Donald Trump, Jr.’s wife Vanessa was quickly taken to a New York City hospital earlier Monday after she opened a “suspicious envelope” filled with a mysterious white powder; sparking a massive security protocol at the family’s midtown Manhattan home.
According to the New York Post, Vanessa opened the envelope -addressed to her husband Donald Trump, Jr.- around 10am at their residence on East 54th Street.
Mrs. Trump was rushed to New York-Presbyterian Cornell Medical Center out of an abundance of caution, but further testing showed the powder was off-the-shelf cornstarch.
“The NYPD’s elite Emergency Services Unit, a hazmat team, the department’s Intelligence Bureau and the Secret Service, the Department of Environmental Protection and the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force all responded to the scene,” writes the Post.
The incident was eerily similar to the “anthrax letters” that rocked the Washington, DC area following the Sept. 11th terror attacks; killing five people and infecting 17 others with the deadly bioweapon.

OUCH: Donald Trump Jr. DESTROYS Hillary Clinton AND CNN in One Sentence
Donald Trump Jr. roasted doomed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and CNN on social media Monday, blasting the former Secretary of State for “giving advice” on how to win elections following her disastrous 2016 defeat.
The President’s eldest son called-out Clinton after she claimed Doug Jones surprise Alabama victory should be a “wake-up call” to Republicans; saying the special election stunner is a roadmap for 2018 and beyond.
“For me, this was a very important turning point in basically holding President Trump and his most vitriolic, destructive advisers, led by Steve Bannon, accountable,” Clinton told supporters during an event promoting her recent memoir.
The former First Lady then attacked President Trump for his diet, citing a recent article that baselessly claimed Trump consumes upwards of a dozen “Diet Cokes” per day.
“Apparently he drinks a dozen of them a day,” Clinton added. “I don’t know what that does to your brain.”
Donald Trump Jr. was quick to point out the hypocrisy of Clinton’s “advice” on social media over the weekend, sarcastically writing, “Hillary giving advice on winning. #ThingsITrustMoreThanCNN.”

President Trump weighed-in on the admission Monday, saying he “felt badly” that the FBI had “ruined” Flynn’s life but did nothing to doomed Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton after she repeatedly lied to the bureau.
