Trump-loving conspiracy theorist busted in terrorist plot to bomb Muslim community

Published

An upstate New York teen arrested for allegedly planning to bomb a Muslim community posted online about how he wanted to kill all Muslims — and in praise of Donald Trump.

The Daily Beast reported Wednesday that 18-year-old Vincent Vetromile obsessively posted about his hatred of Muslims prior to being arrested along with friends of roughly the same age in Rochester, New York last Friday.

“Kids have been shown to be terrorists too and have killed our people,” Vetromile wrote on Twitter. “The Koran tells them to kill us so they’re all GUILTY.”

“KILL THEM ALL and nobody will be left to attack us,” he tweeted in 2016.

Vetromile was arrested along with 20-year-old Brian Colaneri, 18-year-old Andrew Crysel and an unnamed person under the age of 18 for criminal conspiracy and weapon possession. The group allegedly planned to attack Islamberg, a small Muslim community founded in the 1980s that’s been targeted by right-wing conspiracy theorists in recent years.

Along with his vitriol about Muslims, Vetromile was, the Beast reported, an “avid Trump supporter” — and even invited the president to his Eagle Scout ceremony.

“Dear @POTUS , I invited you to my Eagle Scout ceremony weeks ago, it was tonight,” he tweeted in 2017. “Wish you had come but I get you’re busy. Thanks for MAGA.”

He was also a proponent of the president’s border wall.

“Anyone who’s played Minecraft knows if you want to keep out people who want to hurt you, shoot you, or blow themselves up, you build a wall and anyone who gets over/under/around the wall illegally you kill until nobody else crosses into your land,” Vetromile tweeted.

In 2016, the Rochester teen posted on Instagram that he was looking to start a “resistance faction” in the area to fight “cruelties and mistreatment of the general populace by government.”

‘Rather than leading — he lies’: MSNBC panel says Trump is a ‘danger to the country’ because he can’t be trusted

Published

on

MSNBC commentators, former assistant US Attorney Maya Wiley and Rick Wilson, explained that President Donald Trump's most significant barrier is making it past his own lies to save America from the coronavirus.

"There's a case tonight being tested in Walton County, Florida. The heart of Trump country," said Wilson, referring to the panhandle county east of Pensacola. "That's not going to be something you can just walk away from if it turns out to be a real case. We're seeing these things popping up all over. The safe bet was always to say, 'This could be bad. We'll do everything we can to stop it.' But he can't stop himself from self-aggrandizing and lying about things. And it's actually -- setting aside my normal criticism of Trump -- this is a danger to the country that he is not a trustworthy person for the American people. Even people who like him now he BS's them all the time. Now, if he says it's not a problem and people are being hospitalized, it is a problem."

Trump ‘just wants this problem to go away’: President desperate to get coronavirus ‘off his plate’

Published

on

President Donald Trump is desperate for the coronavirus problem to go away, and he doesn't exactly care how it happens.

According to New York Times reporter Annie Karni, sources are telling her that the biggest concern Trump has is more about the markets than the deaths of Americans from the virus.

"First, let's establish, this is a president who tried to change science with a Sharpie when it came to hurricane path prediction," said MSNBC host Brian Williams. "That picture lasts forever."

"Even his allies on Fox and his allies outside the White House were kind of channeling to that proverbial audience of one that this was a great opportunity to look presidential and to tell the facts," said Karni. The Donald Trump we saw out there in the briefing room was very casual, kind of left the facts to the other people that accompanied him out there. But he clearly publicly and privately just wants this problem to go away. He wants to downplay it. He thinks -- he has called people who are talking about fears about it alarmist. He doesn't want to be alarmist, and he's kind of holding on to any comment that makes it sound like this will naturally be a problem that is removed from his plate. That's what we saw publicly, and that's what he's been saying privately as well."

Seth Meyers: You know Trump isn’t the chief law enforcement officer because he couldn’t pass the physical

Published

on

"Late Night" host Seth Meyers warned that the United States is sliding into authoritarianism under President Donald Trump.

Sounding the alarm Wednesday evening, Meyers cited reports that Trump was making lists of disloyal people, purging them from their jobs, hiring unqualified cronies in top posts, and claiming he has the right to interfere in criminal cases.

While speaking to the press last week, Trump even announced that he's allowed to be involved in all criminal cases because he's the chief law enforcement officer of the United States. It's actually a title used for the attorney general.
