U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is amazed a judge from Hawaii could call a halt to President Trump's travel ban.  In a radio interview Thursday, Sessions dismissed Hawaii as a remote outpost, calling it just "an island in the Pacific."  

The magistrate in question, Derrick Watson, is actually a federal judge assigned to a district court in Hawaii.  Senator Brian Schatz tweeted to Sessions, "You voted for that judge. And the island is called Oahu. Have some respect."
