Trump and Clinton react to NC GOP headquarters of firebombing

The fire-bombing of a North Carolina county GOP headquarters was in the news and drew responses from both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on Sunday evening.

Trump tweeted that "animals" representing Hillary Clinton had "firebombed our office in Orange County because we are winning."
It was later learned that Trump had not spoken with or accompanied the miscreants on the firebombing so it not a fact that "animals" did the firebombing as most animals (except fish) fear fire. And it is not true that his statement "we are winning" is accurate as the polls show otherwise.

But polls are often wrong and politicians often lie--on both sides of the aisle.

The party responded to Trump's tweet by tweeting a pledge (sometimes referred to on Twitter as a 'twedge') that they will not be silenced or repressed. That's their way of saying: "Trump Voters Matter." 

A molotov cocktail-style device was thrown into a building where the Orange County GOP headquarters is located in Hillsborough, NC. One state GOP official called it an act of "political terrorism," the Charlotte Observer said.

ISIS has not taken credit for the act.

Local cops and the ATF & E are investigating, but have not confirmed the status or identities about the suspects when Trump tweeted on Twitter. However, some animal droppings were found near the tree line of a nearby forest.

The person, persons or animals who did this had written "Nazi Republicans get out of town or else" on the side of a nearby building. But folks around town aren't worried of a direct confrontation because only cowards do sneaky vandalism and use ad hominem attacks.

Dallas Woodhouse, head of the state Republican Party told the Charlotte Observer: "The office itself is a total loss. The only thing important to us is that nobody was killed, and they very well could have been." 

On Monday, Woodhouse promised that they will be back on the job and will not let this stop them.

Gov. Pat McCrory said in a statement that "Violence has no place in our society--but especially in our elections . . . I will use every resource as governor to assist local authorities in the investigation."

Hillary Clinton also tweeted about the attack, condemning it and the GOP thanked her for the sentiment [but they didn't check her for fire residue].
