With confirmation hearings for President-elect Trump's Cabinet nominees begin today, it’s no surprise Senate Democrats and their alt-radical left allies have revealed their intention to paint attorney general nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions, who is a good man with an exemplary record, as a racist.
This is a tactic that Democrats at every level deploy every election, and it's something they've used successfully to undermine and even stop Republican nominees in the past. Just last year, President Obama played the race card repeatedly while campaigning for Hillary Clinton, shamelessly trying to link Donald Trump to the Ku Klux Klan.
None of us should be surprised by this smear strategy. Democrats have no shame and no moral compass when it comes to playing the race card. They prove how low the left is willing to go to scare voters and to get their way. We can expect this despicable tradition to continue as Trump nominees about to undergo the confirmation process. Back in 1987, President Reagan nominated Robert Bork, one of the brightest judicial minds in the country, to serve on the Supreme Court, and Democrats led by liberal Sen. Ted Kennedy, used the same tactics to destroy this man and block his confirmation.
