Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling Department of Justice Terrorism Detective Detective: I know there's one inspiration driving all this violence, but what is it? WHAT?! Employee: Boss, look! I analyzed the van owned by that mail bomber! Detective: Whaddaya got? Employee: These stickers on the window are laid out in a rectangle roughly the shape of Afghanistan! Detective: So it could be Al Qaeda! Good work! Keep looking! TRUMP PENCE Employee #2: No leads on the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter's inspiration, boss. Detective: Think! Think! Who promoted fear and hate with regard to an "invasion"? Employee #2: I've got it! The 1978 video game "Space Invaders"! Detective: Video games! Of course! Find out if the designer of the game promoted any anti-Semetic Soros conspiracy theories! Detective: Anything on that guy in jail for death threats to Rep. Tlaib? Employee #3: Let's of the things he wrote: "don't tell our president, Donald Trump, what to say." Employee #4: Hold on! If you take the first letter of every word, D...T...O...P...Damn! Nothing! Detective: Another dead end! How about the El Paso shooter? Did he leave any clues as to who could have inspired him? Employee: Well, there's this photo of guns that he posted. Maybe we can find some pattern in the way they are arranged! TRUMP Employee: Nah, they appear to be randomly strewn across the floor! Detective: What is it? What is the inspiration for this violence?! NEXT WEEK: The search continues for the one factor that TRUMPS all the others!
