Cummings slamming the conditions at the border...hasn't done one damn thing for the people he represents

Trump calls him out on "glass houses".....and he deserved it big time

the only way it could be racist...is if it attacked black culture
..libs must think rat infested black ghettos...are black culture

Trump is 100% right.....

Donald J. Trump
Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA......
Cummings is the living, breathing, useless AF Clay Davis character from “The Wire”. Decades ... DECADES in office and he’s never got a damn thing done. Baltimore politics seem to MANDATE dysfunction and dishonor. It’s a long-standing tradition there.

Since Democrats have been unable to find a record of white creatures living at the bottom of such a crack, Trump's step clearly affects COCs ("Creatures Of Color") more than light-skinned creatures. Therefore his step was clearly an act of racism, and Democrat fanatics will routinely line up to condemn him for this latest outrage and demand his impeachment.

Any time now.....
Very few people get up in the morning and say to themselves, "hey, I think I'll start a thread about a totally false supposition about Donald Trump being accused of racism by democrats for stepping on a sidewalk crack. I know it's a stretch too far but what the hay, My dear leader Trump does the same thing every day with twitter, so why not me?" When a democrat pushes back, Just like Trump, I'll double down on them with personal attacks. Nothing like adding to the general chaos on P&OC.?

"Ohhhhhhh Look! A democratic racist sidewalk crack and Trump stepped on it." "Not really but could happen in the alt right universe. If I post it on P&OC, by noon it will be a fact in every alt right Blog. Maybe even Trump will repost it and I'll be chosen to sit behind him at his next Nuremburg Rally in a red state."

My only question to you, Roboteer is, Are you completely, totally, enveloped with senses of ennui and despair or are you just bat crap crazy?

And a follow up question, has another sitting president ever - ever - called an American city "a dump"?
Name any place in Appalachia that is a dump and is a city and has a Democrat trying to impeach him for no reason at all. Name any well-known, multi-termed Congressman from Appalachia. The point is, if I say Baltimore is a dump, everyone who hears me say it, knows what I mean. It I say Boogeyville (a made up town name, population 1,234) there isn't a soul who would pay attention except maybe the people in Boogeyville who aren't children.

When I lived in Maryland (not Baltimore) for 12 years (1995 - 2007) Baltimore was a dump. I used to call it Pothole City because the potholes were like moon craters and there were many of them. The movie Ladder 49 was filmed in Baltimore (this was when Martin O'Malley was the mayor and that little short lady whose name escapes me right now was a long-time Senator from Baltimore) so I decided one day (right before St Patrick's Day) to take some photos of the outside of the firehouse where it was being filmed. I also decided to take a cab, not my car, from the hotel where I was staying overnight so I could photograph the actors in the parade the next day. The firehouse was about a half block in from a main road. The cab driver (who was black) told me not to go past the firehouse and when I was done, to walk back to the main road and call him from there to come and pick me up because it was too dangerous to wait for him in that neighborhood and he wasn't going to drive in there to get me. I also recall that Baltimore set some kind of record one New Year's Day for the most murders after midnight in X amount of time. I don't know if it was a Baltimore record it broke or a US Cities record it broke. I don't know anything about rats. (The cab drivers are nice.)

Trump is in the business of taking derelict properties in bad sections of town and turning them into something that improves the entire neighborhood and somehow he is a racist monster for doing it.

If only these ridiculous Dems that are trashing America as a whole and championing for the Rights of illegal aliens while turning their backs on their constituents would only return to their districts to help the good people there we would all be better off.

The Harbor is nice. Unfortunately it's now experiencing crime issues. Tourists with money and wayward youth aren't mixing well.

Baltimore also pioneered the use of CCTV to monitor behaviors and coupled that with facial recognition software.

Almost like being in London.
The murder rate in Baltimore was in decline last time I checked.

Baltimore, like other U.S. cities, sees declines in homicides in 2018 - Baltimore Sun

Of course it doesn't but I do remember when critiquing the president of color the left thought it made them a racist.

If you don't live here, you don't know what you're talking about.

You've been lucky when visiting. I'd suggest being more careful, because with the attitude you've displayed you're probably the next victim.
