WASHINGTON —  Police in Buffalo shove a 75-year-old man to the ground and blood pours from his ear. Police in Brooklyn knock down a young woman and call her a “bitch” because she asked why she had to leave the street. Federal authorities in Washington fire tear gas at peaceful demonstrators, then lie about it.

Get the feeling law enforcement in this country is being run by a middle-school bully?

If so, you are not wrong. Childhood bullies have a predisposition to become adult bullies, research shows, and, sure enough, it seems Attorney General William Barr was a teenage bully more than 50 years ago.

Back in 1991, during Barr’s confirmation to be George H.W. Bush’s attorney general, lawyer Jimmy Lohman, who overlapped with Barr at New York’s Horace Mann School and later Columbia University, wrote a piece for the little-known Florida Flambeau newspaper about Barr being “my very own high-school tormentor” — a “classic bully” and “power abuser” in the 1960s who “put the crunch on me every chance [he] got.”

Secret Service spent more than $75,000 protecting Donald Trump Jr. while he went on a hunting trip to Mongolia in August, according to a government watchdog group that obtained new documents detailing the costs.

Trump Jr. went to Mongolia and hunted the argali sheep, a near-threatened species with long horns.

While in Mongolia, Trump Jr. also reportedly met with Mongolian President Khaltmaagiin Battulga.

“As a son of the president, Donald Trump Jr. is entitled to Secret Service protection and should be protected, but taxpayers deserve to know how much they are paying to facilitate his trophy hunting and interactions with major political donors and foreign leaders,” Citizens for Responsibility And Ethics (CREW) in Washington said in a statement.

The Secret Service is tasked with protecting the children of presidents.
