Someone also asked Barr a question like that. His reply was... telling.

Quote:

“Everything is gauged by politics,” he continued. “And, as I said, that’s antithetical to how the department runs, and any attorney general in this period is going to end up losing a lot of political capital, and I realize that and that’s one of the reasons that I was ultimately persuaded, that maybe I should take it on because I think that [at] my stage in life it really doesn’t make any difference.”

"I am at the end of my career," Barr, 69, said.

"Everyone dies, and I am not, you know, I don't believe in the Homeric idea that, you know, immortality comes by, you know, having odes sung about you over the centuries, you know?" he added.

It does increase the chances that Trump will be punished if/when he loses the election, though, doesn't it. I mean, he wouldn't have to worry that his dementia would be too far advanced by then.

I, for one, have not been pushing the dementia claim. That Trump has declined seems to be pretty obvious, but I haven't thought that dementia is at all clearly indicated. Malignant narcissism, on the other hand, does seem to be pretty clearly indicated. Malignant narcissism is also not a legal defense, though.

Look no further than the Oval Office

Sounds right for him.

Aridas 10th September 2020 11:51 AM

Couple pokes.

Just after Trump said he’d nominate him to Supreme Court, Tom Cotton states he’d kill Roe v. Wade

There's his pitch for the position.

The concept of regret might be as foreign to him as owning up to the idea that he lives in a make-believe world that makes up as he goes along.

Well, if he ever needs to raise money for a criminal defense, I’d be willing to pay $25 to watch a team of psychiatrists try to explain regret to him.

The weird thing about Barr is that he did seem to care about remaining a lawyer in good-ish standing. And now he no longer does. Barr does believe he's immortal, so he must be convinced God wants him to defend Trump against all accusers.

Just watched Trump's presser. It gets pretty interesting around the 57 min mark with the first question.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1NZJoAijZs

Basically, Woodward should have tattled on Trump earlier if it was such a big deal. Plus, Americans should be thanking Trump for lying to them.

Trump says

"I watched Liz McDonald. She's fantastic. I watched Fox Business. I watched Lou Dobbs last night, Sean Hannity last night, Tucker last night, Laura. I watched Fox & Friends in the morning."


When does he do any Presidenting?

That was one of the most pathetic excuses for an excuse I've ever seen. Trump has never learned that sometimes it's just better to not say anything at all. I've never seen anyone try so hard to prove what an idiot he is.

This is Donald "Stares Directly At The Eclipsing Sun" Trump.

Stacyhs 10th September 2020 02:11 PM

During the presser two other things that Trump lied about:

He said that Woodward said that "he didn't think that it was bad". Woodward confirmed that he never said that.

Trump claimed that these were very short phone calls. The list of the 19 calls show that there were almost 10 hours of phone calls. Many of them were unscheduled calls from Trump to Woodward.

The WH also claimed that Trump gave Woodward his cell phone. Woodward confirmed that is also not true.

Do we know how many people who go to Trump rallies are repeat offenders? That is, what percentage is "following the tour," vs. the percentage that goes just because Trump is showing up in their town?

Honestly, when you put it that way, it seems reasonable.

Trump doesn't really do moderation or nuance. He can either say there is no threat or it's deadly as sin. (Of course, choosing between those two options was based on political benefit, just as he has chosen to scream "Death!!" in other cases just for his own benefit.)

That's all they care about, the numbers. If 10,000 show up for Trump and, say, 50 or so die of Covid, that's fine with them. If 200 show up for Biden under precautions, and none get sick or die, that's shows Biden is a failure.

Jim Acosta is at the Michigan rally now and talked to a few of the attendees. One said he he isn't afraid of getting the virus because "the good Lord takes care of me. If I die, I die! We got to get this country moving!". Another said he doesn't believe the coronavirus is a problem at all and it won't affect him or his health at all. When Acosta pointed out that Trump told Woodward on the tape that the virus was deadly, that it's more dangerous than the seasonal flu the man said he still doesn't believe it's a problem but he believes the president.

On November 3rd, Michigan will decide whether we will quickly return to record prosperity—or whether we allow Sleepy Joe Biden to impose a $4 TRILLION DOLLAR TAX HIKE, ban American Energy, confiscate your guns, shutdown the economy, shutdown auto production, delay...

...the vaccine, destroy the suburbs, erase your borders, and indoctrinate your children with poisonous anti-American lies!

If Joe Biden is elected, far-left lunatics won’t just be running failed Dem Cities—they will be running the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, and the U.S. Supreme Court. No city, town or suburb will be safe. On November 3rd, your vote will SAVE AMERICA!

I saw a post here or elsewhere about how they feel that way. "It's alright, no need to be afraid of the virus, god will protect us." So why do you need your guns if god will protect you? "Crickets" Seems like a great question to just keep asking every time someone responds about god protecting them from the virus.
