With each passing day, Attorney General William Barr becomes almost as absurd and utterly ridiculous as the president he so slavishly serves.

If you doubt that, consider what Barr told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo during an interview that aired Sunday.

Bartiromo asked the AG:

“A source said to me a couple of years ago, speaking of the Russia collusion story, that this was the closest the United States ever came to a coup to take down a president since the assassination of Lincoln. Is that an appropriate statement?”

Barr eagerly agreed with the absurd analogy:

“In this sense, I think it is the closest we have come to an organized effort to push a president out of office.”

Pardon my French, but that it utter bullshit! How in the world can anyone compare a legitimate investigation conducted by law enforcement to determine if American citizens were conspiring with Russia to the killing of a president? That’s the kind of skewed logic that leads a deranged acolyte to shoot up a pizza parlor because he’s heard its the headquarters for an international child trafficking ring. (Remember Pizzagate?) It’s also the kind of thing that serves no purpose but to stir up anger and division in the country. Hell, it’s very nearly an outright call for civil war.

William Barr is supposed to be the chief legal officer of the United States, not the personal attorney and cheerleader for the president. And yet the current head of the DOJ is nothing but a lapdog for a corrupt head of state who is trying to steer this country toward fascism and tyranny.

Since we’re making historical comparisons, here’s one the attorney general forgot to mention: Benedict Arnold and Donald Trump. Maybe we can explore the similarities and determine what’s to become of the current president after he leaves office.
