Open Thread: Sessions' Confirmation Hearing

Senator Jeff Sessions, who is Donald Trump's terrible, terrible nominee for U.S. Attorney General, is sitting for his confirmation hearing right now. As expected, it is going terribly! For us, that is. In the sense that he is being revealed to be catastrophically unfit to serve as Attorney General, and yet will probably be confirmed anyway.

Still, these hearings are valuable precisely because of that exposure, which lays important groundwork for resistance moving forward.

Anyway. Here's a thread to discuss the goings-on at the hearing today.
