If you haven’t heard, gotten some kind of notification on your devices, or were stuck inside of a Mar-a-Lago safe for the past couple of hours, the Federal Bureau of Investigation—also known as the FBI—served a search warrant at disgraced twice impeached president Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago in Florida on Monday.

Donald Trump went to his failed social media platform Truth Social to post a clearly long-ago written screed blaming the deep state, whining that the agents “even broke my safe!” Thoughts and prayers and such. Social media reactions have been predictably giddy, as well as speculative, since it is very hard to pinpoint which of the almost infinite number of possible crimes the FBI was specifically pursuing Monday.

And here’s to the hope that our country can still find its way back to justice.
Because here’s a reminder of what Trump represents, what the Republican Party represents, and what our country is fighting against.
My current feelings:
And this one because it’s perfectly poetic.
UPDATE: Turns out, according to Trump’s daughter-in-law, the FBI was likely serving a warrant to get old clipping of USA Today.
Trump and his followers proved on Jan. 6 how dangerously close they came to overturning our democracy.
