Dem presstitute hack Margaret Brennan on Face the Nation, interviewing Mick Mulvaney, referenced Trump's tweet about people of Baltimore not wanting to live with rats, claiming it was racist. Huh? So she believes black people like living with rats? Her breast implants must be leaking into what's left of her brain.

Wow, this really backfired on the Democrats, just like the Jihad Squad.

I could agree with this.

Again, there are SO many different things he could have said that would've been a lot less controversial and still get his point across about Cummings' district.

That leads me to the question- why. Why does Trump always insist on making comments that are teetering on being racist to the point where many African-Americans are upset by it. Does he do it please his base?

Why say it at all? Is he or is he not the president of Baltimore too?

Again, why doesn’t he talk about such infamous dumps as Mississippi or Kentucky? What’s with him always saying something about where blacks and Latinos are most heavily represented?

I know why! But that’s fine. Just adds more fuel to the fire on everything we think about the GOP hatred of blacks.

Yep. His base wants him to insult African Americans as much as possible.

What hypocrites they are.
So I guess it's good that the president is kicking an American city when it's down. Hell, there are lots of other "dumps" with high murder rates in America that he could shame (it's well-known how shaming can help people change their behavior). Maybe Kansas City can be next or Cleveland, or Jacksonville, Philadelphia, Milwaukee. Or maybe not...some of those cities have Republican representation at the federal level, and all but Kansas City are in swing states. So... I doubt we'll ever hear the president publicly call those cities crime-infested dumps or hellholes or whatever.

Wrong.

Q: Has the Obama administration started a program to use "taxpayer money" to give free cell phones to welfare recipients?

A: No. Low-income households have been eligible for discounted telephone service for more than a decade. But the program is funded by telecom companies, not by taxes, and the president has nothing to do with it.

It wasn't until the Late 80s when I got my first Car phone which was a hard case that mounted in the trunk. People did not have cell phones anywhere near like we have today while Reagan was President.

It is seriously not cool for any American President to call any American City "A dump".
I lived in Baltimore for a short while back in the 1980's. There are some bad areas for sure, but there were some really
nice places too. Many people live and work there, and grew up there....it's insulting to them that the President would call it "A dump".
