Wonder who will die in a fire as first responders waste time on political stunts?

“2 people taken to the hospital Tuesday after being exposed to the substance. Neither of those people were members of Cruz’s campaign staff, according to the spokeswoman”.

I wonder if they are the culprits.

This is an act of domestic terrorism.

Nah ... it's an Isolated IncidentTM, carried out by a Lone WolfTM with No Connection to TerrorismTM.

Both will be an incitement for war

Agree, it is domestic terrorism and I wouldn’t be surprised if the Left takes it further and further. There need to be prosecutions and hard jail time for this crap.
