‘They’re Doubling Down on Stupid’: Lara Trump Calls Out Dems for Trying to Hold Barr in Contempt

The president’s 2020 campaign senior adviser and daughter-in-law Lara Trump is swiping back at Democrats for going after anyone who says anything positive about President Donald Trump.

House Democrats are looking to make moves toward voting to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress after he didn’t hand over the full, unredacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report last week, as IJR News reported, they announced on Monday.

The committee Democrats said Barr’s failure to comply “hindered the committee’s constitutional, oversight and legislative functions,” they wrote in a report.

“The attorney general’s failure to comply with our subpoena … leaves us no choice but to initiate contempt proceedings,” committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said in response.

During Monday’s interview with Fox News, Trump tore into congressional Democrats for the move.

“They’re doubling down on stupid,” Trump bluntly said, echoing a statement made by Senator John Kennedy.

“This is just more of the same when you look at what’s going on with the Democrats,” she added. “No matter who comes out and says something positive about this president, they are going to get attacked, and they are going to get inundated by the Democrats.”

The president’s daughter-in-law called it an example of “Trump derangement syndrome.”

She added:

“[…] It’s funny now that he came out and stated the facts that we all saw in the Mueller report, which is that there was no collusion with Russia when it came to the president or our campaign. Now, all of a sudden is the target of the Democrats because they’re obsessed with finding anything they to try to smear this president and anyone who is on his side.”

Watch the video below:

Democrats have continued to hound Barr following the release of Mueller’s 22-month-long investigation report — which resulted in Barr not charging the president with obstruction of justice.

While Mueller’s report didn’t conclude collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign and the Russian government, it didn’t fully exonerate Trump on obstruction. The committee will decide on Wednesday whether or not to move toward a contempt citation.

Hillary. Mueller.

Notice how they are obsessed with tearing down and not building up. Has a single one mentioned a plan to help American citizens make and keep more of their own money? (not including freebies)

Smarter persons would have alternate or side bets. Or they’d have the self-awareness and discipline to walk away. However we’re talking about politicians and especially Dimocrats.


They are desperate and horrible gamblers. They bet on Hillary, then the Mueller report. Both losses.

Ever see a desperate loser continue to bet long after his original stake is gone? I have. This is ALL the Left has to cling to. They’ve already put everything in short of organs. q.v. offered donations to Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
