NEW: With the country on edge over a widening pipe-bomb scare, talk of national unity quickly gave way to finger-pointing.

It's a moment that's given some pause to consider what the hell we're doing to ourselves for political gain…but the President seems to see it as a time to double down on divisiveness, refuse to own any responsibility and blame the media, which was just targeted by a bomb. pic.twitter.com/RuKw7fi0E0

You say there are good people on both sides of a neo-Nazi rally.
Suggest that immigrants are all murders, rapists and gang members.
Praise a politician who assaulted a reporter.
And it’s CNN’s fault someone sent them a bomb?

NBC News: Law enforcement sources say that at this point in the review of the bombs it is clear that some were incapable of exploding. Whether that was a design flaw or intentional is not yet known. Analysis is ongoing
They say to treat any suspicious package as if it were real.

Weird how someone thought the targets of daddy’s attacks – including those he called to be jailed – deserved to be assassinated.

Republicans are doing better than Democrats in early voting—and better than 2016.

Good Lord. How stupid do you think we’ve become?
Migrants are over 1,000 miles away from the US border and could be over a month away from safely reaching America.
Wasting US troops on the border is dumb enough. Having DHS ignore bomb threats for a campaign stunt is horrific. https://t.co/gAsUmqoj1D

So, kids, the moral of the story is this. Say some racist stuff on TV or sexually harass your co-workers and you, too, can walk away with as much as $69m – $100m. And if you do both (hell, maybe even at the same time) the sky is the limit! #MegaMillions is for chumps, am I right?

Facebook facilitated Vote Leave's cheating in Brexit, authorised Cambridge Analytica's illegal harvesting app, let Russians access US voter data and allowed their platform to become a weapon of mass disinformation. The least they could do is pay a fine. https://t.co/XqrZvWeh4G
