Perhaps Cummings was truthful in his defense of Meadows and Meadows was truthful in his silence.

I was there just a couple of weeks ago. Sure some parts of the city are sketchy looking but there are also some parts that are really quite nice, such as the Inner Harbor and the cobblestoned streets of Fells Point. I used public transportation to get around but I also did a lot of walking, even making my way to the shot tower park where I saw a couple of good samaritans giving out cold bottled water to the homeless during one very hot day. Even I was the recipient of someone's random act of kindness: I got caught in a heavy rain while heading back to my hotel and this guy just handed me an umbrella upon passing me on the street.

There are things I didn't get to do in Baltimore so I definitely will be coming back.

Nah...that ainít it.

Whatís truthful is that if a Republican shakes your hand, youíd do well to count your fingers afterward.

Hopefully someone will inform Cummings that the emblem heíll see on that knife once he washes the blood off is an elephant.

Take all of the personalities out of it. Baltimore is still a dump. It will be interesting to see what Baltimore did with all of the money President Trump gave them.

"Lynne Patton (HUD Regional Director): President Trump Has Given $16 Billion to Baltimore, the Question Is What Are They Doing with the Money?

President Trump has given $16 billion in 2018 alone to Elijah Cummings’ district in federal grants. We have given more money in homeless funds to Baltimore than the last administration. We have given more money 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 benefits residents in the community for once instead of deep pocket crooked politicians?"

Don't hold your breath waiting for the news media to look into it. Corruption is okay when the left does it. But how about the people in Baltimore? Bet they don't know about the $16 billion with a b.

This ainít about Baltimore. Pay attention.

This is about how much you should trust people on the right side of the political spectrum.

Knife in the back. Thatís what this is about. Nevermind Baltimore.

Cummings left the very people that voted for him down. They live in squalor while he rides high on the hog. This is repeated across democratic strong holds. What I can’t figure out is why these people keep voting for them? The food stamps, section 8 and welfare? Dunno but it doesn’t make sense. What is even stranger is scenario is what liberals rage at but they can’t see the cause..

But when Trump called Cummings a racist, guess what Cummings got from Meadows in the way of support? Oh yeah...crickets. Some friend, right?

Totally emblematic of the GOP. This is why I say that theyíre hostile and canít be trusted.

To her credit, Mia Love exhorted Meadows to speak out in support of his friend. But then, Mia Love in no longer in Washington, is she?

Because Cummings is a known false race card player. duh

Should people who worked with Jeff Epstein come to his defense too? lol this is too easy.

Nearly every Congressman lives high on the hog while their constituents struggle. That would include your Senators and Representatives. Your district is full of struggling people teetering on the brink too. Meanwhile, your Congressman makes the same living that Cummings does.

This thread isnít about Baltimore. This is about what happens when a Republican is supposedly your friend. You stand behind them like a chump, but when you need someone at your back, they run and hide.

Itís why Iíve been saying for years that you trust people on the right of the political aisle at your own peril.
