According to Judge Jeanine Pirro, a host at Fox News who is often considered unhinged in her over-the-top commentary, the FBI is planning a full blown coup against Donald Trump. And others at the channel, like Jesse Watters , agree.
"What would you say if I told you your vote doesn't count? That all the effort into the issues and candidates is a waste of time? That there are people at the citadel of power who believe it is their right to invalidate your choice if they don't agree with it? Folks, this is not about politics. It's much bigger. I doubt in American presidential election history that there has been as great a crime or as large a stain on our democracy than that committed by a criminal cabal in the FBI and the Department of Justice who think they know better than we who our president should be... This is worse than even I imagined. This week, we saw documents that gave us context — or as I would say in my DA life, motive — for the crimes that I have already described to you in the past. Not that we need motive, since the elements of the crime has already been established. And folks, this was the motherload."
Why should we care what this woman, or anyone at Fox News for that matter, says? Because, we can't stop what we don't acknowledge or understand. Unfortunately, many Trump voters will listen to Pirro and believe every dangerous word of this nonsense. The real problems arise when uninformed people take action based on these lies.
At least trying to understand the constant stream of misinformation our fellow Americans on the other side of the political aisle are fed, is vital -- especially now that the very fabric of our democracy is at stake as a constitutional crisis looms on the horizon and threatens our future.
