    Hawaii lawmakers are firing back at US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who slammed a Hawaii federal judge who blocked the latest version of President Donald Trump’s travel ban.

    Sessions referred to Federal Judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii, as “a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific” during an appearance on The Mark Levin Show, CNN reported on Thursday.

    . . .

    “Our federal courts, established under article III of the Constitution, are co-equal partners with Congress and the President. It is disappointing AG Sessions does not acknowledge that,” Chin’s statement read.

    3. Sessions joins the ranks of such AG "luminaries" as John Mitchell,

    Ed Meese, and Alberto Gonzales, who also showed contempt for the laws of the land.

    4. Sessions probably thinks Hawaii is a foreign country.

    A good thing it doesn’t have any oil of its own.
