On Saturday, New York was shattered when an explosion ripped the Chelsea area of the city, injuring some two dozen people or more. GOP nominee Donald Trump correctly referred to it as a bombing and was attacked by Hillary Clinton, who also referred to it as a bombing.
“Just before I got off the plane, a bomb went off in New York and nobody knows exactly what’s going on, but, boy we are really in a time,” Trump said at a campaign event in Colorado Springs. “We better get very tough, folks. It’s a terrible thing that’s going on in our world and in our country and we are going to get tough and smart and vigilant. We’ll see what it is.”
Here’s video of that posted to Twitter:

Hillary was also asked about this.
“I’ve been briefed about the bombings in New York and New Jersey,” she said.
She was then asked about Trump calling it a “bomb.”
“I think it’s important to know the facts about any incident like this,” she said.
So it’s okay for Clinton to call a “bomb” a “bomb,” but it’s not okay for Trump to do so…

As memory serves, that’s what was used in Boston.
And a second device was found, Fox reported:

But Trump’s a bigot for mentioning it…
Trump says bomb: "He's being a bigot and fear mongering!"
Hillary says bomb: "She's being cautious."
Seems legit. #ChelseaNYC
