Trump's morning of conspiracy theories goes there: Bombs are a plot to cost Republican votes

Donald Trump has been tweeting almost continually since 2 AM. In the process, he’s made it absolutely, positively clear that he intends to take not one iota of responsibility for encouraging violence and divisiveness, and he’s moved into full-blown conspiracy theory land, by not only embracing the idea that the pipe bombs being mailed around the country are “fake” but suggesting that the intent of the bombs delivered to the Democratic critics that he has fingered is meant to hurt Republicans.

But Trump’s initial PJ-clad wrangle with conspiracy theories on Friday was over the most critical topic imaginable: Why has his number of Twitter followers stopped growing?

Twitter has removed many people from my account and, more importantly, they have seemingly done something that makes it much harder to join – they have stifled growth to a point where it is obvious to all. A few weeks ago it was a Rocket Ship, now it is a Blimp! Total Bias?

The flatlining of Trump’s Twitter account is clearly a top national concern as midtown Manhattan is shut down to transport a 12th explosive device aimed at someone Trump has fingered as a critic. But Trump momentarily moved beyond his obsession with things that have gone limp to join in the alt-Reich CT circulating around the bombs that are being delivered across the nation.

Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls, and now this “Bomb” stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows – news not talking politics. Very unfortunate, what is going on. Republicans, go out and vote!

Donald Trump is here not only presenting the bombs as “bombs,” joining in the Fox News/AM radio/Breitbart theme that these devices shouldn’t really be treated as threats, despite the way they are filled with explosive material and shrapnel. Trump also goes full bore into the idea that the target of these devices … is the exact opposite of the target of these devices.
