President Trump is a fighter and on Wednesday he hit back at the Dems who accused him of racism because he dared speak the truth about the rat-infested city of Baltimore.
For the past week the Democrats, their media and RINOs like Mitt Romney and Chris Wallace called Trump a racist because he pointed out that Baltimore is a failed Democrat cesspool with an escalating homicide rate and rat-infested homes.
Billions of taxpayer dollars were given to Cummings’ district in 2018 so where did the money go?
We can’t even ask these honest questions because the Democrats just screech about racism without having an honest conversation.
The people in Baltimore should not being living in 3rd world conditions, but that’s what they get with Democrats in charge.
And where was the race mob when Cummings said back in 1999 that Baltimore is “infested” with drugs?
The 1999 video of Cummings was making the rounds on Wednesday and Trump grabbed it and threw it back in the Dems faces.
Sadly, the liberal media will not pass this information along to their useful idiots. Informing the public of facts is not their job; keeping the public in a propagandized liberal stupor is.
Some people just don’t get it.
It’s not that there aren’t problems with rats, or crime, or drugs in Baltimore, which is hardly unique to the city. It’s that Trump weaponizes these problems for repeated hateful, derogatory, racism-tainted attacks on Cummings, his city, and the people who are having to deal with such realities on a daily basis. The reasons for this are clear:
1) Trump is a flaming a-hole by nature, in the event that has escaped someone’s notice. He’s totally devoid of any normal concerns about who his words or actions might hurt; he will shamelessly attack an opponent by targeting anything he identifies as potential vulnerability, and relish doing it all the more if it excites like-minded elements in his base
2) Elijah Cummings has earned a high place on Trump’s personal Enemies List, by being an outspoken critic and a potential danger.
It’s as simple as that. Pretending this is alright because there really are rats, drugs, and crime is a refusal to acknowledge what Trump is actually doing.
So, for the last 10 of his 27 years in office, he’s known there was a big rodent infestation issue in his District, yet nothing has been done to beat it.
I once attacked a weed-infected part of our condo’s property.
People would see me weeding & weeding and laugh saying I’d never get all the weeds out.
But with consistent work and quick follow-up if weeds even started to try to make a comeback, I won!
The result was a drought-resistant garden of flowers (poppies and sticky monkey flowers and Catalina lace, among others) as well as lovely shrubbery.
But Cummings never even encouraged a start to fighting the rats.
So, they are still there, worse than ever.
There are thought to be as many rats in New York City as people. It has been guessed that anywhere you are, they’re never far away. Nobody has fixed that yet, either.
But as observed, it really isn’t about the rats.
Greggie Goebbels, your habit of calling the President pejoratives is exactly what you have absolutely no credibility. You are totally controlled by your obsessive hatred for Donald Trump. You throw out manure for no other reason than to see if it sticks and when it doesn’t, and others prove you wrong, you then go on another tirade.
And you wonder why those who respond to you treat you with total disdain and disrespect?
That is why I call you an idiot.
And frankly, as one who is of a minority heritage, I am sick to death that no matter what someone says, whose skin tone is lighter than the race baiter of the day, is labeled “racist.”
Actually, I sometimes still feel sorry for him, but his unrelenting attacks on people and things I respect have pretty much worn that down.
A quarter in the juke box…
Greg, It must be great to be able to read minds and ‘know’ what President Trump meant when he speaks or tweets. Surely with your superpower you can solve all the worlds problems and be able to police the thoughts of everyone of your fellow countrymen (and women). Its a good thing that we have you as the arbiter of truth, so you can call out all the racists. Presumably the next step it to round them all up and put them in some kind of camp for racists. Next would be to exterminate them, because, as your side likes to say, they are all Nazis.
Explain how RACE had anything at all to do with Trump’s remarks.
Think you can address ONE question? Is that too much to ask?
And of course, from Greggie Goebbels you will get…………………….
And make a note of this: yesterday, HUD Director Dr. Ben Carson was in Baltimore to examine the areas that are in such dire condition. He invited Elijah Cummings to join him. Cummings office said that he could not join Dr. Carson due to a “scheduling conflict.”
I have volunteered for a Congressman before and had to work with his scheduler and I can tell you that using the term “scheduling conflict” is simply an expression used for “Nah, I don’t want to do that.” The Baltimore press should have been on Cummings’ rear end to see what exactly he is doing on his six week vacation from D.C. Why doesn’t he have time to tour the despicable public housing and run down neighborhoods in his own district with Dr. Carson and try to come up with some viable ways to eliminate the problems his constituents face every day of the week?
And if I was Trump, I would send in a team of auditors and I would find out what the hell Baltimore city officials did with all those billions of $$ that the federal government sent them. I would be interesting to see how many $$ went into sweetheart deals that benefitted the leaders of Baltimore, including Elijah Cummings who seems butthurt that attention was brought to his district.
We know you don’t. Good thing democracy protects us from “some people” like you.
No, it’s called taking care of your own house before criticizing others. A simple lesson we teach to children.
The representatives are there to represent and take care of their districts, not be President. That’s a different job that they are free to run for, if they choose to, like AOC and others.
It’s why no one cares about the Russia Hoax. You just had Hillary get off the hook for emails and destroying a home-server (verifiable FACTS!!!), and now you want me to Impeach Trump for things we have zero evidence for?
It’s not about rats. It’s about not acting like one. Trump schooled Cummings, as he should.
They aren’t acting. They ARE rats. Filthy vermin.
@Rodney Wilson, #7:
I believe his words mean precisely what they say. Why does this man require dozens of interpreters and apologists to recast so many of his simple, direct statements into meanings that seem less outrageous?
One thing I do believe is the name of his Twitter feed: Donald Trump@realDonaldTrump. That, friends, is the real thing. It’s the pure, unfiltered, unadulterated stream-of-consciousness product. It’s the open window that shows what’s going on inside the man’s head.
@Greg: While you are believing his words mean what they are, why don’t you answer my question on #8?
@Deplorable Me: He’s just here to chatter…and the thought is to keep people divided and upset.
Anyone wonder if Greg is actually part of a Russian troll farm?
All of his ramblings are too contrived, and he just keeps talking after proved wrong…as if his job is to just mindlessly argue…and I’m pretty sure he’s only gleaning bits of what we write, not really reading it completely.
Greg: a paid troll.
@Deplorable Me, #8:
That’s actually two questions, both referring to a request that isn’t:
Having gotten the wise-ass impulse out of my system, I’ll have a go at it anyway.
Race seems to have to do with it in that oftentimes when Mr. Trump makes such highly derogatory generalizations, they seem to refer to specific racial, ethnic, or religious minorities—which I concede suggests the bigotry isn’t entirely racist. The undocumented Latino immigrants are rapists, murderers, drug pushers and gang members, though he acknowledges there might be a few good people among them; the population of the rat-invested, crime-ridden congressional district of Baltimore where nobody would want to live is predominantly black, as is their congressional representative whom he has recently called a thief; earlier on, he wanted to broadly ban the immigration of people of the Islamic faith. His remarks about women? Well, I suppose those don’t count as minority bashing since women aren’t actually a minority.
Maybe I’ll begin to think he might be an equal-opportunity insulter if he makes similar remarks about the poorly educated, meth-and-opiate-addicted, wife-beater and alcoholic infested trailer parks of the south and the Midwestern rust belt. But all I’ve heard along those lines is that there are some fine people among them…them being Klan and neo-Nazi demonstrators who have obviously turned up looking to provoke a fight. Not that any of this should come as a big surprise to anyone.
So…there you go. An answer. I suspect he’s a bigot because he so often talks like one. Racism is only one facet of that problem.
Well, he most definitely has aligned himself with those who are doing what they claim the Russians set out to do.
When it is absolutely accurate and has often been stated by others of varying races, it is neither bigoted OR racist. So, this generates ANOTHER question:
Are you accusing Bernie, the former Baltimore mayor, PBS and Cummings himself of bigotry?
See, Greg, there is a problem when you have to LIE to make your point. If you HAVE to lie to make your point, then your point is invalid, and here, your point is invalid. Trump stated, accurately, that criminals come in with the illegal immigrants. He never stated they were ALL criminals. You intentionally lied to try and establish that your point is valid. Stop lying, Greg. We KNOW when you are lying, so the practice is pointless. Lie to your liberal friends; like you, even when they KNOW it is a a lie, as long as it attacks Republicans, the lies are readily accepted and embraced. Lies don’t work here, though. So, you might as well stop lying.
So, do you know someone that would WANT to live in a rat-infested, crime-ridden neighborhood? Really? Provide ONE example. You are basing your accusation of racism on the same one used by other Democrats; the persons involved… the VICTIMS happen to be black. Actually, this reveals the overriding problem of YOUR party; it abuses and takes blacks for granted on a grand scale. When Democrats are in charge, THIS is what happens to blacks. They REMAIN in poverty for perpetuity. Democrat is still the party of slavery; it is just a bit less overt today.
Again with the lies. However, this brings up another question; why do you defend Democrats that cannot denounce al Qaeda, ISIS, ANTIFA and genital mutilation?
When you don’t go to the trouble to intentionally and dishonestly remove the context of Trump’s remarks about Charlottsville, he clearly speaks of those protesting to defend or remove statues. It was THE LEFT that showed up and instigated the violence. Once again, I remind you, those ignorant lies only gain traction among your ignorant liberal friends; here most are far too educated and informed to accept your lies. You really should stop lying.
Sorry… WHERE was the answer? Like Mueller’s report, it seems you take great effort NOT to say what you actually think. However, the bottom line is this: NOTHING he has said has been racist, bigoted or misogynistic. As you yourself proved by lying instead of answering is that the only way you can support your arguments is to lie.
LYING about someone being a racist is RACIST.
Perhaps you should read something other than the in-the-toilet-for-the Democratic-Party press that never seems to report on the crime committed by illegals in this country. Like the fact that when over a dozen MS-13 were busted recently, 10 of them were (tah-dah) illegals. Or when a drunk illegal plows into a cop who simply trying to direct traffic and the illegal is (once again) driving drunk. Or maybe you should just try admitting that it is ILLEGAL to enter our nation without permission and anyone who does that doesn’t respect our laws in the first place. I ask you; how many friends have you buried that have been killed by illegals?
If you’re so worried about the darker skinned population of this country, perhaps you should ask why it is that their neighborhoods, run by Democrats, are worse than some sh!tholes south of our border. Why does everyone complain about their schools when the teachers of those kids are just as black/brown as they are? Maybe we should start making minority teachers have to pass their tests with the same grades as given to whites/Native Americans/Asians. But I doubt that will ever happen because the Democrats have decided that blacks are just too stupid to even pass police/fire department entrance exams and therefor need to be given an advantage (called a politically correct exam). News flash to all the Democrats, blacks are not that stupid. But, hey, what’s a few rats chewing on your kid when they sleep at night as long as race hustlers like Sharpton, and yeah, Cummings, can keep their mugs in the limelight and make a few bucks off of it, to boot? I noticed that when Trump slammed Pelosi for the sorry state of affairs in her state, Jew-hater Sharpton didn’t go running to her defense. How could he? Pelosi is white.
Nice generalization there, Greggie Goebbels. Nothing like lumping in a whole segment of our nation into your perceived idea of those in fly-over country. You know, those that cling to the G-d and guns.
OMG, NEWS FLASH!!!!!!! People who live in mobile homes in the South and Midwest are all KKK and neo-Nazis. BEWARE…………BEWARE………….BEWARE.
You’re a pig, Greggie Goebbels. You don’t give a d@mn how the Democrats in the inner cities rob the very people they were elected to help. Just as long as the have a (D) behind their names, all is A-OK with you.
Remember, the Democrat rules don’t apply to Democrats.
Many of the narco countries south of the border have their crime stats falling as a direct result of all the tens of thousands of their citizens coming to the USA.
IF all these “asylum seekers,” were the best people, this would not be the case.
It is obvious that criminals are among those crossing into the USA and Mexico from these places.

Cummings house was broken into. Trump tweets today “Too bad!”
This president is a horrible excuse for a human being. Hopefully this national embarrassment will end in 2020.
@Mitch Agee: So you would prefer the President to Tweet, “Hooray”? At least he didn’t Tweet that he hoped Cummings was killed or raped; that’s only how “civil” Democrats act, isn’t it?
Personally, I find it funny. Ironic. Karma. Justice. I just wonder if they found Cummings’ stash of money he and his wife stole from non-profits. Maybe it was some of the poverty-stricken Baltimore residents looking for the funds meant to help THEM.
I would prefer that the President of the USA be a decent human being and not engage in the slander that you seem to revel in.
It wasn’t Cumming’s home that was broken into. It was a house that Cummings owns that Cummings rents out to someone else.
And it was “too bad” that the house was broken into.
@Deplorable Me, #17:
Oh, no, he never said they’re all criminals. Some are good people.
“…and some, I assume, are good people…”
What you’ve got there is an example of thinly veiled bigotry, along the lines of the “some negroes are fine people” that I remember hearing during my childhood. As I became more aware of the world around me, the unspoken part of the thought became clear enough. It was a case of a veneer of truth hiding a dangerous racist premise. It was like a thin sugar coating that made a poisonous pill easier to swallow.
Why should it bother you in the least? It’s nothing more than a turn-about of the sort of thing Donald Trump has said on many occasions.
Apparently the point I intended to make has been made, though I never expect that to be acknowledged. Your dishonest response serves as evidence of that.
You’re still a pig, Greggie Goebbels, and should be shunnd by all in polite society.
If you believe you can tell by the smell, I would point out that odor isn’t actually something that can be transmitted over the internet. Perhaps you should check for the source elsewhere.
Pigs smell because they roll in their own feces, something you do every time you post.
@Mitch Agee: Would you agree that the President of the United States (or any person, for that matter) should not be called a racist, a traitor, a criminal, a misogynist, a Russian agent without any proof or evidence? Or, is that OK with liberals as long as it is directed at Republicans? Who has Trump “slandered”?
Try to scrape together an answer.
@Greg: Yet, your quote attributed to Trump is a LIE. What he said about criminals coming across our border along with the illegal immigrants is a verified fact based on FBI statistics. So, why would you twist real statistical facts into a slanderous lie? Oh, that’s right… without lies, liberals would have nothing to support their position.
Or how Biden finally found that one black that was “clean and articulate”? Gosh, seems the racism seems to keep coming back home to roost where it belongs… in the lap of the Democrats.
I assume some liberals are good people; it’s a statistical certainty, though it is difficult to prove.
@Deplorable Me, #30:
It’s not about statistics. If he cited the statistics, they wouldn’t make his argument. Undocumented immigrants are statistically less likely to commit serious crimes like murder, rape, or drug trafficking than natural-born U.S. citizens. That is a statistical fact. It’s about what’s hiding just below the surface in that word “some”, and the fact that many people understand perfectly what he’s saying when he uses it. The video clip tells even more about that than the words do alone.
@Greg: No they aren’t, they are MORE likely. THAT has been statistically proven as well.
It’s not “non-citizens” that commit the crimes, it’s “illegal immigrants”
Illegal immigrants commit serious, violent crimes at a far higher rate than citizens
And liberal sanctuary cities only make the problem worse, releasing illegal immigrant criminals instead of abiding by the law and allowing ICE to pick them up. Beyond any possibility of argument, Democrats favor illegal immigrants, even CRIMINALS, above law abiding tax paying citizens.
The gun control left will not even support a bill to report illegal immigrants trying to purchase a gun to ICE. All Democrats do is try to cultivate their next voting block to replace American citizens that are wising up.
@Deplorable Me, #32:
Not according to a study completed in August 2018 by the CATO Institute—which, by the way, is a libertarian organization co-founded by Charles Koch, who isn’t exactly anyone’s idea of a leftist.
Their findings clearly demonstrated the opposite: that the crime rate of illegal immigrants per 100,000 is markedly less than that of natural-born U.S. citizens.
The Heritage Foundation is spinning a tale based on incarceration rates, which is something else entirely. They’re unquestionably biased, and well-known for cranking out this sort of misleading material on any politicized issue. That’s their primary function.
@Greg: Well, they DO according to the statistics.
The only thing good about illegal immigration is that Democrats intend to use them, in addition to mowing their yards and raising their children, for votes. Democrats don’t give a damn about the US taxpayer; everyone is nothing but a token to them. They use everyone and everything as long as they are useful. Democrats love gun crime because that allows them to exploit that tragedy. So, they pursue policies that ensure MORE gun violence. The same with illegal immigration, regardless of the misery suffered by those they openly lure to come here or the victims of illegal immigrant crime. All the misery and tragedy serves the Democrat agenda.
I can’t believe anyone would support such trash.
@Nathan Blue: Greggie is here for laughs and yes he’a a worthless troll or worse the dumbest POS on the face of the planet, i.e. a Liberal/Progressive, a part of a species that is totally incapable of understanding virtually anything they haven’t been programmed for.
@Greg: Even if their crime rate was zero, they still need to follow the rules and come in to a port of entry, legally.
There’s simply no argument on this.
Would you sneak into Canada and call them assh*les for apprehending you as an invader?
You wouldn’t. You’d follow the laws they have because they are a sovereign nation. Just like us.
But their crime rate is NOT zero; it’s greater than that of citizens. And EVERY crime committed by an illegal immigrant has a Democrat as a co-conspirator.
