The Media-Democratic Complex savaged President Trump for stating a simple, irrefutable fact: Rep. Elijah Cummings’ (D-Maryland) Baltimore is a rat-infested, crime-ridden city that Democrats have run into the ground, one in which no reasonable human being would want to live.
The same Media-Democratic Complex was entirely untroubled by Bernie Sanders comparing much of Baltimore to a “Third World country” back in 2015. It was similarly sanguine when Elijah Cummings himself referred to his hometown as a “DRUG INFESTED” place where people are “walking around like zombies.” CNN and MSNBC have employed the term “racist” over 1,100 times in characterizing Trump’s tweet. As far as I am aware, they have yet to describe either Bernie’s or Rep. Cummings’ words in a negative fashion…even once.
This is proof positive that any words the president could string together and tweet out would be met with derision and vitriol, whether that tweet was “I like ice cream,” “parts of America are beautiful,” or “I believe the Earth is round, not flat.”
It would put today’s Democrats in a tough spot if he tweeted: “Socialism is the answer.”
Many Baltimore residents agree with Trump’s assessment of the city, which sports the highest per-capita murder rate in America. Many have flooded Twitter with their own comments. And videos. Speaking of which, FOX45 reporter Maxine Steicher travelled to Baltimore’s Sandtown-Winchester neighborhood after Trump’s Tweet, to report on conditions in the neighborhood. The area is part of Rep. Cummings’ 7th Congressional District. Improbably, a rat was seen scampering across the background of her live shot, proving that God has a sense of justice. And humor.
