(Newser) – The school attended by the first daughters was evacuated today after someone phoned in a threat, the Washingtonian reports. Sidwell Friends School has already given the all-clear for students to return to campus, after an investigation found students were not at risk. No word on whether the threat was related to Malia or Sasha Obama, but current and former students say threats are not uncommon at Sidwell Friends.

2 attacks in 2 weeks. These are happening because the the GOP is promoting hatred of our wonderful president. They are pandering to racist fears, of a black man. They should be voted out of office and sent home. They are spending the racist blight all over our country. Hang your heads in shame. GOPiggers go home stay the hell out of government.

They threatened a whole school with a phone? How do you do that? Throw your phone at someone, then pick it up and throw at the next guy, and so on, and so on...?

The threat was made because the perps were upset about a anti-islam video!
