Forty minutes after the explosion in Chelsea Saturday night, Donald Trump told a crowd in Colorado that a bomb had gone off in New York and said, “We better get very tough, folks. We better get very, very tough.”
For the next 48 hours, the media denounced Trump for jumping to conclusions about a “bomb” — and especially for the wild suggestion that government policy had had anything to do with it. (How about our policy of naturalizing 858 people from terrorist-producing countries who were still under orders of deportation? Is it deplorable to ask about that policy?)
That night, CNN boasted that it placed “numerous requests” to the Trump campaign, demanding his evidence that it was a bomb.This explosive-filled device with a detonator that blew up in a dumpster — what makes you think it was a bomb?

Hillary referred to the bombing as a “bombing,” then snipped, “I think it’s important to know the facts about any incident like this … I think it’s always wiser to wait until you have information before making conclusions.”
