|Jeff "Idiot" Sessions|
President Trump reportedly "berated" Attorney General Jeff Sessions earlier this year after learning that a special counsel had been appointed to lead the investigation into his campaign aides' ties to Russia.
In an Oval Office meeting following the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller in May, Trump called Sessions an "idiot" and said he should resign, The New York Times reports.
After the meeting, Sessions reportedly sent the White House a resignation letter, but Trump rejected it on the advice of aides.
NYT said that Sessions later called the incident "the most humiliating experience in decades of public life."
According to NYT, allies of Sessions said he chose to remain in the job because he thinks of it as a "once-in-a-lifetime" chance to crack down on illegal immigration---which proves Trump is correct Sessions is an idiot, an immigrant-hating one.
