Subject: RE: BS: Bombs of Oct. sent to Barack, Hillary...
Holy Shit. I was kidding but the Trumpist Assholes are serious!
Minutes after news broke of “potential explosive devices” being mailed to the homes of former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, along with CNN’s New York City studio, the dark corners of the conservative Internet were declaring it a plot to gin up empathy for Democrats.
Cries that the bomb threats was merely a “false flag” operation were evident on Twitter and pro-Trump forums.
Popular talk radio host Rush Limbaugh hinted that the attempted bombings were set-up by Democrats, saying they would serve a political “purpose.”
Frank Gaffney, an Islamophobe who has held posts on Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) presidential campaign and in the Ronald Reagan White House, suggested the packages were a “deflection” technique. “. “So let’s determine not only who is responsible for these bombs, but whether they were trying to deflect attention from the Left’s mobs.”
John Cardillo, a former NYPD officer and popular right-wing radio host, initially denounced political violence on both sides of the aisle, but quickly broadcast his skepticism that the threats were legit. “Just too coincidental that two weeks before Election Day... explosive devices show up in the mailboxes of Soros, Clinton, and Obama.”
"In a statement, the White House condemned “the attempted violent attacks.”
You mean the violent attacks instigated and supported by Agent Orange's and his cultists' hate speech, dontcha Bruce?
Besides, the POSOTUS & Vice-POSOTUS can't open their mouths without lying- so who gives a shit what they say?
