Before the FBI busted accused MAGAbomber Cesar Sayoc, several Fox News personalities suggested that bombs might be a false flag operation conducted by a Democratic operative to rally voters before the midterm elections.
Fox News host Laura Ingraham, among others, laughed about the "Mickey Mouse movie prop" bombs on Thursday night.
On Friday, CNN's Anderson Cooper had Kirsten Powers on his show to talk about the MAGAbomber. Powers was disgusted by the way Fox, where she used to be a contributor, handled the situation.
"These are people who, at least when I worked there, were very respectable," she said. "I just can't imagine them in the past entertaining this sort of thing. Fox has always been conservative-leaning, but this is just completely bonkers. I can't believe what I just saw."
Powers said threats were not new to American politics, but that this sort of thing is unprecedented.
"I was a left-of-center person on Fox News, I got a lot of attacks," she said. "I never dealt with this kind of stuff. So this isn't even about conservatives, this is about people who support Donald Trump. The people who do it are people who support Donald Trump."
