If you took the time to watch the House hearing with Attorney General Barr yesterday, you were probably just as shocked and appalled as we were. The Democrats were not there to accomplish anything of note. All they wanted to do was play the schoolyard bully role that they know and love. They behaved as poorly as you would have expected.
The Democrats were barely willing to allow the Attorney General to speak, talking over him at every turn. The insults that they were lobbing in his direction were also fairly ridiculous. This was not a fact finding mission. It was all about insulting the president and the Attorney General. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are hitting new lows.
She was not satisfied with the attacks that took place during the actual hearing, either. Once the hearing had concluded, Pelosi went straight to MSNBC to keep the smack talk going. This is what the party has devolved to. All they want to do is argue and throw insults around. Barr was referred to as a “blob” and this is the fat shaming that the liberals claim not to want.
Body shaming is bad, you guys, unless I’m trying to insult my political opponent and then it’s perfectly okay. These are the rules that the Democrats play by and we are about tired of it. Barr shouldn’t have to sit through hearings that are thinly veiled roasting sessions. He was also called a “henchman” by Pelosi.
Imagine what would happen if the Republicans decided to start throwing fat jokes around. The reaction would not be the same, that is for sure. Pelosi is also doubling down on the “storm trooper” rhetoric, comparing the Republican party to a group of Nazis in the process. According to her, Barr is the one who has “contempt for our democracy”.
The best part of all is that Pelosi even admitted that her work was keeping her from being able to watch the entire hearing. This did not stop her from offering up very strong opinions about what took place. “I just thought he was despicable and so beneath the dignity of an attorney general. I did tune in to hear certain questions that I had an interest in his answers, and they all related to upholding the Constitution of the United States. He fell very short in that regard. He is there to support the president, Donald Trump, no matter what,” Pelosi said.
In her mind, Barr is serving as a lawyer of sorts for Donald Trump. She even noted the fate of Michael Cohen, the man who was assigned to the task previously. It was almost like she was gloating about his legal issues but that’s not like the Democrats at all! They are never the type of gloat about the bad things that happen to people on the right side of the aisle.
All jokes aside, Pelosi’s actions are unconscionable. There’s no way that the Democrats would be willing to accept this behavior in reverse and we’re not sure why they expect their hypocrisy to go unnoticed. At this point, we are starting to wonder if Joe Biden’s senility is rubbing off on her. She does not seem well mentally.
These types of fights are only going to continue, especially now that both sides have to come together to create a new stimulus package. The pressure is on and to be frank, the people of America do not have the luxury of waiting for the Democrats to play nice. Unfortunately, this is the new normal that we are forced to deal with.
Barr was barely given the chance to get a word out before he was demonized by the Democrats who were actually on hand for the entirety of the proceedings. He was able to get a few retorts in, at least. Hopefully, the Democrats can find someone else to harass before the election starts.
