  1. It's only a matter of time before the bomber gives up the fact that he took orders from Donald Trump and got a promise of a pardon. What remains to be seen is if Donald Trump has been skillful enough in erasing all traces connecting himself to this bomber so that Donald Trump can deny giving the orders and promising a pardon. Knowing how stupid Donald Trump is, it won't surprise me if there is one thread he forgot to cut. But maybe not. Maybe Trump will get away with this terrorism unscathed.

  2. MAGA = Making Arrests Great Again from the pro Trump terrorist network of "very fine people'

    And they kept lying that its the democrats staging it all.

  3. it's possible this guy is a democrat trying to make trump look bad..it is also possible trump is a great prez!!ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I've still got 6 things that seem suspicious.
    1) all the packages look alike (easy to spot)

    2) none of them have even been close to being opened by the person targeted

    3) none of them have gone off (except the one the bomb squad blew up)

    4) none of them even look like they could be triggered.

    5) they all contain an "explosive powder" (not gun powder)?

    6) they all are using glass as shrapnel (wouldn't nails work better?)

  5. Shame on you Kerry Sanders!!!!… Report the news properly I've watched you all my life and you were a Anchor man when Ann Bishop was alive and she never lied to the people in South Florida. This is twice I have seen you not tell your stories correctly. "SHAME ON YOU!!!"

  6. I feel terrible for that guy who got tied to that fence but as soon as I heard how long ago that happened I knew there was going to be a trump attack and just a moment later there was blaming Trump for something that happened to this kid in the 90s I feel terrible for what happened to him and I feel terrible that the Democrats and this news Outlet would use it as a political attack

  7. What's more sickening is the fact that this nutcase was able to run around town again considering his history of foul play.  

    The justice system should have figured out the first time they met him the hide and seek game should not have needed to be played again.

  8. Morality. To condone, or not to condone ?
    Parcel bombs, or the killing of Khashoggi. To condone, or not to condone ?
    When one, President or King, seeks not the universal moral stance. Morality, is of the people supporting the President; or King. To condone, or not to condone ?
    Any person, or persons. President, or King. To condone, or not to condone ?

  9. HE HAND DELIVERS ALL THESE PACKAGES TO STATES ACROSS THIS COUNTRY IN A VERY SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME AND THEY ARE ALL FAKE BOMBS BECAUSE HE REALLY WANTS TO DO THEM HARM. NO POST OFFICE MARKS ACROSS THEM STAMPS. FAKE BOMS. WANT TO DO HARM? I CALL B.S. THIS IS A SET UP JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHER SET UPS, JUST SO THEY CAN TRY AND TURN THE @ PEOPLE AND HAVE SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT BECAUSE THEIR TRUMP/RUSSIA COLLUSION FIRE GOT DRENCHED. GIVE US CITIZENS A BREAK WITH ALL YOUR SCEMES AND CONS WILL YA PLEASE TRY TO BE MORE HUMAN NOT SO MUCH HEATHEN.

  10. WOW, they found this person the bomber in less than 48 hours, and it takes 3-5 days to get a letter in the mail from the United States Post Office, and then they give CHINA free shipping. WE ARE F**KED PEOPLE!!!!!!

  11. How many criminals especially bomb terrorists run around in a highly noticable van that screams "catch me as fast as you can!"…???

  12. Why is every story in the news about fearing something? Bombs, murderers, storms, flu, etc. No wonder the newest generations are a bunch of snowflakes. All fearmongering. We didn't grow up scared. Fear is about controlling sheeple. Good luck all you perpetually offended kiddos!

  13. 45 is the greatest snowflake blaming media as enemy of the people all presidents endure unflattering media but never made their personal dislikes as a hit list . Sleep well and remember you are a president you aren't on a TV show this is our lives in your little hands

  14. P.O.S. MAGA SUPPORTERS… scum…all of them…every last single one of them.

    Delusional nincompoops that believe in the trash spewing out of TRUMP's mouth so much they try to get away with threats and intimidation.

  15. Gee. What would Trump supporters say if a rabid Obama supporter mailed booms to prominent republicans and to the Koch brothers? How would Fox News cover such an event? Do you think they would criticize Obama and his supporters?

  16. Trump must take some responsibility but ths t will Never happen. Even though his mouth is directly responsible for this country being so divided with hate and Disdain for one another. Was this Russia's price for Donald Trumps presidency?

  17. Megyn..blackface stuff. Lose the job completely? Geez…slip up for a second and no forgiveness…yeah dumb comment but still ..wipe it all out? Crazy.

  18. I dont think megyn kelly meant racia
    l intent, she was talking about halloween and pepple imitating people, you can tell easily when someone is deliberately malicious. On saturday night live billy crystal parodied sammy davis junior no outcry over that. When you lose ypur job over comment not maliciously intended, yyou wonder about freedom of speech, George Orwell was right we are being watched in everything we say and do. Is that not a form of communism in a softer way? She apologized. We all make mistakes,

  19. Is this sad and most dangerous thing about this whole matter he is not the only one! There are other men and women that feel just like he does about the dear leader Donald Trump and that is a dangerous scenario and a deadly scenario

  20. Calling CNN, MSNBC, and other left leaning networks as fake news was not, and never will be a call to violence. VP Pence, Cruz, Sarah Sanders, and other GOP leaders have been harassed, tormented, and chased from public places along with their families from liberals, leftists, and anarchists how many times now. House Member Steve Scalise was shot and almost killed by an anger management head head case and devout Bernie Supporters. Scalise's shooting didnt fit the left leaning mainstream media narrative so it was never called out, and barely a whisper by Democrats in condemnation of the shooting. Its okay for far left Democrats to shoot, threaten (Madonna, Griffith, Holder, Waters, Booker, HRC) and use mob mentality disrupters to cause problems but when one unhinged career criminal does a despicable crime then the hypocrites arise from everywhere to unjustly lay blame on Trump.

    American media can also tone down the rhetoric, NBC, ABC, CNN, and MSNBC have been largely critical of the President, almost unfairly. Nobody except Fox Network has called out Joe Biden, Corey Booker, Maxine Watters, Eric Holder, Madonna, Cathy Griffith, Robert DiNiro, and even Peter Fonda have all publicly mentioned violence against Trump. In a sad way Trump and his base are always on the defensive, these are fellow Americans and both sides bear responsibility to be more civil.

  21. Our great President Trump remains firmly in control. They got Megyn and tore her down over inoculant statements, but they can't do the same to an upstanding President!!

  22. I wonder if authorities in the law enforcement community will be able to determine the source of the bomber's hit list? This could take some real sleuthing. I seem to have heard nearly all of the names somewhere in the context of being dehumanized and accused of criminality and immorality. But where? The use off misspelling is a suspicious clue…

  23. *A HOUSE DIVIDED AGAINST ITSELF WILL NOT STAND*
    YOU GUYS NEED TO STOP PUTTING ALL THESE PROBLEMS ON TRUMP. THIS COUNTRY HAS BEEN
    SICK FAR LONGER THAN HE'S BEEN PRESIDENT . I HATE TO SEE WHAT WOULD HAVE BECOME OF THIS COUNTRY IF HILARY WAS IN OFFICE . HOW ABOUT WE STOP BLAMING EACH OTHER AND COME TOGETHER AS A NATION TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER.

  24. Well, there it is. The other side. Teleprompter Trump v Twitter Trump. The REAL Donald Trump is out there stirring up as much disruption, hate and discord in our nation as he can, just a few days after his MAGAbomber sent out a flurry of mail bombs in his name.

  25. Americans, that hated Obama, wore shirts with a Target on his head and somehow they didn't show up on FBI radar. If you're threatening anyone's life on a t-shirt, social media, video, etc you should be considered a threat and should be monitored at all times.

  26. Start with stopping ur own b.s
    ☡Black young repub..visitors around election =LAUGHABLE 😂😂😂😂ALL SICKENING!!!!!..
    bye MEAGAN good luck..wface..RESEARCH b4 OPENNING mouth & still fire im not sure abt that if she's ignorant to knowledge or NOT 🤔🤔🤔

    R.I.P Matt just sad period!!! Traevon a young man discriminated against as well should get the same treatment against A lunatic who later put a double barrel to d head. All our kids killed because of this deserve the SAME [email protected]

  27. How can people say it could have been worse- how much worse do things have to be before Americans wake up – it’s 2018 in the USA.

  28. Portraits of dranged demoniac criminal hate people is not good. Some people in this country just see the photo and it leaves an impression.

  29. At least the Future Farmers had the decency to cancel a scheduled fertilizer symposium: "Zyklon B – Tme for Another Look?" The grandson of Jewish chemist Fritz Haber said the rebranding his grandfather's invention will emphasize "Plants, Not People" and reasoned that the ongoing worldwide popularity of Fanta, created by the reich subsidiary of Coca-Cola suggests there is a place for the long scourged pesticide in the farms of tomorrow, but conceded that now may not be the time to put it on a student's supply shelf, while pointing out that agricultural authorities in Israel were very interested in its potential, and will be soon using it in some experimental Gaza Strip farms, Palestinian authorities, in a rare display of cross-cultural understanding, issued a statement as follows: "Oy!"

  30. EXCELLENT, Farred, Excellent! Oh, that our leaders on both sides of the aisle would listen and take it to heart and translate it to actions of understanding, mercy and compassion. Oh, that GOD would wash my country with Mercy and we would learn kindness and compassion with so SIMPLE acts of just human decency!

  31. We need tough crime laws. Stop coddling thugs . execute murderers. On that's right liberals are against that.

  32. They hurried up and found someone to shut the people up and stop the panic… DNA the same day i seriously doubt it

  33. I'm having a hard time with Trump supporters believing everything he says. I support Barack Obama but I didn't believe everything he told me. It's like Trump can do no wrong he is just a man his supporters act like it's the second coming of Jesus. How could people be so weak minded.

  34. From 2016's "In my day these protestors would be carried out on stretchers!" To 2018's praising of the politician who body-slammed a Guardian reporter "My kind of guy!" Trump is constantly glorifying violence!
