Donald Trump Slams Former Attorney General Bill Barr for Saying His Verbal Skills Are 'Limited'
Former President Donald Trump and his former attorney general, Bill Barr, have been involved in a heated exchange of words after Barr criticized Trump's verbal skills in a public forum last week. In response, Trump took to his social media platform, Truth Social, to suggest that Barr was 'seeking revenge' for his tough stance during his Presidency, reported The Hill.
Barr's comments came during an event at The University of Chicago's Institute of Politics, where a moderator asked him about Trump's recent outbursts and questioned if the former president was 'losing it.' In response, Barr criticized Trump's 'limited verbal skills,' stating, "If you get him [Trump] away from ‘very, very, very,’ you know, the adjectives... they’re unfamiliar to him, and they spill out, and he goes too far. He's not very disciplined when it comes to what he says."

In apparent retaliation, Trump went on to list a string of insults for Barr, calling him 'Dumb, Weak, Slow Moving, Lethargic, Gutless, and Lazy' and labeling him as a 'RINO,' which stands for 'Republican in Name Only.' Not only that, Trump also accused Barr of not wanting to be impeached, which Trump claimed the 'Radical Left Lunatics' were preparing to do. “I was tough on him in the White House, for good reason, so now this Moron says about me, to get even, ‘his verbal skills are limited,’” the former President continued.

This is not the first time the two men have publicly criticized each other since the end of Trump's term in the White House. Trump has continuously attacked Barr for not taking action on his claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election despite there being no evidence to support these claims. Barr, on the other hand, has become one of Trump's most vocal critics within the GOP, often refuting his baseless allegations of voter fraud.

Barr has also stated that Trump is unfit to serve as President in 2024, describing the businessman's thinking as a 'horror show,' as per USA Today. During a City Club of Cleveland luncheon in May, Barr said, "If you believe in his policies, what he's advertising is his policies, he's the last person who could actually execute them and achieve them. He does not have the discipline, he does not have the ability for strategic thinking and linear thinking or setting priorities or how to get things done in the system."
Donald Trump might have broken Judge Tanya Chutkan's gag order just 75 minutes after it was reinstated: Trump attacked his former attorney general — and potential witness — Bill Barr on his failed social media site.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) October 30, 2023
The gag order prohibits Trump from targeting witnesses.
It is clear that the feud between Trump and Barr is far from over, and their exchange of words only highlights the growing divide within the Republican Party. While Barr was once a very close ally of Trump, he has now become one of the former President's most outspoken and prominent critics, further showcasing the divide rife within not only the GOP but also American politics at large.
