Jeff Sessions is out. On Wednesday afternoon, several news outlets reported the Attorney General resigned per Donald Trump's request. 

Here is Jeff Sessions' resignation letter to President Trump

Trump quickly confirmed the news via Twitter. Sessions' resignation comes as Trump tries to clean house following the midterm elections. 

We are pleased to announce that Matthew G. Whitaker, Chief of Staff to Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice, will become our new Acting Attorney General of the United States. He will serve our Country well....

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 7, 2018

This is a little scary, considering Trump is likely going to appoint someone who is willing to crush Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation and protect him from the possibility of impeachment. But Sessions also sucks, so the people of Twitter are rightfully celebrating with hilarious reactions. 

jeff sessions is the only confederate monument trump was willing to take down

Many of the responses poke fun at Sessions' uncanny resemblance to a Keebler elf.

It's unclear what Sessions will be up to after resigning as AG, but people have a hunch he'll be up to his same old tricks. 

Me enjoying Jeff Sessions’ firing but knowing this probably means America's about to jump out of the frying pan and into the fire:

Trump’s actions today firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions may be a prelude to the attempted removal of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the Russia investigation uncovering Trump’s crimes and treasons.

This is all fun and games, but this likely means some horrible shit is about to go down regarding the Mueller investigation, so uh, stay tuned?
