MSNBC Guest: Jeff Sessions Is a ‘Confederate Attorney General’

During the Saturday “AM Joy” broadcast on MSNBC, SiriusXM Progress host Mark Thompson called President-elect Donald Trump’s Attorney General pick, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), a “Confederate Attorney General.”

“[Sessions] is a Confederate Attorney General,” Thompson told host Joy Reid. “As John Lewis said so aptly the other day, he can be nice and friendly, but we know what his policies have meant and what he’s been up to throughout his tenure, so I think we do have to be very concerned about that.”
