â€śI really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the president of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and constitutional power,â€ť Mr. Sessions said this week in an interview
on â€śThe Mark Levin Show,â€ť a conservative talk radio program.
Is there something about an island that renders less meaningful an order from a judge than, say Atlanta?
The Justice Dept. "clarification":
â€śHawaii is, in fact, an island in the Pacific â€” a beautiful one where the attorney generalâ€™s granddaughter was born. The point, however, is that there is a problem when a flawed opinion by a single judge can block the presidentâ€™s lawful exercise of authority to keep the entire country safe.â€ť
Yes, there is an island called Hawaii in the state of Hawaii (which, of course, consists of many islands), but the judge in question sits on the island of Oahu.
Sessions sounds like the judge was sitting in a thatch hut drinking out of a coconut.
