Sanders is motivated by compassion and care. Trump is motivated by anger, hate, revenge and pettiness.

Don't argue with the Left's Thought Police. They know what each politician was thinking, even when he didn't say what they are claiming he did. And they will punish him accordingly. And you're next.

Here's another one who says Trump is right about Baltimore:

Trump can't control or put a filter on his pie hole. As a result, Trump will alienate more and more voters by the 2020 election.

Know what I mean?
Is that the same amount of threads direct at the false allegations at Hillary or amount of birther threads?

Him "fixing" Manhattan must have been the reason that 86% of Manhattan voters pulled the lever for Hillary.

Trump: Bernie Sanders Is Racist for Baltimore Remark
Monday July 29, 2019

President Donald Trump on Monday said that Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., "must now be labeled a racist" for comparing parts of Baltimore to a third-world country in 2015.

"Crazy Bernie Sanders recently equated the City of Baltimore to a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY!" Trump tweeted, referring to a statement Sanders made in 2015, after he visited Baltimore following the riots that occurred after Freddie Gray was killed while in police custody.

"Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you were in a wealthy nation, you would think that you were in a Third World country," the senator said at the time, in remarks that were recently re-aired by Fox News' "Fox & Friends."
I'm sorry--who did Bernie attack? Personally attack? Names? People?

Trump doesn't make objective observations, just in case you didn't notice.

He makes it personal, rude and as disrespectful and insulting as he can.

Also Bernie did not say this in a rage as a response to a relative's subpoena for using private email servers for classified government business.

Default Even more racist comments about Baltimore

Who made these comments?

I certainly am from Baltimore, and I am very proud to be so.

I could not help but think about the fact that there are so many people who need medical treatment. They need treatment. For a lot of people, it is very easy to sit back and look at folks. Well, I live in the middle of it. I live in a drug-infested neighborhood. I know people who have been trying to get treatment for years--for years--and can't get it.

The problem is very serious. It is one, as I said before, I count as a top priority on my list since I live with it. I have known the little girls who I have watched grow up from babies and now selling their bodies for $5 at 14 years old. I see them every day. I know the pain of coming home and seeing my home ransacked, my car broken into because people are in so much pain they don't even know they are in pain.


Who is the author of these comments? It wasn't President Trump. In fact, they say far worse than Trump has ever said.

The author? One Elijah Cummings (D-MD), member of the House of Representatives from Baltimore, MD.

And when did he make it a "top priority"? 20 years ago, in 1999. And now it is even worse than it was then. Despite his claims and promises, he has accomplished nothing since then.

But let Donald Trump point out the same things Cummings himself pointed out 20 years ago, and suddenly Cummings considers the remarks outrageous and "horribly racist".

Didn't the last three Dem mayors of Baltimore resign over corruption charges?

Let me get this straight. Cummings was in the Maryland House of Delegates for 14 years and served as Speaker of the House. He's been in Congress for 22 years. Lived in the Baltimore area his whole life. . Yet, Trump's equally responsible for conditions in Baltimore generally and Cumming's district specifically.


Please say you were struck by an uncontrollable TDS moment and you don't really believe what you wrote.

You obviously don't know the difference between pointing out a situation (Cummings) and racist rhetoric (Trump).
That's ok though the Germans thought the same about the Nazis in Germany in the 1930's.
