Trump’s Blame For GOP Senate Loss Is Downright Bizarre; He May Be Getting Senile

There is never “the buck stops here” rhetoric from the current occupant of the White House. Instead, the former reality show star lashes out at others when he fails. Donald Trump’s endorsement of alleged child molester Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race probably didn’t help. Well, it helped Doug Jones who became the first Democrat to win a Senate seat in that deep-red state in a generation.

Trump is now blaming Jeff Sessions, who had to vacate that seat in order to serve as Trump’s pick for Attorney General.

According to the , Trump partly blames Sessions for the GOP loss in the recent Alabama Senate special election.

Kelly, in his first weekend on the job, called Sessions to assure him his position was safe. But the rift between Trump and Sessions still has not healed. Recently, Trump bemoaned the Republicans’ loss in a special election in Alabama and in part blamed Sessions, whose departure from the Senate to head to Justice necessitated the election.

Trump blames Sessions for Republicans losing the seat because the Alabama Senator had to vacate his seat to serve on Trump’s Cabinet. Got that? It’s hard to follow Trump’s line of “thinking” here since the so-called president somehow sees that as Sessions’ fault, even though Trump nominated him for the position.

Senator-elect Doug Jones (D-Ala.) defeated Roy Moore (R) in the election earlier this month. It’s been about two weeks now and Moore still hasn’t conceded the race.

Trump has lashed out at Sessions before, even though he was the first Senator to endorse his bid for the White House. God forgive me for defending the racist elf, but Trump can’t blame the person he nominated for vacating the Senate seat in order to serve on his cabinet. That’s not how it works. That’s not how any of this works. The only logical conclusion, given Trump’s outbursts, is that he’s either so stupid it hurts or dementia is kicking in.
