CNN president tells Trump 'words matter' after suspected mail bomb found

John Kelly has ‘hissy fits’ and is hurting White House morale, Scaramucci says

President Jeff Zucker issued a statement condemning White House officials after an explosive device was sent to the network's New York City headquarters.

Anthony Scaramucci, who served briefly as White House communications director previous year, made headlines Wednesday when he called President Trump "a liar" during a CNN interview. "Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that", Zucker said as the network's NY bureau was evacuated for five hours on Wednesday following the discovery of an explosive device sent there.

Former CIA Director John Brennan, the target of a suspected pipe bomb discovered at CNN's Manhattan office on Wednesday, responded on Twitter that Trump should "stop blaming others".

Asked whether the president "bears any responsibility" for the wave of attacks, given his accusations that the media is "the enemy of the people", Sanders claimed falsely that the president has "condemned violence in all forms... since day one".

U.S. Capitol Police also were investigating a suspicious package addressed to Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., at the Capitol Hill mail screening facility. "America should unite against all political violence", Sanders tweeted in response to Zucker's statement.

Newspaper publishers, editors demand Saudi Arabia provide answers on Khashoggis' death
They said the "hypotheses" proposed so far in the Saudi investigation need to be backed by facts to be considered credible. Khashoggi vanished after entering the consulate to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage.

Near the end of his tenure at the White House, Scaramucci gave a late-night phone interview to The New Yorker, in which he made off-color remarks about fellow members of the Trump team, who he said leaked details of his dinner with the POTUS.

Brennan has been an outspoken critic of Trump, calling the president's performance during a July joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki "nothing short of treasonous". "Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!"

Two hundred mostly retired journalists penned an open letter Thursday directly blaming Mr. Trump for being "a part of a sustained pattern of attack on a free press". "The president is certainly not responsible for sending suspicious packages to someone, no more than [Sen.] Bernie Sanders was responsible for a supporter of his shooting up a Republican baseball field practice past year". "The first thing should have been to condemn the violence", Sanders added.

A Harvard study in 2017 found that most coverage of the Trump administration is negative, but did not also find that most of that coverage was inaccurate.

Even as the White House was fighting back against criticism from the left, Mr. Trump for the moment is taking a more cautious approach in public.
