Speaking of TV performances, William Barr appeared before the House Judiciary Committee where he defended the use of federal forces in Portland. “We are concerned about this problem metastasizing around the country. And so we feel that we have to, in a place like Portland where we don’t have the support of the local government, we have to take a stand and defend this federal property. We can’t get to a level where were going to accept these kinds of violent attacks on federal courts.” (I think we all know who’s been doing the attacking of federal courts over the past year. What we need to do is stop the metastasization of bullshit coming from the administration.)
