Poor Jeff Sessions is getting picked on again.

“I don’t have an attorney general. It’s very sad. I’m not happy at the border, I’m not happy with numerous things, not just this,” President Donald Trump said in an interview on HillTV. “I’m very disappointed in Jeff. Very disappointed.”

The remarks follow middle school-style slights like the time the president at a cabinet meeting in June praised everyone at the table except Sessions. Or when he tweeted that Sessions is “scared stiff and missing in action,” or said Sessions “never took control of the Justice Department,” or blasted him for indicting two GOP congressmen. (“Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff.”)

It’s almost enough to make you feel sorry for the man.
