BTRTN: Cesar Sayoc... "I am Donald Trump, and I Approve this Message"

Born to Run the Numbers on the question of whether Trump's violent rhetoric is responsible for Sayoc's pipe bombs:

Excerpts:

"No, it was not a massive hoax perpetrated by the left wing. It was exactly what we would have guessed: an angry, underachieving, over-testosteroned fifty-ish white-man-as-victim in a conversion van plastered with worship for the Maga-nificent Donald. The collage of hate include superimposed gun targets over the images of Hillary Clinton, African-American CNN commentator Van Jones, and filmmaker Michael Moore. There was a sticker that said 'Dishonest Media CNN sucks.' But of all the images, slogans, and angry rhetoric visible on that truck, the most revealing is a simple line of type at the bottom of the middle window. There, you see a sticker that reads 'I am Donald Trump and I approve this message...'

"Please push all your pathetic prevarications to the side, Republicans, and have the guts to focus on my one very narrow and very specific question: Is the President of the United States inciting violence against his political opponents, and is he therefore responsible for those pipe bombs? The answer is right there in plain view on the collage of hate that adorns Sayoc’s van. There, you will find the images of prominent Democrats framed in the bullseye of a rifle target. That was the message that Sayoc was taking from Donald Trump. Literally. 'I am Donald Trump and I approve this message...'
