Laura Ingraham: ‘Very unwise’ if Trump is criticizing Sessions’s accent, education

Fox News host Laura Ingraham said Thursday that if President Trump was criticizing Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s accent and education background it would likely antagonize some of the president’s most loyal supporters in Alabama.

“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.

Trump has had an increasingly contentious relationship with Sessions, stemming mostly from the attorney general’s decision to recuse himself from overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
