The fir­ing of At­tor­ney Gen­eral Jeff Ses­sions demon­strated that Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has zero com­pas­sion for oth­ers and that loy­alty for him is a one-way street.

Trump did not even have the courage to tell Ses­sions he was fired. In­stead, he sent his chief of staff, John Kelly, to tell Ses­sions that he was fired and that he was to leave the Depart­ment of Jus­tice that very day.

Ses­sions was one of the first peo­ple to sup­port Trump’s can­di­dacy, and he car­ried out many of Trump’s ma­jor poli­cies on im­mi­gra­tion and crime. But Trump never for­gave him for re­cus­ing him­self from the Rus­sia in­ves­ti­ga­tion, which was re­quired by Jus­tice Depart­ment ethics stan­dards.

Once again, Trump has shown the world he is self­cen­tered, mean and lack­ing any mo­ral com­pass.
