(TheConservativeTimes.org) – In the latest attack on former President Donald Trump by a former member of his administration, former Attorney General Bill Barr said that Trump is a “consummate narcissist” on CBS News’s “Face the Nation” on June 18.
The former attorney general said that Trump always prioritized his interests over anything else, saying that he “constantly engages in reckless conduct,” which also puts his supporters and the Republican Party’s agenda at risk.
The news comes as former Trump White House Chief of Staff John Kelly also criticized the former president in a recent interview with The Washington Post, saying that Trump is “scared sh*tless” of being held responsible for his alleged crimes in the latest criminal indictment by the Department of Justice.
Like Kelly’s criticisms of Trump, Barr called the former president a “petty individual” who loves the “gratification of his own ego.”
Barr has also previously decried the former president on “Fox News Sunday,” saying that attempting to portray Trump as a victim of a witch hunt is “ridiculous,” and that the charges against him are “damning.”
Barr has admitted in the past that Trump has been the victim of political antics and has defended Trump on numerous occasions in the face of “phony claims” from those in the Democratic Party. This, however, according to Barr, is not one of those times.
Trump has pleaded not guilty to the 37 felony counts related to the mishandling and illegal storage of classified documents. This marks his second criminal indictment following Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s indictment for falsifying business records in New York.
The charges that Trump faces are dire and are most likely the biggest threat to his 2024 presidential campaign. The former president may face decades in federal prison if convicted.
