President Donald Trump sharply criticized Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and the state of the city of Baltimore. It’s in total decay. It’s not safe. The deputy police commissioner was recently mugged. There are rats everywhere. And it’s a corrupt city; just ask why Catherine Pugh had to step down as mayor. Folks, a documentary called Rat City was released two years ago that detailed this issue. This isn’t racism. It’s a fact. It’s a Democrat-run city that’s straight trash. No one cared about it, but now, due to the liberal media’s ‘orange man…bad’ protocol, everyone is defending this gem of the Chesapeake. It’s pathetic. It’s transparent. It’s typical Trump Derangement Syndrome.
It’s amazing how a few angry tweets stemming from Fox News segments can set the news agenda for a weekend & into a new week as ppl hyperbolically attack & gaslightingly defend a city that most (not all) of them didn’t care about before & won’t again once the news cycle moves on.— Jerry Dunleavy (@JerryDunleavy) July 29, 2019
Oh, and it’s even more delicious is that Trump was pretty much right. Sen. Bernie Sanders and former President Barack Obama noted Baltimore’s decaying state. Are they racists? The Left once again lost. They got served a piping hot cup of ‘shut your face’ and when liberals lose, America wins. And now Lynne Patton, a regional Housing and Urban Development administrator, just torpedoed what’s left of the Democrats’ faux outrage over Trump’s tweets at Cummings and Baltimore (via NY Daily News):
"President Trump has given $16 billion in 2018 alone to Elijah Cummings' district in federal grants."— Trump War Room (@TrumpWarRoom) July 30, 2019

“President Trump has given $16 billion in 2018 alone to Elijah Cummings’ district in federal grants,” [Lynne] Patton told Fox News Monday. “We have given more money in homeless funds to Baltimore in the last administration. We have given more in community development grants than the last administration to Baltimore. My question to you guys is this: What are you actually doing with the money so that it actually benefits residents in the community for once instead of deep-pocketed, crooked politicians.”
Patton jumped into a simmering feud that has Trump pitted against Cummings, the Rev. Al Sharpton, and Michael Steele, a Republican, who is Maryland’s former lieutenant governor, and the former National Republican Party chairman.
In a series of weekend tweets, Trump claimed Cummings is to blame for Baltimore being a rat-filled and charmless city.
Democrats have to be going blind over how many times they’ve been trashed and whipped by this White House. Like the eyes are starting to become swollen shut for all the hits to the head.
