The anti-Trump hysteria sweeping this nation has just crossed a major line. Authorities are investigating a direct threat to Donald Trump’s children and their families — a warning that if the GOP frontrunner doesn’t withdraw from the race, harm will come to his kids.
Via CBS News:
The Secret Service, FBI and New York Police Department are investigating what sources tell CBS News is a threatening piece of mail sent to Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump.
The mail, sent to Eric Trump at his posh Manhattan residence at 100 Central Park South, also known as Trump Parc East, was opened by his wife Thursday.
A source close to the investigation said the letter had a Massachusetts postmark and warned that if Donald Trump doesn’t withdraw from the race for the Republican presidential nomination — paraphrasing — harm will come to the kids.
A source familiar with the matter said the envelope contained suspicious white powder that’s been sent to a lab for testing. The source said a preliminary field test indicated the substance didn’t appear to be hazardous.
This would be sick and outrageous enough if the threat had been aimed directly at the candidate himself. But his kids and their families?
Talk about a new low. Let’s watch to see how the liberal media characterizes this. Of course, if something like this had been aimed at Obama’s family, there would be huge outcries of racism. But is this type of behavior “acceptable” in the minds of liberals it it’s directed at a white man and his “privileged” family — who dares to say things they don’t agree with?
