Fox News has attacked the FBI’s raid on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence as a politically motivated overreach of government power. In response, The Daily Show released a video to remind viewers that the conservative network was all in favor of FBI intervention when Trump’s opponent was the one being investigated.
The video intersperses footage of Fox News hosts’ commentary on the investigation into Clinton with footage of the raid on Mar-a-Lago, and it shows they have not always been so opposed to FBI investigation.
As viewers watch footage of the FBI executing the search warrant at Trump’s residence, viewers can hear Fox News personalities like Bill O’Reilly saying, “When you have a presidential candidate, the FBI has a duty to We The People to investigate any appearance of impropriety.”
Fox News pundit Mark Levin appears in another clip saying: “Patriotic FBI agents are pushing and trying to do something, but this requires a full, comprehensive investigation.”
“Multiple felonies that we’re talking about here,” Sean Hannity says as Texas Sen. Ted Cruz nods in agreement.
The video concludes with Fox News judge Jeanine Pirro ruling a “guilty” verdict based on the evidence found by the FBI.
