Conservative media is decrying “the Left” immediate attacks on Pruitt’s interim replacement, EPA deputy secretary Andrew Wheeler who was one of the Coal lobby’s biggest boosters.

Sessions has intimated that DOJ will investigate and sue universities over discriminatory admissions policies. Back in the studio, Sam accepts that “Zero Sum Game” is his political talisman.
