MSNBC Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski questioned the physical and mental health of Attorney General William Barr, an incredibly disrespectful statement she would likely never have made about prior officeholders like Loretta Lynch or Eric Holder.
In a conversation about Barr’s summary of the Mueller report Wednesday, Brzezinski seemed to shrug off the fact that Barr is a well-respected legal professional with a long track record of public service who was confirmed by the U.S. Senate — the legislative branch — in a 54-45 vote.
“This is incredibly disturbing,” Brzezinski said on MSNBC. “This is the attorney general of the United States of America. I have been wondering for months, what is going on with him? Something doesn’t seem right. And now, we see it, laid out and in black and white. Robert Mueller put it to paper. He made it clear that there is something wrong going on here. And the attorney general, I’m not sure what his state of mind is or health or anything at this point, but I think he understands what it means to get a letter like that. And, yet, still, he continued to mislead the American people.”
