Is there anything that could be more predictable, after four years of over the top vilification of President Trump?
I can't embed tweets in the new Blogger composer, but if you go to Red State you'll find the CNN video report in an embedded tweet there: Concentrated, Deadly Ricin Sent to White House, Addressed to President Trump.
Apparently some one sent Ricin addressed to Trump at the White House. Those types of packages are handled at an off site. This happened a few days ago. Over the succeeding days the substance in the package was tested enough times to determine that it really was a deadly form of Ricin.
This may be the first, but it surely won't be the last attempt - especially if he is re-elected.ReplyDelete
I'd be surprised if this were the first attempt. In fact, when he finally steps down in 2025 ;-), I'll bet that the Secret Service has had to manage more threats and attempts against his life than any other president.Delete
It's likely that we haven't heard of all of them--mostly in the threat categoy rather than true attempts, IMO. I think we'd have heard about serious attempts, as opposed to nutters trying to barge through lines. OTOH, Ricin is very serious. Not super hard to manufacture, but very dangerous.Delete
One news story said another ricin package had been intercepted just before the mid-terms of '18.Delete
It may have been reported at the time and we've simply forgotten. Happens to me all the time. :-(Delete
Probably buried by the Media collective so the proles wouldn't be distracted from handing Congress to the Dem's because OMB.Delete
My wife says my memory is selective like my hearing.ReplyDelete
I am surprised it’s this just now. The amount of pure hate is truly unprecedented. There is a reason Trump wears a vest.ReplyDelete
Glad to hear that!Delete
Maybe he needs a helmet.
