You would think that bombs literally showing up in the mailboxes of several of the country’s most prominent politicians and donors would convince members of both parties that it’s time to cool it with the rhetoric, take a step back, and unify in the name of peace. Even if that truce didn’t last but a week, you’d think we could get there. Unfortunately, Democrats did not even wait until the end of the day before blaming President Trump for this psychopath’s actions.

Following the news that pipe bombs – some operational and some not – had been sent to George Soros, John Brennan, Maxine Waters, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama, President Trump gave a statement condemning the threat wholly and unreservedly.

“This egregious conduct is abhorrent to everything we hold dear and sacred as Americans,” Trump said Wednesday. “The full weight of our government is being deployed to conduct this investigation and bring those responsible for these despicable acts to justice. We will spare no resources or expense in this effort. And I just want to tell you that in these times, we have to unify. We have to come together and send one very clear, strong, unmistakable message that acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America.”

Democrats decided, however, that there was political hay to be made from the attack.

In a joint statement, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Donald Trump bore responsibility for the attempted bombings.

“We listened with great interest to the president’s remarks this afternoon,” they wrote. “President Trump’s words ring hollow until he reverses his statements that condone acts of violence. Time and time again, the president has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions: expressing support for the congressman who body-slammed a reporter, the neo-Nazis who killed a young woman in Charlottesville, his supporters at rallies who get violent with protestors, dictators around the world who murder their own citizens, and referring to the free press as the enemy of the people.”

This is an absolutely reprehensible statement that only makes sense inside the liberal bubble. Trump did not condone most of the things they say he condoned, and for those that he did, well, the Democrats need to learn the meaning of a joke. To act as though Trump has ever said anything that would incite someone to bomb his critics is lunacy. They might buy that crap over at Vox.com or DailyKos, but not in the rest of the country.

We could have had a perfect moment to come together and recognize that we don’t want to live in the kind of country where idiots send out bombs in the mail to their political enemies. Instead, we live in a world where even THIS is just an excuse to keep on campaigning. Pathetic.
