Bombing suspect’s van blanketed in pro-Trump bumper stickers

Published

on

Law enforcement officials arrested a man in Florida, identified as Cesar Sayoc, in connection to the 12 mail bombs sent to lawmakers and public officials Friday.

For a brief moment, cable news broadcast a blurry image of a white van thought to belong to the suspect, before law enforcement covered it with a tarp. A resident of Florida later sent an image of the van to CBS Miami, which clearly showed the vehicle was covered in pro-Trump stickers.

A large decal appears to show Donald Trump’s presidential seal. Other pictures of the president abound. Another sticker showcases the GOP elephant symbol. There are a few smaller pictures of Donald Trump as well.

All 12 of the suspect’s targets have fiercely criticized President Donald Trump in the past. The Department of Justice is scheduled to hold a press conference at 2:30 pm EST.

The van also shows Democrats and progressive figures like Michael Moore in the cross-hairs.

Extremist Proud Boys have been trying to ally themselves with Philly cops — and showed up at a local police event: report

Published

Philadelphia is a Democrat-dominated city with a decidedly left-of-center district attorney (Larry Krasner, an ally of Sen. Bernie Sanders) and Black female police commissioner (former Portland, Oregon Police Chief Danielle Outlaw) who was quick to speak out about the death of George Floyd and stress that she encouraged nonviolent protests. But it’s also the city where the infamous Frank Rizzo, who was often accused of police overreach, once served as police commissioner and later, mayor. The far right doesn’t have a lot of influence in Philly, yet in a July 16 article for the Daily Beast, reporter Kelly Weill discusses the efforts of extremist Proud Boys to ally themselves with Philly police officers.

Published

At the outset of the coronavirus pandemic, the Trump administration put medical experts front and center in an effort to reassure the public that it was tackling the health crisis. Now, as NBC News' Josh Lederman points out, the administration is going to war with itself by allowing its "vicious internal power battles" to be on full public display months before an election that polls show Trump is losing.

"In the span of a few days, the White House launched an anonymous smear campaign against Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top infectious disease expert in the nation, then turned on the presidential trade adviser when he did the same thing on the record," Lederman writes, adding that the CDC and the HHS are publicly feuding over hospital data, along with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Vice President Mike Pence dismissing CDC warnings about children returning to school.
