Newsweek links GOP Governor Candidate to Bombs

The legacy news magazine Newsweek, which now has only an online presence, posted a story Wednesday afternoon suggesting the Republican candidate for governor in Florida was to blame for the bomb threats targeting President Obama, Hillary Clinton and other Democratic figures, because he used the common metaphor “the kiss of death” in an email dispatch the day before.

Newsweek’s headline was: “Ron DeSantis campaign said he wanted Hillary Clinton’s Florida visit to be ‘kiss of death’ day before bomb threat.”

The magazine acknowledge there are “no allegations that the DeSantis email and the suspicious packages are in any way connected.”

But in the next sentence Newsweek said: “The language used coincides with concerns expressed by critics that certain rhetoric and conspiracy theories levied by the president and other conservatives could promote acts of violence.”

Law enforcement authorities said Wednesday morning they believe the “potential explosive devices” sent to former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, former President Obama, former Attorney General Eric Holder, billionaire philanthropist George Soros and CNN in New York City are linked.

The U.S. Secret Service intercepted a device Tuesday sent to Clinton’s Chappaqua, New York, home and another to Obama in Washington, D.C. In Manhattan, CNN evacuated employees at the Time Warner Center Wednesday morning as police investigated a suspicious package sent to the building.

A former staffer for Hillary Clinton blamed Trump for inciting the “hate and violence” behind the attack.
