(RoyalPatriot.com )- Former Trump Attorney General William Barr is making the rounds on television promoting his newly-released book “One Damn Thing After Another.” And on Monday morning, Barr told NBC’s Savannah Guthrie that if Trump ran again in 2024, he would vote for him.
Barr’s book, which is an account of his time in the Trump administration, has already prompted several angry responses from the former President unhappy with Barr’s criticism of his behavior after the 2020 election.
On Monday’s “Today Show,” Barr told Savannah Guthrie that he was “content” with the Trump administration until Trump “went off the rails” after losing the election. Barr explained that after the 2020 election, Trump refused to listen to anyone “except a little coterie of sycophants” who told Trump “what he wanted to hear.”
Barr told Guthrie that Trump’s post-election behavior “did a lot of damage.” In addition to citing Trump’s claim that the election was stolen, Barr also noted the damage from January 6, accusing Trump of rallying the crowd at the Capitol for “the clear purpose” of intimidating Mike Pence and Congress.
Guthrie asked Barr if he agreed with Congresswoman Liz Cheney’s assertion that Donald Trump should never be president again.
Barr reiterated what he wrote in his book that he doesn’t believe Trump should be the 2024 Republican nominee, telling Guthrie that he planned to support someone else in the primaries.
Unsatisfied with Barr’s response, Guthrie pressed on, asking him if Trump became the GOP nominee and Barr’s only choices are Trump or the Democrat nominee, would he vote for Trump?
Barr burst Guthrie’s bubble, telling her that the “greatest threat to the country” is the Democrat Party’s progressive agenda. He said it is “inconceivable to me that I wouldn’t vote for the Republican nominee.”
A crestfallen Guthrie pressed on, demanding to know why, when Trump “lied about the election and threatened democracy,” Barr would think he would be “better than a Democrat.”
Barr reiterated that he couldn’t conceive of voting for anyone but the Republican nominee.
