Interesting that the article doesn't mention if Andrew McClinton is a Republican or Democrat. Or were the words 'Vote Trump' not written by him possibly? If he was pro-Trump and did it for attention and to get people to vote for Trump, it seems an odd way to do that. There were plenty of other, legal, ways of advertising for people to vote for Trump. There are too many holes to that story so far.

I have a dream! Of going into general discussion and not seeing Trump in anything!

it's not like he was a Democrat trying to put the blame on the arson to Trump supporters. no way that could happen.

I wasn't saying that. I was just saying that it was interesting that the article didn't mention what political side he was on. If he was pro-Trump he could have done it for attention to get people to vote for Trump. If he's a Democrat he could have done it to make Trump supporters look bad. To be honest the whole thing seems like a frame job to me. Yeah, someone set that fire, but I get the feeling that it was someone else possibly.

doing an arson and saying "vote Trump" doesn't seem the smartest thing a Trump supporter would do.
(sadly, not an impossibility). as for not telling his political inclination, maybe the staff didn't know (or care enough)
of course, the article itself could be fake, haven't checked. it's curious that his last name is [Mc]Clinton though

Have to wait for the trial to get the details. You can only guess at his motive right now if it turns out that he's guilty.

Lol. I didn't even make the connection with his name.
The source is a CBS News affiliate in Mississippi, so it seems legit.

Yeah, I know, but some people did some pretty stupid things during and after the Presidential campaign, so who knows. And yeah, there were some pretty dumb Trump supporters out there. Yeah, that's true, but since it's a politically motivated crime, you'd think that would be a factor in it and in the questioning of the person. Article is from a local news site to the area, I checked it out, so doesn't seem fake, but who knows again if it is or not. Yeah, it is.

Not if he's not guilty or decides to settle things without a trial. Small crimes like this don't always go to court, at least not for more than one or two hearings. Like I said, too many holes and not enough information in the article right now.

Well, he will lose his right to vote if convicted, so problem solved.

Here's a question; If it turned out that the suspect was white, do you think that the story would have more widespread coverage throughout the national media and contain more information?

No. I've seen and read several articles about similar crimes, political and non-political, that have just as sparse information in them and aren't widespread news stories. And even ones that are widespread news stories. Why do you ask, and what does it matter? If it was covered nationally they'd probably just use the exact same article as from the local website.

I'd swap that dream for a nice meal if I were you. Seems more likely to happen since every single whoreson bastard of a syphilis ridden cock is obsessed with Trump.
