Progressives will staunchly defend the residents of Baltimore without ever shutting up long enough to actually listen to actual residents of Baltimore share their own criticisms of their city and elected leaders.

Progressives figure that black Baltimorians are too dumb to speak for themselves, and need the gallant assistance of the Democratic Party to whisk to their defense. As usual.

To start with, Presidents shouldn't make blatantly disparaging remarks about a locale in the first place (for any reason). BTW, he insulted White Southerners at one point as well - calling Jeff Sessions "A dumb southerner" and using a mock Southern accent during a CPAC speech.

Republicans Are proudly embracing true racism.

OK.

Not that surprising at all.

They’re just taking the sheets out of back of the closet that were there since the ‘60’s. Dog whistles don’t suffice anymore.

According to Democrats this lady couldn't possibly exist.


Trump's a genius. He knows how to hit Democrats squarely where it hurts them bad. Very bad.

I agree with the above. He's uncouth and crass. I wouldn't invite him to a bbq or dinner party because he's a slob who doesn't know how to conduct himself in a proper manner.

It's not about defending the residents of Baltimore. It's about defending the politicians of Baltimore. If Baltimore actually IS as bad as the president says it is, it focuses attention on those who lead that city. For the past few years. For the past few decades.

As the saying goes "what have you done for me lately?"

Words have consequences. Deal with it.
Iím defending nobody. Iím calling attention to your blatant immaturity and name-calling. You are behaving just like the President that you constantly whine about here. You are no better than him. Own it.

Trump is a counterpuncher. Leave him alone and he'll leave you alone. I thought everyone knew that. You didn't?

Trump was praised by those same so called black leaders before he ran for office. You can find the videos of those events on youtube (unless youtube has hidden them now). Many of us have posted them here in the past. Maybe search for them, hmm?

What changed? They knew they couldn't get any more of Trump's money? The DNC doesn't want any of their slaves leaving the plantation and have them on a tight leash?

Democrats are some of the most racist people I've ever met and don't think Democratic pols are above making racist statements because that's a lie.

I'm a Dem, before you go calling me a Republican. I'm being pushed out of the Democratic party - I will NEVER be a Republican.
