Disgraced former President Trump has been in a seemingly neverending downward spiral since the news broke that a handful of classified documents were found inside President Joe Biden’s old office, and now his Wilmington, Delaware home.
NBC News reported over the weekend that, in addition to the 10 or so pages discovered at the president’s prior office, five more pages were apparently found by Biden’s personal lawyer at his Delaware home. President Biden and his team have, of course, ensured that the classified documents have all been immediately handed over to the proper authorities upon their discovery, and just last week, Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland officially appointed Special Counsel Robert Hur to oversee a DOJ probe into how the classified materials — all of which hail from Biden’s time as Barack Obama’s vice president — ended up at his old office and personal home.
As it stands, there have been no formal allegations of wrongdoing lodged against the sitting US president, and Biden continues to maintain that the boxes where the classified documents were stored and found were packed by campaign aides.
But it seems that Biden’s unhinged, scandal-ridden predecessor has made it his mission to convince the world that what Biden has “done” is not as bad as what he did, with regard to his infamous Mar-a-Lago stolen document scandal… But worse.

Of course, the two aren’t even in the same stratosphere, much less the same level — if for no other reason than President Biden didn’t intentionally steal hundreds of classified, top-secret documents, stash them away at one of his golf resorts, then repeatedly lie to the federal government about his possession of the materials, refuse to return them, and for the DOJ and FBI to execute a search and seizure warrant raid at his property to retrieve the materials.
Trump is now facing a massive, full-blown federal investigation as a result of this scandal.
Huge… Huge difference.
But nevertheless, Trump and his Republican cronies are trying their dead-level best to run with this thing, with GOP House Reps going so far over the weekend as to all but demand a copy of President Biden’s visitor logs.
Today, the White House Counsel’s office officially informed Fox News that no such records exist, because they weren’t recorded in the first place.
In an official statement, Biden’s White House counsel said:
Like every President in decades of modern history, his personal residence is personal. But upon taking office, President Biden restored the norm and tradition of keeping White House visitors logs, including publishing them regularly, after the previous administration ended them.”
Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi also spoke with reporters and further explained, “we don’t independently maintain our own visitor logs because it’s a private residence.”
None of that stopped Trump from absolutely losing it — and it seems he’s reached a point of such desperation that he’s beginning to drag some seriously bizarre people into the mess. Such as guests of his own Mar-a-Lago resort, who he seemingly implied that he has some sort of blackmail information on, in his unhinged rant in response to the Biden development.
The White House just announced that there are no LOGS or information of any kind on visitors to the Wilmington house and flimsy, unlocked, and unsecured, but now very famous, garage. Maybe they are smarter than we think! This is one of seemingly many places where HIGHLY CLASSIFIED documents are stored (in a big pile on the damp floor). Mar-a-Lago is a highly secured facility, with Security Cameras all over the place, and watched over by staff & our great Secret Service. I have INFO on everyone.”
Ironically enough, the New York Times reported back in December on the condition in which many of the infamous Mar-a-Lago documents were discovered, and it certainly makes Trump’s newest hissy fit that much more hypocritical, to say the least:
Most of the classified documents in August were found in a storage area, which is accessible through two sets of arched doors, people familiar with the property told the Times. The doors are near the pool area, a popular event space. Highly sensitive materials like the documents found at Mar-a-Lago are usually viewed inside a secure, enclosed area with a safe built to meet strict guidelines. Periodic inspection is also required. But the Justice Department had noted that Mar-a-Lago did not have a ‘secure location authorized for the storage of classified information.’
Trump has said that before leaving office he had declared the documents declassified, but so far, no credible evidence was found to support this. Just outside the arched doors leading to the storage area, there were many large-scale gatherings near the pool area and outdoor patio, during the time the documents were on the property.”
