Bill Barr's Odd Defense For Not Suing Trump's Kids Is Basically An Insult

Donald Trump’s former Attorney General Bill Barr doesn’t think the former president’s kids should have been included in the lawsuit filed Wednesday by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

But his rationale, as he explained it to Fox News on Wednesday, was an oddly patronizing defense that was an insult to Donald Trump Jr., 44, Ivanka Trump, 40, and Eric Trump, 38.

James’ suit accuses Donald Trump and his family of engaging in real estate business practices that routinely undervalued and overvalued assets to avoid paying taxes.

But even though the Trumps’ business practices have been under investigation for years, Barr told Fox News that the charges were a “political hit job” that was without merit.

Will hopefully be when the mango shitbag turns on his “kids” and Jr ends up in a cabin holding himself hostage with a high powered rifle and a bag of coke, princess jetting off to a Middle East country with Ja-rod and Poor Eric caught on this shitter with his finger in his nose while his harpy wife rails on about deep state on fuxnewz.

HE deems above the law are above the law. He is a failed American and a corrupt lawyer who should never help any corrupt politicians keep office ever again. The only thing keeping him from losing his law license is that the current DOJ and investigative bodies are too swamped with enforcing the law because of crime enablers like him.

Barr himself is an indefensible insult to the rule of law.

My cynical outlook: TFG had Ivanka undergo a rhinoplasty, cheekbones, chin and boob enhancement with the goal that one day, he'd be accused (and by association with him, Ivanka) of something, and the unspoken assumption would be "Oh, she's just too cute to have done that."
