On the latest episode of Human Events Daily, host Jack Posobiec called out former Vice President Mike Pence for defending the FBI after the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.
“Wow. Wow,” Posobiec said, responding to a clip of Pence insisting that “These attacks on the FBI must stop," and that “Calls to defund the FBI are just as wrong as calls to defund the police.”
“All I’ve got to say is keep licking them boots,” Posobiec said. “Keep licking those boots. Simp.”
“That’s big simp energy right there,” he reiterated, before suggesting that it might also be “a little LDE.”
“I don’t know, Mike Pence. A lot of LDE coming from you right now. Don’t like it.”
Posobiec went on to highlight a new Rasmussen poll showing that Americans’ trust in the FBI has dramatically plummeted since the raid.
“Their favorables are now down to only about 50%. Used to be huge,” said Posobiec.
Reading from the poll, Posobiec noted that 44% of respondents said that the “recent raid on the Florida home of former President Donald Trump” made them trust the FBI less.
Respondents were also asked whether or not they agreed with a quote from Roger Stone, asserting that “a group of politicized thugs at the top of the FBI who are using the FBI … as Joe Biden‘s personal Gestapo.”
“You’re now seeing 52% agree with that,” said Posobiec.”
“Even for independents, you are seeing 49%...agree with that.”
“Even your moderates agree that the FBI and the DOJ come across as the personal Stasi– like to say Stasi, because I think that’s more accurate– of the Biden regime.”
Posobiec noted that Hollywood and the entertainment industry are partially responsible for the reverence Americans once held for the FBI.
“Not only were they highly respected because of what they do in court cases, but also this massive PR push: Hollywood, TV shows, movies. Everything,” he said, pointing to shows like the X-Files and the windbreakers FBI agent characters are often depicted wearing on-screen.
“But then we start talking about J. Edgar Hoover…about the fact that he was always spying on his personal political enemies,” Posobiec explained. “And then you see people like Merrick Garland who get up there, and rather than explain to us what’s going on, who go to court to fight to keep under seal, to keep secret, the reasons that we are seeing these massive egregious errors.”
“And we get these crazy rumors that it was a paperwork dispute. ‘Was it the president’s personal record or a presidential record?’ He was the president!”
