Peace be with you, in any event.
Some of the Democratic politicians are indicting white males, so there's that.

Then there's the issue of some very racist black folks who are Democrats.

I don't know if Trump is truly a racist. I wonder about that because 1) he put up a homeless black woman in one of his buildings at no charge to her and 2) hired a black female and put her in charge of his foundation - both years before he started running for office. I don't think a racist would do either.

I think he's biased and ignorant and stereotypes groups of people. He also communicates and responds to things like a child. I have NO respect for the guy.

But I also lost respect for Hillary Clinton back in the day when she said the toughest crime bill that would ensure black males being incarcerated was necessary 'because they're super predators who need to be taken to heel.'

Now THAT is racist.

I just want your perspective. Why do you think there are so many people rising to Trump's defense regarding his crass behavior? Just from your opinion.

Once again -- simply put.

Trump may very well be right about conditions in some parts of Balitmore.

BUT the reason he brought it up, the way he brought it up, why he brought it up and how he told Cummings to 'go back' were all wrong.

WRONG...there is no way to spin that his motives were childish, mean, spiteful, hateful.

Yes Baltimore has some really bad areas. And yes something should be done but let's not pretend this President cares until it is time to use that information to hurl insults at someone for criticizing Trump's immigration policy.

Motive counts.

CNN is milking this for all it's worth: Talking non-stop... calling the President "racist" and touting Cummings as some kind of wonderful guy. The truth is: Most Baltimore residents do NOT want Cumming there... as he has done nothing for the residents.

OF course.

He bears responsibility when he shills for improving the welfare and lives of illegal aliens over that of his own constituents, who, BTW, are American citizens and who BTW are in worse conditions than those that King Elijah speaks of at the border.

And those idiots are doing exactly what Trump wants them to do too. They are too clueless to get it.

A complaint has been filed with the IRS regarding Cummings wife.

BALTIMORE — A government ethics watchdog has filed a complaint with the Internal Revenue Service against a charity run by the wife of Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings.

The complaint was filed on Monday by the National Legal and Policy Center against the Center for Global Policy Solutions, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization headed by Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, the Congressman's wife.

Its main purpose, they say, is for the IRS to investigate whether "its organizers are getting fat off the grants."

Rockeymoore Cummings is also President of a similarly named for-profit consulting firm called Global Policy Solutions, LLC., which has listed the same address and phone number as the charity.

According to the complaint, public tax records show that both entities received millions in health policy grants and contracts from the same groups and organizations, including the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation from 2007 through 2016 and the General Services Administration in 2017.

Actually he is pointing out the cancer in America, some of which happen to be black, while others, Hillary, for example, are European American. What they have in common is that they are all a cancer on the country.

President Trump on Monday blasted Rev. Al Sharpton as a "con man," claiming he "hates whites & cops," after the MSNBC host said he would travel to Baltimore amid the controversy over the president's comments about the city and its Democratic lawmakers.

Sharpton tweeted Sunday evening that he would travel to Baltimore to "address Trump's remarks & bi-partisan outrage in the black community" over them. Trump responded by slamming Sharpton, saying they have known each other for decades and used to attend fights together. But the president did not pull any punches when weighing in on Sharpton's character.

This says it all:

“Trump says I’m a troublemaker & con man,” Sharpton added. “I do make trouble for bigots. If he really thought I was a con man he would want me in his cabinet.”
