“Speaking of failing badly, has anyone seen what is happening to Nancy Pelosi’s district in San Francisco.” Trump wrote on Twitter. “It is not even recognizable lately. Something must be done before it is too late.”
And guess where Pelosi was from originally. Baltimore.

Only if the subject had been Baltimore.

Trump's willingness to launch irrelevant attacks against critics is something out of junior high. It's like whenever he hears criticism he responds : "Your mama!"

This is directly out of the playbook of his mentor and early influence, Roy Cohn -- the best defense is to attack your opponent. If Trump had absorbed an Ivy League education he would realize the fallacy of ad hominem arguments. He needs to stick to the issue.

Who hasn't driven through Baltimore, or any inner city, and hasn't thought the same? Trust me, the first people to agree with Trump are the people who actually live there. The guy is living off crossing a bridge for 60 years.

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?
Well he IS the president for Baltimor(ians?) just like everyone else. How do you think they feel about their president saying that?

Baltimore residents pay a 3.2% special city income tax in addition state income tax, sales tax and property taxes to live basically in the third-world.

Looks like President Trump was right, he always been and always will be. Then again the Democrats are the party of crime and out of control births from poor people who will have children that will become future criminals.
By the same logic, Donald Trump is responsible for every murder committed in the United States since he was inaugurated.

No, I don’t believe that either, but it’s no more ludicrous than what you said.

It’s obviously not. Someone posted a poll here the other day stating something like 40% of all democrats believe ANY criticism of minorities is racist. Unbelievable stuff.

LOL - A New Yorker calling Baltimore rat infested.

The rats in New York live on a diet of pizza and junk food, or has Trump not seen the famous viral NYC pizza rat videos.

This is where I see the problem. Every time he uses words like **** hole etc is exclusively for minorities, let me know when he uses one on a community that is not full of minorities
I think you need to identify a non minority community with the same problems before you continue.
