'Pissed-Off' Jeff Sessions Won't Give 'Insane' Trump the Satisfaction of Quitting: Report

The Right Wing

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who now seemingly gets insulted by President Donald Trump on a near-daily basis, is reportedly “pissed off” about his situation — but he’s not going to quit anytime soon.

Sources tell the Daily Beast that Sessions is getting fed up with Trump’s regular attacks on his work — including one on Tuesday morning in which the president said his attorney general had taken a “VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes.”

“Sessions is totally pissed off about it,” one ally of the attorney general told the Daily Beast. “It’s beyond insane. It’s cruel and it’s insane and it’s stupid.”

Sessions’ allies also say, however, that the embattled attorney general has no plans to voluntarily resign — instead, he will call Trump’s bluff and essentially dare the president to fire him.

“He’s not going anywhere,” another Sessions ally told the publication. “He is not going to resign. What he is accomplishing is way too important to the country.”

Another White House official told the Daily Beast that Sessions is going to try to “ride out the storm,” as top White House political strategist Steve Bannon once did when he got on Trump’s bad side after getting into regular fights with Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner.
