    This will be interesting as Barr was Bush 41’s AG. Though he’s said some critical things about the Mueller probe so #MAGA crowd will probably love him. Not sure what qualifies Heather Nauert to be UN Ambassador though.

    He likely agreed with Trumpolini on some things*.

    *Things completely unrelated to his job at the UN of course.

    The same thing that qualifies Jared Kushner to be a senior advisor - nothing.

    Not sure the news matters since Trump is off being Trump on twitter...

    He's qualified and better than the basket case throne sniffer he appointed as the interim...

    Though, given how Trump tweeted.. I mean treated... Sessions, I have to automatically question anyone who would accept the position under Trump, who is mentally deficient enough to think the attorney general is the President's personal attorney.

    You're clearly trolling this morning. As you know - there wasn't a landslide win. Oh yes - go and talk about the electoral college. It's a pretty dishonest argument given that the margins in many of those states were tiny. No one should be trying to pass off the idea that the majority of the US wanted or wants Trump President. It's simply not true. Not even with Trump boasting about an approval rating that at MOST is 50%. But often well below it.

    He won. No need to regurgitate his rhetoric.

    A contradiction in a single sentence, must be some sort of record.

    About that landslide, here's some real news (based on actual numbers, not opinion with zero basis in fact): Donald Trump has lost popular vote by greater margin than any US President

    As for this new AG, none of them are going to touch Mueller with a 10 ft pole at this point. Everyone (except for Trump) wants it to play out.

    Whomever PDT picks will never be the right person no matter how qualified. The Dems have so spoken through act and indication. The GOP is fragmented and act like bickering children.
    As a result we have a Government that is unable and incapable of getting anything done.
    Can we just mow Washington DC and start fresh?

    Wasn't Barr the youngest AG in history at the time?

    I don't know. Barr seems "ok" - but there's some sketchy stuff about his opinion on the Mueller investigation and Trump's behavior toward Comey that give me pause.
