It is no longer peaceful in paradise. Donald Trump is livid with the attorney general who has been his dream AG — until now. But would the temporary president dump AG Barr with only 48 days left before he walks out the door and does a reverse Cinderella, turning into a citizen once again? Maybe, and here is why.
Trump came out of hiding and took a few questions from reporters on Thursday. This was one of the first times he has taken questions from reporters, since he lost his election a month ago. The president was not willing to admit that he still was confident in AG Barr. Instead, he dodged the question and said, according to The Business Insider:
‘Ask me that in a number of weeks from now. [The Department of Justice] should be looking at all of this fraud. This is not civil. He thought it was civil. This is criminal stuff.’
POTUS has been enraged that his man Barr did not back him on his fantasy voter fraud tour. Then, AG Barr told The Associated Press that his department and the FBI had not found any “evidence of widespread voter fraud in the election.”
When, the AG did so, it cut all the air out of the tires on Trump’s victim tour bus. The president still claimed that the race was “stolen from him” by the Democrats, but this is no longer a smooth ride.
NBC‘s Kristen Welker asked the president what he thought of Barr now. He replied:
‘Ask me that in a number of weeks from now.’
Another problem Trump has had with his AG is that Barr never delivered on finding how the Russia investigation got its start. The president claimed that something smelled there. He more than likely wanted to find a way to throw President Barack Obama and President-elect Joe Biden into jail, which would have been sweet revenge for him.
Barr took an ABC News interview that Trump heard. The AG must have known he was in big trouble when he was called to the White House. The meeting was “intense.”
The Business Insider reported earlier, that Trump’s top cybersecurity man called this the “safest and most secure [election] in US history:”
‘[The states using] paper ballots and voting machines with verifiable paper trails. But Trump insisted on Thursday that the race was plagued by fraud and electoral malfeasance.’
After losing 39 of the current 40 lawsuits against states for voter fraud, it would appear that the president and his fixer Rudy Giuliani might wind their campaign down. But they still appear to be wound up tight.
