U.S. Attorney General doesn’t think Hawaii should be state?

    Where does it say that Jeff Sessions does not think Hawai’i should be a state?
    It’s obvious he is wondering how someone at the state level could block the president.

  • He is implying that Hawaii is somehow of a lesser status than other states because it is just “an island in the Pacific” — would he be “amazed” that a judge could block the president if that judge was in California or New York, rather than “an island in the Pacific”?
