And they ignore Bernie Sanders like the plague because what he said about Baltimore completely destroys their fake narrative.

Didn't Trump say during his inauguration speech that he wanted to help improve inner-cities?

Why doesn't Trump do something to help the people of "rat-infested" Baltimore instead of talk badly about it?

We call an exterminator. Yes? What happens when leaders start calling human being vermin? Think about it--I already answered for you in this very reply...
wow. good job of completely ignoring that he said ‘RAT-infested’.
which it absolutely is.

But the thing is, the moms, parents, etc. would rather have been out of the violence entirely. Baltimore cops have policed the same crimes in the same places for decades.

I donít see the border connection.
You are grossly mis-informed.


Cummings as a member of Congress MADE THE BORDER STATEMENTS 1st.

Well, Iíve always said that Baltimore is grimy but there are nice parts. The issue with Trump is that he reserves certain language for areas with certain groups of people. Thatís why people take issue with him.

Personally, Trump and those who support him are exposing to the world the real picture of the U.S. Now people see the red/blue split. Now people see the hypocrisy.

I visited New York City about 15 years ago, there were rats all over Manhattan and the Bronx.

Maybe somebody will throw that back in Mushroom Donny's face LOL

While obviously not 100% guaranteed, like many major cities staying out of drug infested inner city neighborhoods will greatly increase your chances for safety. The whole city is not like that.
"The whole city is not like that."
Trump did NOT say it was, did he?

Why aren't you calling out Elijah Cummings who's represented it for 30 years FOR NOT talking about it. Because of Trump WE are talking about it. It's only the Democrats who are trying to shut it down by saying racism in every other breath.

Good post, now let's reverse it.
Since cummings is critiquing Trump, thus he is critiquing a WHITE person. If a black person is critiquing white people, than automatically that black person is a racist.
