Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca office building was also targeted by the MAGA bomber

Robert DeNiro has never pulled his punches when it comes to talking about Donald Trump. Both men are New Yorkers, and it often feels like DeNiro takes it as a personal affront that the unhinged orange lunatic is from “his city.” DeNiro said, immediately following the 2016 election, that Trump’s victory made him feel “like I did after 9/11.” DeNiro has insulted and slammed Trump multiple times over the past two years, including the moment he was bleeped on stage at the Tony Awards, where he said “f–k Trump.” It was after that moment that Trump targeted DeNiro on Twitter, tweeting:

Well, shock of shocks, you’ll never believe who else the MAGA bomber targeted! That’s right, a similar pipe bomb was sent to the building which houses DeNiro’s famous Tribeca Grill restaurant, and his production offices.

A suspicious package addressed to actor-director Robert De Niro was reported early Thursday at the Manhattan building where his production company is based, and its marking and contents appear similar to pipe bomb packages recently mailed nationwide to top Democrats, two law enforcement sources said. The De Niro and Joe Biden packages bring the number of suspicious packages sent to prominent critics of President Donald Trump this week to nine. The devices showed the presence of a sulfur substance, which could have exploded, a law enforcement official said.

The package addressed to De Niro, found on the seventh floor of 375 Greenwich St. in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood, was reported to police around 4:45 a.m. The building contains Tribeca Enterprises — which includes De Niro’s Tribeca Productions film and television company and organizes the Tribeca Film Festival — and De Niro’s Tribeca Grill restaurant. Police have sent the package to a secure facility in the Bronx, New York Police Department Commissioner James O’Neill said on Twitter.

The MAGA bomber is just reading through Trump’s Twitter feed and targeting everyone Trump himself targets. It really is that simple.

    Seriously, I wouldn’t mess with Bobby

    I am a lifelong NYer too. I really can’t believe our President spews such BS. I’m thinking he has much bigger problems to address? He is delusional and mentally unstable. He behavior is embarrassing and ridiculous. And, I am sure DeNiro would deliver a serious ass-kicking to him if given the chance. I wouldn’t mess with Bobby either!

  3. Citresse says:

    The source is not domestic. Just what I believe at this point in time.
    Hopefully CNN can quickly shed more light.

    • AMiller says:

      I’m curious as to why you think someone from another country would try to assassinate all of Trump’s enemies? Doesn’t history tell us the US has a serious problem with right wing domestic terrorism?

      Or maybe I missed some important fact that has come out?

      • Citresse says:

        I’m not sure which way MSNBC’s Chuck Todd votes but I agree with him: the source may indeed be the Russians.

      Ask yourself who profits most from these bombings / pretend bombings.
      They spread fear among people who criticize Trump.
      They spread fear among the general population especially those who criticize Trump.
      Continue …

    I’m actually scared they will target newspapers like the NYT or the Washington Post. This is horrific.

    • GrrlGotGame says:

      The San Diego paper received one. A friend works at the Washington Post, and I am terrified for him.

  5. Ms Lib says:

    Of course the person sending out these bombs is a citizen who has taken his/her lead from 45. All one has to do is listen to vitriol spewed by the president and know that the MAGA bomber voted for him. I am surprised none of the talk show hosts haven’t been targeted but again, if this individual is following the Trump tweets, he has never mentioned them by name that I remember. But then again I don’t read every tweet.

    • Darla says:

      Just Katy Tur, that I can recall. Amazingly, he has never mentioned Rachel Maddow, or even alluded to her.

      With Tur, IMO, it’s sexual. He gets off on bullying a woman he considers doable.

  6. Sunny says:

    No, he went after Don Lemon who in a way hosts a talk show on CNN – a news talk show

  7. holly hobby says:

    Someone, who most likely has a lot of knowledge about the USPS, posted on Twitter to say that if they find out that the bomber mailed a billed or some other letter when he sent those pkgs, they could nail him/her right away. Apparently the Postal Service has ways of tracking people down.

    I hope they find the culprits.

  8. Anare says:

    Something is weird about this bomb scare deal. I can’t put my finger on it but it feels super staged, by someone, to try to affect the vote. It feels like a game to scare people, to deflect from another story, something is odd.

    • Ann says:

      I get that sense too mostly because none of these bombs have detonated. I know very little about bombs but I know they are volatile, that’s kind of the point… so why have none of them gone off? I am very glad they haven’t injured anyone yet but it’s also weird that that’s the outcome. Are these fake bombs intended to scare/distract people? Or is the MAGA bomber just that stupid and making ineffective bombs?

    Hamilton68 (which tracks Russian disinformation and propaganda) is showing the term “MAGAbomber” as a #1 term being pushed out by their bots and trolls. I think this shows they want us to use this term to fight amongst ourselves more. Troubling to see how they pushed it out in a coordinated effort just a few hours after the bombs were located. Not sure what is happening here. Hope FBI gets to the bottom of it soon.

  10. FF says:

    Look, you don’t need a bomb scare to affect the vote. People are already upset about the bs bomb acting as president.

    Were the nazi rallies and hate crimes staged to affect the vote?

    I hate to break it to you but the recent Supreme court nomination did more to affect the vote; the White House response to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi will affect the vote; separating children from parents at the border, losing track of who belongs with and putting children in cages will affect the vote.

    Bomb scares don’t have to be “staged” quite enough has gone on already.
