Right-wing talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, whose popular syndicated show is broadcast daily on 1210 WPHT, defended Sessions as a “by-the-book” attorney general and legal mind, and said Trump’s continued swipes at him are “unseemly.” “It’s also a little bit discomforting, unseemly, for Trump to go after such a loyal supporter this way,” Limbaugh said on his radio show Monday, noting that Sessions has made it clear he doesn’t intend to resign.
“After Trump gave him the invitation to quit, Sessions doubled down on how much he loves the job, how much he’s going to continue to love the job, how he’s gonna keep performing the job while appropriate,” Limbaugh said.
