It took nearly no time for deranged right-wingers to come up with conspiracy theories pinning the explosives mailed to multiple Democrats and CNN on anything but Donald Trump's violent rhetoric against them.
Many pro-Trump Twitter pundits managed to spin the suspicious and "potentially destructive devices" mailed to former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, ex-Attorney General Eric Holder and others into "false flag" claims.
"I’m going to go ahead and state that there is a 0% chance that these 'suspicious packages' were sent out by conservatives," Talking Point USA's Candace Owens tweeted. "The only thing 'suspicious' about these packages, is their timing. Caravans, fake bomb threats—these leftists are going ALL OUT for midterms."
Dinesh D'Souza, a right-wing documentarian whose campaign finance violations were pardoned by Trump earlier this year, floated conspiracy theories while making jokes about the mailed bombs.
"I hear the FBI squeezed lemon juice on the suspicious packages and a very faint lettering revealed a single word: DEMOCRATS," D'Souza tweeted earlier in the afternoon.

He also retweeted a highly-trafficked claim by InfoWars reporter Millie Weaver suggesting the bombs were planted by Democrats to embolden their base ahead of the midterm elections.

Never one to miss a conspiracy bandwagon, Michael Flynn, Jr., son of the president's disgraced and indicted ex-national security adviser Mike Flynn, also joined in.
As The Daily Beast noted, Flynn Jr. tweeted that the mailed bombs are the "worst political stunt" he'd ever seen and suggested there was something "suspicious" about Democratic politicians being mailed bombs days after liberal investor George Soros received a similar package.
After deleting his initial tweets, Flynn Jr. then doubled down on the "false flag" claim.
"I don't know if it's a false flag," he tweeted. "However, I hate the timing as it provides a PERFECT narrative for @TheDemocrats going into the mid terms [sic]."
