From tea party to pee tarty, this is where we are now with right-wing craziness pimped by previous guy. One guy storms an FBI field office because he thinks he’s Crispus Attucks, and is now in a standoff hiding in an Ohio field.

Police have exchanged gunfire with an armed man after he made threats at an FBI building in Cincinnati, according to reports.
The incident began Thursday morning after a man armed with a gun showed up to the building and began making threats, the FBI said in a statement.
“At approximately 9 AM this morning an armed subject attempted to breach the Visitor Screening Facility at #FBI Cincinnati,” the FBI’s Cincinnati bureau said on Twitter. “After an alarm and a response by FBI special agents, the subject fled north onto Interstate 71.”
Police later exchanged gunfire with the suspect after he pulled over, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said in a statement to HuffPost.
Clinton County, Ohio’s Emergency Management Agency has issued a lockdown order for a 1-mile radius near the FBI building. The suspect is described as wearing a gray shirt and body armor, and was driving a Ford Crown Victoria.
The FBI has faced increased threats over the past couple days following the execution of a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago, the Florida home of former President Donald Trump. The search appeared to be related to classified material Trump brought with him after he left the White House.
