"Very unwise if @realDonaldTrump is criticizing Sessions’ accent and legal pedigree—unless POTUS wants to offend his most ardent ‘Bama supporters," Ingraham tweeted.

Ingraham's comments came a day after Politico reported that Trump has told aides that he doesn't like the former Alabama senator's Southern accent or the fact that Sessions doesn't have a degree from an Ivy League school.


The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.
