Occasionally people take their political beliefs a little too far. Lately, we’ve had politicians run out of restaurants because of their blatant racism or the hateful policies they advocate, and now someone has taken extreme measures to let a Donald Trump fanboy know that they don’t like the advertising on his truck. Apparently truck owner Johnny MacKay had a little too much to drink the night before and did the responsible thing and called for an Uber to take him home, leaving his truck in the parking lot. Sometime after the bar closed for the night, someone torched the truck that sported two Trump stickers and wrote some anti-Trump graffiti on it to boot.

A witness who lives across the street from the bar, Randy Sanchagrin, was awakened when the truck exploded. He ran outside and started to film the burning truck.
The next morning he told KOIN News that he initially ran over toward the truck to see if anyone was inside but the fire was too hot to get anywhere close to it. The station also interviewed MacKay and he was understandably upset that someone would take their political views this far. He said that he’s an Uber driver and that now he’ll be unable to work.
‘I literally just put them on this weekend. If I would’ve known somebody would’ve taken politics this far — I saw them, I thought they were funny and apparently somebody didn’t get the joke.’
‘If you say anything that someone doesn’t like you are ultimately a target. You’re automatically the enemy and they have to hurt you.
MacKay also has a message for the person who took away his source of income.
‘They need help. Whether it was from drugs or a mental condition, this person needs to get help. If they blow up at this, who knows.’
