While Democrats are losing their minds over the fact that Trump called out House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md. over the horrific conditions in Baltimore the fact is that Cummings slammed his city as “drug-infested” and called the residents “walking zombies” in a recently dug up video.
The video, tweeted by the president on Wednesday, showed Cummings lamenting the city’s scourge of drugs while speaking during what appeared to be a congressional hearing, Fox reports.
“This morning, I left my community of Baltimore — a drug-infested area where a lot of the drugs we are talking about today have already taken the lives of so many children,” he said. “The same children that I watched 14 or 15 years ago as they grew up, now walking around like zombies.”
Trump originally called Baltimore a “rat and rodent infested mess” which Democrats called RACIST.
LMAO! WHAT IN THE HELL IS RACIST ABOUT THAT?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called Trump’s tweets “racist,” although it’s unclear what exactly she was referring to in the tweets.
The president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., responded to the old footage by asking whether Cummings himself was racist.
Obviously racist… Right? Those are the rules! https://t.co/W3eX54ellK— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) July 31, 2019
“Obviously racist… Right? Those are the rules!” he tweeted alongside the video.
Trump has defended himself by claiming that he was “stating plainly what most people already know.” “Elijah Cummings has done a terrible job for the people of his district, and of Baltimore itself. Dems always play the race card when they are unable to win with facts. Shame!” he said over the weekend.
The dems were also for securing our border until Obama came into the picture and have gone crazy since Trump was elected.
So I guess Cummings is a racist in the aftermath of his comments of his city.
What a freaking mess.
