    Donald Trump's 'animals' tweet stuns many

    Donald Trump's 'animals' tweet stuns many

    Technically Incorrect: In the wake of arsonists attacking a GOP office in North Carolina, the Republican nominee immediately claims that it's the work of beasts supporting Hillary Clinton.

    A touch incendiary?

    Never let it be said that Donald Trump is mild with his emotions.

    His Twitter emotions, that is.

    After a firebombing attack on the Republican Party headquarters (and graffiti accusing the Republicans of being Nazis being sprayed nearby) in Hillsborough, North Carolina, reactions differed.

    As the Charlotte Observer reports, the state governor called it "an attack on our democracy."

    Hillary Clinton's Twitter account offered: "The attack on the Orange County HQ@NCGOP office is horrific and unacceptable. Very grateful that everyone is safe."

    Republican nominee Trump took a slightly different approach.

    "Animals representing Hillary Clinton and Dems in North Carolina just firebombed our office in Orange County because we are winning @NCGOP," he tweeted.

    Neither the Trump campaign nor the local Hillsborough Police Department immediately responded to a request for comment.

    However, on its Facebook page, the police said that the incident is still under investigation.

    There's currently no more evidence that Clinton's supporters were behind it than there is that Trump is winning. Even he himself earlier on Sunday tweeted that he was down four points in a poll.

    The most jaundiced might even mutter that, if you're actually winning, giving such an incendiary response would be a touch counter-productive. Deranged, even. What would be the purpose?

    Many are saying that Trump's purpose from now until Election Day is to incite the maximum amount of mayhem.

    Reactions to his tweet were considerable and mostly extreme. While some praised him for his superior investigative skills, others were more skeptical.

    Famed James Beard award-winning chef Jose Andres -- who's currently in a legal dispute with Trump after backing out of a restaurant project in one of his hotels -- tweeted: "you are a looser [sic] for claiming something that is untrue!...who are you? Look yourself at the mirror tonight!"

    Others saw a twisted conspiracy. TV presenter Ralph Midnight, for example, mused: "maybe it was the Russians trying to make democrats look bad?"

    The North Carolina GOP replied to the Clinton tweet: "Thank you for your thoughts & prayers, Sec. @HillaryClinton."

    It demurred on replying to Trump's tweet. The nominee later emitted a milder effort: "ALL SAFE IN ORANGE COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA. With you all the way, will never forget. Now we have to win. Proud of you all!@NCGOP."

    To this, the NCGOP tweeted: "Thank you Mr@realDonaldTrump. We will not be silenced nor suppressed by this evil act. We will pray for those who seek to harm us."

    Some Democrats even started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for repairs to the GOP HQ.

    Still, over the last months and even more, it's becoming harder to distinguish between your average Twitter rager and your average presidential candidate.

    To refer to humans as "animals" -- and to immediately assert you know what has happened when the authorities don't -- offers a view of the future with which not everyone might be comfortable.

    One can't help wondering whether Trump's assertion that unnamed creatures beholden to Clinton are behind this attack feeds into a larger picture he's been painting.

    That picture involves elections being rigged and conspiracies being as commonplace as invective on Twitter.

    Everyone's against him. Twitter is one of the only places where he can reveal the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

    It's a beastly world, after all.

    Yes, they are animals. They're actually worse than animals. This is how this Trump Supporter would consider anyone bombing any building in our country, let alone a political campaign office in my state, not to mention one that belongs to my GOP Party doing work for my candidates like Donald Trump.

    Yes, they are Hillary's Shrills. It wasn't Mormons for that candidate from Utah, it wasn't Libertarians for Gary Johnson or the Green Party for Jill Stein voters, although they get pretty wild.

    It was destructive Hillary Supporters. And yes, they are animals, they are of The Beast, they are the people supporting the destruction of our nation.

    Trump is an honest man with normal emotions. That is what we want in a President. We want a normal human being with the courage, skills, and will to fix our country.

    And Chris, since your article took issue with that, one can only presume based on the evidence of your article, that you're a HillaBeast yourself.

    They pick his every word apart and turn it into something else. My guess this is supposed to be the defense for Hellery's deplorable comment. Not even close.

    Et tu CNET and Chris Matyszczyk?

    Trump has tendency to say what people are thinking and the politically correct slap downs form the MSM and wanna be MSM only show the bias. As to who did it, those with the most to gain are the opponents - Democrats. IMO

    This explains it. Maybe Donald has never hired him, but I will be Hillary supporters hav. JMO

    The Incorrect Position

    Chris Matyszczyk is a writer, speaker and adviser to corporations and individuals.

    His last name is pronounced Maty-sh-ch-yk. But certain Anglo-Saxons decided this was too far much trouble, so he’s often referred to professionally as Chris Majestic. But not always.

    He currently advises corporations and individuals on content creation, advertising and marketing through his company HOWARD RAUCOUS LLC. His clients have comprised some of the world’s largest corporations, as well as some of the more quirky small brands — and even some very strange people.

    There’s also the blogging thing. This came out of nowhere.

    While advising CNET, Chris created the CNET News blog TECHNICALLY INCORRECT. This blog now enjoys a worldwide following far beyond anyone’s sane expectations.

    Somehow, Mediapost decided that he’s the Most Influential Person on Madison Avenue.

    He’s been named the Most Influential Content Marketer in the US.

    He also wrote one of the 20 Most Read Posts on the Web Since 2009. (It was one about engineers and idiots, naturally.)

    Recently, he’s also created another column on It’s called Absurdly Driven.

    In the past, he’s offered his thoughts to CBS about cultural artifacts such as Dancing With The Stars, American Idol and the World Cup.

    He’s a man of many distractions. He’s appeared on NPR, the BBC, WABC NY and numerous other radio stations. He talks about, well, all kinds of things related to the news, technology, sports and social media.

    His speaking engagements tend to stir. Gawker described him as “hilarious.” This was an unusual kindness.

    For a while, he was a co-host on the Sports Overnight America show on the internationally syndicated Sports Byline USA.
    Chris spent much of his advertising career in Europe, Asia, and the US. His last corporate stop was as EVP Executive Creative Director for the Publicis Groupe in New York.

    There, his work was occasionally liked by some people — especially a campaign for Brookstone’s Uzap that brought a nod from the Cannes jury.

    Mixing outdoor, promotional techniques and guerilla <acronym title="Google Page Ranking">PR</acronym> (if you can call Skinny Santas ‘guerillas’) the Uzap campaign culminated in Katie Couric extolling its virtues live on air and then gifting a Uzap to NBC’s David Gregory. The budget was roughly a week of Katie’s salary.

    Before New York, he was Senior Vice President, Executive Creative Director of Bcom3’s Highway One in San Francisco where ,amongst many other things, he launched ebooks for Microsoft, a campaign that Si Newhouse described as “brilliant” and that exceeded the client’s targets by 400%.

    He was also responsible for one of the first ever viral campaigns when he and his team bought space on building sites and holes in the road to claim that this was, in fact, damage caused by live dinosaurs on their way to the Natural History Museum.

    His campaign against Domestic Violence in Poland (which caused national and international debate) was covered by news media all around the world. The work ended up being featured in a front page story in the New York Times.

    Currently, he tries to balance the different strands of his career and is sometimes asked to speak, as well as write, but rarely both at the same time.

    He was most flattered, though, by a tweet from Dan Dowdle that suggested he was “America’s funniest columnist post-Dave Barry.”
    Who is Dan Dowdle? Chris has no idea, but he seems like a very nice man.

    Please feel free to contact Chris here or at 415 233 2001. Especially if you want to give him work, money, or money for work.
    In case you didn’t realize, there is a hefty chunk of irony and sarcasm to his writing.
