Attorney General William Barr’s public rebuke of President Donald Trump for tweeting about ongoing criminal cases has led to a flurry of speculation about whether Barr is genuinely breaking with the president, or whether it was a planned PR stunt to keep mutinous DOJ officials in line.
But on Fox Business Thursday, pro-Trump host Lou Dobbs made clear what he thinks: As far as he’s concerned, Barr is a traitor to the country and a part of the Democrats’ anti-Trump cabal of bureaucrats if he just sits there and complains about the president’s behavior.
“[Trump] is keeping his promises that he made as a candidate for the office he holds,” said Dobbs. “He is also expressing himself fully, freely, and directly to the American people, without going through the sage intermediaries of the national left-wing media. And, you know, I guess I am so disappointed in Bill Barr, I have to say this. It’s a damn shame when he doesn’t get what this president has gone through, and what the American people have gone through, and what his charge is as attorney general.”
“And by God, if he’s going to complain … those are all things to complain about,” he continued. “Where the hell is the report? Where the hell are the indictments? Where the hell are the charges against the corrupt, the politically corrupt deep state within the Justice Department, the FBI, and why in the hell are we hearing apologies from someone in that rancid, corrupt department about what they permitted? Because they had to have neighbors by the dozens to pull off what they did. The 26 names that we can go through in the FBI and the Justice Department.”
“But then to hear this attorney general complain about this president, who’s fighting every one of those damn people to do the right thing and to get this country straightened out, and it’s his mission to do so, not to carp about his boss,” snarled Dobbs. “And by the way, I don’t want to hear any crap about an independent Justice Department! This Justice Department, as does every one, works for the president. It is part of the executive branch.”

‘Gaslighting on a massive scale’: Doctor warns Trump is lying us into a COVID disaster
On CNN Friday, Dr. Celine Grounder tore into President Donald Trump's ongoing falsehoods about the coronavirus pandemic.
"No matter how many times public health officials, especially like Anthony Fauci, speak the truth, what does it do, Doctor, when the president continues to lie to the public in face of a public health crisis?" asked anchor Kate Bolduan.
"This is gaslighting on an enormous scale, and means until people eventually get sick or their family members get sick, the communities hit hard, they won't believe it, and then it will be too late," said Grounder. "The problem is there's a lag period from the time that somebody's infected and starts to develop symptoms a couple days later. We don't see people get severely sick and need to be hospitalized and in ICUs until a week into disease, and talking about probably one to two weeks of lag time from the time somebody's exposed at least before you start to see hospitalizations and then another couple weeks before you start to see deaths."
Republicans ‘anxious’ as campaign aides observe ‘a sudden alertness’ in Trump that he is losing: report
Republican are growing increasingly worried about President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, according to a new report in Politico.
“I’d say Republicans are feeling anxious, and there’s a real sense of urgency for the president to precisely define his second term agenda. What are we running on? His answers on that have been lacking and he needs to show people why he wants four more years,” Scott Jennings, a top political adviser in the George W. Bush White House, told the publication.
Trump campaign spokesperson pushes Mt. Rushmore meme that adds president to monument
Would adding President Donald Trump to the famous Mt. Rushmore monument to four of America's greatest president's make it better?
A spokesperson and Trump re-election campaign "Rapid Response" official seems to think so.
Just hours before President Trump is set to travel to South Dakota's famous 60-foot tall 80-year old carving, Abigail Marone posted a widely-circulated meme of the 45th President's image, not only added to Mt. Rushmore, but in front of Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln.
