Country star and philanthropist John Rich, delighted by the fervent conservative reaction to the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida home at Mar-a-Lago, issued a thank-you to the beleaguered organization.

The FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago catalyzed harsh criticism across the conservative spectrum.

“A BIG thank you to Joe’s FBI for raiding Trump’s home!” Rich tweeted. “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’s avowed conservatism has been displayed for years; in June 2021 he ripped  country music stars who refused to push back against the cultural erosion pushed by the Left, declaring, “There are many conservative country music singers that just won’t say anything to push back against the ideologies that aim to erase what they care about. Why? You know why. I hope soon we see them start to speak up. The country music industry is out of touch with the audience.”

The month before that, after it was reported that Facebook had lifted its ban on stories claiming that that COVID was man-made or manufactured, Rich reacted, “When Conservatives said what this article says they were de-platformed as ‘conspiracy theorists.’ When the left says it now, it’s headline news. I’m betting this is only the beginning of the truth wave heading our way. Ultimately, truth prevails. #BringIt.”

Days before that, Rich, whose grandfather was a World War II veteran, targeted the woke movement, writing, “If the Greatest Generation would’ve had the same attitude as today’s ‘leaders’ we’d all be speaking German or living under the flag of Japan. Patton/MacArthur weren’t fueled by soy and wokeness. It was fierce patriotism and the willingness to die for America that saved the world.”


As far back as March 2021, Rich pointed out President Biden’s declining health, telling commentator Megyn Kelly, “In the beginning it’s like, okay, peck at him, poke at him, whatever. It’s really not funny at this point.”

“You know, if that was my grandfather and the family is around, we would go ‘hey, grandad, it’s probably time for you to retire and let’s get you somewhere where everything is better and good and a place you can really handle,’” he added.

“It makes you wonder if he can’t answer a question like they asked him, is there a crisis at the border and they run him out the door, can’t remember the Pentagon people,” he continued. “What’s going on in the backrooms when they’re making big-time decisions like should we strike Syria? Okay? I mean, what does that conversation sound like back there. Is he part of the conversation?”
