Is Trump Right To Say “Elijah Cummings Has Failed Baltimore Badly”?

Is Trump Right To Say “Elijah Cummings Has Failed Baltimore Badly”? from ZeroHedge

The left, the mainstream media, and every virtue-signaling celebrity has quickly jumped on the bandwagon to support Rep. Elijah Cummings following President Trump’s “racist” tweets yesterday about the desperately terrible state of the congressman’s district.

However, despite tears and furore, none on the left is actually denying Trump’s facts – merely distracting with rage that #OrangeManBad. But Trump would not let it go, doubling down this morning:

And, some have come to Trump’s defense.

As expected, White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney argued on “Fox News Sunday” that President Trump’s use of “infested” to attack Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) has “nothing to do with race.”

MULVANEY: “Does anyone watching this program dispute the fact or the possibility that if Adam Schiff said the same thing about the border, that the president would be attacking Adam Schiff the exact same way today?”

WALLACE: “I don’t think he would be talking about his crime-investor, rodent-infested district.”

MULVANEY: “He very well could. It has zero to do with the fact that Adam’s Jewish and everything to do with the fact that Adam would just be wrong for saying that. This is what the president does. He fights — ”

WALLACE: “You’re completely comfortable with him saying that this is a rodent-infested district and no human being would want to live there? You’re comfortable with that personally?”

MULVANEY: “Have you seen some of the pictures on the Internet? Just this morning from the conditions in Baltimore?”

WALLACE: “You can do that in any inner city in America. And you could argue why doesn’t the president or something to stop it?”

MULVANEY: “The richest estate in the nation has abject poverty like that. A state, by the way, dominated for generations by Democrats. I think it’s fair to have that conversation.

But, Baltimore resident (and awkwardly African American) Michelle speaks out…

Trump is not racist.. I’m glad he put [Cummings] on blast. The rats just didn’t come. These houses just didn’t get torn down, they’ve been like this”

“What he said was definitely true. [Cummings] hasn’t done anything for us”

“[Cummings is] worried more about [caring for illegal aliens at the border] than his own people”

Sounds racist to us! Don’t believe Michelle?
