You watch, in three weeks Baltimore will still have rotten vacant houses, filth, rats, and the highest murder rate in the country.
Trump 1
Cummings 0

Last week I said that progressives would soon get over the whole Omar/Trump “go home” debacle and move on to fresh outrage. Two weeks ago it was the Mueller hearing.

Now they’re breathing heavy and sharpening their claws over the Cummings Affair. I give it eh - three more days of collective outrage before y’all find the next thing to melt down over.

So god damn predictable. I don’t know how people can LIVE this way. Your lives are all clicking away, day by day, while you gnash your teeth and exert your energy on this crap.

EVERY Republican president since I can remember has been accused of racism. It's just the playbook. It's sad that blacks buy into and elect the same leaders who do nothing for them. They were talking about this on every show last night and they were interviewing a handful of blacks complaining about the conditions in Baltimore. I would bet one of my kids they voted for these same people. Cummings, mayor....etc.

Iím watching that piece now, with Lawrence Jones interviewing Baltimorians. They are being very honest about the conditions of their city. They love Baltimore and still have pride, but they arenít giving their city or itís leaders a pass. One of them said theyíre grateful for the attention being paid to Baltimore's woes. They arenít offended by the criticism because they know itís true.

It is pretty clear by this and other recent comments that Donald Trump's campaign will very much use a racism strategy to whip up the base. He will do so because it is effective with them.

Literally the definition of insanity. They keep voting for the same guy and expecting something different to happen.

America can finally see how truly racist Cummings is now and the cry of residents of Baltimore.. who have been suffering for years in Rat-town.

I think Trump may have stumbled into a potential master stroke. Democrat policies are in full bloom in many of our worst cities, which have typically been democrat run for years. Even the ones that have been pretty good are headed south(NYC, Seattle) Sounds like a pretty good campaign issue to use against Dems who would like their policies to destroy everyones life, except the elites.
