‘Barr is a toady’: Jeffrey Toobin says talk of attorney general resigning is ‘just a big show’

Published

on

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin says he doesn’t believe Attorney General William Barr when he claims he considered resigning from the Trump administration.

Sources close to Barr told ABC News that the attorney general had contemplated quitting because President Donald Trump’s tweets make it difficult for him to do his job.

“Barr is a toady,” Toobin explained during an appearance on CNN. “Barr is doing what he’s told. He had this one statement, ‘Oh, whoa is me, it’s hard for me to do my job when the president tweets.'”

“But do you see him doing anything?” he continued. “Is he going to resign? No way. He is doing the president’s bidding. He’s reviewing all of [former special counsel Robert Mueller’s] convictions, he is going outside the norms of how the Justice Department is supposed to behave in line with the president’s wishes.”

“So, I think all of this resigning is just a big show to make him look more independent than he actually is,” Toobin remarked.

Even evangelical groups were disgusted by Trump’s Bible stunt: former White House faith adviser

Published

on

On CNN Tuesday, former Obama White House faith and race adviser Joshua Dubois said President Donald Trump's Bible photo-op in front of the church near the White House could backfire on him with his most critical voting bloc.

"I thought it was farcical. And it is kind of blowing up in his face even in the faith community and communities that support, him like some conservative evangelical communities," said Dubois. "The reason is Jesus stood up for everyday people, including the vulnerable, and didn't believe in false displays of piety, and yesterday President Trump ordered — or was okay with — everyday people being gassed and shot with rubber bullets in order to make his way to a false display of piety."
