BREAKING: Robert De Niro Targeted with Mail Bomb – Trump Responds (VIDEO)

Actor Robert De Niro is the latest target in a series of explosive devices sent to Democratic politicians and personalities across the country.

The package was reportedly sent to the building that houses De Niro’s Tribeca Grill restaurant and Tribeca Productions, his film and TV production company. It was addressed to the actor.

Early Thursday morning, building security recognized the package as suspicious and contacted police, who X-rayed the item and confirmed it was the same type of device used in the other bomb scares.

The building, and the restaurant, have been cleared to reopen.

The incident comes at the same time as a similar explosive device was reportedly sent to former Vice President Joe Biden.

As was the case with many of the other packages, it had a return address for the Florida office of Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Police have not speculated as to why Schultz’s address was used on the packages.

The package was placed aboard an NYPD Bomb Squad disposal truck and transported it to the police firing range in the Bronx for disposal.

This video from Spectrum News in New York City shows the device being transported.

As Silence Is Consent previously reported, Robert De Niro has been a vocal, and often obscene, critic of President Trump.

Earlier this year, at the Tony Awards, the actor proclaimed “First, I wanna say, “F–k Trump. It’s no longer, ‘Down with Trump,’ it’s, ‘F–k Trump’!”

Here is video of the incident. Warning: the video is unedited and the language is not safe for work.

The President responded on Twitter by calling De Niro “a very Low IQ individual.”

”I guess he doesn’t realize the economy is the best it’s ever been with employment being at an all time high, and many companies pouring back into our country,” the President tweeted. “Wake up Punchy!”

Earlier this month, the actor appeared at a charity event and took a swipe at newly-appointed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was nominated by President Trump.

This week, explosive devices have been sent to former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, billionaire activist George Soros, Maxine Waters, former Attoreny General Eric Holder, and CNN’s New York Studio.

Thursday morning, the President responded to the bomb scares with a tweet, blaming the media for creating a polarized, angry political atmosphere.
