"President Donald Trump shifted his attacks Sunday from Rep. Elijah Cummings for failing Baltimore to Speaker Nancy Pelosi for failing San Francisco.

'Speaking of failing badly, has anyone seen what is happening to Nancy Pelosi's district in San Francisco.' Trump wrote on Twitter. 'It is not even recognizable lately. Something must be done before it is too late...'"

A: That's a totally misleading headline that in no way relates to the link you provided.

B: Breitshart isn't news.

C: The only response that really matters is from the Baltimore Sun
Quote:
In case anyone missed it, the president of the United States had some choice words to describe Maryland’s 7th congressional district on Saturday morning. Here are the key phrases: “no human being would want to live there,” it is a “very dangerous & filthy place,” “Worst in the USA” and, our personal favorite: It is a “rat and rodent infested mess.” He wasn’t really speaking of the 7th as a whole. He failed to mention Ellicott City, for example, or Baldwin or Monkton or Prettyboy, all of which are contained in the sprawling yet oddly-shaped district that runs from western Howard County to southern Harford County. No, Donald Trump’s wrath was directed at Baltimore and specifically at Rep. Elijah Cummings, the 68-year-old son of a former South Carolina sharecropper who has represented the district in the U.S. House of Representatives since 1996.

It’s not hard to see what’s going on here. The congressman has been a thorn in this president’s side, and Mr. Trump sees attacking African American members of Congress as good politics, as it both warms the cockles of the white supremacists who love him and causes so many of the thoughtful people who don’t to scream. President Trump bad-mouthed Baltimore in order to make a point that the border camps are “clean, efficient & well run," which, of course, they are not — unless you are fine with all the overcrowding, squalor, cages and deprivation to be found in what the Department of Homeland Security’s own inspector-general recently called “a ticking time bomb."

In pointing to the 7th, the president wasn’t hoping his supporters would recognize landmarks like Johns Hopkins Hospital, perhaps the nation’s leading medical center. He wasn’t conjuring images of the U.S. Social Security Administration, where they write the checks that so many retired and disabled Americans depend upon. It wasn’t about the beauty of the Inner Harbor or the proud history of Fort McHenry. And it surely wasn’t about the economic standing of a district where the median income is actually above the national average. No, he was returning to an old standby of attacking an African American lawmaker from a majority black district on the most emotional and bigoted of arguments. It was only surprising that there wasn’t room for a few classic phrases like “you people” or “welfare queens” or “crime-ridden ghettos” or a suggestion that the congressman “go back” to where he came from.

This is a president who will happily debase himself at the slightest provocation. And given Mr. Cummings’ criticisms of U.S. border policy, the various investigations he has launched as chairman of the House Oversight Committee, his willingness to call Mr. Trump a racist for his recent attacks on the freshmen congresswomen, and the fact that “Fox & Friends” had recently aired a segment critical of the city, slamming Baltimore must have been irresistible in a Pavlovian way. Fox News rang the bell, the president salivated and his thumbs moved across his cell phone into action.

As heartening as it has been to witness public figures rise to Charm City’s defense on Saturday, from native daughter House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young, we would above all remind Mr. Trump that the 7th District, Baltimore included, is part of the United States that he is supposedly governing. The White House has far more power to effect change in this city, for good or ill, than any single member of Congress including Mr. Cummings. If there are problems here, rodents included, they are as much his responsibility as anyone’s, perhaps more because he holds the most powerful office in the land.

Finally, while we would not sink to name-calling in the Trumpian manner — or ruefully point out that he failed to spell the congressman’s name correctly (it’s Cummings, not Cumming) — we would tell the most dishonest man to ever occupy the Oval Office, the mocker of war heroes, the gleeful grabber of women’s private parts, the serial bankrupter of businesses, the useful idiot of Vladimir Putin and the guy who insisted there are “good people” among murderous neo-Nazis that he’s still not fooling most Americans into believing he’s even slightly competent in his current post. Or that he possesses a scintilla of integrity. Better to have some vermin living in your neighborhood than to be one.

Wouldn't calling it Breitbarf be better than Breitshart?


Asking for a friend. :wink:

I agree but it's the headline the Vancouver Province sent to the CKA software. When I post anything other than that I get whimpers from whiners. I find I can't win either way so I'm caring less and less. Wanna whine? Whine.

I could debate that by comparing it to some of the crap you think is news and you'd find by any objective criteria Breitbart is the 'moreso' as far relaying of facts goes.

But it doesn't matter. The news part is at the link is where the headline goes on the news page. Links in the comments go to background or connected stories and appear on a take or leave it basis.

BTW, I'm with you. I actually prefer the headline that's at the Vancouver Province main site:

Trump tells 'brutal bully' black critic from Baltimore to clean up 'disgusting, rat and rodent infested' district

2nd worst actually. St Louis is the worst place in the USA.
In the annual list of the 50 Most Dangerous Cities in the World, Baltimore ranks 21st and has been on the list for YEARS. St Louis ranks 13th. There are places in Mexico that tourists just won't go to that are lower down on the list than either St Louis or Baltimore.

There have been some improvements. Both Detroit and new Orleans have improved their positions on the list while Oakland no longer makes the list. However both St Louis and Baltimore's position on the list has gotten worse.

The bullshit outrage at Trump for calling out the rats in Baltimore (DemocRATS and the nicer kind, too) is just that: BULLSHIT.

The rat problem in Baltimore is nothing new and it's frankly years and years old.

This is from three years ago:



This is from FIVE years ago:

You know it's got way beyond politics.
That the President of the USA is a lying, vindictive, petty, racist narcissist with no sense of shame whatsoever, who kisses dictator's asses and backstabs allies, breaks treaties and has declared war on the environment is disgusting.
A man who's dragged his country from world leader to Most Loathed nation in the world, and yet here are those with even lower standards supporting his every move. XD

Remember when Obama was in the news every day, for his racist tweets and insistence on dividing the US based on racial lines?

No, me either.

Trumps Tweets regarding Baltimore are only Racist in the minds of the Deranged Violent Left.

Who? You mean the lightbringer? Wouldn't that have been against the law for one of the has-been news media to notice that? Seemed like it.

That's odd, I didn't know Ms Occasional Cortex was president.

This isn’t about the amount of rats. Rats are everywhere from the nastiest sewer to the most pristine cities. Trumps resort has been cited a few dozen times I think for a mice problem too.

It’s about the language. And you know it. To call a majority black district rat infested is to insinuate in no uncertain terms that the blacks are responsible for the problem and aren’t doing anything about that.

Never mind the third world areas of Mississippi or Alabama, or the opioid ravaged counties of Appalachia. You’ll never hear Trump talk about those areas in the ways he talked about Baltimore. And just imagine if a democrat did. The secret service would have to protect him or her 24/7 after.
