William Barr, who served as U.S. Attorney General under former President Donald Trump, has a memoir due to hit book stores this coming March. According to Barr's publishers, the book aims to be a “vivid and forthright” look into his time serving two “drastically different” presidents, Donald Trump and George H.W. Bush.
"Barr takes readers behind the scenes during seminal moments of the Bush administration in the 1990s, from the LA riots to Pan Am 103 and Iran Contra," William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, announced Tuesday. “With the Trump administration, Barr faced an unrelenting barrage of issues, such as Russiagate, the opioid epidemic, Chinese espionage, big tech, the COVID outbreak, civil unrest, the first impeachment, and the 2020 election fallout.”
According to ABC News, the title of the book, "One Damn Thing After Another," refers to an expression "Barr had heard about the nature of the job of attorney general." But others are finding the title to be an unintentional ironic take on Barr's tenure.
Quite the title!https://twitter.com/maggieNYT/status/1483478271505453064\u00a0\u2026— Andrew Desiderio (@Andrew Desiderio) 1642525871
On this, Bill Barr and I completely agree. I also would title a book about his tenure at the Justice Department "One Damn Thing After Another."\n\nBut with a slightly different subhed: "And Each More Gobsmackingly Corrupt Than The Last."https://www.amazon.com/dp/0063158604/ref=sr_1_1?crid=17E6G2TJC9QPC&keywords=bill+barr+one+damn+thing&qid=1642524604&sprefix=bill+barr+one+damn+thing%2Caps%2C49&sr=8-1\u00a0\u2026— Liz Dye (@Liz Dye) 1642524696
At first I thought this was a parody. Especially the title of the \u201cbook.\u201dpic.twitter.com/ov98VkWpOb— Don Keyhoty (@Don Keyhoty) 1642524790
He nabbed that title before DOJ reporters could claim it for their own memoirs of life on the beat. https://twitter.com/alex_mallin/status/1483467101574770695\u00a0\u2026— Sadie Gurman (@Sadie Gurman) 1642524277
Plotline: Bill Barr has to cover up for Trump's endless crime spree and make it look kosher. Going to read it for self-incriminating evidence. Will not be purchasing, however.pic.twitter.com/XaIPzX7VRK— GOP is still attempting to destroy democracy \u270d\ufe0f\ud83d\udc89 (@GOP is still attempting to destroy democracy \u270d\ufe0f\ud83d\udc89) 1642523267

The title really captures how we all felt watching him repeatedly capitulate to the unethical and illegal whims of his bosshttps://twitter.com/alex_mallin/status/1483467101574770695\u00a0\u2026— Robert Maguire (@Robert Maguire) 1642523890
Let me guess. Bill Barr trying to protect his \u2018legacy\u2019 by pointing the finger and everyone but himself. This should be the funniest book of 2022. I\u2019m afraid going to trip all over those puppet strings and hurt himself.https://twitter.com/maggienyt/status/1483478271505453064\u00a0\u2026— Jarlequin (@Jarlequin) 1642524031

Weird that he titled it after a phrase used to describe boring historical accounts that refuse to explain why things happen and who has agency.https://twitter.com/alex_mallin/status/1483467101574770695\u00a0\u2026— Peter A. Shulman \ud83d\udcda (@Peter A. Shulman \ud83d\udcda) 1642523347
