It's been over 30 years for Cummings, when is he going to accomplish something other than crying about fake racism and blaming other people for his failures?

Gee, how unoriginal. Come up with some new material.
I didn’t say “you’re racist.”

Yeah, you're good at circumventing the TOS. Pro tip - there's no need to, your cohorts get away with calling people racists daily on this site.

A chip off the ol' father-in-law. He taught him well. This family's grifts never end.

And what does it tell us? If you choose your slums carefully, there is a lot of money to be made. I know, some people on the left seem to have a problem with turning a profit, but most people don’t begrudge someone that.

Default Take it from the Mayor

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh was touring some of the congressional district of Elijah Cummings in 2018 when she said:

…”What the hell – we should just take all this **** down. Ooh, you can smell the rats”…

Again, I didn’t say “you’re racist” or anything akin to it. You just made it up.

Don’t blame TOS circumvention for making a dumb accusation. You simply didn’t know what you were talking about. Nothing to do with the TOS and everything to do with your reading comprehension.

Calling it a dump, even if it is, is not what I would call presidential dialogue.
While this could be viewed as fair criticism, would Mr. Cummings have gotten the message as loudly and clearly as he has had Trump used less inflammatory invective?

Probably not.

As a result of Trump's Twitter exchange, Mr. Cummings cannot ignore the results of his own nonfeasance any longer. Nor can anyone else.

I don't expect or want one from that bigot. You know what they say....birds of a feather flock together.

When is Trump going to realize Baltimore is part of the USA, that he is president of the USA, and do something about it?

I expect nothing from the pile of trash in the White House.
