It’s As If Robert Byrd Never Existed

Former US Senator Jeff Sessions was pilloried in the Senate on his attitude many decades ago that MAY have reflected the soft racist Southern attitude of the South of the day. No actual evidence exists, just “feelings.” Consequently, the Democrats, still smarting from their November defeat, are trying to wound all of Trump’s nominees for HIS Cabinet.    
Senator Chuck Schumer opined under the Obama administration “that once you elect a president, he deserves his choices to run the executive branch.” Of course that was then under Democrats and this is now under Republicans!

As I recall, Senator Robert Byrd, Democrat of West Virginia, had been a “Kleagle” and “Grand Cyclops” (whatever those are) of the Ku Klux Klan, and I don’t recall anyone on the Senate floor commenting negatively on him! Associate Justice of the Supreme Court was approved to the Supreme Court in spite of his prior membership in the Ku Klux Klan…but somehow Senator Sessions is unqualified because he was a Racist?

The mind boggles!
