Is Donald Trump blessed with the stupidest enemies a president could ever hope for? Or, does he simply have an uncanny ability to get his enemies to repeatedly beclown themselves by defending the indefensible? It’s probably a little bit of both.
The latest most serious crisis ever which will surely be Trump’s undoing is his Twitter war with Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) over the rat-infested rathole of rat-ness that is Cummings’ home district. As a black Democrat, Cummings is supposed to be impervious to all criticism under the current woke thinking of Democrat politics. That just doesn’t cut it with President Trump, who is all about results.
Rat King Cummings brought Trump’s ire on himself. During a House Oversight Committee hearing last week, Cummings spread vicious lies about President Trump, America’s Border Patrol agents and the overcrowded ICE detention facilities. Cummings lambasted the Border Patrol chief with claims that “kidnapped” illegal alien brats are “sleeping in their own feces” in the ICE “concentration camps.”
Trump responded with a Twitter storm about how a) Cummings is a freakin’ liar, and b) the biggest city in Cummings’ district is not looking so good:
“Cummings’ District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could clean up this very dangerous & filthy place.”
Trump continued, “No human being would want to live there.”
And with that, Trump had baited the trap with a nice piece of cheese! He also shattered the Overton Window once again and shifted it waaaay over to the right.
The media conniption fit was immediate – right on cue. And no one was more desperately spinning on behalf of Elijah Cummings than the Trump-hating sissy-boy Chris Wallace of Fox news. In his never-ending quest to make Shepard Smith look like the second-most anti-Trump Fox News personality, Chris Wallace really went to bat for Cummings.
Wallace insisted to White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney that President said the people of Baltimore are not human.
Yeah, you really nailed it, Chris. Trump was calling the people vermin, not the actual vermin infesting the streets of Baltimore. He couldn’t possibly have meant that the humans in Baltimore deserve better than their Democrat “leaders” have given them.
Other media hacks sneeringly pointed out that per capita income Cummings’ district is much higher than in most other parts of the country. Yeah… that’s the point.
Urban, illegal alien-infested sanctuary cities had their housing costs driven through the roof due to supply and demand. That in turn creates an extra-large homeless population in these cities. When you have too many hobos dropping their trousers and spreading their diversity on city sidewalks – you get rats.
This was a beautiful political move by Trump. Democrats and the fake news media are now openly lying about Elijah Cummings’ district: It’s not rat-infested. Trump is just a racist Nazi!
Meanwhile, Twitter is riddled with photographs from Baltimore residents showing that in fact, Trump is correct, and Baltimore is full of stinking filthy rats, overflowing garbage piles, feces on the sidewalks and more. No human being would want to live there.
Is Trump wrong about Baltimore and the rat situation? Actually, no.
Orkin, the extermination business, puts out a top ten list of the “rattiest” cities in America every year. Baltimore is number 9.
Chicago, at number 1, is the rattiest city in America, which kind of surprised me. I figured the polar vortex temperatures there would make it less ratty, but what do I know?
Los Angeles is the second-rattiest city in America, which didn’t surprise me; I saw a rat in a grocery store there last year. I had never even seen a rat in real life before visiting LA. It was fascinating. He had big, floppy rat ears like that cartoon rat in the kids’ movie ‘Ratatouille.’ Just runnin’ down the condiment aisle.
New York and Washington, DC are the third- and fourth-rattiest cities in America. Nancy Pelosi’s home city of San Francisco clocks in at number 5 – no surprise there. San Francisco is so gross these days that no one believes me when I describe it to people. If you drive around for five minutes in San Francisco with your windows rolled down, you’ll need to brush your teeth to get rid of the ‘hobo stank’ in the air. Alaskan villages that don’t have any flush toilets in 2019 are cleaner than Pelosi’s city.
Detroit, Philadelphia and Cleveland are numbers 6, 7 and 8 on the rattiest cities in America list. Baltimore is number 9 and Denver, which legalized street pooping for illegal aliens two years ago, now clocks in at number 10.
All of these rat-infested rathole cities have the same thing in common: They have been run by Democrat mayors and Democrat city councils for years. New York actually cleaned up nicely in the 1990s under Republican mayor Rudy Giuliani, but some of the other cities have been run by Democrats since the 1920s.
As marvelous as the Trump Economic Miracle has been for America, there are still pockets where people are struggling in misery. Baltimore is one of them. And Trump has now brilliantly forced the Democrats to rush in and own the urban decay that they have caused. Please tell us more about Russian collusion as your home district continues to slide further into ‘Third World’ slum status, oh wizened elder Elijah Cummings.
Imagine how voters in places like Baltimore must feel about this situation. They see the rest of America thriving and news reports about how the economy is going like gangbusters. The fake news media tries to blame Trump’s “racism” for the ratty conditions in their city – but they know the rats showed up years ago, long before Trump came on the scene.
Trump is offering a choice to everyone: You can partake in the Trump Economic Miracle by voting for Republican candidates down-ballot: Republicans in the House, the Senate, and in your local mayor and city council races. Or, you can continue to cast your lot with the Democrats and watch as your city decays and is overrun by rats.
