Donald Trump fired his first Attorney General (AG) Jeff Sessions, because the AG would not defend him against the Mueller Investigation. His current AG William Barr has traveled the globe trying to find evidence to take the heat away from Russia’s proven interference in the 2016 presidential election. Yet, POTUS is very unhappy with Barr this morning.
Yesterday, news leaked that there was finally something so wrong that even Barr would not obey Trump orders. The commander-in-chief asked his AG to hold a news conference and tell the world that the president was free of crime. In other words, what Barr did in the Mueller investigation. The AG said no.
It meant that AG Barr would have had to stake his reputation on an obvious lie for POTUS. The president started off his morning tweets with a declaration that his attorney general did not refuse to take his request to hold that press conference. He called it “a fake Washington Post con job:”
‘Bill Barr did not decline my request to talk about Ukraine. The story was a Fake Washington Post con job with an “anonymous” source that doesn’t exist. Just read the Transcript. The Justice Department already ruled that the call was good. We don’t have freedom of the press!’
Twitter world took off. Look at these favorites below:
