Conservative country singer John Rich is thrilled that the FBI’s raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home has sparked rage amongst Republican voters.
The “Big & Rich” star trolled the FBI over the public’s heated response to their search of Trump’s Florida home on Monday, which was green-lit by US Attorney General Eric Garland.
“A BIG thank you to Joe’s FBI for raiding Trump’s home!” Rich tweeted on Wednesday. “You guys just poured 81 million gallons of premium Patriot octane on an already blazing Freedom fire! See, you are good for something after all:) Much appreciated! See you in November!”

The “Save a Horse” singer took a jab at the law enforcement agency on Monday, when he compared the FBI to Russia’s former soviet era national security agency. “I can’t believe the KGB raided [Trump’s] residence… Sorry, I mean, the FBI…” He posted.
Fellow conservative celebrities agreed with Rich’s assessment. “I’m thinking the dems are trying to re-elect trump,” Fox News host Greg Gutfeld wrote.

“Make no mistake, this stunt will backfire, paving the way for Trump to win in 2024. Mark my words,” a Twitter pundit posted. “I hope so, because this is absolutely horrific,” replied former Superman star Dean Cain.
In a follow-up tweet, he added, “I can’t help but picture a small delusional army of White House staffers furiously pecking away at their keyboards… ATTACK!! Hold the line!!! Sell our B.S.!!!”
Actor Randy Quaid thinks the raid is so inconsequential to the former president, that he should declare his intentions for 2024.
“This is a fly on [Trump’s] shoulder,” Quaid wrote. “He should flick it off by announcing TODAY that he’s running. Then see how long it takes for Brandon to cancel his 19th vacation and hurry back to the White House for a round of high level meetings with Garland and Gray.”
