Over the weekend, Fox News got super mad at Vice-President Kamala Harris for denouncing violent rhetoric toward law enforcement. It's a weird time where the right wing is now calling to defund the police. Who saw that coming? And all of this is happening because Donald Trump's Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, was searched by FBI agents because the ex-president, like a former disgruntled employee, refused to return sensitive documents after he vacated his now-former-workplace.

And right now, there is an "unprecedented" number of threats against FBI personnel and property following the search of Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort, including some against agents listed in court records as being involved in the recent search, a law enforcement source told CNN.

The bureau, along with the Department of Homeland Security, also has issued a joint intelligence bulletin warning of "violent threats" against federal law enforcement, courts, and government personnel and facilities.

Ricky Shiffer, an armed staunch Trump supporter, entered an Ohio FBI building last week, made threats, then engaged in gunfire with agents after a police chase and a standoff. Shiffer died after a 5-hour standoff. He believed Trump's big lie and was willing to die for Donald J. Trump. Wish granted!

Trump supporters protested outside the FBI building in Phoenix on Saturday, carrying handguns and "assault-style weapons" in protest of the search warrant executed on Mar-a-Lago.

This is getting out of hand.

So, Fox News noted that the vice-president said that she doesn't comment on anyone else's case as a former prosecutor. And she didn't.


The Fox News panel seemed to get all stompy feet over Kamala Harris, saying, "And any so-called leader who engages in rhetoric that has in any way suggested that law enforcement should be exposed to that kind of danger, is irresponsible, and can result in dangerous activity."

Guys, I'm not even going to pretend that I know the names of these Fox News bobbleheads, so I'll get to their response.

"You know, Jackie, she couldn't help herself," one meathead said. "She was going to give the generic response, and she couldn't hit the break!"

The other meathead was angry because Kamala "inserted herself" even after the White House claimed not to know about the search warrant beforehand.

I want to yeet my laptop out the window now. Look, I'm hardly an apologist for Kamala. But that was one of the stupidest arguments I've ever heard. Listening to it sucked IQ points out of my head. I hope you guys are OK.

Can you help us out?
