Attorney General William Barr opened up about his experience in his position so far and continued to defend President Donald Trump, saying he didn’t care about how the backlash affects his reputation because “everyone dies.”

Barr has been a target of heavy criticism from Democratic lawmakers (and one Republican) for his role in defending the president against the backlash of the Mueller report.

Despite criticism, the attorney general backed Trump yet again in an interview with “CBS This Morning” that aired Friday.

“I think one of the ironies today is that people are saying that it’s President Trump that’s shredding our institutions,” Barr said. “I really see no evidence of that, it is hard, and I really haven’t seen bill of particulars as to how that’s being done.”

Barr said that instead, the “shredding” of the United States’ institutions comes from criticism and investigations into the president.

As for the criticism of him, Barr remains unbothered.

“Everyone dies,” he said. “And I am not, you know, I don’t believe in the Homeric idea that you know, immortality comes by, you know, having odes sung about you over the centuries, you know?”

Watch the interview below:

Democratic lawmakers will definitely not sing odes to Barr. Many have accused Barr of acting as a “personal lawyer” for the president. Some Democratic presidential candidates even went as far as to suggest the attorney general should be impeached.

Most of the criticism is from Barr’s summary of the Mueller report that he released before the redacted report was made public. After the report was released, and after Special Counsel Robert Mueller subsequent public statement on the report, many accused Barr of mischaracterizing the results.

The Dumbocrats didn’t get what they wanted so it’s hissy fit time. Impeach away, Dumbos. Please don’t try to legislate because that is your purpose and no one cares about drug prices or infrastructure. What happened to all those Super O shovel-ready jobs?

The “many accused Barr of mischaracterizing the results,” would be EVERYONE that actually READ the Mueller report.

The ONLY “shredding” of our Constitution, our Rights, our freedoms and our future has come at the hands of those on the Left as they attempt to persuade their low-IQ base to vote for their Socialist “utopia” for POWER and CONTROL over every facet of our life.

Socialism would be so easy to vote IN; but we’d have to shoot our way OUT.

Trump was tearing apart the executive branch within the first few months of this nightmare term. He proceeded to undo everything and anything that Obama accomplished after only a few cabinet positions were filled with totally unqualified people with the goal of destroying those departments. He running the federal government like his businesses and we don’t want to go bankrupt.
