We’re at the “mail you anthrax” stage in our political discourse in America.
Donald Trump Jr.’s wife, Vanessa Trump, was taken to the hospital Monday after receiving a letter containing white powder that was later deemed to be non-hazardous, New York City police told Fox News.
President Trump’s daughter-in-law opened the letter addressed to Donald Trump Jr. just after 10 a.m. 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.
A hazmat crew was called to the scene and began decontamination procedures shortly after the incident.
Trump Jr. tweeted of the “scary situation” on Monday afternoon, and blamed the incident on people with “opposing views.”
“Thankful that Vanessa & my children are safe and unharmed after the incredibly scary situation that occurred this morning,” Trump Jr. said. “Truly disgusting that certain individuals choose to express their opposing views with such disturbing behavior.”
When you have gotten to the point where you are mailing people fake anthrax – if this was even fake, it could have just been made wrong – you’ve gone over the edge.
But the whole left is over the edge. They’re celebrating on Twitter.
Sickos wishing that these children would grow up without a mother simply because their preferred candidate lost an election. Disgusting. pic.twitter.com/nmVuToAa2I

Note that this comes after Julian Assange received a similar white powder package.
Donald Trump Jr.'s wife hospitalized after opening envelope with white powder. Oddly, I received one last Tuesday (a terrorism offense in UK law) which was handed to diplomatic police. The stamp? From the US. https://t.co/PTCDlaK8NK

The package to Assange came from the US.
It is very likely that it would be the same person, as Assange and the Trump’s are both viewed as “fascists” (Assange was a hero of the left, now he’s their target, with even low-level Newsweek click-baiters trying to kike him).
If neither of these incidents result in an arrest, then you know the person doing it is somewhat sophisticated. It is difficult to not leave any trace at this point.
