Democrats decided to throw themselves under a bus on Tuesday by bringing in Attorney General Bill Barr to be questioned about what’s going on in Portland and the federal response.

What of course they don’t get is how much that puts a spotlight on the riots that they’ve been trying to cast as “peaceful protests.” They gave Barr and Republicans the opportunity to make House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler and Democrats look like fools and have Americans watch them essentially taking the side of violent rioters against federal agents who have been under attack.

Barr was just doing a Mexican hat dance all over Jerry Nadler.

Meanwhile Nadler kept melting down, such as when he lost it about people not wearing masks, when he wasn’t even wearing a mask himself, as we reported earlier. Plus as I reported on Monday, he was caught in D.C. not wearing one outside when he also unbelievably also called Antifa violence a myth.

Rep. Doug Collins asked Barr a great question.

“Do you think that this body would rise up if they decided to go tonight and paint the Capitol building?”

BARR: “This body? I’m not sure.”

Ouch, that’s going to sting. Beast mode. But so true.

They’ve completely denied the reality of what has been going on, for purely political reasons to try to attack the president as overreacting. “People will do what they do,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said about people ripping down statues from George Washington to Abraham Lincoln. Yet there are still radical rioters attacking multiple cities across the country. What has been the reaction of Democrats? Deny, deny, deny, even call the federal agents having to deal with it “storm troopers,” in the words of Pelosi.

In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if some Democrats opened the doors and invited the rioters into the Capitol. But fortunately, the U.S. Capitol Police would stop them.

Gotta love Barr and his facial expressions say it for all of us about this farce of a hearing.
