Is politics so important, that now the fact that a potential crime happened is secondary?


Yes. What happened is not as important as taking the opportunity to blame those you disagree with politically.

We don't know who did this, but the OP must because they are already placing blame.

Never let a good crisis go to waste, I guess.


The atmosphere created by the left and the right create a belief among nut cases that there actions are warranted. You cant paint a bulls eye on someone like showing the president beheaded and not expect crazies to act. We are making this behavior seem warranted by turning people in to Nazis or evil.

Is "the Left becoming unhinged?" Oh boy. By your failed logic, the Right has been unhinged since 2013 when some nut from Mississippi sent ricin to Obama.


That isn't failed logic at all.

Its asking if its their turn to have domestic, homegrown terror now. Seems like a reasonable question given the headline here.

Literally in the first three lines of the link you gave....



Donald Trump Jr.’s wife, Vanessa Trump, was hospitalized Monday after receiving a letter containing white powder that was later deemed to be non-hazardous, New York City police told Fox News.


Big nothing of a story.

I disagree . It was meant to scare and send a message.

Yes, we can and should expect that people will not act out in such ways. Regardless, they will.

Look at the Pizzagate nonsense.

The only message sent was the one by the media fanning a flame that wasn't lit to begin with. All it did was expose that something like this could be done and gotten away with... so now we get copycats...

Better to keep it internal, no press, and not give the culprit any airtime.

So I guess the media wants someone to try for real?

Well... if the media is out to get the Trump family as much as the Trump family suggests... then yes that could be accurate. But you'd never get anyone to admit that.

I missed where it was already tested.

Just glad no one was injured.

Why would a distinguished scholar, such as yourself, entertain us with such a primitive and obsolete paradigm like partisanism?

What do you get out of it?

Political views aside, she is a human being. We all have differing views on the things political parties do. It ends right there. I hope whoever has done this gets caught and punished.

Sounds like it was a prank - probably aimed at scaring or sending a message.
Whoever did it needs to be found and punished - to whatever the maximum allowable punishment is under the law.

I disagree. It's totally newsworthy. Either it's a false flag or it was a threat of assassination. In either case it deserves to be investigated.

The bigger picture here is, the idiot in chief can’t even keep his own family safe. Therefore It’s only dumb luck that something worse hasn’t happened to the rest of us yet.

Then again faux news is the source, so it probably isn’t even true.

Yea that sounds right.

He should go post up at the post office and check all the mail.

I am pretty sure that millions could die before any harm would come to the first or second families.

Someone from CNN posting!



Glad to get the "real news"!


Well, better luck next time, eh?

You really lose credibility with childish phrases like that. Do you use those terms in real life with actual people? Or just online when you're anonymous?
