MSNBC: NYT Reports Trump Blasted ‘Idiot’ Sessions for Russia Probe Recusal

‘The report alleges trump also told sessions that choosing him to be attorney general was one of the worst decisions he had ever made’

EXCERPT:

SCARBOROUGH: "So there’s this report in 'The New York Times' that claims that the President berated Jeff Sessions in front of other top officials after appointment of the special counsel in the Russian probe. And the report says that Donald Trump immediately blamed Sessions and called him an idiot. The report alleges Trump also told Sessions that choosing him to be attorney general was one of the worst decisions he had ever made and that he should resign immediately. An emotional Sessions offered his resignation letter, which the President did not accept. He called it the most humiliating experience in his decades of public life."
