Trump prank leads to alarm over white substance sent to Ted Cruz’s office

Hazardous materials crews were called out to Ted Cruz’s Houston campaign headquarters after a staffer opened a letter containing a white substance.

Donald Trump immediately took responsibility to dissipate alarm and assuage fears. A contrite Trump commented Thursday:

“I admit, it’s just a practical joke that went too far. One of my pages mentioned a common Internet tradition of glorifying pictures of friends wives with your DNA. I decided to honor Mrs. Ted Cruz, since I consider him a friend. Ted can keep it, throw it away, or give it to his wife in hopes of a successful son he can use for future campaign commercials.”
