Fox News host Tucker Carlson excoriated the Biden DOJ and the FBI for casting themselves as victims of threats from the general public following a raid on former President Donald Trump’s home in Florida last week.
“Just the other day, after signing off on the Mar-a-Lago raid, your Attorney General, Merrick Garland, came on stage to whine about how actually he was the victim here,” Carlson said. “He’s the victim. Apparently, some people disagreed with the raid, so the FBI, the most heavily armed domestic law enforcement agency in the world, is now under threat from you.”
“Right. You’re the criminal,” Carlson said. “‘Our critics are in jail, but I got anonymous threats on Twitter. Poor me.’ Passive aggression is the defining characteristic of the left.”
Carlson jibed, “If they started putting people in camps, NBC News would cheer them on and then attack you for complaining about it. ‘How dare you, violating our norms. We’ve always had camps.'”
“As if to prove it, they prove it every day, but in the hours after Mar-a-Lago raid, the usual jackals on Twitter, begin demanding that Donald Trump should release the warrant that justified the raid,” he continued. “‘If you’re not guilty, you’ll show it to us,’ that’s what they said. So, Trump did it. He gave the warrant to Breitbart News, which printed it, and then the second to Breitbart piece went up, the very same jackals start screaming about how far right-wing extremist are putting the lives of FBI agents in danger since those agents were named in the warrant, which is a public document.”
“In other words, ‘We’re the victims here,'” Carlson concluded, mocking the Biden DOJ. “‘We’re the victims.'”
Trump revealed on Tuesday that the FBI forcibly confiscated his three passports, one of which was expired, during the heavily criticized raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida.
