Tucker Carlson: ‘Jeff Sessions was the single-most impressive member of the Senate’
Wednesday on Huntsville radio’s WVNN, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson, author of “Ship of Fools,” praised Alabama native Jeff Sessions, who served two decades in the U.S. Senate before becoming U.S. attorney general for President Donald Trump.
Late in 2018, after a tumultuous tenure as attorney general, Sessions left the Department of Justice.
When asked if there were any Democratic or Republican politicians that he thought were coming up with solutions to improve the lot of the middle class, Carlson immediately named Sessions.
Carlson described Alabama’s former U.S. senator as “totally sincere,” and as “the single-most impressive member of the Senate.”
“You know, the guy who always impressed me most with his sincerity and thoughtfulness and deep personal integrity – and the degree to which he meant it, he wasn’t a phony at all, he was totally sincere – I know him well, actually was a senator from Alabama called Jeff Sessions, who made the mistake of becoming attorney general and was totally attacked and discredited – not entirely, but mostly unfairly I thought,” Carlson said on Thursday’s “The Jeff Poor Show.” “But it sort of obscured the fact that Sessions was Trump long before Trump.”
“Sessions really understood what had gone wrong with the country’s economy with the attitudes of its ruling class,” he added. “Jeff Sessions was the single-most impressive member of the Senate I always thought, and I still think that.”
