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?

So, just because they have a different skin color they CAN'T be criticized for anything!

Sounds racist to me.

"inappropriate comments", like what? They ARE members of CONGRESS and what they do or DON'T do is CANNOT be criticized.

If they CAN'T handle criticism they should NOT have run for congress.

We can turn you "desire" around.

Because they are NOT white, they CANNOT criticize a WHITE person. They are RACISTS if they do! How do you like THAT?

Now the democrats are bringing in the big gun/big mouth race hating, race baiting, race hustler Al Sharpton to suck some money out of Baltimore and agitate like a washing machine !!! The healer !!! My patuti
The Dems are worried !!! Trump has called them on their BS !!!

Al Sharpton has become the king maker and gateway to the black vote !!! Dems running for office have to have a sit down with Al and kiss the ring !!!

My prediction: Trump will replace Kissinger and become the new GOP king maker at some point after he leaves office !!! Trump will be doing some of his best work calling out weak GOP leadership when they go into the fetal position when confronted by the Dems. Trump will be a force for another two decades after 2024 !!!


That should help'! Al Sharpton says he's 'headed to Baltimore' to assist ...

He offered no constructive criticism. He offered invective...with all the proper right wing dog whistling thrown in.
Here's one of the things Trump and the Rs did for inner cities:

Baltimore Development Corporation | Opportunity Zones

But after 50 years of Democratic mayors, there's just so much any prez can do for Baltimore, Trump, Obama or anyone else. Local and state gov't. along with members of Congress good at pork barrel projects are more important than the prez. As odd as Giuliani is now, he turned NYC around in the 90's after years of awful D mayors.

Nah.

The REAL problem is that Democrats have been hit squarely in the nose for one of their biggest failures of the last 50 years. The sad and sorry state of the Inner City. Elijah Cummings cares more about making a political statement for the rights of Illegal Aliens over that of the plight of the citizens who live in the Democrat plantation that he represents. And clearly those people are waking up to Trump.

And the Democrats are scared as hell at it because they got nothing more than the "You Rassis" response.

It's what Presidents are supposed to do. You know it. You just don't want to admit.

Don't like it, DON'T respond to my posts. It's that easy!
Liking or not liking has nothing to do with it on my end/my POV. I'm replying with counterpoints that you don't like

You are obviously projecting because you don't like my replies.

Tough.

You threw questions onto the thread.

I'm allowed to reply to them as long as I follow the TOS, and that's true for me and for anyone else whose posts you don't like.

If you don't like my posts, then put me on ignore.

It sounds as though I struck a nerve....that someone else at some point may have echoed my replies .

Trump supporters - do you care at all that a lot of black people were offended by Trump's comments? Or are those black people just snowflakes?

And, if you don't care about whether or not Trump's comments offended a lot of Black Americans, do you care about the black vote in 2020?
If you can't take criticism, get out of congress.


Give it up you will NOT win this "battle"

As they say, there is always a tweet:


Our great African American President hasnít exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore!
ó Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 28, 2015


President Obama, you have a big job to do. Go to Baltimore and bring both sides together. With proper leadership, it can be done! Do it.
ó Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 28, 2015


ď@Vanderpunked: Can we drop @realDonaldTrump off in the middle of #Baltimore so he can show Obama how itís done?Ē I would fix it fast!
ó Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 28, 2015

"The president is expected to be better than that"


And congressmen are NOT "expected to be better than that"?
