Donald Trump's Attorney General and hatchet man William Barr went on CNN for an interview with Wolf Blitzer. Barr did his best to back up Trump’s claims that the mail-in voting system cannot be trusted. He said that he suspects foreign countries to meddle in the election, perhaps by submitting large numbers of counterfeit ballots. When Blitzer asked the Attorney General to provide evidence for his claims, Barr didn’t have any. He just said “logic” which isn’t an argument and Blitzer was dumbfounded by the idiocy.
Later in the interview, Blitzer brought up the fact that five states vote exclusively by mail already, including the Republican state of Utah. Barr could not rebut this point and explain why it’s okay for those states to vote by mail but not others. He brought up the divisiveness and unrest in the country as a reason to stop vote-by-mail. Barr doesn’t care about countless people across the country who may be forced to expose themselves to coronavirus, he just wants to make sure his boss wins reelection at all costs.
