Fox News Fans the Flaming Lie that Biden Sought to Assassinate Trump During Search of Mar-a-Lago

Now that the attorneys in the so-called “Hush Money” trial of Donald Trump (more accurately, the falsifying business records and election interference trial) have rested their cases, the disinformation agents working to exonerate Trump in the court of public opinion are preparing for the potentiality of Trump’s conviction.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

Consequently, the MAGA cult operatives are now anxiously deploying en masse to muddy up the discourse with their contrived narratives in order to deflect from the bad news that they seem to anticipate. And they don’t care how preposterous or unbelievable their distractions are. In fact, the more ridiculous the better for purposes of misdirection and evasion. That accounts for absurdities…

SUCH AS THIS: Fox News Floats Conspiracy Theory that Biden is Plotting to Assault Trump to Avoid Debating Him

However, if you think that’s as far as the Trumpists could go, you are vastly underestimating their derangement, and that of those they are trying to reach. On Monday new evidence of Trump’s involvement in stealing and hoarding classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago bunker was released.

While the new evidence further incriminates Trump, it also included a more detailed description of the search warrant granted to the FBI to search Trump’s Palm Beach home/hotel. In that description was standard boilerplate language about the possible use of force that exists in virtually every federal search warrant.

But leave it to the Trump cult to focus obsessively on that technicality and try to turn it into a controversy. Their interpretation became that this language was uniquely applied to Trump and amounted to – get this – an intention by Biden to assassinate him. Trump himself commented on this nonsense in a post on his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, raving that

“WOW! I just came out of the Biden Witch Hunt Trial in Manhattan, the ‘Icebox,’ and was shown Reports that Crooked Joe Biden’s DOJ, in their Illegal and UnConstitutional Raid of Mar-a-Lago, AUTHORIZED THE FBI TO USE DEADLY (LETHAL) FORCE. NOW WE KNOW, FOR SURE, THAT JOE BIDEN IS A SERIOUS THREAT TO DEMOCRACY. HE IS MENTALLY UNFIT TO HOLD OFFICE — 25TH AMENDMENT!”

Nearly every word of that is an outright lie. Biden had nothing to do with the trial in Manhattan, and it isn’t a “Witch Hunt.” Nor was the search of Mar-a-Lago “Illegal and UnConstitutional.” And none of that would suggest any mental unfitness of Biden, or trigger invoking the 25th Amendment. But when did Trump ever let reality interfere with his rancid yammering?

Likewise, it doesn’t stop his sycophants (e.g. Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, etc.) from joining in. And for good measure, Trump is already incorporating this malarkey into his fundraising. Unfortunately, his grasp of the English languish is distorting his message…

No one will be surprised to learn that that Fox News is fully on board with the accusations that Biden was plotting to off Trump. For example, Fox’s Senior Trump-Fluffer, Maria Bartiromo, covered the matter by saying that…

“Trump calling out President Biden after learning that his administration authorized the use of deadly force during the FBI’s 2022 raid on Mar-a-Lago during the classified documents probe. According to this filing, the DoJ and the FBI agents planned to bring standard issue weapons, ammunition, handcuffs, and medium and large size bolt cutters.”

To her credit, Bartiromo also read the FBI’s statement that…

“The FBI followed standard protocol in this search as we do for all search warrants, which includes a standard policy statement limiting the use of deadly force. No one ordered additional steps to be taken and there was no departure from the norm in this matter.”

But to her shame, Bartiromo immediately ignored her own reporting to complain that the FBI and the Democrats were calling Trump a threat to democracy, “but Biden is authorizing deadly force against his political opponent?” She knows perfectly well that Biden didn’t do that. She just read the FBI’s statement herself.

Bartiromo wasn’t the only Fox News hack furthering these lies. Jesse Watters did the same on his program, saying that “the Biden administration authorized the ‘use of deadly force’ during the Mar-A-Lago raid,” and that it was “A major bombshell in the Trump documents case.” Actually, it wasn’t. And former Florida Attorney General and Special Advisor to Trump, Pam Bondi, said on Fox & Friends that “Nothing about this is normal.” Actually, it was all normal.

So in order to counter-program the coming verdict in Trump’s “Hush Money” case, Fox News and his cult cronies have manufactured this utterly insane allegation that Biden was plotting to assassinate Trump. Never mind that the search warrant lingo was routine, the FBI behaved appropriately, and Trump wasn’t even there.

UPDATE: The standard “use of force” language was also in search warrants for Biden’s homes. So apparently Biden was also plotting to assassinate – himself?

What makes this extraordinarily ludicrous is that Trump currently has a case pending before the Supreme Court wherein he is claiming to have “presidential immunity,” which doesn’t exist in the law or the Constitution. His attorneys have argued that such immunity would give any president, including Biden, the right to assassinate a political opponent with impunity.

If the Court comes down on Trump’s side (heaven forbid), then he can’t complain if Biden actually does try to kill him. Not that Biden would ever contemplate such a thing. But it’s emblematic of Trump’s thinking that is notoriously devoid of reason.
