CNN panel stunned after AG Barr compares COVID lockdowns to slavery

A CNN panel was left speechless, briefly, after hearing remarks Attorney General William Barr had made earlier in the evening. Speaking at Hillsdale College in Michigan, Barr made a comparison between slavery and the lockdowns due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, calling the lockdowns an intrusion on civil liberties. Once they could find the words, the panel poked very large holes in Barr’s argument, from the fact that slaves first had to be free before they could even think about civil rights, and that Americans weren’t forced to stay in their homes. People could leave the house for essential tasks. And Dr. Sanjay Gupta worried that Barr’s assertion could take the country in the wrong direction when it comes to the fight against the coronavirus.
