Lyin’ Brian Is Obsessed With the Way Kamala Harris ‘Drew Blood’ from Barr

You know, for all the liberal media’s talk political language inciting violence, you would think MSNBC would be keener and watch the words they use. Immediately following Attorney General William Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday afternoon, serial liar Brian Williams took to MSNBC Live and was infatuated with the radical California Senator Kamala Harris (D) and how she had “drew blood” from the AG. Gross.

After falsely claiming Barr had tried “to diminish the reputation of one Robert Mueller,” Williams proclaimed, “The headline of the afternoon, which we are going to get to in just a second is, the blood was drawn by Kamala Harris of California, a former prosecutor.

That was just the first of three times Williams hyped Harris for rhetorically taking blood from Barr. The second time came as he was eagerly setting up soundbites ahead of some more hot takes:

As the Attorney General walks into the sunset, as it were, a bank of elevators, we're going to do two things. We're going to play two different things from Senator Harris. First her direct questioning of the Attorney General. And from that we're going to go right into her comments we have yet to see in the hallway after her questioning was over, where I understand she got just as tough as she was in the room. As we said, Senator Harris drew blood this afternoon as part of this hearing.

 

 

After a couple of minutes of soundbites of Harris, Williams brought on MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace to share her Trump Derangement Syndrome-tainted perspective. “You watched a lot of this in real-time this afternoon. You concur that Senator Harris drew blood,” Williams wondered.

According to Wallace, not only did Harris draw blood, she somehow blew the lid off a supposed conspiracy to protect President Trump from the law:

Yeah. I mean, look, the point she's making is that the person who looked at all the evidence, Robert Mueller, and his obstruction investigators and prosecutors, couldn't do what Barr did. And maybe we know why Barr was able to do it because see no evil, hear no evil, do no evil maybe is going to be his defense. But Mueller saw, Mueller read, and Mueller shared with the public all the interviews that he had. Mueller told the story of obstruction and Mueller explicitly wrote that their investigation does not exonerate Trump. When Barr went in and did the opposite, said but I will, there was an assumption that he looked at the same material and just reached a different conclusion. We know from Senator Kamala Harris’s questioning that he did not. So, it erases any mystery about the motive.

They’re truly living in another reality.

BRIAN WILLIAMS: What an interesting day. We were gaveled into order shortly after 10:00 a.m. It's 3:15 on the east coast. The chairman started the hearing by saying he had not completely read the Mueller report. He ended the hearing by expressing thanks that William Barr is the nation's attorney general and along the way a lot happened.

Some of the major activity of the day happened right there before the gavel. As seeming attempt by the Attorney General to diminish the reputation of one Robert Mueller. It will be questioned by others more professional than me. I don't consider Bob a career prosecutor and he characterized the letter from Mueller as a bit snitty, which we assume to be a close cousin of either snooty or snotty. But snitty is what we are left with. And further diminish the letter by saying, it was probably written by one of his staff people.

The headline of the afternoon, which we are going to get to in just a second is, the blood was drawn by Kamala Harris of California, a former prosecutor.

WILLIAMS: In the scant 39 minutes until her own broadcast begins, we have been rejoined by Nicolle Wallace. You watched a lot of this in real-time this afternoon. You concur that Senator Harris drew blood?

NICOLLE WALLACE: Yeah.
