I'm old enough to remember Cokie Roberts chiding Barack Obama for going home to Hawaii for a vacation (IIRC), because it was too "exotic."
“We are confident that the President will prevail on appeal and particularly in the Supreme Court, if not the Ninth Circuit,” Sessions said in a Wednesday night interview on “The Mark Levin” radio show, first flagged by CNN’s KFILE. “So this is a huge matter. I 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.”
And I do know of people who still confuse "New Mexico," the state between Texas and Arizona, with Mexico, the country, so that people who hale from New Mexico are considered foreigners.
Which I guess is some kind of comfort. Validity depends on geography, or something. I mean, no judge from the Old South would dare oppose the President's "statutory and Constitutional power," now, would he?
Adding: that island in the Pacific has two U.S. Senators. Who knew?
Mr. Attorney General: You voted for that judge. And that island is called Oahu. It's my home. Have some respect. https://t.co/sW9z3vqBqG— Brian Schatz (@brianschatz) April 20, 2017
Hawaii was built on the strength of diversity & immigrant experiences- including my own. Jeff Sessions’ comments are ignorant & dangerous— Senator Mazie Hirono (@maziehirono) April 20, 2017
