Pro-Trump Filipino arrested in US for sending 14 pipe bombs to Obama, et al.


Cesar Sayoc Jr., arrested Friday by the FBI in connection to a series of mail bombs addressed to prominent Democrats, has a lengthy criminal past, a van covered in stickers of Democrats' faces behind crosshairs, and claims to be a choreographer at a male burlesque review similar to Chippendales.

Sayoc, 56, is also an avid supporter of President Donald Trump, according to his social media activity. His Twitter posts show multiple photos and videos of himself attending a campaign-style rally in support of Trump. SOURCE:

ON FRIDAY, CESAR Sayoc was arrested in connection with the 14 pipe bombs sent to top Democrats, other critics of President Trump, and CNN earlier this week. The 56-year-old Sayoc appears to have been active on social media. A Twitter account prosecutors linked to him praised Trump, threatened top Democrats with death, and shared convoluted ultra-right-wing conspiracies about many of the people to whom he is suspected of sending homemade bombs. Through the same Twitter account, Sayoc also posted photos of the homes of some of those targets along with threatening messages. SOURCE:
Sayoc had worked in recent years as a pizza delivery driver. He claimed in a 2014 deposition that he had been a manager at a strip club called “Stir Crazy,” owner of a dry-cleaning store, a pro wrestler, a Chippendales dancer, a professional soccer player in Milan, and an arena football player in Arizona.

That work history, though, seems to have been inflated. Chippendales denied he was ever affiliated with the company. He also told co-workers that he was an American Indian from the Seminole tribe, that he lived on the reservation, and that he had done work for the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla. But the Seminole Tribe of Florida, Seminole Gaming and Hard Rock International said they could find no evidence to support that. His cousin said Sayoc’s father is Filipino and his mother is Italian.
