It took Merrick Garland one less than ten minute statement to trigger a crisis at Fox News.

Dana Perino said on Fox News’s The Five, “What I can’t understand is the White House maintaining that no one in the White House was informed, and let’s just say that the White House said we are going to have a clean break. We don’t want to have anything to do with this. We don’t want to have any discussion with the Justice Department what so ever. I think that’s very irresponsible and a derelection of duty. Even if you don’t want to deal with something that you think is repugnant or ugly, it is still your responsibility to oversee the Executive Branch.”
Fox News is blaming Biden for not being involved with the Trump raid.
Way back on Monday of this week, Fox News used their primetime programming to blame Biden for the raid at Mar-a-Lago.
Fox News can’t decide whether Biden is an evil mastermind who had Trump raided, or the President is standing back and letting his administration run wild.
Fox has not been able to settle on one narrative to push to their viewers, and that is a horrible omen for Trump. When Fox News feels the need to change the storyline, it is because their previous story was not working.
Trump is so screwed that even Fox News can’t find a cover story for him.
