President-elect Donald Trump has been hard at work building his cabinet for when he takes office, and his latest appointment really has some people on the left quite bothered. Then again, what doesn’t bother them?
Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions was one of Trump’s first supporters in Congress and he’s been a fierce advocate for the billionaire ever since. Being one to reward loyalty, Trump decided he was going to give Sen. Sessions a position with his new administration, and while most people will think it’s a smart move, the left is already throwing a fit.
Just this morning, Trump announced that Sen. Sessions will be replacing political hack Loretta Lynch as the nation’s attorney general in a move that’s in line with his campaign promise to restore law and order.

Of course, as rumors were floating about the choice, leftist whiners came out of the shadows to blow their dog whistle over the senator. You’ll never in a million years guess what label they immediately attached to him…
A proud racist!

#JeffSessions he is a known racist. Even Repubs know this. He might as well show up in a hood for hearings. At least that would be honest.

Are you tired of hearing that word yet? These people are like the seagulls in Finding Nemo that can only say the word “mine,” except they say “racist” instead…seriously.
If you think I’m joking, check out what they had to say about Gen. Michael Flynn, who was named Trump’s national security adviser.
Flynn – Trump's new NSA – has been fooled by fake news, believes conspiracy theories, & tweeted anti-Semitic and racist remarks. Great pick!

Trump appoints Flynn NSA ,agitator, racist and Sessions AG, exposed as racist in 80's…. Alt-Right ideology forming…Gestapo tactics ahead

Meanwhile, back in reality, the fact of the matter is that Sessions and Flynn are both excellent choices for Trump’s team. Both men have strong character, good judgement, and possess the one quality that’s been lacking from the White House for the past eight years – integrity.
How nice it’s going to be to see that again…
