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?

What a load of crap... I watched that and Cummings did crap... Why do TDS liberals continue to lie and distort what actually happened...

What is even stranger is scenario is what liberals rage at but they canít see the cause..

Just check out a video of this years NAACP convention. The 2020 Candidates just tell their constituents what they want to hear. It was a big "aww there there, it isn't your fault, it's all Trumps fault " .... instead of what it should be.

Very few people here on CD would even consider moving to cities like Baltimore.
No one would ever want to send their kids to their schools.
Whether you like Baltimore or not isn’t the point. Trump’s statement that there are bad areas in that city is not some astounding revelation. What exactly was the point of his statement, just a childish response to Cummings criticism of the border that accomplishes nothing.

Trump isn’t some political pundit.he is president and should act the part.

Elijah shoulda been retired 10-15 years ago. He offers nothing new and brings nothing to the table. The man is full of hate

Cummings has been an abject failure as a Congressman. 20+ years of squalor. He should have been sent on his way decades ago. He's the poster boy for how not to represent your constituents.

My position is only 'on the left' in your opinion. That doesn't in actuality make my position 'on the left''.

I've read your words !!! I've listened !!! Now you listen !!! No Sale !!!!

So what !!! You have your opinion and those who agree with you !!!

I'm not one of them !!! Get diversified !!!

When I'm dealing with people who want something their way and only their way !!! Those who can't accept any other POV !!! Talking to them like a child often works and puts it in a context they can grasp !!!
I notice you do the same thing with Joe and his mom !!! That didn't get us anywhere did it ?
Maybe its best to just admit we are both adults with different opinions !!! Am I getting through now ?

Joe's mother was a slug slinging drugs and sleep with any bum who would give her a fix !!!

Spending your time saving Joe from his mother is where you are needed !!!

I'm not Joe or his mother !!!
I'll make my own mind up and have no problem with anyone that wants to do the same !!! Its the do gooders trying to force their POV on others, wanting to control othersthat is a blight on humanity !!!
Be off with you, Joe needs your help !!! phma is doing fine and living the dream !!!
1. The guy who wrote the link agrees with you though about Trump being a fighter and liking that he hits back harder....but he thinks it is wrong for Trump to 'punch down'. Why do you think that might be ?

2. Two things we agree on......both of us think that wanting to control others and trying to force their POV on others is wrong. I present my POV, and people can either ignore it or not, and that is true of all of CD. We are all in our own homes or wherever and can turn it off at any time. We aren't a captive audience in a graded class.

I previously suggested that you put me on ignore if you don't like my posts, but apparently you didn't do that.

My posts are obviously upsetting you. The only logical reason for that is that, to some extent, you realize that I'm making valid points. If you thought all of my points were invalid, thought all of your own points = valid no matter what anyone else thinks, then you wouldn't care one whit what anyone else (not just me) thinks and you'd have air of calm about you...but you don't. It's the same thing with Trump and how he reacts to some things.

Easy to said than done, looking to government for all the fixes is an addiction like if it was a drug or I think I exagerate this if I said they even worship government like a religion.

Hopefully someone will inform Cummings that the emblem heíll see on that knife once he washes the blood off is an elephant.
You donít care about the fact that Cummings is a sell out con artist?

The Democrats will turn on Cummings now that he has been exposed, and the spotlight is on his corruption. They will cut their losses and distance themselves from him. Watch.

In addition Trump has exposed the Democrats which run ALL larger cities as hypocrites and FAILURES.
