Reactions come in after news the FBI searched Trump’s Mar-a-Lago

If you haven’t heard, gotten some kind of notification on your devices, or were stuck inside of a Mar-a-Lago safe for the past couple of hours, the Federal Bureau of Investigation—also known as the FBI—served a search warrant at disgraced twice impeached president Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago in Florida on Monday. It’s what the kids call breaking news.

Donald Trump went to his failed social media platform Truth Social to post a clearly long-ago written screed blaming the deep state, whining that the agents “even broke my safe!” Thoughts and prayers and such. Social media reactions have been predictably giddy, as well as speculative, since it is very hard to pinpoint which of the almost infinite number of possible crimes the FBI was specifically pursuing Monday.

First, let us all get a little bit of perspective on what is happening in our country right at this moment in regards to this news.

FBI: Raids Trump’s for-profit house. World: Wow, I wonder which of Trump’s crimes this is about.

Then, of course, there’s the question of how Fox News is spinning things freaking out.

A level-eight freakout going on right now on

To put this into perspective, they are throwing Alex Jones-level everything against the wall to see what might stick or mollify their audience.

Jesse Watters responds to the Mar-a-Lago FBI raid by throwing a bunch of conspiracy theories against the wall. Hunter Biden! The Pelosi family! Hillary’s server!

Let’s take a breath and focus on some classic memes.

Guess whose houses have never been raided by the FBI

Anyone want a dad joke?

(Overhead in Florida) Knock knock. Who’s there? The Feds.

— Dan Rather (@DanRather) August 8, 2022

How about another joke?

Donald Trump is at Trump Tower now trying to squeeze Rudy Giuliani down the toilet.

What about this joke of a human being?

Maybe someone who had an intimate decades-long relationship with Trump can give us an alternate view of things?

The look on your face when you learn that the @fbi just raided Mar-a-Lardo and #TFG is shitting a brick!!!#KarmaBoomerang

And keeping with the flavor of the day.

trump couldn’t lock up hillary in 4 years, brandon raided his home in 2.

And here’s to the hope that our country can still find its way back to justice.

Would seem that executing a search warrant on Mar-a-Lago would be a pretty compelling data point to those deciding whether to testify to Jan 6 committee or otherwise flip on Trump

Because here’s a reminder of what Trump represents, what the Republican Party represents, and what our country is fighting against.

The “they cry out in pain when they strike you” is a popular line among white nationalists and antisemitic groups. The origin is a Polish proverb: “The Jew cries out in pain as he strikes you.” It has been popular meme in TheDonald for quite some time.

My current feelings:

Fed’s Raided Mar-A-Lago. Oh shit…. Shit’s poppin off.

And this one because it’s perfectly poetic.

UPDATE: Turns out, according to Trump’s daughter-in-law, the FBI was likely serving a warrant to get old clipping of USA Today.

Lara Trump: Look, my father-in-law, as anybody knows, who’s been around him a lot, loves to save things like newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, photographs, documents that he had every authority, will, to take from the white house.
