More Violence Against Trump Supporters: Truck Torched in Washington State
A video posted to Twitter showed flames spouting from the vehicle — and the charred and spray-painted aftermath
A truck with several stickers on it indicating support for President Donald Trump was set afire and vandalized with spray paint outside a bar in the state of Washington this week.
The owner of the truck believes this was part of an intentional attack against him for his support of the president.
“Washington’s actually more pro-Trump than just across the river in Portland [Oregon], so [this was] very unusual,” Johnny MacKay (shown above, with his truck) told Fox News host Laura Ingraham Thursday night on “The Ingraham Angle.”
He said he had two stickers on his truck, both saying, “Trump 2020.”
One sticker said, “Make liberals cry again,” and the other said, “Keep America Great,” MacKay told Ingraham.
He said his wife was at work one night this week, so he went to the bar to have a few beers and play some pool.
“I was only there for about an hour and a half,” he said, and after a few beers he decided to take an Uber home and leave his car there for the night — intending to retrieve it in the morning.

He told a local station he left his truck under a light in the hopes of discouraging anyone from trying to break in, as Fox News reported.
When he went back in the morning, he found his truck in the parking lot “completely torched … The only thing I can think of is they didn’t like my Trump bumper stickers,” MacKay told “The Ingraham Angle.”
A woman had called 911 to report the incident when the truck was set on fire.
Someone had also spray-painted “F*** you, Trump,” on his truck, though apparently the flames then seared away the expletive.
A video posted to Twitter showed flames spouting from the truck — and the charred aftermath, Fox News noted.
MacKay said he was shocked his truck was destroyed.

The “tires were melted,” he said.
“The windows were shattered,” MacKay told KOIN-TV of Portland this week.
“If you say anything that someone doesn’t like, you are ultimately a target,” he also told that station. “You’re automatically the enemy, and they have to hurt you.”
Threats and intimidation against conservatives and supporters of Trump — and now, apparently, even the destruction of personal property — have occurred from the so-called resistance ever since President Trump won an upset victory in the 2016 election.
And now words of intimidation and other actions even appear to be getting the imprimatur of top Democrats.
The former secretary of state and the former attorney general this week alone both endorsed hostility toward Republicans. Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told CNN this past Tuesday that civility toward Republicans cannot return until Democrats regain power by taking the majority in the House or Senate, or both, in the 2018 election.
And Eric Holder, who was the chief law enforcement officer under President Barack Obama, told supporters of Georgia’s Democratic nominee for governor that they should “kick ’em” when Republicans “go low.”
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), of course, also infamously told liberals and other left-wing supporters of hers to confront Trump Cabinet officials in public wherever they can be found — which “resisters” have been doing in restaurants, parking lots, hallways of buildings and other venues.
