Sessions: “It’s all about me.”

In testimony before the Senate Intelligence committee, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III proved once again that the current administration is fully stocked with members of the “all about me” generation. After an opening statement that seemed to point to something higher – citing long service to the country, his testimony quickly descended into aggressive paranoia as questions were deflected as personal attacks, which they were not, as opposed to truth-seeking, which they were. This reflexive defensiveness made him seem as though he was trying to hide something, when a more cooperative approach surely would have built more credibility for his proclaimed ignorance. In an administration full of sour old men, AG Sessions seemed particularly so at this hearing.
