    I see. So, as the context was "Many Republicans in Congress" you inferred from my response "Yeah. The radical alt-right wack jobs" that all radical alt-right wack jobs are in Congress? There are not a few who are not in Congress but maybe working for Fox News or somebody similar.

    Well, never mind. My first assessment was correct. You do have a reading comprehension problem. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I said "many." You responded "Yeah. The radical alt-right wack jobs."
    How would most readers interpret that?

    Yes, any person with even modest reading comprehension would understand you to mean "man in Congress." But, unfortunately, those with marginal reading comprehension skills try to twist that to "So all who have criticized Sessions are Alt-Right."

    According to his utter failure to understand simple English, all Democrats, and all Republicans who are critical of Sessions are alt-right, including himself and you! LOL!

    I took it to mean the only Republican Congressmen who have criticized him are alt-right. I consider many of them to be far from alt-right.

    Seems every post is either insulting or touting your virtues.
    Yes, in context your response would mean all those opposing Jeff Sessions in congress. Think about it.

    Someone made the comment that many republicans in congress have complained about Sessions. You then came back and said, yeah a bunch of alt right wack jobs. Your answer implies that all those complaining about Sessions are alt right. And if it doesn't mean that your response is very strange.

    If you just merely meant that some of those complaining about Sessions are wack jobs then you admit that some are not and the charges against Session are legit. Is that really what you meant to say, that criticisms against Sessions are legit and that some good people are criticizing him? That would undermine your own response.

    Thus the natural inference is the assume you meant all those criticizing are whack jobs.

    But now you're backpedaling, even after touting your own honesty. I would have to now ask, do you have an honesty problem?

    As did I. And that's exactly what he meant, and everyone he knows it. And this from a guy that claims he learned to be honest at a very young age. That fact is, he's not honest at all. He argues deceptively like this often, and then beats his chest touting his credentials.

    I think this sums it up.

    Gregg Jarrett: Jeff Sessions Is Not Attorney General - Is kept in the Dark, Out of Major Decisions



    But, I suppose Jerrett is also alt-right along with all those congressmen.
