Amusing thought when they announced on the news today that the common thread behind all these mail bombs was that they were sent to enemies of Trump.
Also, whoever the bomber is is marginally competent - any competent bomber would have (1) disguised each device better, they look exactly like a reference x-ray of a bomb in the photos on the news (2) made them harder to disarm. None of these devices have actually exploded, as far as I have heard, which is not exactly something you would expect from well made bombs.
So I was thinking : say the police trace the bombs. Excited, they find the trail leads right back to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave! They burst into the Lincoln bedroom and find the President, surrounded by bombmaking supplies and a “how to make mail bombs for dummies” instruction manual, as well as the phone he tweets from!
The secret service step in, send the police away, prevent any evidence being removed from the scene, and now the it’s all over the news.
How would the Republican party react to knowing the President was a felon and attempted murderer? What action would be taken by Congress, assuming that the President’s cabinet members refuse to do anything?
