Sounds like he's offering himself up to be pepper sprayed

The interviewer needed to take a can of pepper spray out of a drawer and ask Barr if pepper spray is not an irritant  can they spray him the face with the exact same thing that was used on peaceful protestors.

Barr was extra smarmy with Margaret Brennan today on Face the Nation.  Stephen Miller painted his to go talk to her a while ago.  Barr turned up the smarm -- and the bullshiat -- big time.

So infuriating.

Clorox is just chlorine, and the Germans were the first to use it in warfare. Try again.

Why is the AG sounding like a gun nutter whining that "AR doesn't stand for aumotatic rifle, you losers!"
 
2020-06-07 1:33:15 PM  
Even if this was true it is still an irritant which is the actual point of people being angry about it's use.

Anyone remember when former Supreme Court Justice Scalia said on Fox News that man-portable nuclear weapons were covered under the Second Amendment?

Gun Control - Supreme Court Justice Scalia

Okay so now that Barr says pepper spray is not a chemical and we have established that anything a human being can carry, up to and including Davy Crockett rifle-launched nuclear projectiles and backpack nukes are covered under the Second Amendment, it's time to show up at these protests carrying nukes and since clearly we have seen that showing up and protesting while armed to the teeth is okay and doesn't provoke a police/military response there should not be any issue with people exercising their Second Amendment rights to carry around live nuclear arms.  I mean Trump also brought up Second Amendment rights in his little speech and on Twitter, right?  And the government should have no problem if everyone else shows up with their own mass quantities of pepper spray either because it's not a chemical therefore it doesn't meet the definition of being a chemical weapon... and if it did meet the definition of a chemical weapon it'd still be A-OK to demonstrate with so long as everyone could pick it up and carry it because it has to be "man-portable" to qualify as "bearing arms" under the Second Amendment.

Just don't show up on a motorcycle with a nuke for a sidecar unless you can pick up the sidecar and carry it a few steps to demonstrate that it is in fact "man-portable" and that you can indeed "bear arms" with it.

If it were "just chlorine" it wouldn't be sold by the gallon.

My point, that went over your head like breathable air around chlorine gas, is that Barr's comment is ignoring the fact that a product's technical description does not restrict its use.

By the way, don't mix clorox and ammonia.

The protesters were already being completely engulfed in chemicals.  They were inhaling large amounts air containing dihydrogen monoxide even before Barr showed up.
 
2020-06-07 2:57:29 PM  
So, now we know that Barr didn't pass high school or college chemistry...

Hey, Bill, why don't you take a turn with pepper spray training, and then get back to us on it.

They're trying very hard to spin things today.

No, Barr, pepper spray is a chemical irritant.  You, however, are not a chemical irritant.  You are just an irritant.
 
2020-06-07 3:19:11 PM  
I think a followup question should have been "Well, what were they sprayed with?"

The anti-science administration strikes again.  Yay.

I wonder what Barr thinks is going on in his body.  Does he think it runs on magic?

Zatso?

Why don't you take a shot to the face and tell us all how wholesome and organic that rubbish is, you Fred Flinstone looking coontcicle.

Sorry, y'all. I'm in a mood.
