On Saturday, former President Donald Trump unleashed a series of messages on his platform Truth Social about the search warrant executed on his Florida resort Mar-a-Lago. In one, Trump tweeted (fuckit, I'm just going to call them tweets since his site is a ripoff of Twitter) a link suggesting that the twice impeached one-term President is a martyr. In another, he tweeted, "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!" in shouty caps and with a bold emphasis.

He attacked the FBI, saying the agency has a long history of being "corrupt," and, of course, he brought up Hillary Clinton. He retweeted comments attacking the FBI even after armed Trump supporters showed up at the bureau's office in Phoenix last night.

Then he spoke about poll numbers, hoaxes, and scams, before unleashing a message about the investigation into the ex-president for espionage, calling it a "WITCH HUNT!" Can someone please tell me why he put White House in quotes? It really bothers me when he does that.

The "White House" just announced that it had NO KNOWLEDGE of the early morning RAID on Mar-a-Lago, or the break in of Melania's closets, my safe's, or the secured and locked storage area where unclassified documents were safely held, and which the FBI knew of, was shown, and made recommendations that another lock be added (which they cracked, but not with the safecracker that they brought with them!)," he fumed. "Does ANYBODY really believe that the White House didn't know about this? WITCH HUNT!

Trump left this message for the FBI to return his items:

Oh great! It has just been learned that the FBI, in its now famous raid of Mar-a-Lago, took boxes of privileged “attorney-client” material, and also “executive” privileged material, which they knowingly should not have taken. By copy of this TRUTH, I respectfully request that these documents be immediately returned to the location from which they were taken. Thank you!

First of all, I'd like to see proof that the FBI searched Melanie's closet. Trump seems to be the only one saying that. And if it's true, that's the least of his problems. Also, is he trying to say "safes" in plural? As for the Biden White House knowing about the warrant, Trump is showing his true colors. When he was occupying the White House, he weaponized the DOJ and other acronymic entities. He just assumes that Biden is doing that, too.

Trump has never been held accountable for any of his actions in his life, and it appears that he doesn't like it very much. That's got to suck.
