The feud between President Donald Trump and his attorney general persisted Wednesday, even as a battered Jeff Sessions trudged ahead with his Justice Department duties.

Less than an hour after Sessions was deposited at the White House by a black SUV for routine meetings in the West Wing, Trump proclaimed from another corner of the same building that his displeasure in his attorney general hasn’t waned.

Let’s be clear, here, this is an epic battle. Sessions won’t quit and he is going to make Trump fire him, knowing that if Trump does fire him, Trump will suffer severe political damage.

Trump can pretend all he wants that he is not a politician, but he is the ultimate politician and he knows this thing has become an epic battle.

Get the popcorn ready.
