Oprah Winfrey has a silent response to President Donald Trump's weekend tweet in which he called her "insecure" and slammed a segment she did on "60 Minutes". His narration includes references to the Illuminati and the new world order.

On the morning of Thursday, February 22, in the American city of Middletown, in CT, the man in the vehicle drove into the hospital premises and staged a self-immolation. "I know that you are, you are their protector and I am going to attack one of your headquarters right now - Middlesex Hospital".

Ellam's motive was unclear at first, but Middletown Mayor Dan Drew has stated that he believes it was an isolated incident. Officials say the man had gasoline cans in his auto.

"The bomb squads were there". They ordered nearby residents and pedestrians to take shelter in place, but lifted the mandate shortly after noon.

Municipal, state and federal bomb squads checked the hospital and the suspect's residence, Police Chief William McKenna said. Residents in the area were told to evacuate as a precautionary measure.

According to various reports, Ellam has an extensive criminal history in CT, having been convicted of driving under the influence, criminal mischief and assault.

Middlesex Hospital issued an alert on its website February 23 indicating the ER will remain closed and all nonemergency surgeries scheduled for February 23 will be canceled.

Falcone said that the hospital was thankful for the help it received from local community agencies and other hospitals in the state for the aid they provided. Additional police officers were also dispatched to schools in Middletown as a matter of precaution.

Giuffrida says that there were no threats that they were aware of made to the hospital leading up to the incident.

A number of barriers stand outside Middlesex Hospital as well, but Ellam was able to maneuver around them.

Hospital spokesperson, Amanda Falcone, said in a press release the hospital is still not receiving patients via ambulance, and the hospital's normal emergency department location in Middletown remains closed until further notice.

Yale-New Haven Hospital and Hartford HealthCare have said they are increasing security as a precaution at emergency departments and some other locations. However, their Westbrook and Marlborough facilities remain open.
