Former Trump Attorney General William Barr reportedly said that Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo has “lost it.” According to accounts from Jonathan Karl’s new book, Betrayal, Bartiromo called Barr after the 2020 election and shouted at him over imaginary voter fraud committed by Democrats. Barr said to Karl on the record, “she called me up and she was screaming. I yelled back at her. She's lost it.” This is quite the revelation by Trump’s former hatchet man. While Bartiormo has been a Trump sycophant on the Fox airwaves for years now, it was unclear whether she was acting this way genuinely or if she was merely playing a character like so many others in right-wing media. This phone call suggests that Maria actually has been fully radicalized into being a committed member in the cult of Donald Trump. This is a long fall from grace for someone who was once a respected journalist and the first woman to ever report live on television from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.
