Donald Trump is finally a happy man. After waiting around for his incessant abuse of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to produce results, Trump’s badgering eventually paid off in the form of a replacement who’s as slippery as a salamander, as loyal as a dog, and as morally bankrupt as Trump’s entire sphere of self-serving grifters.
