I wonder what the media reaction would be to someone sending a threatening letter to one of Barack Obama’s children back in 2008, when he was first running for president? I’m not saying it definitely didn’t happen. But to my knowledge, nothing like that ever occurred. The reason I say that is because I’m pretty sure it would have been blown up 24/7 by the national media. I wonder if they’re going to do the same for Donald Trump, now that his family has been threatened over his presidential aspirations?

From 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, was opened by his wife.

A source close to the investigation said the letter had a Massachusetts postmark and warned, in effect, that if Donald Trump doesn’t withdraw from the race for the Republican presidential nomination, harm would come to Donald Trump’s children.

ABC said the envelope contained “suspicious white powder,” although the word is that it test results have shown it was not harmful. And yes, I’m quite aware that these are major media organizations that I’m citing, but two reports in the middle of the night don’t exactly count as the media blowing something up. What I will be looking for is the reaction on the morning shows tomorrow, as well as cable news. Perhaps I’m wrong and they will give this the attention it deserves. In fact, I really hope I am wrong. People running for office shouldn’t have their families threatened, no matter what their political positions are. I would think that most reasonable people could agree to that, even if they hated a certain candidate.

  1. and trump’s power grows, who ever sent the letters are found then found later in guantanamo or some similar american blacksite

  2. what a weird election cycle
    I swear I’ve never seen something like it, politics always get heated but the stuff going trump’s way has been something else and I’m talking about stuff like this or the riots but also about the way the media has been handling it

  3. Terrorism, I’ll bet this is the start of the “Democracy Spring”, if this DOES trace back to Soros, it’ll secure Trump the nomination.

  4. It’s like the media is pushing extremely hard for a riot. Trump said might be riots and the media CNN has been talking about every single aspect of the riots like it’s inevitable for 2 days straight and still yapping about it. Just like Chicago, they took the worst of it and played it on a loop for days and still do. Let’s face it the only thing those riot protesters were missing were the signs saying “DEATH to AMERICA” and the guy with the Burning FLAG on a stick

  5. “it’s not harassment if we’re the good guys”

    and these are the people who profess their nuanced worldviews, btw

  6. In 2008 a couple southern boys got some guns together and planned a killing spree of a specific symbolic number of black people culminating in a blaze of glory killing Obama on the campaign. Someone tipped the Secret Service and they were immediately arrested. It got an moderate amount of attention for only a couple weeks.

  7. More evidence that Donald Trump is TOO FUCKING STUPID to be President:

    When asked on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” who he consults on foreign policy matters, Trump said:
    “I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things,”

    Glossing over the fact that Trump apparently talks to himself, his foreign policy “experience” comes from “saying a lot of things”. Seriously. No, really.

    And while we’re on the subject of Trump’s “very good” brain, was it the same brain that made him say this about his own daughter:
    “I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
    Ew….just…..ew.

    1. Yep, and retards like you make death threats to his kids. Really makes your side seem sane and logical, I hope you are the first to commit suicide when he wins, just in case your idiocy is contagious.

      1. The only person who’s a threat to Ivanka Trump is her creepy old man (see above quote).
        Gosh, what a shame that a candidate who has built his entire campaign on anger, resentment and bile should find it turned back on him.
        You reap what you sow, Trumptard.

        1. I am just sowing comments for your stupid ass to lash out at, because I find children throwing temper tantrums in a fit of impotent rage to be hilarious. Please, come back with more so when I’m bored later I have something to laugh at.

          1. “because I find children throwing temper tantrums in a fit of impotent rage to be hilarious.”
            And yet, when Trump does it, you say he “tells it like it is”. Tweeting insults at everyone who criticizes him, want to sue people who say mean things about him. Calling for protesters to be beaten. I’ll bet you don’t see any “temper tantrums” there, right?

  8. Ivanka Trump as beautiful and sexy as she appears to be comes across as an arrogant spoiled rich brat who seems to be daddy’s little teachers pet because shes claims to be an influential adviser to her father even though she’s independent rather than Republican and claims that she’ll continue to be independent in the November elections. Id say vote for saint Joachim and Anne and serve only them. LOL

I still think shes very sexy and beautiful as well as smart. Id say vote for saint Joachim and Anne and serve only them. LOL. As for Donald he says some outrageous biased things that probably get under the skin of the thin skinned. Personally i think these extortioners threatening harm to Trumps kids are acting like creepy idiots and weirdos. Don’t confuse death threats with righteous indignation. Death threats are not a civilized or assertive way to resolve a dissention. In (1 Corinthians 6:10) the Bible rebukes extortioners and says that extortioners, shall not inherit the kingdom of God. So threatening and extorting to hurt people is ungodly and barbaric even if Donald Trump appears to be inappropriately biased. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/897f2a68b54362ff16660592151108ea02fa41cf11f06e2a778c5016beaea3f6.jpg
