    Exclamation Trump Jr. and wife subjected to "anthrax letter" scare

    Vanessa Trump taken to hospital as precaution after white powder sent to her home

    by Tom Winter and Jonathan Dienst

    The suspicious letter that sent President Donald Trump's daughter-in-law to a Manhattan hospital was postmarked from Boston and appeared to contain corn starch, multiple senior law enforcement officials told NBC News.

    The letter was addressed to Vanessa Trump's husband, Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, officials said.

    The Trump family expressed disgust over the Monday incident.

    "No one deserves to be frightened this way," Donald Jr.'s sister Ivanka tweeted.

    Donald Trump Jr. called it "disgusting" in a tweet but said everyone was safe.

    Thankful that Vanessa & my children are safe and unharmed after the incredibly scary situation that occurred this morning. Truly disgusting that certain individuals choose to express their opposing views with such disturbing behavior.

    Vanessa Trump and two other people were taken to New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center strictly as a precaution.

    The NYPD said the white powder in the envelope was deemed to be non-hazardous and was taken to a lab for further analysis. More testing is being done, but officials said it appeared the substance was harmless corn starch.

    "How disturbed must a person be to do what they did to a mother of five children?'' Michael Cohen, President Trump's personal attorney, said in a statement. "This dangerous and reckless act goes beyond political differences."

    The Secret Service said it was investigating and would have no further comment.

    Residents who exited the 54th Street building were shocked by the incident.

    David Schnall, a 52-year-old lawyer who lives in the building, called the incident "horrible," and said he's "upset it happened."

    Schnall also said, "The media is inflaming a lot of hysteria with regard to Trump and this is just a product of that. There is an inflammation of hatred towards the president and anything to do with him, and hopefully this will be a signal for people to stop."

    Lois Winston, a psychologist who works and lives in the building, said she doesn't know any of the affected residents, but she feels "sorry for them" and wishes them well.

    "I think it's terrifying," she said. "I think it's terrifying that anybody would send a package like that, regardless of who it was to, it's terrible. But there are so many terrible things right now that it's not surprising."

    Professional victim class.

    They must have been jealous of all the attention Rand Paul got, but didn't want their own broken ribs. A little corn starch, and voila!

    Apparently it was addressed to DJT Jr, but sent to her mother's house, probably to bypass security.

    The Massachusetts man charged with sending a threatening letter filled with white powder to Donald Trump Jr. that sent his wife to the hospital is a far-left gun control advocate who has supported numerous anti-Trump political causes.
    24-year-old Daniel Frisiello was arrested after a federal investigation traced the unsigned letters to him as a result of Frisiello also ordering a “glitter bomb” for one of the intended recipients using his own name.
    “You are an awful, awful person. I am surprised that your father lets you speak on TV,” Frisiello wrote in the letter addressed to Trump Jr.
    It also said: “You the family idiot. Eric looks smart. This is the reason why people hate you. You are getting what you deserve. So shut the f*** up.”
    A cursory scan of Frisiello’s Facebook page confirms him to be a gun control advocate who has endorsed and supported numerous anti-Trump political causes and campaigns.

    The terrorist would-be assassin turned out to be a left wing extremist, gun control nut from Massachusetts and is also a fan of Adam Schiff.

    Daniel Frisiello was arrested March 1, 2018.
