Unsurprising Story of the Week: Billy Barr was a High School and College Bully

Dana Millbank reports that our Attorney General, like his boss, was a childhood bully: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/06/09/so-this-is-why-bill-barr-is-such-bully/

Apparently he and his three brothers were known as the "bully Barrs."

The story indicates that favorite targets included Jews and students against the Vietnam War.  Barr, like his chief, Cadet Bone Spurs, did not serve and has told conflicting stories about whether he even registered for the draft as he was legally required to.

Many or most childhood bullies outgrow it, but evidently the more morally depraved among them do not.
