Many leftist celebrities already know whom to blame for the suspicious packages that were meant for various political figures: President Donald Trump and his supporters.

“Donald Trump tells his cult followers protesters are paid for by Soros. Hillary Clinton should be locked up. John Brennan should lose his clearance. CNN is the enemy of the people. And blames Obama for everything. They’re lives were all threatened. You do the math. VOTE!!!” tweeted “Stand by Me” and “Misery” director Rob Reiner (pictured above center).

George Soros, a major Democrat donor, was reportedly sent an explosive device at his home in Katonah, New York, while former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former CIA Director John Brennan were also targeted with packages.

One of Hollywood’s own, the very outspoken Robert De Niro, was also reportedly targeted with an explosive device.

It was sent to his New York production offices.

“A recap: Yes, the caravan is definitely full of MS-13 and Middle-Eastern terrorists. No, the bombs sent to Clinton, Obama, CNN that are physically in the possession of the Secret Service are not real. I miss facts,” tweeted “Big Sick” actor Kumail Nanjiani.

“Star Trek” actor George Takei also added his voice to the herd: “Call me crazy, but that bomb intended for John Brennan — he only appears now and then on CNN. He’s actually signed as a contributor at MSNBC. Guess this gives an indication of the bomber’s intelligence.”

Actress Alyssa Milano (pictured above on the left) seemed to blame the president’s rhetoric for the packages that have been sent out.

“Words matter,” she said in response to the news.

“John Wick” actor John Leguizamo also blamed Trump’s rhetoric for the attacks.

“The WH [White House] must stop inciting violence and dividing and must start uniting!” he tweeted.

“Sons of Anarchy” actor Ron Perlman attacked both the president and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders with his response.

“This morning bombs were sent to Obama, the Clintons, George Sauros [sic], and CNN. Coincidence? Or a blatant pattern. While the press secretary intones through here crooked mouth how abhorrent this act is. While her boss is between Nationalist Rallies,” he said.

Jim Carrey (pictured above right), who currently stars on the Showtime series “Kidding,” said those who sent out the suspicious packages were “emboldened” by the president.

“Today they tried to murder two presidents as well as public servants and journalists,” the actor tweeted. “Make no mistake, these terrorists were encouraged and emboldened by the hate speech of Donald Trump. If you can’t see the clear menace of this man’s influence by now then you are a part of it.”

The words were accompanied by a painting by Carrey showing the president with what appears to be a bomb in his mouth.

Late-night comedians have also predictably gone after the president in the wake of the attacks.

Both Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers went after Trump for agreeing on Twitter with a condemnation of the attacks by Vice President Mike Pence.

“We condemn the attempted attacks against fmr Pres Obama, the Clintons, @CNN & others. These cowardly actions are despicable & have no place in this Country. Grateful for swift response of @SecretService, @FBI & local law enforcement. Those responsible will be brought to justice,” Pence tweeted.

Trump responded by saying, “I agree wholeheartedly!”

“First of all, we fact-checked that one and it doesn’t work out. You have no whole heart,” said Colbert on his show.

“Second, you’re the president. There’s been an attempted attack on two previous presidents today. This is the one time you can’t think of your own tweet?”

Meyers responded by saying, “Hey, man, you’re the president, you can’t just add your name to somebody else’s statement like your signing a get well soon card for a co-worker. Trump is like a kid who tries to cheat off a classmate but instead of actually copying he just writes, ‘See Mike’s test for answers.’”
