My people? You like to put people in little boxes of identity, don't you? You can't help yourself.

It's the same with the four Democratic women; his underlying message is all minorities come from s---hole countries. And why are all minority countries and neighborhoods bad? Because, in Trump's world view, people of color are inferior and aren't capable of creating clean, upper-scale environments. Trump's philosophy is racist to the core.

2. Congressmen are not responsible for local pest control. So why does Trump hang that on Cummings? Because he's black from a black district. There is no other explanation.


Trump is running for reelection on a racist platform. He's not hiding it. His supporters should just accept it.
What exactly are congressmen responsible for? I would say quality of life in their OWN DISTRICTS is the top item !!!!

This might blow the mind of SJWs and the PC Police, but FACTS are not.......wait for it.......RACIST!
PBS even did a documentary.

'Rat Film' documentary about Baltimore's rodent fight to air on PBS

Is calling parts of Appalachia a dump "racist" as well? The Blue Ridge Mountains are beautiful, but many parts of Appalachia are dumps- trust me- we hike there all the time. The North Carolina area can actually be pretty wealthy, but far eastern TN, far western VA and WV can be pretty dumpy. Racist?

MANY of these congressmen go on the attack and are so focuses on partisan political issues, that they neglect their own districts and what can be done for them.

Instead of wanting open borders and freebies for illegals, why don't Cummings and AOC focus on helping their districts, which obviously need a lot of help. Are they neglecting their duties as Congressmen?



Donald Trump said the same thing about Atlanta, when John Lewis said "Donald Trump isn't a legitimate President." What Donald Trump is, is what he says!

That's not a racist statement. That's a statement of fact.

Edit: I just looked up the 10 most dangerous cities, 2018. Surprisingly, Baltimore is only #7, with Detroit #2 and St Louis #1.

No doubt the President is right, Baltimore is a dump. The Detroit of the east.

That's what I love about these blogs. Every leftist argument gets crushed. The leftist media tries to hide the truth, but people across the nation expose it. And not only do they expose it in thread after thread right here on CD, but they point out the utter stupidity and failure of leftist policies writ large.

They have cameras, they use them.
They have experiences, they tell them.

They won't let themselves be boxed in by narratives that are designed to obfuscate those failures. I love it. Thank you and keep it up.

Here the Baltimore Sun editors absolutely destroy Trump:

”we would tell the most dishonest man to ever occupy the Oval Office, the mocker of war heroes, the gleeful grabber of women’s private parts, the serial bankrupter of businesses, the useful idiot of Vladimir Putin and the guy who insisted there are “good people” among murderous neo-Nazis that he’s still not fooling most Americans into believing he’s even slightly competent in his current post. Or that he possesses a scintilla of integrity. Better to have some vermin living in your neighborhood than to be one.”

Game over.

Baltimore Sun 1, Trump 0

Everything Trump says is racist. Actually, everything conservatives say is racist.

Lie is truth.

Truth is racist.

Fact is racist.

Next question please.

If only the BS would have been one tenth as critical of the failed leadership in Baltimore City, we might not be where we are now.


It's a left wing rag and part of the problem with Baltimore.
