Louder and more hateful: Big-city leaders say Trumps attacks on Baltimore are escalation of his strategy to denigrate diverse, liberal areas
President Trumps denunciations of Baltimore as an uninhabitable city are the latest in a string of disparaging attacks on diverse, liberal enclaves as violent, dirty and outside the mainstream rhetoric that paints those areas of the country as fundamentally less American than whiter, more conservative strongholds.
Trump denigrated Marylands largest city over the weekend as a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess and blamed it on Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.), who is black, and claimed on Sunday that the lawmaker himself is racist. Long before, Trump had taken aim at other major cities, some of which are predominantly African American, and their elected leaders.
He called San Francisco streets disgusting, labeled Oakland and Ferguson, Mo., among the most dangerous places in the world, and lambasted the crime spree and terrible blight in Chicago. He also tagged Atlanta as crime infested and said the city represented by civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) was falling apart.

Trump is giving the RATS a lot more respect then they have been giving him as president.
This should give Trump another 3 point boost.
So the De.ocrats are proud of their inept governance

No khalilah, it won't be enough until diseased liberal enclaves are cleansed and made habitable.
Say, y’all didn’t happen to hear what Burning Sandals said about Baltimore, did ya?
Of the blue shitties Baltimore is the most charmin’.
But these areas ARE violent, dirty, and outside the mainstream.
She have her genitals mutilated yet? or wearing her burlap sack in honor of moe-ham-head?
It’s sort of an outdated idea, most major US cities are a lot nicer than they are given credit for. (maybe not Baltimore) But over the last decade or two there has been a lot of urban renewal or gentrification whatever you want to call it and the suburbs and rural areas have a lot more negatives than people talk about openly. A lot of the poverty and things associated with it (drugs, crime, teen pregnancy what have you) are much worse in the cheaper suburbs and rural areas
Just me personally but I live in DFW and it’s so much better here now than it was in the 70s & 80s and I slowly realized this wasn’t just here but basically everywhere
When hysterical snowflakes talk about high areas of crime, they o secure the truth and blame guns.
Rational policies lower crime and help the people most harmed by crime, who are typically the poor and minorities.
Hysterical policies like gun control leave the crime rate unchanged or elevate it which helps the people least harmed by crime, who are typically Lilly white delicate affluent liberals in "safe" areas.
Small wonder the Dem pols are losing their minds right now.
...obscure...not “o secure”...sorry..
Partisan Media Shills update.
It is impossible to denigrate Baltimore or its supposed leaders.
Baltimore is a liberal idea? Bwahahahahaha
The question that matters is: Did President Trump tell the truth about these cities? The answer is YES - Trump told the truth about these cities.
The question that doesn't matter is: did someone's feelings get hurt...
I understand what you’re saying, but that doesn’t apply across the board. Jersey City NJ has seen similar gentrification IN PARTS (but in general isn’t a great place), while Newark NJ (slightly further from NYC) is still a dangerous dump - attempts to gentrify are falling flat. Like Baltimore, Newark has a primarily black power structure, while Jersey City does not.
Our rural areas see some poverty (it is “The Garden State” - we do have a lot of farms here), but the cost of living in the suburbs is so high (primarily due to property taxes) that people who get caught up in destructive behavior can only live where a massive nanny-state will provide for all of their needs - and only cities here are really equipped to do that. I assume from my limited knowledge of Seattle, San Francisco, even Baltimore, that there is a huge industry in giving sh!t away that attracts people who can’t provide for themselves - or use proper bathrooms.
Looks like there’s another word to add to my Newspeak dictionary: “Denigrate” which means “to tell the truth about something leftist.”
