A bomb exploded in a trash can at West 23rd Street, in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, on September 17, 2016. The Fox News Channel’s Geraldo Rivera called it “terror vandalism.” “#POTUS arrives this afternoon-Security always tight Now it will be ironclad. My educated guess: Terror Vandalism, USA based punks acting out,” Rivera posted on Twitter.
The term “terror vandalism” was immediately attack on Twitter. People thought that simply “terrorism” was sufficient.

OK guys, Geraldo Rivera has deemed the bombs ‘unsophisticated’ - so clearly it can’t be terrorism, it is TERROR VANDALISM? #asshole

@FoxNews Geraldo terror vandalism? One of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard. 29 people injured would probably think differently #ChelseaNYC

Geraldo Rivera invents new phrase to describe NYC bombing, sends social media into a frenzy
September 18, 2016 | Carmine Sabia
Geraldo Rivera was on the scene of the terrorist bombing in New York City on Sunday when he coined a new phrase to describe the attack that injured 29 people.
The Fox News personality described the bomb that was detonated Saturday night in the Chelsea section of Manhattan correctly as a “rudimentary device,” but used an unfortunate choice of words after that.
“I can’t for the life of me think why they would choose this place as the target. There’s absolutely no strategic value,” he said. “It’s almost like terror vandalism.”
