Somebody Please Think of the Children, Who Are 44, 40 and 38-Year-Old Crooks

The competition was stiff, but this week's Head-Spinning Hypocrisy Award goes to former A.G. and serial abuser of power as a political weapon Bill Barr, who called New York A.G. Letitia James suing the Trump Mafia a "political hit job" that "grossly overreaches when she tries to drag the children into (it)." This from a "liberty and justice for some" guy who argues "prisons work," "we need more of them," and kids 14 and up should be tried as adults because "some youthful offenders are simply criminals who happen to be young" - or grown-ass senior executives and presidential advisers.
