Trump's AG Just Contradicted Trump's Bizarre Claims About Why He Really Went Down to the White House Bunker
Fox News

President Donald Trump was the subject of ridicule earlier this month when reports broke that the President was rushed to the White House's underground bunker as protests against the murder of George Floyd by police grew more heated outside the White House.

After the nickname #BunkerBaby began to spread on Twitter, Trump insisted that he was only in the bunker for a brief amount of time—not because he felt there was a threat to his safety, but because he felt the need to inspect it.

Trump said:

"I went down during the day, and I was there for a tiny, little short period of time, and it was much more for an inspection. There was no problem during the day...There was never a problem. We never had a problem. Nobody ever came close to giving us a problem."

Trump claims that reports of him taking refuge in the bunker were false, but now his own attorney general—William Barr—is contradicting that in an interview with Fox News's Bret Baier.

Watch below.

Barr was attempting to justify his order for guards to tear gas peaceful protestors last Monday in order for the President to take a picture with a bible in front of Saint John's Episcopal Church.

Barr ended up contradicting the President instead, saying:

"On Monday, we were reacting to three days of extremely violent demonstrations right across from the White House...Things were so bad that the Secret Service recommended the President go down to the bunker."

In his interview denying the bunker story, the President specifically said the Secret Service didn't recommend he go down to the bunker. He also said there were few if any protestors at the time he went down to the bunker.

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade asked Trump:

"You're telling me [the Secret Service] didn't say 'You have to go downstairs. My responsibility is your welfare.' They didn't limit you at all in the House?"

Trump responded:

"Nope, they didn't tell me that at all, but they said it would be a good time to go down, take a look because maybe sometime you're going to need it...We didn't even have protestors, or if they did, it was a small crowd. There's so much fake news going around, Brian, you have no idea."

So who is telling the truth?

Regardless, people haven't stopped mocking Trump for the bunker.

Curiouser and curiouser.
