Donald Trump is no stranger to facing opposition from RINOs. His existence in the political space has exposed these RINOs because they can’t help but attack the former President.
And now this Republican attorney said five words about Donald Trump that has all hell breaking loose.
William Barr has long been a controversial character in Republican and conservative circles.
During his time serving the Trump administration, there were certainly times when he would defend Trump well against the attacks of the radical Left and the Fake News Media.
Then there were other times when he would go full Never-Trump mode for seemingly no reason.
Sadly, it seems Barr has let the Trump Derangement Syndrome take over as of late if his latest comments are any indicator.
In a new op-ed Barr has taken to putting Trump on blast for seemingly no reason and only fueling the fires of the radical Left who are obsessed with seeing Trump behind bars.
Barr demanded a new Republican Party leader on Monday, threatening that former President Trump “will burn the whole house down” in a scathing denunciation.
Barr wrote a blistering op-ed that appeared in the New York Post on Monday. “Unless the rest of the party goes along with him, he will burn the whole house down by leading ‘his people’ out of the GOP,” Barr wrote.
“Trump’s willingness to destroy the party if he does not get his way is not based on principle, but on his own supreme narcissism,” he continued. “His egoism makes him unable to think of a political party as anything but an extension of himself — a cult of personality.”
Barr’s remarks come after the 2022 midterm elections, in which it was predicted that Republicans would experience a “red wave” and gain significant control of the House. Before the midterm elections, certain surveys indicated that Republicans stood a decent chance of winning the Senate.
Nevertheless, Democrats retained control of the Senate, and even while the GOP did take over the House, the final margin was far narrower than expected.
Following his departure from Trump’s government in December 2020, Barr has started to frequently criticize his former boss.
Regarding the Mar-a-Lago documents issue, Barr has likewise distanced himself from Trump and the rest of the GOP.
Barr has repeatedly refuted Trump’s claims that the FBI’s search of the Palm Beach, Florida, property resulted in the recovery of sensitive and secret documents.
The former attorney general has referred to his belief in Trump’s assertions that he declassified the documents as “skepticism.” Barr challenged the court’s choice to appoint a special master in the case, claiming that there was “no justification” for seizing the records from the White House.
Barr noted in a Friday interview that there is probably “a basis for legitimately indicting” Trump for his handling of the classified information by the Justice Department.
Barr praised the “substantive achievements” of the Trump administration in his op-ed, which was published on Monday, but he also stated that he thought it was “time for new leadership.”
“It is painfully clear from his track record in both the 2020 election and the 2022 midterms that Donald Trump is neither capable of forging this winning coalition nor delivering the decisive and durable victory required,” Barr said.
“Indeed, among the current crop of potential nominees, Trump is the person least able to unite the party and the one most likely to lose the general election,” he added.
Bill Barr is maybe trying to play the “right side of history” game here siding with the Never-Trump radicals. If he is, he might want to reconsider his chess pieces, because the Never-Trumpers don’t have a great track record.
