Attorney General William “Fu” Barr has downplayed his reputation and defending President Donald Trump in an interview with CBS News. In an interview reminiscent of Johnny Cash’s rendition of “Hurt” (“Everyone I know goes away in the end”), Barr stated he was not concerned about what he has done, stating: “I am at the end of my career. Everyone dies and I am not, you know, I don’t believe in the Homeric idea that you know, immortality comes by, you know, having odes sung about you over the centuries, you know?”
Barr continued: “They only care about who it helps, who benefits, whether my side benefits or the other side benefits, everything is gauged by politics. And as I say that’s antithetical to the way the department runs and any attorney general in this period is going to end up losing a lot of political capital and I realize that and that’s one of the reasons that I ultimately was persuaded that I should take it on because I think at my stage in life, it really doesn’t make any difference.”
Make no mistake, FuBarr is full of shit. Barr is literally the street sweeper who follows the GOP elephant in the parade of horribles. With his mission accomplished in this Mueller investigation, Barr’s legacy is simply this – twice in the last thirty years, Barr has come in and cleaned up his party’s shit, first in Iran-Contra, and now this. He literally auditioned for the role this time around with his 19-page memo to Trump about his views on the impossibility of a sitting (Republican) president doing any wrong that was actionable.
William Barr is now out there suggesting that he does not care how he’s remembered. However, history will remember him as FuBarr the Streetsweeper who tried to clean up the GOP elephant manure. His conduct as the highest legal officer who is supposed to serve the nation, not the occupant of the White House, is a shit stain on law and order that will not be cleansed anytime soon.
