The man authorities allege waged a week-long reign of terror against prominent Democrats by sending crude bombs through the mail is reportedly a former stripper and bodybuilder who attended pro-Trump rallies — often sporting a red MAGA cap — and posted partisan rants online.
And… if you keep reading, he has a history of bomb threats (the proper word for a threat without an actual explosive device is hoax, by the way.)
And there’s this, because the media just has to keep the lie alive.
The potentially explosive devices were intercepted in New York, Washington, D.C., Florida, Delaware and California.
The arrestee himself has said they were hoax devices. I believe it from what I’ve seen and the authorities have confirmed it despite trying not to. They’ve confirmed it by how they have acted; they have not acted as one would act if it was a real bomb. Specifically nobody in their right mind sits around with a real explosive device that might go “boom” at any time and takes pictures of it while it sits on an ordinary office table. Uh, no.
He also seems to like to steal (both of the grand theft and misdemeanor type), seems to have a history with roid-rage drugs and has been charged with ripping off merchants with fraudulent return schemes.
Sounds like an upstanding member of the community.
They won’t get him with “mailing an explosive” unless, of course, there was an explosive and from the evidence — there was no explosive.
Next, that photo of him looks a bit…… light. I wonder why….
