Post-Show Supplemental

If you weren’t tuned in to last night’s live Honest Answer Radio Show, you may want to follow the link, and catch up.

Marty and I both got a little heated last night, as we were talking about subjects about which both of us are rather passionate.  There will be no apologies given, nor will we be doing any backtracking.  The Honest Answer always stands behind the content and the emotions of our shows; those who don’t like the intensity don’t have to listen.  That being said; it’s always nice when someone that Marty and I both respect comes out making a statement that agrees with our point of view.  Apparently, Tucker Carlson of Fox News also believes that Donald Trump needs to lay off criticizing Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his recusal from the Russia investigation.  More after the break.

All of the reasons that Tucker Carlson listed in his commentary are valid, and true, and relevant; but I believe that the President should lay off Sessions for the additional reason that our US Attorney General deserves respect for being a man of his word.  Here in the Deep South, a Southern Gentleman is expected to keep his word, even if it is painful to do so.  Jeff Sessions is most definitely a Southern Gentleman; also, I expect that the Attorney General, when making the decision to recuse himself, had sacred Scripture in mind, specifically James 15:12, to wit:

But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.

Attorney General Sessions is a Christian man, and I am sure that he is intimately familiar with the above Scripture.  Although our Lord doesn’t really like oath-taking, it is allowed; however, we Christians are expected to do what we say we will do, without the need for an oath.  Sessions told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he would recuse himself from any investigation into the Trump Campaign’s relations with Russia.  No one, especially the President, should be either surprised or appalled that Sessions kept his word, even though such a thing is as common in Washington as the Dodo.  Some things are more important that political expediency.
