Beginning with an explosive device sent to financier and Democratic donor George Soros, multiple additional bomb threats were identified. The later bombs and suspicious packages also targeted Democratic leaders or critics of President Donald Trump.

Law enforcement verified bomb threats against former President Barack Obama, presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, California Representative Maxine Waters, Representative and former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and CNN broadcasting in New York City.

Those watching CNN's live broadcast heard alarms going off and personnel being evacuated from the building.

Given the targets, many point to the GOP and Trump administration as inciting violence among their supporters. CNN is a frequent target for President Trump and members of the GOP referenced Soros as financing any protests against Trump or their policies.

During his Make America Great Again rallies, Trump still leads chants of "lock her up" against private citizen, Hillary Clinton. He also attacks Obama and other Democratic leaders in his rallies and his Twitter feed.

But one of Trump's fervent supporters, conservative pundit Candace Owens, tried to engage in victim blaming on Twitter Wednesday to deflect criticism from Trump. Wednesday afternoon, Owens tweeted:

I’m going to go ahead and state that there is a 0% chance that these 'suspicious packages' were sent out by conservatives. The only thing 'suspicious' about these packages, is their timing. Caravans, fake bomb threats—these leftists are going ALL OUT for midterms.

While Owens is not the only conservative floating conspiracy theories and further targeting the victims with their allegations, people showed no tolerance for her ploy.

People also called out Owens over her comments about the Honduran migrant caravan.

Owens' logic and reasoning skills came into question.

People expressed their anger over Owens' choice of statements and victim blaming.

The White House vowed to conduct a full investigation into the bomb threats.
