'She's Lost It': Bill Barr Claims Maria Bartiromo Called Him to Scream About Election Lies

https://www.thedailybeast.com/bill-barr-claims-maria-bartiromo-called-him-to-scream-about-election-lies



One of Donald Trump’s favorite news hosts—Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo—reportedly got so vexed about election conspiracy theories last year that she called up then-Attorney General Bill Barr in a rage. Bartiromo was one of the highest profile pushers of Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud following the 2020 election, and the ex-president has frequently turned to her for live interviews over the past five years.

In his new book, Betrayal, ABC News Washington correspondent Jonathan Karl reports that the Fox host screamed down the phone at Barr last November after Trump’s defeat. According to Karl, Bartiromo “called Barr to complain that the DOJ hadn’t done anything to stop the Democrats from stealing the election.” Barr told Karl on the record: “She called me up and she was screaming... I yelled back at her. She’s lost it.” Bartiromo didn’t directly respond to Barr’s claim, but Fox News Media spokesperson denied Barr’s account of the conversation on her behalf.



All the other cray hosts with the pumped-up lips...............

1. Wow, Karl couldn't wait to report on this!

Barely a year after the events described, and Karl's own admission that he knew about it on the record in real time, Jonathan saved this story for his book, which he's now trying to sell. Do better, if you please, ABC News. Your employees seem far more loyal to their book sales than in doing the job you pay them to do.

3. The hubris of this woman to think she is so damn important that she could call

the US AG and say anything to him, let alone yell at him. I know it is Barr but still it shows her hubris.

4. Bartiromo Slammed for 'Delusional' Trump Interview: 'Not Much Daylight Between Maria and Alex Jones'

https://sg.news.yahoo.com/maria-bartiromo-slammed-delusional-trump-191736747.html



Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo is being scorched on social media for not pushing back at Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claims that the election was stolen from him.

During the Sunday morning interview – the president’s first since losing the race to Joe Biden — Trump called the election “rigged” and a “fraud” in what journalist Yashar Ali called “practically a monologue,” as Bartiromo let him go on endlessly unchecked without mentioning the dozens of setbacks that his legal team has had in courts. Instead, Bartiromo echoed his outrage.

“This is disgusting and we cannot allow America’s election to be corrupted,” she said.

9. I only listened to her voice once in my life and that was enough

Can't imagine how anyone could stand listening to her.

6. The enablers like Christie and Barr seemingly shocked by the Trump lie machine are laughable

None of this happened in a vacuum. Barr standing with the Bible pumping Trump at St John’s Episcopal Church helped create the myth of Trump as some sort of savior. That people actually bought into the charade should not come as a surprise.
