Sessions is Being Zagorski'ed

The lead character in my novel "$everance" is named Zagorski. His bosses are trying their best to get Zagorski to quit because they don't want to pay his severance. Zagorski responds by saying and doing things that will get his bosses to fire him, without giving them cause. It's a passive-aggressive stand off.

Witnessing that right now with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and President Trump. The President doesn't want to fire Sessions because he has been told it may lead to a constitutional crisis, so he is trying to humiliate him into quitting. Sessions won't quit because he knows what Trump is trying to do, so he keeps saying very professional things...which sends the president into a rage.

Pray for this country's poor satire writers. This is literally impossible to satirize. Nothing is more ridiculous than reality.

That's the president of the United States, folks. Classy behavior, right? He's mad at the Attorney General for following the law (correctly recusing himself) and not using the office to become a political tool of the president (going after the president's political opponents).

I'm hoping this is as bad as it gets and he simply remains a humiliating embarrassment to our country. I fear it's about to get worse.
