The Session On Sessions
While Donald Trump will not be inaugurated until January 20, Congress started their session (if you'll forgive the pun) on January 3. This includes starting the confirmation hearings on some of Trump's nominees, such as current Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) for Attorney General. In what has to be a historically rare occurrence, his fellow Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) will testify against him, even though at one time, he regarded Sessions more favorably. Some other black Americans have come out in favor of Sessions. Meanwhile, in a move which merits the "Stupid People" label, an MTV writer accused Sessions of stealing a little Asian girl from Toys "R" Us. The girl is actually his granddaughter.
