Senator Jeff Sessions (R-ALABAMA) is a special guest-speaker at this exciting, packed rally in Mobile, Alabama on December 17th, 2016. Sen. Sessions was the first person in the U.S. Congress to endorse D.J. Trump in the presidential primary race, and appeared on the road with him many times, to the delight of rally crowds. Former Indiana Governor and President-Elect Mike Pence gives a rousing speech, expressing his gratitude, and introduces President-Elect Donald J. Trump at this, the last stop on their Thank You Tour. This may be the best Trump speech yet, and that’s saying a LOT!
Life-long Republican Hank Williams of Alabama sure sounded a lot like Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, & vice-versa (I think Jeff even looks a little like Hank). Give a listen:
