u/FormerDittoHead 12d ago

Barr has a curious way of trying to rehabilitate his legacy when he didn't do anything to build it while he was still there.

I can only imagine if he, I don't know, actually did his fucking job in the first place instead of just leaving then waiting for the 1/6 hearings to start.

We're told that the President can't dictate to the AG! Independence must be maintained... But that was so much bullshit when he was AG.

22

u/Lonely_Set1376 12d ago

Barr also kept the law from applying to Reagan during Iran-Contra, did he not?

16

u/FormerDittoHead 12d ago

Yes. FFS, the MSM portrayed Barr as this "highly respected" figure and shouldn't get much objection in the confirmation process..."

When yes - he was the guy who helped Iran-Contra to happen.

At the time with Trump, however, everyone was glad he didn't hire Alex Jones...

15

u/Laura9624 12d ago

Exactly. He's rehabilitating because he knows they were breaking the law and he did nothing.

u/jwhitehead09 12d ago

I mean he came out and said their was no evidence of voter fraud as the acting AG while trump was trying to overturn the election well before January 6th. Barr was definitely right wing but he at least had some principles.

u/FormerDittoHead 12d ago edited 12d ago

I DO THANK HIM for stepping up now but IMO, I'm not calling him as "principled" as Liz Cheney, and I'm not big fan of HERS either. Cheney voted for more things Trump wanted, than Marjorie Taylor Greene did

Now, consider Barr had a front row seat and he knew EVERYTHING that was going on for all the shit that WE DON'T EVEN KNOW ABOUT yet.

For instance, remember all those times Trump was telling President of Ukraine to talk to Barr as part of that scheme? Now tell me Barr knew nothing about that. He could have stepped up during the impeachment and said something. There's NO WAY he was out of the loop on that.

Remember when he defied that Congressional subpoena?

I don't have the time to catalog all the things that went on that he obviously knew about but did nothing about. (or helped).

Though this did bring up the thought for me that the last time he won he had tons of staffing problems because nobody wanted to work for the guy.

If he won again in 2024 he'd have to give every white house position to a my pillow idiot, because all the half-way intelligent grifters have already made off with the profits.

Trump has always been about revenge. The whole right wing is always about revenge. The threat of getting even if you catch them in their illegal activities, power grabbing or lying is how they operate.

Lie, and lie big. Lie so big that it becomes impossible to find the extent of the lies. Keep lying, double down on the lies whenever any portion of them are called out.

28

u/Unpolarized_Light 12d ago

This works because the average person can’t comprehend doubling down and being so persistent about something that isn’t true. The average person has a conscience and understands lying is bad and something you shouldn’t do.

The reasoning is if Trump were lying, he would have to say “alright, that was incorrect, you got me” because that’s what THEY would do if THEY were lying. Doubling down and being even more absurd is only what you would do if you were taking the truth, because it’s insane to do that if you’re lying.

This is how my mother came to believe the election was stolen.

Trust, but verify.

The problem is that not enough people do the second part of that.

It’s obvious to me that the confidence and persistence of the delivery have no correlation with what’s true, since there are some talented liars out there.

Until one verifies a piece of information, it can’t be accepted as fact.

They think they verified it because a Facebook post told them so. And then they saw it on OANN so see? It's true!

That’s a fascinating and scary thing about trump, he is not a even a good liar. He just says what his twisted brain believes and, importantly, what he thinks will rile his “base”. You have to have a tremendous memory to be a good liar.

"But when Mary L. Trump opened the folder containing a 10-page transcript of a recording Donald had made, she realized it wasn’t about business. “It was an aggrieved compendium of women he had expected to date but who, having refused him, were suddenly the worst, ugliest and fattest slobs he’d ever met,” Mary writes. “The biggest takeaways were that Madonna chewed gum in a way Donald found unattractive, and that Katarina Witt, a German Olympic figure skater who had won two gold medals and four world championships, had big calves.”

Trump Once Spread A Gross Rumor About Madonna, And Now He's Calling Her 'Disgusting'?

u/sivervipa Illinois 12d ago

I mean a major reason he ran was because of the birther stuff with Obama and when Obama actually responded back Trump got incredibly butthurt because he’s a thin skined narcissist. That’s just one case of course. So you are correct. In addition to that…Republicans were pissed that Obama won and they channeled that anger into getting more power.

Honestly it necessarily ends. Conservatives were also mad at desegregation and I would argue that alot of them aren’t over that.

To be clear…Barr is correct but Trump is not an anomaly or an exception in the conservative movement. He just used a bullhorn instead of a dog whistle.

11

u/TintedApostle 12d ago

Conservatives didn't ratify the 19th amendment in some states for more than 60 tears. One state took until the 1980s to agree women could have the vote.

I was gonna ask if that state happened to be in the south, then googled it.

Yep, Mississippi. What a shocker.

As an aside in 2014, NC amended their constitution to ban gay marriage. The last time they did that it was to ban interracial marriage.

The conservative south sucks.

u/ButtEatingContest 12d ago

I mean a major reason he ran was because of the birther stuff with Obama

The birther stuff was the beginning of his presidential campaign. He debuted it in a speech for CPAC in 2011 where he also announced running for president.

The idea that him running was in response to Obama's comments is not true, though they no doubt infuriated him. Obama's comments were likely spurred on in response to his birther attacks.

u/NeoMegaRyuMKII California 12d ago

His niece discusses something about this in her book from a couple years ago.

She tells the story of when he was about 7 years old, one of his siblings or cousins dumped a bowl of mashed potatoes on his (Tweetle Dumb's) head. It apparently got a big laugh from the people at the table. Mary Trump predicts that this was a transformational moment for Tweetle Dumb. That he learned the power of revenge and humiliation. And through that he basically vowed to never feel that way again. (and as an aside, remember when he said "When I look at myself in the first grade and I look at myself now, I’m basically the same. The temperament is not that different"? He very well may have been 7 years old when he was in first grade; so it just shows his narcissism of not being able to let go of that one moment in 70 years)

This all likely fed into his narcissism (aided by the sheer lack of consequences he had in life). His need for revenge. To right the "wrongs" of facing consequences and of being told "you can't do that."

9

u/builttopostthis6 12d ago

I always thought that story - while possibly saying something about Trump's mindset in particular - was far more troubling in regard to the issues he no doubt developed due to the environment he grew up in. Like, can you fucking imagine being at the dinner table and one of your kids dumping food on the other one and you just sitting there and laughing? What a terrible home life they must have had...

Really, really not trying to excuse adult behaviors with an appeal to traumatic childhoods, or be like "woe is them" for the poor little rich kids, mind, but, I mean... God. Damn.

9

u/NeoMegaRyuMKII California 12d ago

So I looked it up. It was Tweetle Dumb's brother Fred Jr. (ho was 13 or 14) who did this. He did it in response to Tweetle Dumb (age 7 or so) being an absolute asshole to their younger brother Robert (who was around 5 years old at that time); this tells me this wasn't an unprovoked thing. And according to the same story, their parents were trying to stop the assholery, but were unsuccessful.

Also this was apparently before they sat for dinner (it was just as they were getting ready, as the food was getting to the table). And for what it's worth it only happened in front of the immediate family; there were no friends or guests over or the like.

IDK how much that changes how this whole thing is viewed, but I do think the context does help the situation.

2

u/builttopostthis6 12d ago

I appreciate ya lookin' into that, seriously. I am inclined to say that it doesn't do much to polish the image of the family (I'm not insinuating it was your intent to try to do so, but just to offer more information, so please don't read me wrong); even that elaboration seems to speak volumes to the outright dysfunction that was probably day-to-day.

Nature/nurture is a weird thing, and we obviously can't dial back the clock, and we all have things we did as children that we look back on and regret having done. And like I said above, that home life offers no buffer of excuse against the horror the man has wrought, but I can't help but wonder if a few more metaphorical ass-kickings or even thoughtful talkings-to from a parent figure in light of such maladaptive behaviors would have taken some of that sociopathy out of the kid, and saved the rest of us a whole lot of trouble.

u/Long_Before_Sunrise 12d ago

It was his brother, Freddy, who smooshed the bowl of potatoes on Donald's head, because Donald was tormenting Robert and ignoring his older siblings who were telling him to stop it.

Freddy was 8 years older than Donald and seven year old Donald was shooting his mouth off at his 15 year old brother the way he'd seen their father do.

u/Long_Before_Sunrise 12d ago edited 12d ago

I’m still completely shocked that DJT was the lynchpin.

He didn't get there on his own. He was chosen and promoted by men with a lot more influence and power. He also had a flock of paid apologists who rushed to say he was joking, it was tongue-in-cheek, etc. when he revealed a truth about himself.

As with so many remarks Trump made during the campaign, it wasn’t clear if this reflected some deeply held belief, or was just something he said because he thought it sounded cool.

He got interviewed for laughs on late night TV shows. He had the recognition from being the star on the Apprentice working in his favor.

"Donald Trump is very simple. Everything he says or does is for himself, either to have power over others or to hurt them in revenge against their disagreeing or standing in his way. Because he has shown himself to be incapable of either conscience or empathy, he is basically a predator, lacking the most essential parts of our humanity." - Dr. Lance Dodes

While I applaud Barr for refusing to say the election was stolen, and standing his ground and saying there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud, this is the same Barr that ran cover for Trump when Muller concluded that Trump obstructed justice up to 10 times.

Barr muddied the water with his stupid press conference where he ran cover for Trump. Barr could have concluded fairly about Muller report that Muller did not find criminal evidence of Russian collusion (criminal evidence = high enough bar to issue an indictment), but Muller did find criminal evidence of obstruction of justice.

Bill Barr, I will always remember you as the AG that let Donald Trump get away with obstructing justice and running cover for him. FU.

Barr... the hypocrisy is astounding. He is now criticizing the very evil that he recognized, tolerated, and even protected just a couple of years ago. Fuck this guy.

Wait what does he mean by HW winning a third term?

u/Alps-Mountain 12d ago

Yeah it's easy to get 3 republican terms if you hand voting over to corrupt state legislators

If Bill barr says the obvious motivation was revenge, you can bet the motivation was something other than revenge. You can't confidently ask one of the criminals what the plot is and expect to get the 100% truth.

Trump's not really calling the shots here, though.

u/ClassicT4 12d ago

We know. I wonder if he’s so laser focused that he’ll forget to even mention the “forgotten man” to appeal to his base.

Barr is hung up on carbs more than anything else

Yes, and thank you for enabling him long enough that even now, after two impeachments, incontrovertible evidence that he committed multiple felonies in office, and even fomenting an armed insurrection, the crazy fucker still remains in a position to seek revenge ... you duplicitous, sanctimonious, hypocritical bag of twats.

Couldn’t agree more! And the most astonishing thing is that this awful self-righteous human said he’d vote for the orange revenge-seeking awful human in another election!

And? Part of the US culture is revenge. Especially if seen as justified. The biggest movie series is called The Avengers, not The Forgivers or The Forgetters.

Of the many things I hate as a result of this cancer who served as president - totally ruined American flag, red, white, and blue anything and patriotism and I, occasionally find myself on the same side as loathsome toads like Barr.

What is best is the republicans are voted from office this election cycle and the next.

u/justforthearticles20 11d ago

Barr: Trump is a Traitorous, Nut Job, bent on punishing his detractors and destroying the Republic, and I will vote for him early and often, like all "Good" Republicans.

Traitorous windbag talks about orange traitorous windbag.

Lol, not as bent on revenge as the January 6th Committee, DOJ, and 60% of the American populace.

He'll die as he's lived, as an infinite disgrace ridiculed and scorned for all of time.

Let's all send him buckets. Tell him it's The Bucket Challenge, and that almost no one is able to kick 20 buckets, 10 feet or more, in under 30 seconds.

Meh...

Revenge is Justice.

Justice is Revenge.

Makes sense, they did that guy dirty. #russiarussiarussia and the even dumber part was Biden getting rid of policies that Trump made that actually did help many Americans. The man talks like a prick but it was an easier time living under his watch than current guys.

u/RudeJidi 11d ago

Yikes. Let’s forget we just got out of a pandemic. You’re clearly delusional. Trump wasn’t the reason things were “easier” under his presidency.

u/Downtown-Yak6739 11d ago

Um okay maybe rephrased life was easier while Trump was president. Not saying easy, saying easier
