After the FBI served a search warrant on disgraced, one-term former president Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago golf club Monday, the ex-president immediately fired off an angry statement which read in part:
“These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents. Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.
“They even broke into my safe!”
Oh, so there was a safe? Wonder what could have been contained in that? What exactly was the FBI looking for?
If Trump truly has nothing to hide, he could easily release the affidavit attached to the search warrant that was served by the FBI which would lay out exactly what the feds were looking for and what crimes having those items violated. The fact that he hasn’t tells you all you need to know. Namely, it tells us that Donald doesn’t want anyone to know what he’s accused of having done when he took top secret documents from the White House in clear violation of federal law.
But since we still don’t know what was in that safe, Twitter users were only too happy to speculate, and while they may not be correct, they were very often hilarious. Take a look:
Alleged child sex trafficker Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is vowing to cut off all federal funds to law enforcement because the FBI served a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago on Monday.
In other words, Gaetz wants to “defund the police” even though he and his fellow Republicans have been accusing Democrats of that for years.
Appearing on former Trump administration adviser Steve Bannon’s podcast, Gaetz also compared the FBI to the East German Statsi, who were the secret police during the time when East Germany was under control of the Soviet Union:
Gatez went on to allege that Democrats have “got their polling back” on the recently passed Inflation Reduction Act, adding:
And then Gaetz declared that he would not agree to give “one more damn penny” to federal agents who protect the country:
“So if that’s the diagnosis, my assessment that the antidote has to be not one more damn penny for this administrative state that has been weaponized against our people in a very fascist way. They want to ensure that they centralize their power and so it’s my perspective that, you know, if they want to limit the choices of voters with this performative activity then we ought to limit the resources that they have to be able to execute on it.”
How much do you suppose Gaetz will cry when the FBI shows up to arrest him for allegedly carrying underage girls across state lines and paying them for their time via Venmo? Let’s just hope there are cameras there to record it.
Just hours after the FBI served a search warrant on former president Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago golf club and residence in Palm Beach, Florida, Eric Trump showed up on Sean Hannity’s show to whine, appearing on the verge of tears as he spoke to the Fox News host.
The Daily Beast notes that Hannity let Eric go uninterrupted as he bemoaned the fact that justice had finally caught up with his daddy:
Actually, it came from a federal judge and the Justice Department as part of an ongoing investigation of top secret documents the ex-president removed from the White House and took with him to Florida in direct violation of federal law.
“To have 30 FBI agents—actually more than that—descend on Mar-a-Lago, give absolutely no notice, go through the gates, start ransacking an office, ransacking a closet… they broke into a safe. He didn’t even have anything in the safe. I mean, give me a break. And this is coming from, what, the National Archives?”
If Donald didn’t have anything in the safe, then he has nothing to worry about. But as we’ve learned when it comes to the Trump family, what they say is almost always the opposite of what actually happened.
As you’d expect, Eric also tried to deflect by using the name of Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s son:
“And yet Hunter Biden, he did firearms crimes, prostitution, illegal drugs, you know, shady deals with everybody around the world. And by the way, it’s all in his laptop for the whole world to see. Where are these FBI agents? Where is everybody? Why is it that the arrows only fly at Donald Trump and his family? Why is it that the political persecution only goes one way in this country?
“When do you give up? When do you say enough is enough? When do you give a human being who fought so hard for this country—when do you give them the benefit of the doubt?”
Fought so hard for this country? Donald Trump claimed to have “bone spurs” when he was called to serve in Vietnam. He has never done anything for anyone other than himself because he’s a grifter, a liar, a traitor, and a coward.
The FBI raided and served a search warrant on failed, one-term former president Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago golf club, which currently serves as his residence.
We know the raid took place because Trump confirmed it, belching out an angry harangue he released to the media which read in part:
“These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home … is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” said Trump. “Nothing like this has happened to a President of the United States before … They even broke into my safe! What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democrat [sic] National Committee? Here, in reverse, Democrats broke into the home of the 45th President of the United States.
“The lawlessness, political persecution, and Witch Hunt must be exposed and stopped. I will continue to fight for the Great American People!”
What was the FBI looking for? Most legal experts believe the raid was due to revelations that the ex-president took classified documents with him when he left office and allegedly destroyed them, with Axios reporting:
Maggie Haberman’s forthcoming book about former President Trump will report that White House residence staff periodically found wads of paper clogging a toilet — and believed the former president, a notorious destroyer of Oval Office documents, was the flusher.
Why it matters: Destroying records that should be preserved is potentially illegal.
That led to these remarks from several legal eagles and top-notch reporters:
Proving that he has absolutely no self-awareness whatsoever, one-term, twice impeached former president Donald Trump made a posting on his pathetic Twitter imitation, Truth Social (a.k.a Twitter for losers,) that only succeeded in getting him endlessly mocked on other social media sites with much larger followings.
Trump’s ire was set off by an ad being run by Daniel Goldman, who was an attorney for the House impeachment committee that sent articles impeachment to the Senate the FIRST time Donnie was impeached.
Goldman is running for Congress in New York, which has no impact on Trump one way or the other, as he now resides at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida.
But the ill-tempered ex-president couldn’t resist trying to troll Goldman:
OK, who wants to tell him?
Why would anyone want to vote for a loser? Great question, and one that begs yet another query: Why would anyone vote for Donald Trump, who lost the popular vote TWICE and most recently got his electoral clock cleaned by President Joe Biden? Some people, it seems, are just masochists, while others allegedly like to have Russian hookers urinate on the bed while they watch.
Fortunately, there was no shortage of people who were only too happy to remind Donnie that he’s a loser of historical proportions.
