You’re trying to get cute now? Trump has really emboldened you wallflowers in the last few years, huh?

No matter. When he’s gone, you’ll go back to your walls again like the meek people you really are. Put money on it.
Is there any wonder why the msm/dnc blows the “racism” dog whistle?

Ironically, Mar-a-Lago has been cited for 78 health violations over a three year period. I think the owner ought to be fined for that parasite-infested mess.

However, some of his supporters will be thinking "it's a Black city, what else can you expect from such a city".

I don't want to live in Baltimore. It's not for me. However, as a sitting President, there are certain things that are expected. Calling a city a dump as sitting President is a good way to anger people who might consider voting for you.
I’m seeing there is no reasoning with you either. The only “dog whistle” is the one you and your ilk so easily respond to like chumps.

Trump supporters....anything?
One thing you have to give him: He's completely fearless in the face of charges of racism.

Then again...he never once mentioned race in any of these constructive criticisms he offered.

Trump is like the kids I deal with at my job. "I didn't start it, he did." "Johnny is the bully, not me..." It is the same old story, same old song and dance. Make people confused or devalue the phrase. Many people say Cummings is racist but I never heard concrete proof. Trump has concrete proof. With all his comments he has to be a race-baiter, if not a full-on racist.

The idiots can only be fired by the people. They deserve to be fired, but the fat man can't do it for them. If Trump even tried the anti-trumpets would be screaming Federal interference. ACLU would be suing. He would be called a racist for trying to change Baltimore.

In this case the idiots are happy to wallow in their own filth and are happy to blame someone else. Why didn't Obama fix Baltimore? The riots happened on his watch.
Obama isn’t the president now, and he also didn’t speak on Baltimore.

Trump did. Again, Trump is the president of Baltimore too. What’s his role in its decay? Why doesn’t he help fix it? He’s spending billions to fix Kabul, and the people of Baltimore are helping to foot the bull.

Wallow in their own filth? You’re wallowing in it too. Baltimore is part of the United States. It’s emblematic of YOUR values and mores too. You’re no different than the residents. In fact, you might be worse.

Baltimore's troubles are widely known and have been widely reported on by the media, especially during the riots after Freddy Gray's death.

Trump is wrong for publicly bashing a US city, calling it a dump. He's wrong because he represents the people in that city - in every American city - and insulting it in such a crude and dismissive way is him punching down, as usual. However, this time he is punching down on his own country. I thought he was this uber patriot who loved America and was going to fix it. I guess that love doesn't extend to Baltimore. Gotta make you wonder what other parts of America Trump doesn't like

You do know Green_Mariner is an African-American right? If not, consider yourself informed and understanding of why he would catch it as a "dog whistle." Mind you I'm white and I caught that issue too...

According to you he is wrong. I ask you this question though. Is he lying about what he is saying? IMO he is 100% right. No one is denying that it is the truth. They are mad he said it. But it's true!

So...the joke's on you. Try again.
