Trump Slams Elijah Cummings and Baltimore

Today’s thought from the resistance.

So today goes down as one of the most unbelievably ridiculous moments for our psychiatrically challenged president yet. This morning Trump put out the following tweet about Elijah Cumming’s congressional district:

“Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous,” Mr. Trump wrote. “His district is considered the Worst in the USA.” He went on: “Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place.”

Sorry Donnie, Cummings district includes almost all of Howard County Maryland and a number of other areas. The district also includes the town identified by Money magazine as the 2016 top rated small city in the United States, Columbia, MD. Columbia has also consistently ranked in the top ten. So much for this excuse for a human being knowing or caring anything about our country or it’s people.

Incidentally, I lived with my family in Columbia MD for 15 years (1974 – 1989). A wonderful place to raise children and live. Also do not allow this idiot to disparage Baltimore and the surrounding areas. He is saying this because he believes someone like Elijah Cummings (read, not white) could not represent the top-rated small city in the United States. He believes, if you are not white you could only represent a “rat and rodent infested mess.”

My disgust for Trump grows with every day.

We will not be silent!
