Barr Endorses Trump; Trump Mocks Barr (Video)

(StraightShooterNews.com) – Despite receiving Bill Barr’s full endorsement for the upcoming presidential election, former President Donald Trump has taken a swipe at his former Attorney General.

Watch the video below.

Trump’s response revives previous criticisms where he labeled Barr as someone who “let a lot of great people down by not investigating Voter Fraud in our Country.”

Once a close Trump ally, Barr fell out of favor after he disputed Trump’s claims about widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election.

Recently, Barr revealed he would support the “Republican ticket,” stating on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” that although he had disagreements with Trump in the past, he would support him over Joe Biden.

“I’ve said all along, given two bad choices, I think it’s my duty to pick the person I think would do the least harm to the country. And in my mind, I will vote the Republican ticket,” he said.

He also added that “Trump may be playing Russian roulette, but a continuation of the Biden administration is national suicide in my opinion.”

Barr also criticized the Biden administration’s embrace of the extreme left, stating, “I think that they have a totalitarian temper. They have bought into the progressive movement. And they’re trying to squelch opposition and freedom of speech.”

“It’s a heavy-handed bunch of thugs in my opinion, and that’s where the threat is,” he concluded.

Trump responded to Barr’s endorsement with mixed feelings on Truth Social. While he seemed pleased with the support, he did not pass up the chance to mock Barr by reminding his followers of his past statements.

“Wow! Former A.G. Bill Barr, who let a lot of great people down by not investigating Voter Fraud in our Country, has just Endorsed me for President despite the fact that I called him ‘Weak, Slow Moving, Lethargic, Gutless, and Lazy’ (New York Post!),” Trump stated.

In a turn of apparent gratitude, Trump decided to continue joking, saying: “Based on the fact that I greatly appreciate his wholehearted Endorsement, I am removing the word ‘Lethargic’ from my statement. Thank you Bill. MAGA2024!”
