Donald Trump slammed CNN Friday morning, and argued that the press is having it both ways by criticizing him whenever it wants, and then blasting him as un-presidential whenever he fires back.
“Funny how lowly rated CNN, and others, can criticize me at will, even blaming me for the current spate of Bombs and ridiculously comparing this to September 11th and the Oklahoma City bombing, yet when I criticize them they go wild and scream, ‘it’s just not Presidential!’” Trump tweeted early Friday morning.

Nine prominent Democrats were targeted by “potentially explosives devices” delivered to homes and offices this week.
NBC’s Pete Williams reports that a package addressed to Senator Cory Booker was flagged at a mail processing center in Florida. Like several of the suspicious packages from the last few days, it bore a false return address for Debbie Wasserman Schultz‘s office in Sunrise, FL.
Also on Friday morning, multiple reports indicate that this package was addressed to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. The package was meant to be sent to CNN, which draws parallels to the incident caused by the package that was meant for former CIA chief John Brennan.
Twitter was disgusted with Trump:
Why NOT go on T.V. live and address the Bomber to Stop and turn themselves in?? BTW your HATE rallies have contributed to the bomber(s) actions. But you know this and it feeds into your sick ego. CNN fact checks and tells the whole story. Obama never had this chaos. Vote DEM

Republicans paint themselves as victim when people point out cruel, incompetent, and/or corrupt things they do: encourage violence, kick 10's of millions off of healthcare, Muslim Travel Ban, children in cages. Real victims are victims, not Republican who caused their suffering. https://t.co/SXYVDYlVkq

Despite a live bomb being sent to CNN two days ago that could've killed people this is what Trump is tweeting this AM. Trump is akin to an ISIS recruiter but instead of radicalizing people by saying the West is the enemy, Trump says the media is the enemy. https://t.co/WWuAqavNoR

Just a normal, middle of the night tweet from the President of the United States of America about how sending bombs to people isn't THAT bad and no one should criticize him. https://t.co/0PpMr1hkcm
