No doubt a reaction to Islamophobia in Turkish society.

Twitter video:
Couple guys hanging out in a park & playing guitar, bomb goes off in the distance behind them, the sound from the explosion takes a few seconds to reach them:

Thank goodness that President Trump was elected.
He needs to stay strong on the policy platform of extreme vetting.
There is no need to bring any more Muslims into the U.S.A.

As expected, this terrorism story is seemingly only getting overseas coverage. How predictable.
Mainstream media knows it is Islamic jihadists, so they are nowhere to be found since it skewers their beloved storyline.

No, you can’t go back to Constantinople
Now it’s Istanbul, not Constantinople
Why did Constantinople get the works?
That’s nobody’s business but the Turks’

Only a fool
Goes to Istanbul
It’s wicked, decadent
and sinful

But it’s better than here
‘Cause they sell their beer
Like bananas at fourpence a skinful!
