Suspicious Package Led To A Partial Evacuation Of Trump Tower

What had security all freaked out? 

By Eric Shorey

Like Skeletor sitting atop Snake Mountain, Donald Trump has continued to hold court at Trump Tower in New York City. Yesterday, a suspicious package arrived at the President-elect's golden lair, causing a partial evacuation of the opulent fortress.

New York Police Department spokesman J. Peter Donald explained his logic for the evacuation over Twitter:

Luckily, no one was hurt in the mass exodus from the tower. Turns out the suspicious package was just a bag filled with children's toys.

Trump himself wasn't even on site at the time. According to The Hill, he's spending the holidays in Palm Beach, Florida.

Meanwhile, the security situation at Trump Tower continues to be an issue for New Yorkers. We already know that Melania Trump plans on staying in NYC with Barron while the rest of her family lives in the White House. How officials will go about keeping the building safe without costing Manhattanites millions of dollars is still unclear.
