Donald Trump’s Attorney General Is Being Grilled and Twitter Loves It

U.S. Attorney General William Barr

If you’re like me, your head has been so flipped with all the nerdy news out there in the world that you may not have realized that Donald Trump’s attorney general, William Barr, was being grilled by the U.S. Senate until you were physically confronted with it. Or maybe I’m just tuning out everything to do with the president because my brain can’t handle it.

Whatever the case may be, the Barr grilling is maybe some of the best television I’ve seen in quite some time. Republican members of the Senate are trying to justify Barr’s handling of the results of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, Democrats are calling out what he did, and the whole thing is just geared towards a Primetime Emmy.

So, of course, Twitter is having fun with it.

And don’t worry … it’s still going on if you want to watch for yourself.
