them both.

There are shelters, Mr. Sessions. There are people who can help. You don't have to stay with him. You can get free.

FortyHams: He still gets horny thinking about it.


Yeah, my theory is he stays around because he's into some really kinky sub shiat he can only get in DC. Nothing wrong with that, mind you, except he doesn't want anyone else to get any.
 
2017-09-14 08:54:30 PM  
I don't care about Jeff Sessions. He's a good-for-nothing, racist asshole and I hope he regrets every one of his shiatty life choices up to this point every minute he's awake.

But, these reports of Trump's abusive outbursts do make me cringe a bit for people who have stayed inside the White House to try and maintain some semblance of a firewall between Trump's obviously worsening dementia and the republic.

I had a boss like that. The guy was insane. He needed one person to yell at, and for the first year, it wasn't me. He was actually nice as fark, but he'd just rip into his second in command during weekly team meetings, right in front of everyone(He was in Chicago, I live in Salt Lake, so this was all done over the phone) . After that guy got laid off, it was the IT Manager, until that guy got laid off, then, like a light switch was flipped, I was the target. The guy would sit on the phone and scream at me for something for half an hour or so, hang up, and call me back about 5 minutes later to yell at me for doing whatever I did to require him to yell at me in the first place, thereby wasting his time. Those little gems lasted 15 minutes or so. People would tell me that they could hear him yelling all of the way down the hall. By the time the whole farking thing  was over, I couldn't even remember what he'd called to yell at me for in the first place.

I imagine it's what working for Trump is like.

Hey...yeah you...J. Sesh, let's chat:

Ok J-Roc, I want to highlight a few things.
First off, the elephant in the room.  This guy....this guy...amiright?  You don't like'em...I don't like'em either.  See! Common ground

Secondly, I realize a life of hatred and anger...and maybe feelings you never quite understood or accepted...has been difficult. But...for once in  your bigoted miserable existence...just do the right thing that ALSO happens to be the thing you want to do. Just TALK.  Get it ALL out, every last bit to have this guy thrown behind bars for the rest of his life.

You can go on living your hateful life knowing that this one time, you did something actually beneficial with your vitriol. You did a good thing.  People, actual people that don't owe you money, you owe money to, etc., will thank you!

/Just do it.

I had a boss who tried that shiat on me the day I told him I was going to take another job. Started literally screaming, calling me a traitor and thief (College had paid for some training as their charters mandate in the UK) and they would sue me to stop me leaving, and I would have to repay thousands of pounds of wages and all money spent on training. Began calling random passing people over to demand they tell me he was right (most pretended not to hear him)

I restrained myself from laughter or responding in kind.

fark that, Sessions is probably the only person I despise more the Trump.  The guy is a piece of garbage who actually believes he's superior to everyone else, Trump thinks the same way, but he has the decency to base is on his wealth and not his skin color.  So I say, have at it Trump, Sessions is never going to resign because he doesn't want to lose his power of massive discrimination.  So constantly insult him, whenever the media gets on your case, call a meeting and just berate Sessions for 15 minutes, then just carry on.  It will do wonders for everyone.

If those people cared about the republic they would be coming forward with what they know to get him out of office.

Sorry, I'm beyond giving the benefit of the doubt to anyone at this point.  Wasn't it just a few weeks ago we heard the same thing about Kelly? Priebus? Last week about the Turtle?  Nope, they're not part of the solution, they're part of the problem.

"History was full of the bones of good men who'd followed bad orders in the hope that they could soften the blow. Oh, yes, there were worse things they could do, but most of them began right where they started following bad orders."

We used to play a great game called Staff Meeting. Every time the boss repeated himself, we all drank. Eveey time he mentioned you by name,  you chugged.

// miss the hell out of that job
/// not the staff meetings, though. I don't remember much of those

Presented for your approval: A small man with evil in his heart gets his dream job, only to be humiliated by an even smaller man with no heart and stupid in his brain. An inarticulate buffoon who fails to see the other man's loyalty as anything else but weakness.

There's a signpost up ahead. Your next stop: the Trump Presidency.

The books that come out of this administration are going to be outstanding.

On another note, if you capture a leprechaun and then verbally abuse him, does he still have to take you to his pot of gold?
 
2017-09-14 09:35:09 PM  
The best Trump's got is "weak" for an insult?  Those are the big guns he brings out?  For a New Yorker I'd have thought he would have some creativity, a command of vulgarity.  Hell, Napoleon, not exactly one known for the elegant turn of phrase, was at least able to call Tallyrand "a shiat in a silk stocking."  What Trump is bringing is just so low energy.

Fortunately, I'll never have to work in a Presidential administration - but I would like to think if I had a boss who screamed at me, then told me to resign, I'd demand to be fired.

His racism is greater to him than his self. He sees his lack of humanity as a higher purpose.

I once had a boss threaten to replace me with a robot in a morning kick off meeting with department heads. This wasn't just something that he said in passing or in the heat of the moment he had a brochure for the robot I wanted.

/I reminded him last time he tried to automate me he shut down Chrysler for 10 hrs, which cost us a couple million.

Just a reminder: this isn't because Jeff Sessions was caught committing perjury. This isn't even because of him doubling down on horribly regressive policies that have never worked! This is because Jeff wouldn't help Trump completely and blatantly block the Russia investigation.

My boss tends to get carried away and make vaguely innapropriate or even culturally insensitive jokes in meetings. I spend time practicing not visibly wincing.

This week we have a meeting with a major South Korean customer. I may have to excuse myself from that one.

I once had a boss who only flew himself to the office every three weeks. Our office manager, who was paraplegic, ran the show.

Said boss once farted loudly while walking by her, essentially gassing her face.

She said, "I wish that bastard would just crash his plane and die."

Three weeks later, bingo.

On the other hand, wouldn't it be nice if we had a president that didn't behave like this to the attorney general of the United States?
