Former Trump Attorney General Bill Barr is taking fire from all sides after criticizing the former president while also calling the far-left wing of the Democrat Party ‘dangerous for the United States.’

While promoting his book, One Damn Thing After Another: Memoirs of an Attorney General, Barr has repeatedly stated he would not support Donald Trump during the GOP primary in 2024, if he were to run. This has angered many die hard Trump supporters, even though Barr has also stated he will support whoever is the GOP nominee.


The reason Barr says he will support Trump if he is the Republican Party choice, despite his preference for another GOP nominee, is because Barr strongly believes “the progressive [leftist] wing of the Democratic Party is dangerous for the United States.” This is also something Barr has thankfully repeated quite often in recent weeks.

However, when Barr told NBC’s Meet the Press host Chuck Todd this same thing, Todd blew a proverbial gasket as shown by MRC NewsBusters: “You’ve said this quite a bit. It’s an uncomfortable thing to hear from somebody who was needing to provide equal justice under the law as attorney general.”

See the MRC clip below:

The closeted liberal Todd expressed his faux outrage at Barr’s statement, even though in 2014, when Barack Obama’s hyper partisan Attorney General was leaving office, Todd laughably gushed that “…he’s a very non-political person….Eric Holder wasn’t thinking about the politics of an issue….The guy wasn’t political at all…”

MRC NewsBusters added:

On Sunday, Todd continued to admonish Barr: “You really think the left in this country is somehow more dangerous than – than some issues around the world?” Barr pushed back: “No, I just said in terms of the leadership of the country, I think they would be a dangerous choice for the United States.”

Despite being so “uncomfortable” with Barr labeling the left “dangerous,” only seconds earlier in the discussion, Todd had no problem comparing Trump to “totalitarian leaders” like Putin.

When challenged by Todd about how Barr could justify voting for Trump in 2024 against Joe Biden after Barr describing the former president’s ‘temperamental’ and ‘character issues,’ in his book and interviews, Barr replied:

“Well, I think there are a lot of American people right now that might prefer being – having him [Trump] back in office than what we see under Biden.”

BINGO.

The mainstream media, THE ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE! They are the political operatives that have infiltrated and sabotaged WE THE PEOPLE with their self-righteous, partisan hate tactics 24 hours a day! NEVER fair and balanced, always freely and willing to protect all their deliberate lies showing to the world with their words and actions how right they actually, deliberately know they think they are, but, they DON’T think!

I would rather have a ass clown and a brain-dead monkey running our country “oh wait that’s what we have.”
