As speculation grows over who is behind the pipe-bomb packages sent to CNN and several high-profile Democrats, #MAGABomber is trending on Twitter.
MAGA, of course, is an abbreviation of Make America Great Again, President Donald Trump’s famous slogan coined during the 2016 presidential campaign, now a hashtag and meme regularly pushed by his supporters to celebrate his policy decisions.
The targets of Wednesday’s domestic terror campaign are prominent critics and political rivals of Trump. His Democratic presidential election rival Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama and former CIA director John Brennan.
Now, some Twitter users have decided that the unknown perpetrator of terror is a Trump supporter—dubbing them the MAGA bomber and blaming the president for “encouraging” terrorism.
Who could the MAGA Bomber be?

Whoever the #MAGABomber terrorist is, Trump is the spiritual mastermind. There is always time for unity, but this is a time for accountability.— Eugene Gu, MD (@eugenegu) October 24, 2018
Outspoken Trump critics and Resistance bros the Krassenstein twins are also in on the action, with Ed Krassenstein pushing the hashtag and his brother Brian pointing a finger at the far-right.
Meanwhile, supporters of Trump and right-wing media personalities have been blasting the hashtag as a “conspiracy theory.”

The fact that #MAGABomber is trending with not a shred of evidence is indicative of the deranged times we live in.— #ThePersistence (@ScottPresler) October 24, 2018
Law enforcement agencies are still working to identify who might be behind the string of attacks and have made no indication as to the perpetrator’s motivation.
