Former President Donald Trump on Friday continued his raging response to the House Select Committee’s public hearing on the Jan 6 insurrection, calling the proceeding a “one sided, totally partisan, POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!” and that he’s not at fault for the “rush” to the Capitol. He also slammed his daughter as “checked out” over her testimony and claimed former Attorney General Bill Barr “sucked” at his job.

During a nationally televised hearing on Thursday night, the House Jan 6 Panel played a clip of Bill Barr saying Trump’s claims of election fraud was bullsh*t.”

“I had three discussions with the president that I can recall. One was on Nov. 23, one was on Dec. 1 and one on Dec. 14, and I’ve been through sort of a give and take of those discussions — and in that context, I made it clear I did not agree with the idea of saying the election was stolen and putting out this stuff, which I told the president was bullshit,” Barr told House investigators.

“I didn’t want to be a part of it and that’s one of the reasons that went into my deciding to leave when I did. I observed, I think it was on December 1, you know, we can’t live in a world where the incumbent administration stays in power based on its view, unsupported by specific evidence, that there was fraud in the election,” he added.

Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump sided with Barr’s assessment, telling the House Select Committee that she believes Barr.

Trump responded by flipping out on his social media platform. Read his comments below:
