Former Attorney General Bill Barr stated that he would vote for “the Republican ticket” in the upcoming presidential election. He also mentioned that a second term in office for President Joe Biden would be “national suicide.”

In an interview with Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” Barr stated that he believes Biden and his policies pose a greater threat to the United States. “Well, I’ve said all along, you know, given two bad choices, I think it’s my duty to pick the person I think would do the least harm to the country, and in my mind, that’s — I will vote the Republican ticket,” Barr said. “I will support the Republican ticket.”

Barr warned that Biden is pursuing an extremely dangerous agenda, which he described as “the real danger to the country, the real danger to democracy.” He added: “Trump may be playing Russian roulette but a continuation of the Biden administration is national suicide, in my opinion.”

“The choice now is a binary choice between these two candidates, and of the two, I support President Trump. And one of the reasons is because I think many of our critical problems, including deregulation, crime, restoring law and order, restoring control over our borders, rebuilding our defense in this increasingly dangerous world, standing by our allies, I trust President Trump to do that much more so than President Biden, I think,” he added. “And I also worry very much that in the batting circle with Joe Biden is Vice President Kamala Harris. I feel that under these circumstances, the Republicans have to win in November.

Barr appeared to flummox CNN host Kaitlin Collins during a late April interview after she asked him a number of loaded questions about his stint in former President Donald Trump’s administration.

Collins got schooled by Barr when she pressed him about his belief that Biden is a greater “threat to democracy” than Trump while insisting that he thinks “the real threat to democracy is the progressive movement.”

“So it’s not about me. I think that, that I’ve said this all along. If faced with a choice between two people, neither of which I think should be president, I feel it’s my duty to pick the person who I think would do the least damage to the country,” Barr explained.

“And I think Trump would do less damage than Biden. And I think all this stuff about a threat to democracy, I think the real threat to democracy is the progressive movement and the Biden administration,” he continued.

“The Biden administration, or President Biden himself,” Collins asked. “Biden’s support for the progressive agenda,” Barr explained. Acting dumbfounded, Collins pressed Barr on how he could possibly think that Biden — whose Justice Department is actively prosecuting Biden’s chief political rival, Trump — was a bigger threat to democracy.

“Well, where are we losing our freedoms?” he replied. “How are our freedoms being constrained? They’re being constrained by the progressive government and, you know, democracy, especially, you know, from the Anglosphere democracies, the Five Eyes, and so forth; the threat’s never been from the autocratic government on the right.”

That led Collins to press Barr for examples. “The threat to freedom and democracy has always been on the left,” he pointed out. “It’s the collectivist, socialist agenda. And that is where we’re losing our freedom. Parents are losing the freedom to control their children’s education. And, you know, people can’t speak their mind without losing their jobs and things like that. This is worse than the McCarthy era. Where is that coming from? It’s not coming from the right.”

Collins mentioned Trump’s objections to the results of the 2020 election, which was an amusing position considering that Collins’ network had dedicated a significant amount of airtime to covering the Russian collusion hoax. In response, Barr highlighted issues such as the border crisis, the surge in crime in our cities, and increasing regulations, such as the move to ban gas stoves and gas-powered vehicles through regulations.
