    Doesn't look like it was a real threat, thank goodness. But honestly, with the Trumps making so many enemies.....

    I could be wrong, but is this Jeff Sessions claiming that the heritage of justice is strictly an Anglo-American one? Sheriffs have existed far before the Americas were discovered as far as I know. Of course this could be him taking shots at Blazing Saddles for all I know, or just everyday racism. Pick your poison.

    Usually, it's like "the country was broken and needs extreme measure to fix it."

    Plus everything from the Trump defense book: Fake news, he's telling it like it is, locker room talk, yadda yadda

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions, while speaking before the National Sheriff's Organization, went full racist:

    "The office of Sheriff is a critical part of the Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement. We must never erode this historic office.”

    I can only imagine that people hated the drug-related crime so much that that accounts for Duterte's continued support. I heard a segment on NPR on the situation over there.

    It's like he can't let himself say the word Heritage without adding Anglo-American like a good ol' countryfied bigot.

    Do you guys argue about politics with family on Facebook.

    Normally, if a friend posts something dumb as hell, I have no problem commenting on it, but I bite my tongue when family members post dumb shit.

    One of them in particular...it's just...she is like the stereotype of the uninformed Trump supporter that falls for (and shares) every ridiculous meme she sees.

    I’m curious how Sessions is going to handle the PR fallout from that, cause that’s quite the red flag (for me anyways).

    Depends on two factors for me. The first is whether you value having them in your lives. If yes, the second is how emotionally fragile are they. Knowing how someone is likely to react goes a long way.
