Many times it’s the statement not intended to be funny that unintentionally becomes the most humorous. There is no better example of this fact than a proclamation by White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Tuesday.
Asked about her boss’ weaponization of the federal government against his chief political opponent, her response was one for the ages.
With a straight face, Jean-Pieere declared that President Joe Biden “has been very, very steadfast on making sure that the rule of law comes back in this administration, comes back in the White House, and clearly the administration more broadly, and that’s what you’ve seen.”
For the record, Biden’s strongest political rival by far, former President Donald Trump, has been hit with a staggering 71 indictments with the promise of more coming shortly.
As the 2024 Republican presidential frontrunner very correctly pointed out, this is third-world banana republic activity hardly becoming of the most powerful nation on Earth.

Trump revealed Tuesday that he is preparing to be arrested and indicted as a result of special counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into Jan. 6. This is just more piling on by the Biden administration against his predecessor that he clearly believes he cannot defeat in a fair rematch.
Trump announced on his Truth Social platform that Biden’s Department of Justice prosecutor sent a letter declaring him to be the target of the Jan. 6 investigation. He was given four days to report to the grand jury.
The former president added that this notification “almost always means an arrest and indictment.” He rightly observed that nothing action of this type has ever unleashed on a political opponent in the history of the U.S.
Multiple times on Jan. 6, Trump urged his supporters to be peaceful in their demonstration protesting the controversial 2020 presidential election. The exact charges Smith seeks to levy against the candidate are not known.
What is known is that Democrats want nothing more than to force Trump out of next year’s presidential race. Their belief is that if he is somehow convicted for “insurrection,” under the Fourteenth Amendment he will be disqualified from holding federal office.
In short, they are using the power of the federal government to circle the wagons around a woefully unpopular incumbent.
