Attorney General Bill Barr, who has become an enemy of the left via his association with President Donald Trump, has a fairly good understanding of the power of his actions.
He’s a man who can talk the talk and walk the walk, and you needn’t look any further than his testimony before Congress for proof. His cunning, sometimes wily answers to the left’s brutally obtuse questioning was pure and true snark, but with the goods to back it all up. Barr is the real deal, and he’s not afraid to toy with you for a bit before he lays you down for good, like a house cat batting a doomed mouse around.
So don’t think for a second that Barr wasn’t purposefully trying to trigger the far left today when he suddenly ordered his motorcade to stop and turn around.

Nationwide protests have, for months, targeted police departments far and wide, as Americans decry the behaviors of officers in a number of police brutality cases.
They say not to let a few bad apples spoil the bunch, however, and as the nation’s top cop, Bill Barr has a pretty good view of the orchard.
