Media Suggest President Trump Is Indirectly Responsible For Suspicious Packages

Mike Brest | Reporter

Reports of potentially explosive devices were sent to the Obamas, Clintons, CNN and left-wing billionaire George Soros spread throughout the media on Tuesday, and without any knowledge of the perpetrator, many have already begun blaming President Trump.

The package CNN received at their Time Warner building in New York City was similar to those sent to the Obamas and Clintons, according to the New York Police Department.

NBC News reported that the devices arrived in manila envelopes. The return address was that of Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose office was also evacuated after receiving a suspicious package.

Left-wing billionaire George Soros was also sent an explosive device on Monday.

Without any knowledge of who sent the packages, many people blamed the president, alleging that his rhetoric about the Clintons, Obamas and CNN has encouraged terrorist behavior toward left-leaning media and Democrat politicians.

CNN’s Jim Sciutto, who was on air when their building was evacuated, later said of the targets, “They’re all on that list. You’ve just listed a number of folks [whom] the president has accused of being unfair to him — that the president has publicly attacked at times.”

MSNBC morning host Joe Scarborough quote-tweeted Ivanka Trump condemning the bombs and asked if she would also condemn her “father using the presidential bully pulpit” to “stir up hatred” against them.

Philippe Renies, a former Hillary Clinton aide, appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Monday, during which he blamed the president for the bomb sent to Soros, prior to the other packages were identified. (RELATED: Tucker Cracks Up When Former Hillary Aide Says Soros Bomb Is Trump’s Fault)


Musician Mikel Jollett also accused the president of “encouraging terrorism.”
