Here’s the difference, Rep. Cummings:
People are struggling to get IN to the U.S.;
They’re trying to get OUT of W. Baltimore
The genius of Donald Trump is that he forces the Left to defend the indefensible. (It helps that Democrats cannot recognize that talent.) The man says what everyone else sees plainly before them but that the discredited “gate keepers” of polite society — the pretty boys on network news, the pampered Hollywood actors, the public education establishment, etc. — deplore.
He is doing what the Left used to call “speaking truth to power.”
Baltimore lost 1.2% of its residents last year — 3% since 2015, reducing its population to what it was a century ago. “The city’s sea of vacant lots and over 16,000 uninhabitable residential properties with weeds growing out of boarded-up windows has proven intractable. Housing areas say about 20,000 other city properties are unoccupied and pose a risk of becoming crumbling shells.” — Source here.
How these elites howl when Donald Trump calls out the hideous double-standard of a government careerist like U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Baltimore.
Bully-ragging a border security official from the comfort of his Washington D.C. committee chair while his home district rots and riots.
Sure, part of it is payback for the congressman going after Trump’s tax returns. But it works the other way around, too. Democrats are going after Trump by hook or crook because he is exposing their bare nekkidness.
Last three Baltimore mayors, all Democrats:
- Sheila Dixon — convicted of embezzling gift cards meant for the poor.
- Stephanie Rawlings-Blake — Stepped down after promoting Baltimore riots.
- Catherine Pugh — Raided by FBI and IRS for taking bribes.
- One of her former police commissioners convicted of tax fraud
So sad that Elijah Cummings has been able to do so little for the people of Baltimore. Statistically, Baltimore ranks last in almost every major category. Cummings has done nothing but milk Baltimore dry, but the public is getting wise to the bad job that he is doing!
Someone please explain to Nancy Pelosi, who was recently called racist by those in her own party, that there is nothing wrong with bringing out the very obvious fact … that Congressman Elijah Cummings has done a very poor job for his district and the City of Baltimore. Just take… a look, the facts speak far louder than words! The Democrats always play the Race Card, when in fact they have done so little for our Nation’s great African American people. Now, lowest unemployment in U.S. history, and only getting better.
Here is the Fox News segment that inspired Trump’s assault:
Fox News host: “Democrats like say they care about how migrants are treated at the border. What about families and people in their own district? Congressman Cummings was elected to represent West Baltimore. But living conditions at the border are better than his own district.”
Maryland resident: “… the conditions in his own district are atrocious and no one I could find said they were afraid of Trump. This is a deadly district where eight days ago five people were shot in less than two hours. … Cummings been in elective office for 33 years. … Baltimore has gotten worse under his watch.”
