Someone with a sick sense of humor mailed a package of “harmless white powder” to Donald Trump Jr’s home in Manhattan today. His wife and mother-in-law were taken to the hospital as a precaution after Vanessa Trump complained of nausea (who wouldn’t) but everyone is thankfully O.K.
“The suspicious letter was sent to Trump Jr.’s apartment in Manhattan this morning, police said. Emergency medical services, firefighters and police were called to the apartment just after 10 a.m. after Vanessa Trump opened the letter, police said.
A source told ABC News the letter had a Boston postmark and was addressed Trump Jr. It contained a note indicating the sender was angry, said the source, who did not elaborate.
Vanessa Trump and two other people at the apartment were decontaminated by firefighters at the scene before being taken to the hospital, according to police.
“The substance was deemed to be nonhazardous and is being transported to a lab in New York City for further analysis,” said NYPD spokesman J. Peter Donald.”
Of course the right is up in arms on Twitter, making baseless accusations against everyone to the left of Sean Hannity.
I think I speak for everyone here at DKos that this is not funny, not cool, and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
