Robert De Niro Is The 10th Trump Opponent Targeted By Bombing Attempt This Week

Robert De Niro Bomb Trump Obama Clinton

On Monday a suspicious package was intercepted at the home of billionaire Democratic political donor George Soros. It turned out to be a pipe bomb.
In the subsequent days homemade explosives have been sent to the Obamas, the Clintons, CNN, and others — all public figures whom Donald Trump has called out by name.
Now you can add Robert De Niro to that list. Thankfully a security employee who had seen the news about the bombs spotted the package and called the police.

The former VP is an obvious political opponent; the Godfather II star has also become a vocal critic of the president, notably saying “F**k Trump” during a speech at the Tonys.
New York City mayor Bill de Blasio said on Thursday:

“That device [sent to De Niro] was very similar to the other devices that have been located in the last 48 hours and it appears to have come from the same sender. This is an effort to terrorize people politically.”

There are already conspiracy theories making the rounds, calling it all a “political stunt.”
It’s not. It’s attempted murder.
It’s domestic terrorism, and it’s no surprise that many on Twitter believe it appears to be inspired by the words of the President of the United States of America, who has often mentioned each of the intended victims by name in his hate-filled rhetoric in which he calls his opponents “evil” and the “enemies of the people.”
There are people who believe every single nonsensical thing this man says, and he’s telling them there are monsters trying to destroy their lives because they’re “evil people.”
These are his words.
And if you thought this would be the line where Trump would back off from his rhetoric, you haven’t been paying attention.
At a rally Wednesday night he actually victim blamed the media, essentially saying they were responsible for the attacks because of their lies, a claim he doubled down on via Twitter:

“Purposely false.”
He is continuing to tell his supporters they are being lied to for nefarious purposes.
“Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST”??
This is completely unacceptable.
We don’t know what it will take for America to wake up to this, but please please PLEASE don’t let it be one of these attacks succeeding.
