Domestic Terrorism: MAGA Bomber Targets Obama, Clintons, CNN With Pipe Bombs

Domestic Terrorism: MAGA Bomber Targets Obama, Clintons, CNN With Pipe Bombs October 24, 2018

Dubbed The MAGA Bomber by Twitter, a terrorist sends explosive devices to leading Democrats and other targets of President Trump.

No doubt inspired by the violent rhetoric of Donald Trump, a right-wing terrorist(s) is sending  explosive devices to individuals and organizations attacked by President Trump.

The New York Times reports:

Pipe bombs were sent to former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as to CNN’s offices in New York, sparking an intense investigation on Wednesday into whether a bomber is going after targets that have often been the subject of right-wing ire.

NBC News reports:

The Time Warner Center in New York, which houses CNN’s office, was evacuated Wednesday after a suspicious package arrived that appeared to contain a “live explosive device,” authorities said.

The package was similar to suspicious packages found near the New York home of Bill and Hillary Clinton and another sent to former President Barack Obama in Washington, D.C., earlier in the week, law enforcement officials said. Another package was addressed to former Attorney General Eric Holder and but sent back to the fraudulent return address, that of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.

During a briefing on the package sent to CNN, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said a device had also been sent to his Manhattan office.

In a statement earlier today Vice President Mike Pence condemned the terrorist attack via Twitter:

We condemn the attempted attacks against fmr Pres Obama, the Clintons, @CNN & others. These cowardly actions are despicable & have no place in this Country. Grateful for swift response of @SecretService, @FBI & local law enforcement. Those responsible will be brought to justice.

In an anemic response to a national emergency, President Trump responded to the crisis by simply re-tweeting Pence’s tweet with the comment:

I agree wholeheartedly!

While little is known about the terrorist(s) responsible for this attack on leading Democrats and others, many are certain that the attack is motivated by the vitriolic and destructive rhetoric or President Trump, who often attacks and smears Obama, the Clintons, CNN and others.

In fact, Twitter has dubbed the domestic terrorist(s) behind the bombing attempts “The MAGA bomber” and using the hashtag #MAGAbomber.

For example:

Bottom line: A domestic terrorist or terrorists dubbed The MAGA Bomber  is sending explosive devices to people and organizations that Donald Trump has condemned and targeted for abuse as president of the United States.

And so it goes.
