Is Trump’s Base Turning on the President Over His Humiliation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions?

President Trump is continuing to publicly humiliate his own attorney general, Jeff Sessions, who was the first senator to endorse Trump during the 2016 race. On Twitter, Trump described Sessions as "beleaguered" and "very weak." At a press conference on Tuesday, Trump said he was "disappointed" Sessions had recused himself from the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Meanwhile, Breitbart News and other right-wing outlets are openly criticizing Trump’s treatment of Sessions. We speak with Joshua Green of Bloomberg Businessweek about the latest news plus his new book, "Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency."
