The View co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar rushed to blame President Donald Trump for the bomb scare at the Time Warner Cable Center in New York City on Wednesday.

From News Busters:
After co-host Whoopi Goldberg read the news, Hostin, a former CNN analyst, weighed in, immediately blaming Trump:

“It's terrible now. I don't know, and you know, I've been texting with my former colleagues at CNN and they're scared. And one colleague -- former colleague said this is what happens when the president calls you the enemy of the people,” she argued.

“That's right,” Behar retorted.

Hostin continued raving against Trump, claiming CNN was now a “target:”

“And I thought my gosh, the tone is coming from the top and now CNN has become the target. Journalists that are simply trying to do their jobs!” she ranted.

Right-leaning co-hosts Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain both urged caution, with Huntsman saying, “We still don't know anything yet about where this is coming from.” But Hostin had already made up her mind that this threat came from a Trump supporter who got their marching orders from Trump and Fox News:

“Well, why did CNN get the bomb?” Hostin asked her conservative co-hosts. Suggesting further that this was a conservative’s fault, she gushed, “Fox News hasn't gotten a bomb!”

Behar agreed. “You don't have to be Sherlock Holmes!” she quipped.
Other Democrats similarly wasted no time exploiting the news to try to boost their party in the midterms:

NBC News's Ben Collins suggested the bomb plot was likely inspired by "talk radio and Fox News" rather than "fringe websites like 4chan and Qanon-adjacent communities on Reddit and Facebook."
