Trump’s deplorables strike again as the US Secret Service intercepts “suspicious packages” sent to former President Barack Obama. According to media reports, “explosive devices” were also sent to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s house. The packages were very similar to one sent to George Soros — mail bombs.

Let this sink in….two weeks before the 2018 midterm elections, explosive devices were sent to Democrats — Soros, Obama, and Clinton. This comes as Donald Trump continues to whip his basket of deplorables into a frenzy to go after Democrats and the media.
Here’s the Secret Service’s statement in its entirety:
The U.S. Secret Service has intercepted two suspicious packages addressed to Secret Service protectees.
Late on October 23, 2018, the Secret Service recovered a single package addressed to Former First Lady Hillary Clinton in Westchester County, New York. Early this morning, October 24, 2018, a second package addressed to the residence of Former President Barack Obama was intercepted by Secret Service personnel in Washington, DC.
The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such. Both packages were intercepted prior to being delivered to their intended location. The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them.
The Secret Service has initiated a full scope criminal investigation that will leverage all available federal, state, and local resources to determine the source of the packages and identify those responsible.
A device was also sent to CNN’s Manhattan offices and was addressed to John Brennan, whose security clearance was revoked over his sharp criticisms of Donald Trump.
Trump is inciting violence because that’s the only way he believes the Republican Party can win elections. This is not normal.
