Ingraham: Dems Have 'Convenient Case of Amnesia' in Blaming Trump for Suspicious Packages
Says 'cynical ploy' will not work in midterms.
In her "Angle" commentary Thursday, Laura Ingraham said Democrats have a "convenient case of amnesia" after a series of packages with explosive material were sent to prominent Democrats.
A nationwide manhunt is underway for the serial bomber who sent devices to former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, liberal billionaire George Soros, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and others.
Ingraham said it was "irresponsible and outrageous" that Democratic lawmakers and their mainstream media "brethren" were quick to suggest President Trump provoked the mailings with his heated political rhetoric.
"Where was their outrage and fury when prominent Democrats were either just personally and viciously insulting conservatives or actually using aggressive action toward them?" Ingraham said.
She noted that Waters infamously called on her supporters to confront and harass members of the Trump administration in public, and Hillary Clinton recently said Democrats can't be "civil" with Republicans during Trump's presidency.
She said the anti-Trump rhetoric has been even more intense from Hollywood liberals like Robert De Niro and Kathy Griffin.
"And now in the wake of these bomb mailings, it is amusing -- if not disturbing -- to watch the Pied Pipers of chaos, the fomenters of harassment, try to flip the script," Ingraham said.
She noted that after a Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire on a Republican congressional baseball practice last year -- nearly killing Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) -- many Democrats were indignant at the suggestion that their rhetoric may have played a role.
She said the American people are smart enough to see that Democrats are hoping these bomb mailings will distract voters and help them in the midterm elections.
"This cynical ploy will not work. Most Americans know real evil when they see it. And they know what political opportunism is, and that it can sometimes spring from that very evil."
