Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump, On Stage

Over the weekend I saw a headline about Senator Jeff Sessions joining Donald Trump on stage at Trump’s big event in Mobile, Alabama. Since Sessions has the best judgment on issues of anyone in Washington, I was surprised. I wondered: is it possible that Jeff Sessions has endorsed Donald Trump?

The answer is no. He hasn’t. Rather, Sessions was summoned to the podium by Trump–rather rudely, some would say–and spent about one minute welcoming Trump to his home town and praising Trump’s immigration plan. Sessions took off Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hat after about two seconds. Here is the video:

In the past, I don’t believe Sessions has made a practice of endorsing Republican presidential candidates. He likely won’t endorse a candidate this year, but if he does, I don’t expect it to be Donald Trump.
