The Root Is Live-Blogging Jeff Sessions' Testimony to Congress Because We Hate Ourselves

Hello, y’all. I’m Michael Arceneaux, contributor to The Root and perpetual masochist.

As the headline suggests, I’m here to live blog Attorney General Segregation Now, Segregation Forever Jeff Sessions’ testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee as part of its investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election. I’m surprised Sessions’ testimony is starting late given he’s not proven himself to be a fan of colored people, much less colored people time. We also know Sessions isn’t BFFs with the truth, so one wonders whether or not he’ll lie like hell as he did in previous testimony’s before his former Senate colleagues.


I’ll begin by saying bless Sen. Richard Burr’s heart for speaking pleasantries and pretending he’s not speaking to a man who is apart of an administration that would push Lady Liberty in the street for Vladimir Putin.

Sessions looked bored out of his mind while Sen. Warner spoke. Like he would have rather been at Paula Deen’s house watching Underground and rooting for the slave owners.
