Attorney General Bill Barr told ABC News on Thursday that the President Trump’s tweets “make it impossible for me to do my job,” in an out-of-character jab at the president – but critics on the left have dismissed the comment as a calculated move.
New York Times columnist David Leonhardt asked if Barr’s comment was “just a performance” in a piece published Friday. Leonhardt said there are “two plausible explanations for William Barr’s surprising criticism of President Trump,” the first being the literal one.
The article goes on to state the following:
Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin seemed to think Barr was sincere but called his comment an “outburst” that “means little if he does not actually stand up to Trump” before quoting “unimpressed” former prosecutor Mimi Rocah.
CNN host Chris Cuomo said Barr’s comment was a “whack at the boss” but doubted its sincerity.
“Such defiance, such that, I have to suspect that punch is a ploy,” Cuomo said. “Distract the media with the drama while ignoring the fact that the explanation from Barr about how it happened here with [Roger] Stone.”

Trump telling Barr what to do about this sentence or Barr just having Trump’s interests so far in front of anything else that he didn’t need to be told even if it meant undoing a sentence recommendation that his guys OK’d?” pic.twitter.com/7zcGLgU9E6

“I call buts***,” said Jon Copper, chairman of the Democratic Coalition.
I call bullshit. What Bill Barr REALLY means is that Trump’s tweets saying the quiet part out loud are making it harder for him to do the crimes and cover-up. So speaketh the #CoverupGeneral. https://t.co/x8vkBJ9tGr
