Unsurprisingly, Sessions seems to be a climate change denier. "Carbon pollution is CO2, and that’s really not a pollutant; that’s a plant food, and it doesn’t harm anybody except that it might include temperature increases," Sessions said during a 2015 Senate hearing for EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy.

Food for thought.
The Voting Rights Act
The VRA, which empowered minorities to get groundbreaking equal access to their voting rights, was apparently a bad thing to Sessions. He called the historic act a “piece of intrusive legislation,” a quote that he stood by during his failed 1986 federal judicial confirmation hearing.Jeff Sessions prosecuted black voters in Alabama...for voting. pic.twitter.com/0OPS1etfkx— Anthony M.

Another racist moment that popped up during Sessions' confirmation hearing was his lax stance on the Ku Klux Klan. One of his staffers, Thomas Figures, testified that Sessions derogatorily called him "boy" and joked about the KKK in front of him. Sessions' former co-workers also testified that he joked that he thought the hate group was “OK," until he learned that they "smoked marijuana.”Jeff Sessions, considered too racist to be a judge in 80's, is Trump's AG.
