LifeZette Editor-in-Chief Laura Ingraham praised Sen. Jeff Sessions for being “so well prepared” for his first round of confirmation hearings Tuesday and bashed Democrats’ attempts to create unnecessary drama on Fox News’ “Special Report” with Bret Baier.
“All the drama that was anticipated about Sen. Sessions especially. I think the Golden Globes were more interesting, at this point,” Ingraham said Tuesday evening.
“I mean, he was so well prepared. He had a great team of people helping him get prep for this hearing,” Ingraham added.
Sessions demonstrated a “breadth of knowledge” about all of the “hot button issues” facing the country, Ingraham said. Even when Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein from California grilled Sessions on his pro-life abortion stance, the Trump’s attorney general nominee stayed calm and focused.
“[Sessions] was asked about Roe vs. Wade and, ‘Should you stand by your view that Roe vs. Wade was one of the most outrageously bad decisions ever?’ And he said, ‘Yes I do.’ And then he also said, but he also said as attorney general, it is currently the law of the land. And obviously allocating the right power to the executive branch versus what the judicial branch may or may not do with Roe vs. Wade,” Ingraham said.
Although the liberals’ attempts to come out swinging and undermine Sessions fell flat, Ingraham said, “but I think they tried.”
“But I think he’s going to get confirmed,” Ingraham said. “And this is really, what this is about is not whether Jeff will get confirmed or not — Senator Sessions. It’s about power. It’s about the Democrats playing to their aggrieved base. It’s about fundraising. It’s about 2018 and 2020. And that’s in the end what most of these confirmation hearings are going to be about.”
