Country music star and philanthropist John Rich expressed delight at the conservative reaction to the FBI raid at former President Donald Trump’s Florida home, Mar-A-Lago. Rich thanked the bombarded organization in a tweet.
A BIG thank you to Joe's FBI for raiding Trump's home! 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!

Rich is an unapologetic conservative. He has repeatedly blasted the Biden Administration on liberal policies, as well as confronting fellow conservative country music stars unwilling to speak up on issues that run crosswise to their ideologies. Rich claims the industry is “out of touch with the audience.”
Since May 2021, Rich has taken on the liberal push from the left and the two-tiered justice system. The country music star hammered the left in a 2021 tweet when Facebook announced it would not “remove” or suppress posts about COVID-19 being man-made.
Rich was not alone in speaking out about the FBI’s actions. Numerous conservatives took to social media to blast anyone connected to the raid.
Russ Vought, former Trump official: “By raiding Pres Trump’s home today, the FBI offered clear & convincing evidence that it is weaponized against the American people and self-government. The FBI must be broken into a thousand pieces. Investigated, defunded, abolished, rent asunder. And the GOP must wake up & fight!”
Candace Owens, political commentator: “The FBI must be legally and formally dissolved. What happened to President Trump is positively stunning and a mark of unchecked government power. I no longer recognize the country I live in. Left or right, we must all come together to fight this evil.”
Richard Grenell, former Acting Director of National Intelligence: “The FBI raids Trump’s house and the Democrats vote to add 87,000 new IRS agents to go after Americans. Wake up, America.”
Regardless of which conservative post one reads, the comments are positive and negative, for Trump and against him, with both sides claiming they are 100% right.
Time will tell the whole tale.
