Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, February 12, 2018

Donald Trump Jr.'s wife was taken to a hospital in New York today after opening a package at her home that contained an unknown white powder, police said. Vanessa Trump was being examined at New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center as a precaution, according to cops. ... "The substance was deemed to be non-hazardous and is being transported to a lab in New York City for further analysis," said NYPD spokesman J. Peter Donald.

Scary. I hope they are okay.

A return to less inflammatory rhetoric is important.

I thought Trump's family supported the White Powder Movement?

False Flag

Already reported it was nothing. Even though it was fake it is genuinely messed up.

Personally I am with Bubba and thinking it's LIKELY a False Flag but either way someone should be going to jail for this. But it is some seriously perfect timing if it isn't. I wouldn't put anything by the family or people that hate them.

You attribute this particular incident to inflammatory rhetoric by the "DR Left"?

Does RCade know how powerful his site is?

Whoever sent that, it's pretty cowardly to pick on a man's wife. I hope she's OK. At the same time I hope her husband ends up in prison.

Just think, this could all have been avoided if the trumps weren't a band of idiots.

Probably not, as it cuts both ways.

And yes, Hans, RCade is well aware of the Retort's omnipotence.

After being exposed to baking ingredients, Jr.'s wifey was rushed to hospital. A Molly Maid hazmat unit is at their home ensuring a safe removal of all peasant powder.

Trump called the hospital and remarked, "She knew what she signed up for"

Completely outrageous. Hope they catch the guilty party and put them in jail a long, long time!

I'd be checking the finger prints on the envelope/package odds are likely they have Bill Hicks aka Alex Jones fat little fingerprints all over it. False flag!

And yet:

"I moved on her like a bitch and I failed, I'll admit it," Trump can be heard saying in the video. "I did try and fXXk her. She was married."...Trump's brag.

In the days following 9/11 I was working in a print shop. We had some government contracts. Just prior to 9/11 we had a rush order for some letterhead, envelopes, and other printed material for the Diplomatic Security Service. Because it was a hot rush order we used quick dry powder. The order was completed and 2 pallets of printed material headed to D.C. Then 9/11 and the anthrax letters happened. We were mortified. We had 2 pallets of paper coated with white powder en route to the DSS!

Nothing ever came of it but for a while we were expecting Helicopters and commandoes.

Libs: let's take away guns.

Also libs: let's create so much hatred in the news that psychologically unstable people will want to hurt Trump, Trumps family , and trump supporters

Lib media: we're running out of bad things to say about trump so let's point out his scar on his head, how he wore a different color than Melania at the SOTU, and talk about how he likes to watch multiple TVs.

Outcome: racial tension at its highest, political parties polarized

1) Donald Trump grifts from high office to make a personal profit.

2) Trump is letting us be walked over by Russia in the 2018 elections.

So, in sum, bugger off.

The best thing that could happen would be the perpetrator being caught and given a long prison sentence. Making a terrorist threat will land you in jail quickly, and this is an act of terrorism. Just as making a phony bomb will get you into prison as quickly as making a real one. Problem is it is all too easy to produce the real deal. All that is needed is a good microscope, some vector and some eggs. Find some highly motivated individual who dowsn't care that they might infect themselves while producing this crap and this could be done this in your kitchen. Easier still are toxins like risen, which are just as dangerous. Maybe it is time we agreed that terrorism is not a reasonable part of public discourse. People who do this need to be punished severely.

I don't understand what color has to do with it.

It could be anybody for any number of reasons.

Whoever . . . white, black, lib, repub, male, female, activist, vet, patriot, rich, poor, citizen, immigrant, and everybody inbetween ~ will be sent up the river for an act of domestic terrorism if they get caught. In fact, it could even be Trump himself in an effort to back up his persecution theory.

Trump has angered just about every sect of the population you can think of. Something like this was entirely predictable.
