NY Times Reporter: Trump Is 'Cyberbullying' Sessions

MSNBC's "Morning Joe"

By    |   Wednesday, 26 Jul 2017 12:51 PM

President Donald Trump is guilty of "cyberbullying" Jeff Sessions in a bid to get the attorney general he appointed to quit — and the right is beginning to get tired of it, Jeremy Peters, a Washington reporter for The New York Times said Wednesday.

"Jeff Sessions was the embodiment of that conservative, nationalist strain of politics that ultimately delivered the White House to Donald Trump," Peters told Joe Scarborough during an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

"So in distancing himself from Sessions, well actually, what I will describe as cyberbullying, he's cyberbullying Sessions into what he hopes will be his resignation because he won't say it to his face," Peters said.

The Oxford University Press Dictionary defines cyberbullying as "the use of electronic communication to bully a person, typically by sending messages of an intimidating or threatening nature."

Trump has been taking potshots at Sessions on Twitter over the past several days.

The president began his anti-Sessions rants by saying he never would have appointed him attorney general had he known Sessions would recuse himself from the federal probe into Russia's tampering with the 2016 presidential election and whether there was collusion by the Trump campaign.

But Trump's Sessions-bashing is beginning to wear thin with some conservatives, according to Peters.

"The right is starting to break from Trump in a pretty significant way. You have Rush Limbaugh … saying the other day that he's troubled by this, you have Matt Drudge … you have Breitbart. And even [Fox News'] Tucker Carlson," Peters said.

"These voices on the right that are usually highly deferential to the president are starting to say, this is one friend you had in Washington and now you're throwing him under the bus," Peters said.

So far, Sessions is saying he is staying put, telling the White House he's not planning to step down, The Washington Post reports.
