The Twitter account of the Missouri Democratic Party reportedly posted, but later deleted, an eyebrow-raising tweet that seemed to express support for the idea of a Trump supporter's home burning down.
The odd post was made in response to a tweet in which an individual had asked, "What would you do if this was your next-door neighbor?" The tweet included a photo of a home covered with pro-Trump material.
Screenshots indicate that the Missouri Democratic Party responded, "The roof, the roof, is on [fire emoji] we don't need no water, let the 'insert your word' burn!" The tweet, which also included the hashtag "#VoteBlue2024," appears to be a reference to lyrics from the song "The Roof Is on Fire."
Republican Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri responded by tweeting, "Here's the Missouri Democrat Party advocating for a Trump supporter's home to burn down. Sick. There's no place for this kind of disgusting, violent rhetoric in Missouri."
"No big deal, just the official account of the Missouri Democrat Party openly calling to burn down the homes of Trump supporters," Donald Trump Jr. tweeted.
"Here is the official account of the Missouri Democratic Party expressing how excited they are about the possibility of a TRUMP supporter’s house burning down. So much for the 'Party of Love and Tolerance,'" someone else tweeted.
"The official account of the Missouri Democratic Party expressing excitement about the possibility of a Trump supporter’s house burning down," Libs of TikTok tweeted.
