First a bomb at Soros home. Now Explosive Devices sent to Hillary Clinton’s home in New York and Barack Obama’s home in Washington, Secret Service says.

What do we expect when Trump runs around the country 24/7 demonizing Democrats at mob rallies?…
“Excuse me, that sounds like a fire alarm”—@jimsciutto says while reporting on suspected mail bombs sent to Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Soros. Moments later @CNN had to evacuate Time Warner bldg in NYC. Devices made w/ pipe & wire, per NYPD. #Terrorism
Entire Time Warner Center w/dozens of businesses besides @CNN has been evacuated, reports @AthenaCNN. Important to note this terrorist act was at CNN’s NY offices during its morning broadcast from NYC. #CNN has offices elsewhere. Seems bomber wanted the drama of on-air discovery.
#BREAKING Suspicious device/package sent to CNN mailroom was addressed to former CIA Director JOHN BRENNAN. Another prime target of Trump’s demonization. Recall Trump, on suggestion of GOP Senator Rand Paul, revoked his security clearance after his criticism of Trump-Putin summit
Soros, Clinton, Obama, Brennan, former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. Democrats, democracy promoter, critic of Trump. Those are the targets of today's Trump-inspired terrorism in NY, DC, Florida. SO FAR. And there's disinformation about package sent to WH.
The fish rots from the head. Toxic language from a POTUS has consequences. It incites people to do bad sh*t, whether it’s Saudis dismembering a dissident journalist, Russians invading our elections, or terrorists sending bombs to intimidate and silence the press & Trump critics.
Notice both WH and Pence statement (which Trump just RT'd) call mail bombs to CNN & others "attempted" attacks. Bombs didn't explode, but these are still terrorist acts. Letter bombs, esp to the press, are intended to terrorize—to intimidate, harass and chill criticism of Trump.
NEW: ANOTHER package was addressed to Obama Attorney General ERIC HOLDER, per CNN. The return address was former DNC chair and Florida Democrat Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. That’s reportedly the same return label on mail bombs to Soros, Clinton, Obama, Brennan.
NYPD: Pipe bomb device appear to be “live.” Package also contained white powder.
NYC Mayor: Device sent to CNN was an “Act of Terror.” Hateful messages have to stop. Starts at the top.
FBI: Multiple serial packages, began Monday w/ Soros
NY Gov: Elected leaders must set the tone
MORE: Dem NY Governor Cuomo just said another suspicious package was sent to his NYC office too.

Pro-Trump terrorist/s wanted to kill a lot of people. CNN device was a LIVE pipe bomb, says NYPD. This is attempted mass murder of Democrats and democrats—who Trump demonizes daily.
Here’s the envelope that contained live bomb sent to @CNN. Notice the misspellings in the address labels: “Brenan” (Brennan), “Shultz” (Schultz), “Florids” (Florida).

Bomber must listen to Trump’s rallies b/c Brennan works at @MSNBC but attacking CNN is part of the Trump show.
George Soros son: We're used to being attacked, but mail bombs are new. Nationalists & anti-Semites before Trump's election were fringe extremists. They demonized Soros b/c they rejected democracy & institutions helping everyone have an equal voice. Now demonization is new normal
ANOTHER ONE: 7th live explosive device sent to California Democrat Maxine Waters, another prominent Trump critic and one of Trump’s regular targets during his campaign rally rages demonizing Democrats. (Source: @CNN)
Hmm VP, WH, now @IvankaTrump calls mail bombs "attempted" acts of violence. That's the best they can do to try to mitigate the devastating impact of Trump's vile attacks? These are violent acts, even if the live bombs don't explode. Terrorism's goal is to terrorize—not just kill.
Yup, "attempted acts" is the official Republican talking point about the series of live pipe bombs sent in the mail to 7 prominent targets of Trump, including CNN. GOP leader McConnell uses the same minimizing language in a feeble attempt to minimize Trump-inspired terrorism.
🔥CNN President Jeff Zucker: Total and complete lack of understanding at WH about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media. The President—and esp the White House Press Secy—should understand their words matter. Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that.
GOP hoped Trump would rise to POTUS. But he's only become more toxic. Republicans can't admit he's profoundly unfit+ dangerous, so dismiss his attacks & gaslight WE're hysterical for taking "jokes" seriously. Mail bombs to ppl he attacks IS serious. Outrage is normal—not hysteria
Trump's response to mass assassination attempts w/ bombs sent to HIS targeted enemies—including CNN? Further attack media! Orwellian much? Also falsely blames MSM for precisely HIS propaganda media content—hateful, bad, purposely false. FoxNews has been poisoning minds for years.
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY TERRORISM—NYC Mayor says at NYPD press conference on explosive devices (now 10!) and manhunt for bomber. Amazing, how many questions were about “hoax bombs.” This shows the impact of right-wing FoxNews media working overtime pushing conspiracy theory propaganda
Trump Propagandists Push Conspiracy "Hoax Bomb" Theory with "Fake News, Fake Bombs" Slogan.

Republicans often create punchy propaganda & repeat it till it's viral, drowning reality. To do this w/ terrorism & serial assassination attempts is beyond gross.…
