Over the weekend, President Trump tweeted out some criticisms of Rep. Elijah Cummings, who happens to be part African-American and a democrat from Maryland, who represents a district in Baltimore.
These tweets were a response to Cummings’ comments which were critical of the conditions at border processing centers. Cummings last week had questioned crowded border conditions and criticized the lack of basic humanitarian needs such as sanitation being met.
“Cummings sarcastically asked Kevin McAleenan, the acting head of Homeland Security, ‘You feel like you’re doing a great job, right?’ according to Sommer Brokaw and Allen Cone of UPI. ‘What does that mean when a child is sitting in their own feces, can’t take a shower, come on man, what’s that about? None of us would have our children in that position. They are human beings.’”
What a pompous ass. What a disingenuous, pompous ass.
Oh, oh…, I guess that makes me a racist…, because you can’t question the integrity of an African-American politician you know…, unless they happen to be conservative that is!
You say “None of us would have our children in that position.” Have you taken a look around your district in the last twenty years Congressman Cummings?
Many children in your district live in conditions much worse that the conditions you dreamed up, regarding our border processing centers, Mr. Cummings.
Why haven’t these children, these U.S. citizens, which you represent in your district, gotten the same level of your concern as have these illegal immigrants halfway across the country?
‘“I want to concentrate on these children and I want to make sure that they are okay,’ he continued. ‘I said it before, and I’ll say it again. It’s not the deed that you do to a child. It’s the memory.’”
Oh…, such eloquent words, Mr. Cummings. You’re such a gifted orator! Which one of your staffers fed you that line of crap?
“He added that the Trump administration was responsible for separating thousands of migrant children, some as young as 2, from their parents.”
‘“It is the Trump administration’s own policies that are causing these problems,’ he said. ‘They all increased the number of people being held and unnecessarily detained … The damage the Trump administration has inflicted and is continuing to inflict will affect these children for the rest of their lives.’”
No, it’s not the Trump Administration’s own policies, Mr. Cummings. The Trump Administration is just following the laws established by you and your friend in Congress, Mr. Cummings.
If you and your friends in Congress had done its job anytime over the last twenty years or so, these situations at our southern border would not even be an issue now.
‘“I’m talking about human beings,’ Cummings said. ‘I’m not talking about people that come from, as The President said, shitholes. These are human beings. Human beings just trying to live a better life.’”
Oh, so none of these people come from your district in Baltimore, Mr. Cummings?
Sorry, but it was just too hard to let that one slip by!
People in your district aren’t “human beings?”
People in your district aren’t “trying to live a better life?”
And it was Senator Bernie Sanders who described your district as being akin to a “third world country.”
According to David Montanaro of Fox News, “[President] Trump was heavily criticized over the weekend after he branded Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., a “brutal bully” for his treatment of Border Patrol officials at committee hearings — and described Cummings’ district as “far worse and more dangerous” than the southern border.’”
“Radio host Rush Limbaugh said, “President Trump is speaking the absolute truth about problems in the city of Baltimore under Democrat-led administrations.’”
‘“What he’s saying here is the absolute truth, but it’s not supposed to be said about any place where the Democrats are in charge,’ he said Monday on Fox & Friends.’”
‘“Cumming[s’] District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place,’ Trump tweeted, before calling for an investigation into why Baltimore received so much federal funding.”
Ya…, let’s open up an investigation checking into what has happened to all of those hundreds of millions of dollars earmarked for Elijah Cummings’ district in Baltimore!
From what I’ve seen, Mr. Cummings seems to be a big fan of investigations!
“Limbaugh added, ‘It’s about time somebody pushed back against the human misery caused by Democrat leadership.’”
“Cummings, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, responded Sunday by declaring he has ‘no doubt that Trump is racist.’”
Really, Mr. Cummings?
Why can you be critical of him, and that’s not racist, but as soon he’s critical of you that’s considered racist?
This seems to be a typical case of someone being able to “dish it out,” but not being able to take it himself.
Remember…, you started this Mr. Cummings.
“Limbaugh continued by adding, ‘The Democrats get to claim they are compassionate and that they care, but they never do anything that actually improves the quality of the lives of their constituents. Their constituents are as unhappy today as they were 50 years ago.’”
The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is of course co-conspirators in this “racist” charade which has been perpetrated on the American people.
Hopefully our African-American friends will increasingly wake up to this fact and run these frauds right out of town and right out of Congress!
