Social Media Tears Bill Barr Apart After He Admits He’d Vote for Trump Again
This is why we can't have nice things.
In an interview with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie on Today, former Attorney General William Barr said that no matter what, he will vote for the Republican nominee in 2024 — even if it’s Donald Trump.
This comes after the longtime lawyer has declared both vocally and in his new memoir One Damn Thing After Another that Trump was acting completely crazy after the 2020 election.
I was pretty content with the administration until the election…But after the election, he went off the rails. He wouldn’t listen to anybody except a little coterie of sycophants who were telling him what he wanted to hear. I think he did a lot of damage after the election, both with this idea that the election was stolen, and also by him rallying this group to Capitol Hill where the clear purpose was to intimidate the vice president and Congress.
Those are pretty strong statements to make if Barr is just going to turn around and willingly try to put that guy back in office.
He told the host that he didn’t think Trump should be the nominee and that he would be supporting some other candidate for the nomination. Nevertheless, when Guthrie pressed him on the issue, he admitted he would still absolutely vote for the man he called “dangerous”:
Because I believe the greatest threat to the country is the progressive agenda being pushed by the Democratic Party, it’s inconceivable to me that I wouldn’t vote for the Republican nominee.

So Bill Barr would rather have a president who literally tried to dismantle democracy itself than see student loans being forgiven or further regulation of the healthcare industry.
It sounds like somebody is crazy, and it may not just be Donald Trump alone. Anyone who would support him in a bid to become president again — especially if they’ve recognized the terrible things Trump did — is absolutely nuts.
Twitter was disgusted:
And here’s more Bill Barr: “Of course, I’ll vote for Trump in 2024 if he’s the nominee. I don’t care if he’s detached from reality. Of course I’ll vote for him again.” https://t.co/T7UnH6Gp2q

So BIll Barr is sayin' that he would still vote for Trump after he also said that Trump was the one who instigated the capitol riot, caused an insurrection and can't stop lyin'.
Who else thinks it's time to stop puttin' Barr on TV promotin' his book?

Bill Barr says he would still vote for Trump in 2024, after declaring Trump is a liar, responsible for the January 6 attack on the Capitol, insurrection, and is a threat to democracy.
This proves Bill Barr is a traitor to the US!

The dick of the day trophy goes to NBC for rolling out the red carpet for Bill Barr after he did more to fuck the United States over than any other AG in history—even telling Savannah Guthrie he would vote for criminal Trump again.
Thanks for the re-abuse, NBC.#DickOfTheDay 🏆

"Hi! Bill Barr here, rehabilitating my image!
Was I appalled at Trump's behavior? Disgusting!
Was he behind the attack on the Capitol and American voters? Damn straight!
Would I vote for him, again? You bet! I'm GOP and it's party first, for me!" pic.twitter.com/5K1XP52IDZ

Bill Barr essentially admitted that Trump committed treason, and then said he would vote for him in 2024 anyway.
We need to get it out of our heads that any good Republicans exist, or that they'll "come to their senses"
The party must be burned to the ground. This is the way.

Bill Barr calls tRump dangerous and off the rails…yet says he will vote for him in 2024. Talk about a bootlicker. Trying to cover all of the bases. Barr has no leadership skills and is nothing but a ass kisser. Don’t put a penny in his pocket by buying his garbage book.
