A truck bearing pro-Trump stickers was torched after the owner left the vehicle at a bar parking lot in Vancouver, Wash., overnight.

Johnny MacKay told KOIN News the incident occurred late Monday night, after he opted to take an Uber home after having a few drinks, leaving his Nissan Titan pickup in the Garage Bar and Grille’s parking lot. 

During the night, Randy Sanchagrin, who lives near the bar, told the local station he heard an explosion. He then exited the house and began filming what turned out to be MacKay’s truck being engulfed by flames. 


“By the time I ran back to the street it was so bad there was no getting close to it,” Sanchagrin told the local outlet.

Photos of MacKay’s pickup showed two bumper stickers reading “TRUMP 2020” and “TRUMP: KEEP AMERICA GREAT! 2020.” 

MacKay told the station he thinks his stickers made him a target. 

He said when he arrived at the bar the next morning to pick up his truck, he also found Trump’s name spray-painted on the vehicle.

“All of a sudden I saw the tires were melted, the windows were shattered, and I was just in shock,” MacKay told the station, while also adding that he had just attached the stickers to his bumper over the weekend.

“If I would’ve known somebody would’ve taken politics this far — I saw [the stickers], I thought they were funny and apparently somebody didn’t get the joke,” MacKay said.

The general manager of the bar told The Washington Post she handed all surveillance footage from Monday night over to the local police. 

According to the woman, who asked not to have her name released, the incident occurred sometime between 2 and 3 a.m. 

The manager said the incident “is entirely unusual” for the neighborhood and added that she’s “just glad nobody was hurt.”
