Donald Trump Tweets Conspiracy Theory On Mail Bombs



President Donald Trump on Friday cast doubt on a series of mail bombs sent to CNN and some of his high-profile critics.

The president’s claim bore similarity to statements made by several right-wing pundits, including Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh, who suggested Wednesday that the bomb scares were staged for political purposes.

“Republicans just don’t do this sort of thing,” Limbaugh said on his radio show, adding that the attacks “might serve a purpose” for Democrats.

Earlier Thursday, Fox Business host Lou Dobbs, a longtime confidant of the president, suggested in a since-deleted tweet that the intercepted packages were “fake.”

“Fake News―Fake Bombs,” Dobbs tweeted. “Who could possibly benefit by so much fakery?”
