Now there’s one image that you don’t want to see!!! Pass the bleach – STAT!!
Most of the reviews of Barr’s book are… lukewarm or less… some downright negative (imagine THAT!) The ones that ring true to me say that Barr’s attempting to rewrite himself as a clear-seeing and careful fellow who just happened to work for the orange mistake. This is considerably different than the way I remember him behaving… and since I’ve seen him lie with a perfectly straight face on national TV before, I’m prepared to believe he’s doing that trick both in print and on the talk circuit while promoting the book.
He’s the Republican’s version of Frankenstein’s monster. Too bad, so sad for them.
Sleazebag Barr had enabled the Rump in many of his crimes. Now he is hoping that we would not remember that.
Republicans warn Justice Department probe of Trump would trigger political war (thehill.com)
“We’re all implicated, but that’s your problem.” —repugs
You’d think the “law and order” party would be all for ensuring nobody is above the law. Unless “law and order” is a dog whistle for some…other thing…“Law and order”, but only so long as there’s a group of people the law protects but doesn’t bind, and a group of people the law binds but doesn’t protect.
So I guess we should just continue to let them eat our government from the inside out like termites. If one politician breaks the rules, that politician has a problem. If all the politicians in the party break the rules, the country has a problem. Which furthers the point that the investigation must take place in my view.
And what are they threatening to do? Abandon bipartisanship and political norms? Stack the courts with extremists? Refuse to seat Supreme Court appointees by a Democratic President? Incite violence, coups? Try to find more ways of preventing people from voting, and overturning legitimate elections? What exactly are we supposed to be scared they’ll do that they didn’t start doing a long time ago?
To quote our fellow defenders of democracy and antifascist Ukrainian compatriots - "Russian/repug warship, go f— yourself"
a former AG of below average intelligence who did his damnedest to promote trump’s agenda writes a book and we should be interested why…?
The Beastly Bumpkin Naked? All the easier for Barr to pucker up and kiss.
Too little too late from Barr
Mean tweets, but peace, prosperity. and low taxes, low inflation, and low gas prices. I’LL TAKE THE MEAN TWEETS!
Funny but I didn’t see any ‘mean tweets’. Just honest thoughts about a corrupt president and one of his lackeys. There were no ‘tweets’.
BOO HISS! He’s still siding with Sir-Lies -A -Lot
If you’ll keep your eyes open, Mr. Goodwyn….
What a sick, mentally ill group.
Certainly seems to be a different tune than when he was AG, but then when pressed, he goes back to the same old song.
it’s all about the Benjamins
I listened to Mr. Barr on NPR on my way into work yesterday. After decrying Trump’s appalling behavior, Mr Barr said he vote for him again.
Now I know why my Comcast bill charged me for sports programs, channels I never watch, remote controls, anything and everything possible. (The Fine Print by David Cay Johnston) “From 2009 to 2018, Barr served on the board of directors for Time Warner.” – Wikipedia
A hypocrite fit to be associated with trump, “Barr as attorney general in 1992 authored the report The Case for More Incarceration, where he argued for an increase in the United States incarceration rate.4 Under Barr’s advice, President George H. W. Bush in 1992 pardoned six officials involved in the Iran–Contra affair.” – Wikipedia
And, of course, he gave his biased summary of the Mueller Report.Too little, too late. If he thought trump was an “unhinged maniac”, he 1. should have said something asap, perhaps could have stopped the Big Lie; 2. should not declare he’d vote for him anyway… tends to make Billy Boy sound rather unhinged himself.
’Nother connie cartoonist dissing the former guy?
I’ll take it!
If Trump runs again and wins, there will be such a meltdown that, even if COVID ends, I’ll still self isolate for four years!
Great, just great. Now I’m gonna have nightmares.
Just read the preface of the book over on Amazon, very interesting. I think even the left wingers here would find it so.
Barr: Trump got “madder and madder” when rebuffed on election fraud claims
When he entered the Oval Office, Barr said the conversation quickly turned into a back and forth between Barr and Trump about the former president’s allegations of widespread fraud.
During that conversation, Barr said Trump got “madder and madder” so Barr said that he could resign if Trump was not happy about his work.
“I said, ‘look, Mr. President, I know you’re unhappy with me. I’m happy to tender my resignation.’ Boom, he hit the desk, and said, accepted,” Barr recalled. “As I was pulling out of the White House, two of his lawyers came and pounded on the window, government lawyers, and said, ‘The president doesn’t want you to leave.’”
Barr’s resignation was official in December 2020. He has not spoken to Trump since then and said he wouldn’t particularly want to have another conversation.
“You don’t have a conversation [with him]. You mostly listen,” he said.
You have to be an idiot to vote for criminal republican thugocracy.
New book details Trump’s bizarre rant about Bill Barr’s jowls getting saggy
Barr explained that it was always easy to get time with Trump because he was probably in the dining room watching Fox, which he did so “religiously.” Impromptu meetings even seemed to happen there, with Fox blaring in the background and Trump signing autographed photos.
In one vignette, Barr recalled Trump’s calls, mostly at night, where he would ramble on and on with “only a small fraction of which related to the department.”
He wrote that Trump “watched Fox News religiously and would sometimes call to make sure I saw a particular segment.”
“The President was always prompt in giving me immediate visual feedback when I appeared on TV,” said Barr noting one “amusing conversation” about his weight after he made a self-deprecating remark about his “jowliness” on television.
“No, Bill,” Trump said. “You’re fine, you’re fine. Yeah, you’re big. But you carry it well. Whatever you do, don’t lose too much weight. Because then your face is going to sag. You’re lucky because your face, I mean your cheeks—they’re filled out. They look smooth and young. But I guarantee you, if you lose a lot of weight, you’ll look old and saggy.”
Traitor Trump is a total troll.
Too little too late to save your reputation, Mr Barr. By far.
I’m just looking at this strip for the second time and now I see that the elephant is a depiction of Trump. Clever!
