This poor family and what they’ve had to endure this past year! No matter what this turns out to be, this family has endured a tremendous amount of hate from the left. The media and politicians aren’t helping temper the hateful rhetoric.
It’s being reported by Fox News that the letter with the white substance was mailed from Boston.
Leftists on twitter wasted no time posting disgusting suggestions that it could be drugs and hoped for it to be anthrax.
Donald Trump Jr. receives his regular cocaine delivery, his wife opens the package and they freak out. What am I missing here?

Donald Trump Jr.’s wife, Vanessa, was hospitalized Monday after receiving a letter containing white powder that was later deemed to be non-hazardous:
“The substance is being transported to a lab in New York City for further analysis,” NYPD spokesman Peter Donald said.
She opened the letter addressed to her husband this morning at the couple’s Manhattan apartment. It’s unclear what the “white powder” was, but authorities tested the substance and found it to be “non-hazardous.”
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.
Fox News reports:
A hazmat crew was called to the scene and began decontamination procedures shortly after the incident.
Police and Secret Service are investigating the incident.
The U.S. Secret Service said in a statement: “The Secret Service and our law enforcement partners in New York City are investigating a suspicious package addressed to one of our protectees received today in New York, New York. This is an active investigation and we cannot comment any further.”
Law enforcement and Secret Service swarmed the entryway to the Trump apartment building on 54th in Manhattan.
Trump Jr. ditched his Secret Service detail for a period of time in September, reportedly because he wanted more privacy. But his detail was reactivated about a week later.
