MSNBC analyst bluntly nails AG Bill Barr for his Trump-defending press conference: ‘He just lied’

Published

on

MSNBC national affairs analyst John Heilemann laid into Attorney General William Barr on Friday’s edition of “Deadline: White House,” in the wake of the Mueller report’s release largely discrediting Barr’s four-page summary painting President Donald Trump in a misleadingly positive light.

“I really would like for people to stop saying that Barr ‘spun’ or ‘mischaracterized.’ He just lied about a lot of stuff,” said Heilemann. “He really just told a variety of lies about what was in the report.”

“They contradicted exactly what Mueller said, and some of them were so brazen,” Heilemann continued. “They weren’t just lies, the brazenness of the lies.”

Host Nicolle Wallace agreed, noting as an example that Barr insisted at Thursday’s press conference Mueller’s lack of a criminal finding against Trump wasn’t related to the Office of Legal Counsel’s prosecutorial jurisdiction ruling (he wrote directly in the report that he had).

“I mean that’s black and white,” said Heilemann.

"The View" erupted into a shouting match over President Donald Trump's racist smears of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and other Democratic congresswomen, even though all the panelists seemed to agree his remarks were abhorrent.

Co-hosts Ana Navarro and Sunny Hostin blasted "self-righteous hypocrite" Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for defending the president's comments, and Meghan McCain challenged Democrats to defeat Trump for re-election.

"This is so bad," McCain said. "It's like nothing I have ever seen, and I don't think anyone in this room has ever seen before, and if you can't beat this, this blatant racism, what does this say about your party?"
