Former Attorney General Bill Barr just stated that he is so actively opposing Donald Trump’s candidacy that should he win the GOP presidential nomination and face President Joe Biden in a rematch, he’d “jump off” a bridge.

Barr’s comments were the result of an NBC News survey of former members of Trump’s cabinet and whether they would support his return to the White House.

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

Who Else Besides Barr Will Jump Off A Bridge?

The NBC News report is part of a larger story indicating a vast majority of people that Trump gave the privilege of serving in high-ranking positions are either too cowardly to say they’d endorse him or flat-out oppose his nomination.

Former Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney expressed that he would not support Trump as the GOP nominee because he believes he’s the only candidate who would be guaranteed to lose to Biden.

“I am working hard to make sure that someone else is the nominee,” Mulvaney revealed. “I think he’s the Republican who is most likely to lose in a general election, of all our leading candidates. If anyone can lose to Joe Biden, it would be him.”

Mulvaney, of course, tucked tail and ran after the Capitol riot, resigning from the administration where he was serving as U.S. envoy to Northern Ireland because he just “can’t do it.”

In all, just four former members of Trump’s cabinet voiced their support for his 2024 presidential bid – former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, former budget chief Russell Vought, and former acting director of national intelligence, Richard Grenell.

As for the cowardice of Bill Barr, Trump has previously referred to it by calling his former Attorney General a “gutless pig.”

Trump’s ire was raised by the fact that Barr had suggested that if even a fraction of the counts stick in the classified document indictment, then the former president is in some serious trouble.

“If even half of it is true, he is toast,” Barr asserted. “I mean, it’s a very detailed indictment, and it’s very, very damning.”

Trump responded by calling Barr a “disgruntled former employee” and a “lazy” Attorney General in a post on his Truth Social  Media platform.

Trump was hit with additional charges in the special counsel’s classified records probe late last week.

Barr has urged Republicans in the past to pivot away from Trump as a candidate, shaken by the relatively tame events surrounding the Capitol riot of 2021.

“The election was not ‘stolen,’ Trump lost it,” he wrote in his book, urging the GOP to move on from Trump and his “erratic personal behavior” in 2024.

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.”

At the time of this writing, Trump has yet to respond to Barr’s latest comments.
