Skip to comments.Trump Criticism of Baltimore Assailed [semi-satire]
Posted on 08/02/2019 4:56:49 PM PDT by John Semmens
President Trump's criticism of the rampant crime, corruption, and filth that pervades the City of Baltimore was characterized as "racist" by his political opponents in the Democratic Party and the media.
Though Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md) had previously made similar criticisms of the City, he took offense at "the President's insensitive remarks. It is one thing for those of us who have had to suffer the decades of misgovernment to complain. It is quite another for a white outsider to dare to expose it to the world. That's racist."
Trump pointed out that "Cummings has represented the worst portions of Baltimore for more than 20 years in Congress. Yet, conditions in his district are worse than when he started. Last year, the federal government provided $16 billion in aid to try to improve living conditions in Baltimore. Where has this money gone? Why hasn't the garbage been cleaned up and the rats exterminated? Why haven't the criminals been arrested?"
Cummings brushed off Trump's criticisms by reminding him that "it was the last three mayors who stole the City's money. I am not the one responsible for their corruption. I am not the one who has tied the hands of the police. My job has been to lobby for more federal aid to the Cityan effort that has largely been successful."
The President was not impressed by Cummings' attempt to doge responsibility. "He knew the Democrat mayors were corrupt," Trump observed. "Yet he made no effort to rein-in their embezzlement. Instead, he acted as an agent for the transfer of taxpayers' money out of the federal treasury and into their corrupt hands. He has abetted theft and ignored his duty to serve his constituents."
Despite all the assertions that Trump is a racist, a study published by the University of Pennsylvania found that contrary to the media narrative, white racial prejudice against African Americans and Hispanic Americans has declined since Trump's election.

Is he getting a sexual thrill out of the word?
His wife apparently told her girlfriends that when engaging in connubial bliss,
she doesn whisper sweet nothings in his ear....Elijah asked her to say "racist."
The latest I’m seeing is Dems all talking how it’s Jared Kushner’s fault Baltimore has rats.
So why is everyone demonizing rats? Rats have rights too.
Civil rights for rats.
as usual, spot on and eerily real
It still annoys me that you have to add “semi-satire” because one dunce couldn’t figure it out on his/her own. sheesh
ANYWAY .. Cummings has an extremely limited vocabulary. The 2 syllables of ‘racist’ are pushing it.
Cummings, slum dog millionaire
