Bill Barr’s friends aren’t sure if he’s just a liar or delusional: ‘He’s been substantially influenced by right-wing media’
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough wondered what Attorney General William Barr's friends thought of his transformation into a right-wing crank.
The "Morning Joe" host said the attorney general has become the president's personal fixer -- as Trump attorneys Roy Cohn and Michael Cohen once had done -- and embraced conspiracy theories aimed at undermining the election, and Scarborough wondered what happened to the once-respected lawyer.
"He has all the money he wants," Scarborough said. "What do you think, what do some of his friends, former friends think about this guy who has savaged his reputation, lies willfully for the president of the United States, and sounds more like a bizarre right-wing blogger than the attorney general of the United States?"
Trump administration will ban TikTok and WeChat this weekend: Commerce Dept
The U.S. Commerce Department will ban Americans from downloading the Chinese owned apps TikTok and WeChat on Sunday, according to three officials.
The department's order is intended to “deplatform” the apps in the U.S. and prohibit Apple, Google and other companies from offering the apps on any platform "that can be reached from within the United States,” reported Reuters.
The ban could be rescinded before it goes into effect late Sunday as TikTok owner ByteDance tries to finalize a deal with Oracle to create a new company intended to address U.S. concerns over the security of user data.
