Fox Business host Stuart Varney concluded on Wednesday that “toxic politics” are to blame for potential explosive devices sent to top Democrats.
Varney made the pronouncement while delivering the news that Michelle and Barack Obama had been targeted, as well as Bill and Hillary Clinton.
“This is a major development,” Varney explained. “These are explosive devices — I’ll describe them that way — sent to two former U.S. presidents.”
“It’s totally unacceptable,” Fox Business contributor Elizabeth McDonald said. “It is outrageous, a disgrace and unacceptable.
“It’s toxic politics at its worst,” Varney agreed. “It bleeds over into absolute violence. And that’s absolutely wrong.”
Former restaurant CEO Andy Puzder added: “Nobody should condone this.”
“Absolutely not!” Varney said. “Everybody should be speaking out, saying, ‘Don’t do this, don’t devolve to this.'”
“The country is so divided, there’s so much anger out there, so much resentment,” Puzder said. “It has to get toned down if we’re going to make any progress.”

Matt Gaetz insists he wasn’t paying ‘much attention’ as he got burned during hearing – but video shows otherwise
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) lied when he was speaking to CNN's Manu Raju that he wasn't paying much attention when Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) explained that members with DUIs probably shouldn't be attacking someone for drug usage.
“I didn’t pay much attention to it ...I’m focused on the president .. I don’t think Americans are hanging on a traffic incident I had a decade ago,” Gaetz told Raju.
It wasn't factually accurate as videos show Gaetz paying quite a bit of attention and seemingly upset.

White House ‘shamed into submission’: Senate finally passes Armenian genocide bill despite Trump’s objections
In a direct refutation of the repeated objections of the Trump administration this Thursday, the Senate unanimously passed a resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide.
As USA Today points out, the historic move will likely complicate US-Turkey relations since it acknowledges that Turkey, then known as the Ottoman Empire, carried out the systematic killings of 1.5 million Armenians from 1915 to 1923.
‘It’s all distractions’: CNN panel obliterates GOP for totally refusing to discuss Trump’s conduct
A CNN panel on Thursday obliterated House Republicans for once again completely ignoring the substance of allegations against President Donald Trump and instead throwing out numerous distractions intended to deflect attention from the president's actions.
"It's been distractions about the Bidens, it's been distractions about conspiracy theories about Ukraine's involvement in the election," said CNN legal analyst Carrie Cordero. "Yesterday, it was distractions about FISA and FISA so-called abuse. It was distractions from Congressman Gohmert reading calls from 1943! It's been all distractions and they won't wrestle with the actual conduct."
