Honestly I thought it was just his regular ignorance and not racist.

He said the same thing about Atlanta when another black man - Representative John Lewis, said something he didn't like.

He often lashes out and says idiotic things because he's an a$$hole.

Nah.... it's really not like that. I think Fox or Breitbart or whatever rag ya'll keep getting this from is dangerous.

He's a racist. It's very clear that he's a racist. He's also an elitist. So unless you're as wealthy as him, he really doesn't like you, either.

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?
If he had called both Baltimore and parts of Appalachia as dumps and places where no one would want to live then that would not have made him a racist. But targeting only places that have more presence of one race? Yeah, can't get away with it.

I'm not seeing it either.

I think that him not being considerate enough to think about the population of a city before he says hateful things is racist, though. Not actively, but definitely passively.

He doesn't care enough about the people in those cities where most people didn't vote for him to think "am I calling a predominantly-black city a 'dump' and risking that being taken the wrong way?"

Not very much of a deep thinker, that guy.

Pretty much just an ass.

That is going to hit a lot of people real hard when this (bold part) realization hits them. Sad!

So, "go back" is the new racist phrase?

Who would have thought....

Is it okay for a US President to say that about a US city?

Nope.

Baltimore has problems, no doubt about it. But, is he thoughtful in his approach to bringing this up and does he care?

Nah... he is just out to take shots at Cummings.


He doesn't give a damn about Baltimore or Baltimore's residents. Just about attacking Cummings.
