After Senator Jeff Sessions', R-Al (C, 78%) nomination to the position of Attorney General was announced Friday, the nomination was immediately met with cries of "RACIST!" on social media.
Jeff Sessions was too racist to be a judge so Donald Trump just made him America's top cop. Any questions?— John Fugelsang (@JohnFugelsang) November 18, 2016
Jeff Sessions, a man deemed too racist to be a judge in the '80s, will be Attorney General. And there is no evidence he has changed at all— Dan Pfeiffer (@danpfeiffer) November 18, 2016
Just in case there is doubt, Jeff Sessions as AG means that a Trump administration will be exactly as racist as our worst fears indicated.— Ian Millhiser (@imillhiser) November 18, 2016
Self-described Republican strategist Ana Navarro (who voted for Hillary Clinton) had a small meltdown on Twitter over Sessions’ appointment.
Jeff Sessions, considered too racist to be a judge in 80's, is Trump's AG. Best to go back to sleep, America. I'll wake u up when it's over.— Ana Navarro (@ananavarro) November 18, 2016
Meet our new Attorney General. Then grab a brown paper bag to breath into. Actually white paper bag might be better. https://t.co/bXHKYJXXKF— Ana Navarro (@ananavarro) November 18, 2016
David DuKKKE is elated over Trump's appointments so far. Need I say more.....? https://t.co/EOcG3dG6eC— Ana Navarro (@ananavarro) November 18, 2016
Now, let’s be honest here, those throwing “-ist” terms around are lacking in the imagination department calling yet another Republican a “racist” for the zillionth time.
Friendly reminder that "principled" anti-Trump people are gloating over appointment of a racist https://t.co/8HrNOJh2UK

Friendly reminder that the left uses "racist" so much that they devalue the meaning of racism. https://t.co/LD9F7woh2Z

Here how it will go | Progressives: "Jeff Sessions is racist" Non-Progressives: "Sure he is." Progressives: "No seriously this time!!!"

While turning a blind eye to the Left’s own controversial figures.
You're going to see a lot of ppl who aren't at all concerned about Keith Ellison's past statements object to Jeff Sessions' past statements.
