Michael, you had me at “very funny lyrics.” Seriously, you and I are aligned in our perspective here; so I will simply put an exclamation point on a couple things you said …

When Sessions or Trump are extolling their virtues (campaigning, job interviews, Fox News interviews, etc.), they are the smartest, most experienced, most detail-oriented, most empathetic, … the best qualified for the job. And of course, Trump has specifically and many times said, “I have the best memory!”

When they’re pressed for their involvement in potential wrong-doing, they use this 5-point plan:
(1) first answer questions weren’t asked,
(2) then, clarify using double-talk,
(3) then, use the “I don’t recall”,
(4) then, get indignant at being challenged, and
(5) finally, accuse someone else of unrelated indiscretions or crimes.

Lastly, it’s within reason to believe Trump’s recommendation to Cabinet nominees was to “tell them what you need to, and omit what you must, to get confirmed.” Followed by, “and if you’re ever challenged on your original tesitmony, use the 5-point plan … ‘cause at that point, you’ve already got the job!”
