Figuring the best defense is a good offense, Trump attacked Joe Biden as an enemy of the state at a poorly-attended Pennsylvania rally. Via Vanity Fair:

On Saturday night in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Trump called the president of the United States “an enemy of the state.” This fiery accusation was likely fueled by comments Biden made in a speech on Thursday: “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

Trump further described Biden’s speech on Thursday at Independence Hall as “the most vicious, hateful, and divisive speech ever delivered by an American president."

Truth hurts, huh?

Addressing the FBI search of his Florida estate, Trump called the Justice Department “vicious monsters” who executed a “shameful raid and break-in of my home in Mar-a-Lago.” He also called the search “one of the most shocking abuses of power by any administration in American history.”

But wait, there's more! Terrified by the thought of yet another one of his endorsed candidates going down the tubes, he went after Dr. Oz's opponent, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman:

Possibly the most outrageous claims Trump made at the rally were about John Fetterman, the lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania and Dr. Mehmet Oz’s rival for a Senate seat. “Fetterman supports taxpayer-funded drug dens and the complete decriminalization of illegal drugs, including heroin, cocaine, crystal meth, and ultra lethal fentanyl. And by the way, he takes them himself,” Trump said.

So if fentanyl is "ultra lethal" and Fetterman takes it, how come he's not dead yet? Inquiring minds want to know.

By the way, imagine being the father of Don Jr. and making a false accusation like that. SAD!
