MSNBC’s Ari Melber: Bill Barr ‘Appeared to Echo’ Hannity in Fox News Interview

A number of cable news hosts and pundits reacted to Attorney General Bill Barr‘s Fox News interview by saying he sounded like President Donald Trump or hosts on Fox itself. MSNBC’s Ari Melber compared Barr to one Fox News host in particular Friday night.

Melber said, “While on Fox, Barr appeared to echo one of the network’s biggest Trump-defending anchors.”

He showed clips of Hannity railing against the Russia investigation on his show paired with comments from Barr yesterday on the investigation into the origins of the investigation.

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin similarly reacted last night by saying that “Sean Hannity is the attorney general.”
