Like everyone else in this country, Jimmy Kimmel is tryingto figure out what Bill Barr is up to. Speaking to ABC News on Thursday, theattorney general complained very publicly that Trump’s tweeting about theJustice Department – specifically, prosecutors’ sentencing recommendation forTrump crony Roger Stone – is “making my job impossible.”  

Rather than barking and snarling at Barr, Trump hardly responded at all.

Kimmel remains skeptical that Barr’s statement was a candidcritique rather than a publicity stunt. Knowing how enraged Trump becomeswhenever a subordinate dares to disagree with him, the comic observes that ifBarr had really unloaded on ABC without Trump’s collusion,  “he’d be covered in tweet vomit right now, he’dbe covered in little orange fist marks all over his face.”

We agree with Kimmel on the message that Barr actually meant to send. How can he do Trump’s dirty work if the president exposes their scam on Twitter?

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki and Fox News' Peter Doocy

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki ended the week with yet another smack down of Peter Doocy, as the Fox News reporter admitted there are Republicans who "don't agree with voting rights."

"As you talked about a year ago and working with Republicans, now [President Biden] is talking about Republicans that don't agree with voting rights," Doocy complained, "he's describing them as George Wallace, Bull Connor, and Jefferson Davis. What happened to the guy who, when he was elected said: 'To make progress me must stop treating our opponents as our enemy'?"
