    Come on folks, if you don't like the Trump's then vote Donald out. WTF is wrong with people?

    Scary.

    On the lighter side - the first sarcastic thought that popped in my head was "she shouldn't have opened up Jr's drugs"

    ^^ if it weren't for the "scary" I would think this is making fun of serious situation about someone they clearly hate.

    They say Trump has no class, but then act the same when it suits them.

    I don't hate anyone. I dislike people strongly. And the situation is scary. But calling out my self-admitted sarcasm seems a bit ridiculous given what seems to be very acceptable by you and others when it's POTUS

    Oh please. Personal attack noted.

    Well, display some restraint and decorum and not say something like that.

    Also that wasn't a personal attack.

    Saw another source that said the powder "wasn't dangerous". If it wasn't dangerous, then what was it? And why were people taken to the hospital?

    The letter was apparently addressed to Donald Trump Jr.

    It was. And I didn't post until after it was deemed that the powder wasn't harmful.

    Maybe just to be cautious? I would probably freak if I opened that up myself but that's just me. Either way, I'm glad to hear she's okay and think it's sad when people let their politics get the best of them like this. Hope they find and make an example out of this person.

    Probably some mentally ill person mailing flour to get their 15 minutes of fame. And I would bet they were taken to the hospital as a precaution while waiting for tests to come back on the powder.

    Nope, just pointing out the hypocrisy. Also, you'd have to take someone seriously to be offended. It was to be expected.

    "Vanessa Trump was taken to the hospital as a precaution, police said. Two other people who were also exposed to the powder were taken to the hospital. "

    While this is of course horrific, I do find it interesting that Trump supporters are upset in light of the fact that Trump said you have to "take our their families" and asked the 2nd Amendment people to assassinate Clinton. Just a joke, guys, yeah?

    Gotta take precautions until the substance is identified.

    Several years ago I opened an envelope addressed to a well known author and was covered in a white substance. I just brushed it off and didn't think about it. I would have freaked out had this happened now.

    Here's why :

    Three patients from the household were transported to the NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center for further evaluation, said Fire Department spokeswoman Sophia Kim.


    The three also included Vanessa Trump’s mother, though she had not complained of symptoms, the police spokesman said.

    No big deal, was just an anthrax/ricin joke. People win settlements for emotional despair if they're given regular milk instead of soy at starbucks. The family should just laugh it off though because Trumps an *******. :rolleyes:

    I find it hilarious that Trumpers apply standards to others that Trump himself could never meet.

    As if he is the only person who is allowed to act like he does. Get over it y’all, the bar has been lowered into the swamp.

    Testing, preventative measures, and containment. It can take a while to identify substances and pathogens. If it turned out to be a highly transmittable pathogen you would not want the people who came in contact to be freely roaming around.

    Chances are it’s probably nothing sent by some schmuck. I’m just surprised they allow Melania to open her own mail.
