If there are any doubts remaining in the progressive mind about just how fundamentally ruthless and ideologically barbaric members of the Trump Administration are, Sessions’s refusal to resign should set such doubts to rest. These are stone-cold diabolical people, every last damned one of them. Morals and ethics are punchlines to their jokes.And their voters are egging them on. No amount of progressive appeasement is going to change them.
Trump and Sessions long ago declared unholy war on all things progressive, all things Democratic, all things rational and reasonable. There has indeed been a pivot in the Trump Administration. That pivot is the point where they became even worse.
