Bret Baier has no clue what will happen at the Republican National Convention.

Baier, the chief political anchor for Fox News, made an appearance on Tuesday’s Late Show with Stephen Colbert to predict that The Donald will in fact clinch the GOP’s nomination, despite efforts by #DumpTrump, #NeverTrump, and similar campaigns pushing for an alternative nominee.

Beyond that, though, the anchor told Colbert that he and other Fox personnel will be ready for anything, particularly when it comes to protests outside the convention. They’re bringing security and packing safety equipment — yes, even gas masks.

“Anything can happen, and this election has proven that we don’t know what’s next,” Baier said.

Unwittingly, Colbert also pokes fun at the credibility of Fox News during the interview. Watch the full clip below:

Media reports said the FBI was searching for possible boxes of classified materials that Trump might have improperly removed from the White House when he left office.

America’s right-wing extremists have been hankering for a civil war for a long time now, and in particular have been eager to start using their guns in defense of Donald Trump ever since he came onto the political scene. They tried to start a civil war on Trump’s behalf after he lost on January 6, 2021.

So to no one’s great surprise, they’re currently flooding social media and right-wing media bandwidth with vows to begin a civil war on Trump’s behalf after the FBI executed a search warrant at the ex-president’s Florida waterfront estate, Mar-a-Lago, and seized evidence in a yet-unspecified investigation. The rhetoric is mostly a mixture of over-the-top hysteria and dark threats, and it’s being wielded by everyone from congressional Republicans to anonymous militiamen.
