Former Attorney General Bill Barr declared that he would now support Donald Trump in the upcoming presidential election.

His stunning transformation comes just months after stating he’d “jump off” a bridge if there is a rematch between the former and current President.

Speaking with Fox News host Neil Cavuto, Barr said that he doesn’t like having to choose between his former boss and President Biden, but at the end of the day, it’s Trump’s policies that are better for America.

“I was fine with his policies. I think his policies were good policies,” Barr said of his time serving in Trump’s administration. “My problems came with his behavior, which I found very troubling after the election.”

It sounds like somebody finally grew up. Pro-America policies greatly outweigh outlandish behavior. Guiding the nation through troubling times greatly outweighs personally hurt feelings from mean tweets.

Barr Will Support Trump, Better For The Country

Barr proceeded to state the obvious: that the Biden administration is burdened by a “totalitarian temper.”

“They have bought into the progressive movement,” he said. “And they’re trying to squelch opposition and freedom of speech.”

Barr defined the Biden administration as clearly the “greater threat to democracy” and noted that it consists of “a heavy-handed bunch of thugs in my opinion.”

Cavuto pointed to some of Barr’s previous negative statements regarding Trump, in which he said rigged election claims are false and blamed his words for inciting the January 6th riot at the Capitol.

The Fox host reminded Barr that he said that Trump “shouldn’t be anywhere near the Oval Office.”

“I don’t think Biden should be anywhere near the Oval Office, that’s the fact,” he fired back.

The comments come one week after the former attorney general hinted that he would “support the Republican ticket.”

“Trump may be playing Russian roulette but a continuation of the Biden administration is national suicide in my opinion,” Barr added.

Barr Said He’d ‘Jump Off A Bridge’

None of this is new information, as President Joe Biden has been the greater threat to democracy since he set foot in the Oval Office.

Yet somehow, Barr has wildly transformed his view of the coming election.

In an NBC News survey of former members of Trump’s cabinet, Barr was clear that he would not support the former President’s return to the White House.

“I have made clear that I strongly oppose Trump for the nomination and will not endorse Trump,” Barr previously said.

When asked what he might do if Trump wins the nomination and takes on Biden again in 2024, he injected a bit of humor with a play on words.

“I’ll jump off that bridge when I get to it,” Barr quipped.

It seems instead that Barr just came to his senses. Trump is the presumptive nominee. It’s now time to choose the better leader, and he knows it.

Trump has referred to Barr as “slow, lethargic,” and accused him of being more interested in “being accepted by the corrupt Washington Media and Elite than serving the American people.”

Barr was certainly slow in recognizing who the bigger threat to this nation is and has been.
