Bill Barr and the harsh American reality: “I am very disappointed that this country is stuck with this choice”

New York – Nearly four years since President Biden took over the White House office, American voters face a similar set of choices as they did last time: Joe Biden and Donald Trump. The presidential race heats up, and Trump slightly leads Biden, according to aggregated results from 681 polls. However, one defining characteristic of the contest is that voters overall have little confidence in either candidate across a range of key traits. In the last few months, voters have repeatedly voiced their concerns about the poor choices they are given, and a former top politician recently confirmed this thesis in his comments on the candidates.

Bill Barr on Trump

Late last year, the ex-Attorney General Bill Barr mocked former President Donald Trump’s “verbal skills,” calling them “very limited.” Barr, who resigned from Trump’s cabinet in December 2020 over what he has called “bull****” election fraud claims by his then boss, went on to suggest that something that happened in the former president’s childhood may be to blame for his “fragile ego.” Although Barr has been very critical of Trump since parting ways with the former president, he has previously said that he wouldn’t rule out voting for Trump in the general election, even if he were to be convicted of a crime in one of the four criminal trials he’s facing.

The harsh American reality

Former Attorney General Bill Barr, who has often criticized Donald Trump since leaving his administration, recently addressed strong disapproval from Trump by reaffirming his support for him over President Biden, whom he views as “unfit” for the presidency.

“I think that Biden is unfit for office,” Barr told CNN anchor Kaitlan Collins. “I think Trump would do less damage than Biden, and I think all this stuff about a threat to democracy — I think the real threat to democracy is the progressive movement and the Biden administration,” he added.

Changing his mind with poor options

Since his resignation in 2020, Barr has been openly critical of Trump, even predicting that Trump’s return to the presidency could lead to “chaos” and a “horror show.” Despite these warnings, Barr now prefers to back Trump in an election against Biden, believing that Biden poses a greater risk to the nation. Barr’s comments once again put into perspective what most voters fear from both candidates: fitness for office, personal ethics and respect for democratic values.

Trump’s brutal response

“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 posted on Truth Social as soon as he heard the news that Barr plans to cast the vote for him. “Based on the fact that I greatly appreciate his wholehearted Endorsement, I am removing the word ‘Lethargic’ from my statement. Thank you Bill,” Trump wrote.

The least damage

“Classic Trump,” Barr responded with a laugh when Kaitlan Collins read Trump’s Truth Social post about him. “I am very disappointed that this country is stuck with this choice … I don’t think either of them should be president of the United States, but given that binary choice, I feel like I have to choose Trump.”

When Collins pressed how Barr could vote for a man who publicly mocked him, the former attorney general said it’s “not about me.” but rather who he felt would do “the least damage to the country.”
