Unknown White Powder Sent To Don Trump Jr. and Wife Vanessa; Vanessa Trump Goes to Hospital for Observation After Exposure to the Powder
Update: Coughing and Nauseous

The leftwing media's tone basically justifies violent attacks and terrorism.

Vanessa Trump and two others had to undergo decontamination and remain under observation at a New York City hospital after opening an envelope which contained an unknown white powder. The Secret Service has joined an investigation by New York City police into what appears to be an attack on the daughter-in-law of President Donald Trump and his son Don Jr:

Update: Though the coughing and nausea may indicate this is a legitimate chemical/biological attack, it should also be kept in mind that some people, like me, will basically produce physical symptoms if there is a strong suggestion of them. For some of us, given a sufficient mental or psychological trigger, the body will start mimicking the physical symptoms we expect.

I'm not saying this isn't a real attack; I'm just saying I know that I, personally, will present with some bad symptoms that are almost entirely psychosomatic.

I would imagine that being exposed to a mysterious white powder, designed to terrify you, would be pretty terrifying for anyone, and terror can have powerful effects on the physical body.
