Donald Trump has been making light out of the MAGA Bomber’s attempts on the lives of government officials and CNN for days, even blaming the media for the attacks on Twitter yesterday, claiming that people are angry over the “fake news media” making up stories just to slander his good name.
Now, two more officials have received suspicious packages, and thankfully, they did not detonate.
According to ABC 7 Chicago:
“Authorities have recovered an eleventh suspected package in the widening investigation into a mass mail bombing campaign, with the latest target being Democratic Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, multiple sources told ABC News.”
“The latest package addressed to Booker was found Friday morning at or near Opa-locka in South Florida, sources said.”
Booker is not the only one to receive a Friday package, James Clapper also got one.
NY Police Commissioner James O’Neill gave this statement to the press:
“We are investigating all this with great precision. I can say with certainty that we will identify and arrest the person or people responsible for these acts. Law enforcement professionals do not care about the politics involved in these acts.”
The head of New York postal inspection says that “In terms of tracking, we have over 600,000 postal employees out there right now. We have the eyes and ears looking for these packages. I will say in the postal network, we have found nothing in the last eight hours. So what we have so far is what we have, 10 parcels.”
The White House gave the following statement in regards to who is responsible for this:
“The president is certainly not responsible for sending suspicious packages to someone, no more than Bernie Sanders was responsible for a supporter of his shooting up a Republican baseball field practice last year. The idea that this is at the hands of the president is absolutely ridiculous.”
Former CIA Director James Brennan tweeted this after the bomb sent to CNN was addressed to him:
“Your inflammatory rhetoric, insults, lies, & encouragement of physical violence are disgraceful. Clean up your act….try to act Presidential. The American people deserve much better. BTW, your critics will not be intimidated into silence.”
