Protesters brought a white horse to Attorney General William Barr’s home to demand he lock up presidential hopeful Joe Biden, according to reports.
Photos showed at least a dozen people standing alongside the horse in the street in Virginia on Saturday afternoon — with Barr eventually coming out to shake hands and pose for photos.
“It’s come to this: A neighbor reports that AG William Barr’s house in McLean is being picketed by Trump supporters who believe he’s not doing enough to lock up Joe Biden,” tweeted Glenn Kessler, editor and chief writer for The Washington Post’s Fact Checker.
Photos showed the group mostly dressed in red T-shirts and carrying Trump flags, with signs including “Equal justice is coming” and “Biden lies matter.” Others wore “Crooked Hillary” shirts and held a sign with the Bible quote, “They that forsake the law praise the wicked.”
“Why is there a horse outside of Bill Barr’s house?” asked Daily Beast editor-at-large Molly Jong-Fast alongside other photos of the bizarre scene. “How did the white horse get there and why?” she asked.
Barr eventually went out to greet the group, a Department of Justice official told Associated Press reporter Mike Balsamo.
Barr “chatted with the folks out there, explained DOJ’s role generally in investigations and then shook hands and posed for photos with them,” Balsamo tweeted.
President Trump has repeatedly called his Democratic rival a “criminal” — ramping up the attacks since The Post’s bombshell revelations over emails in the Biden’s son Hunter Biden’s laptop.
