Tales from the Swamp: Featuring Trump's Favorite Toady Bill Barr

Good Day World!

It's ironic watching the swamp grow in Washington DC, as Trump's toxic policies and deeds foul our society.

Just a little over three years ago, Trump convinced gullible voters he would "clean out the swamp" in Washington politics. 

The reality is Trump created the mother of all swamps, and it's getting deeper by the day.


Tales from the Swamp

This installment we're going to take a look at one of Trump's favorite toadies... Attorney General Bill Bar.

He's been making waves in the algae lately by ignoring DOJ regulations and openly siding with Trump against his own department's decisions.

When Barr recently overrode a recommendation by DOJ prosecutor's for Roger Stone to serve between 7-9 years in prison it was the straw that broke the camel's back.

More than 2,000 ex-DOJ employees have called for his resignation in response to Barr's overt interference. When her saw Trump tweeted about how unfair the sentence was to his long-time buddy Stone, Barr intervened and called for a shorter sentence. 

Meanwhile, Barr has been a busy little toad, conducting backroom investigations to exonerate other Trump associates like former national security advisor Mike Flynn.

Barr's unswerving loyalty to Trump was evident when he managed to suppress - and spin - the redacted Mueller report.

He gave Trump's legal team a head's up, and then held a press conference where he offered an alternate reality defense to the public. 

Barr managed to slime Mueller's report so effectively even the Democrats gave up trying to undo the damage and moved on to the Ukraine scandal.

As a top toadie, Barr has managed to steer Trump through the swamp safely every time he's been threatened with legal issues, and even impeachment.


Qualifications for Swamp Dwellers


1. Willingness to lie for Trump
2. Undying loyalty to his "Trumpness"
3. Must not have a conscience

Needless to say, Barr has passed the bar, and earned his place in the swamp.

 Time for me to walk on down the road...
