Two U.S. Senators of Hawaii and other politicians on Thursday slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions over his remarks about a federal judge who halted President Donald Trump's revised travel ban last month. Richard Blumenthal said Friday, speaking on CNN's "New Day".
"Hawaii is, in fact, an island in the Pacific - a handsome one where the Attorney General's granddaughter was born", Prior said. Number two: "Judges routinely issue orders that apply nationwide", said Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat, adding that the remark was "really freakish".
We are confident that the president will prevail on appeal and particularly in the Supreme Court, if not the Ninth Circuit.
As one of the most powerful law enforcement officials in the nation, Sessions said in a radio interview Wednesday that he was "really amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order" that stopped President Trump's executive order.
"Hawaii is, in fact, an island in the Pacific - a handsome one where the Attorney General's granddaughter was born", spokesman Ian D. Prior told CNN.
We're assuming Jeff Sessions knows basic USA history and geography, so maybe there's something else going on here. And that island is called Oahu.

In the build-up to Rashford's goal, Herrera blocked with his hand a pass from Nemanja Matic but the infringement wasn't picked up. Thibaut Courtois picked up an injury on an National Basketball Association shoot in the days preceding the match at Old Trafford.
"I think it's a fabulous place, I have a granddaughter born there", Sessions said.
Hawaii's Attorney General Doug Chin criticized these remarks.
He said: "President Trump previously called a federal judge in California a so-called judge". It's a political mistake for Sessions to draw geographic lines (here's just one obvious line of attack) and a policy mistake insofar as it may annoy some judges to see the AG question the authority of one of their own just because of where he sits.
"Our Constitution created a separation of powers in the United States for a reason".
Douglas Chin, Hawaii's attorney general, said in a statement it was disappointing Sessions doesn't acknowledge that the federal courts are "co-equal partners with Congress and the president".
