As a mother of five was rushed to the hospital, some verified Twitter accounts couldn’t contain their joy.
The president’s daughter-in-law, Vanessa Trump, was taken to a hospital after coming into contact with a powdery white substance mailed to her husband, Don. Jr., at their Manhattan apartment on Monday.
The envelope, with a Boston postmark, containing the substance, which turned out to be harmless, included a note address to Don Jr., reading, ““You are an awful person. This is why people hate you. You are getting what you deserve. So shut the fuck up.”
Five people have been killed by anthrax attacks in aftermath of 9/11. Yet many verified lefty Twitter accounts couldn’t resist joking, and even reveled in, the first family’s day of terror.
Huffington Post writer Tara Dublin made tasteless jokes, she later deleted.

The Socialist Party of Great Britain’s verified Twitter account sadistically excused the would-be terror attack with cryptically sympathetic tones.
Disgusting people attract disgusting behavior.

Tired quips about cocaine quickly became hackney on progressive Twitter timelines.
I know people are saying it could be anthrax, but my preferred theory is that Don Jr. asked one of his buddies to mail him cocaine

Have you seen the Trump women?! That white powder is cocaine https://t.co/UTzkBFKIYS

Very big cocaine. The biggest ever. It’s gonna be huge.

Journalist Simon Thompson asked if Vanessa had been “decontaminated” from Don Jr. as the shaken husband attended his wife’s side in a hospital. The backlash also caused Thompson to delete the tweet and change his account settings to private.
Too late dude

Mark Dice, called out the media’s spreading of anti-Trump hysteria being an accessory in the powder scare.
I think CNN holds a huge portion of responsibility for inciting the terrorist who sent the white powder to Donald Trump Jr. and Vanessa Trump's apartment. Their constant stream of fake news, I believe, largely factored into pushing the psycho over the edge.

Decider’s Managing Editor Alex Zalben has an anti-Trump history. In the past he has used his Twitter account to promote sending packages to Don Jr.’s address.

As most of America was gripped in fear of a potential chemical attack, the tasteless behavior of media lefties forced concerned citizens to speak out.
Many on the left, including journalists have shown what vile individuals they really are. Making fun of the possibility that Vanessa Trump was exposed to a lethal substance, is a new low.
How low will they go?

I am relieved that the white powder sent to the wife of Donald Trump Jr., Vanessa Trump was not hazardous.
I also want to make it perfectly clear…
No matter who sent this letter, its NOT funny, it's NOT right, and you should be ashamed of yourself!

If you don't like President Trump that's fine… Beat him in an election…
Families are off limits, this is a whole new level of horrible…
Please pray Vanessa Trump and Donald Trump Jr.'s entire family… https://t.co/TKO6OiT4Rj

Twitter is known for its swiftness in snatching away blue check marks and suspending accounts for light jokes at the expense of celebrities or media personalities, including Roger Stone’s recent permanent suspension, and MILO’s headline-making suspension in the summer of 2016. Conservative journalists and commentators Laura Loomer and Tommy Robinson also recently had their verification removed by Twitter.
Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey has a history of discriminating against right wing users while allowing ISIS accounts and extreme Marxists like antifa to remain untouched.
