Friday's HOT MIC
Debra: Regarding Sessions, it seems like the default reflex is always to assume that "all the best people" Trump put in place are openly defying him. There are other possibilities, right?
- They could be acting at Trump's behest (so in your example, Sessions could just be carrying out Trump's orders) or
- The administration is in such turmoil that Trump is unable to manage his team effectively. They don't know what he wants them to do so they can't do it. Or he's sending mixed messages about policy objectives.
Sessions is nothing if not a true believer in Trumpism. It seems unlikely to me that he would go rogue and change horses midstream.
