Trump trash-talks ‘con man’ Al Sharpton as Baltimore feud drags on

President Trump, keeping up his  racially charged attacks against Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and the city of Baltimore , found a new target Monday in the Rev. Al Sharpton, the longtime civil rights activist and MSNBC talk show host  who had scheduled an event there .

“I have known Al for 25 years. Went to fights with him & Don King, always got along well,”  Trump tweeted . “He ‘loved Trump!’ He would ask me for favors often. Al is a con man, a troublemaker, always looking for a score. Just doing his thing. Must have intimidated Comcast/NBC. Hates Whites & Cops!”

Returning to his attacks on Cummings, who heads the House Oversight and Reform Committee and has been a strident critic of the administration’s border policies,  Trump continued : “Baltimore, under the leadership of Elijah Cummings, has the worst Crime Statistics in the Nation. 25 years of all talk, no action! So tired of listening to the same old Bull...Next, Reverend Al will show up to complain & protest. Nothing will get done for the people in need. Sad!”

Trump claimed that Sharpton “would always ask me to go to his events.”

“He would say, ‘it’s a personal favor to me,’”  the president continued . “Seldom, but sometimes, I would go. It was fine. He came to my office in T.T. during the presidential campaign to apologize for the way he was talking about me. Just a conman at work!”

Sharpton responded with a tweet showing Trump attending his National Action Network convention in 2006, “telling James Brown and Jesse Jackson why he respects my work.”



"Trump says I’m a troublemaker & con man,"  Sharpton added . "I do make trouble for bigots. If he really thought I was a con man he would want me in his cabinet."

Trump stirred outrage over the weekend when he attacked Cummings, calling him a “brutal bully” whose 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 Saturday, adding: “No human being would want to live there.”

Trump has used similar language to attack other African-American officials representing largely black districts, without regard to the actual conditions there. Cummings’ 7th district includes Johns Hopkins University and a mix of suburban, gentrifying, and rundown neighborhoods.

Cummings responded in tweets of his own.

“Mr. President, I go home to my district daily,”  the congressman replied . “Each morning, I wake up, and I go and fight for my neighbors. It is my constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the Executive Branch. But it is my moral duty to fight for my constituents.”

Cummings asked Trump to work with him on bipartisan legislation, such as a bill that would lower prescription drug prices.

Trump, though, seemed more interested in grouping together Cummings and the so-called “Squad” — four Democratic congresswomen of color who the president recently suggested should “go back” to their “broken and crime infested” countries.

“If the Democrats are going to defend the Radical Left ‘Squad’ and King Elijah’s Baltimore Fail, it will be a long road to 2020,”  the president tweeted Monday . “The good news for the Dems is that they have the Fake News Media in their pocket!”

Good one Mr. Sharpton!

If, in Donald Trump's jaded mind and limited imagination, the presence of some dilapidated houses makes Baltimore a shithole or that having homeless people makes San Francisco a shithole or that the discovery of an isolated illegal dump site in Los Angeles means that LA is a shithole too, then what real chances do the poor people of Flint have of ever getting clean drinking water?

Trump wants us to just give up on and abandon some of America's greatest cities ostensibly because the good American People who live in all those great American metropolitan areas do not support Trump nearly enthusiastically enough. They probably will not vote the way Trump wants them to. If it is so damn easy for Trump to write off great portions of the America People then do you really believe Trump or the damn gop gives one crap about you, your families or your home towns? WAKE UP PEOPLE! You've been had by a conman...

Is this the same Al Sharpton who perpetrated the Tawana Brawley hoax, instigated a riot against Jews, and still has failed to pay his taxes? If ever there's a conman, it's 'Reverend' Sharpton

Why, yes, Wally, it IS the very same race-baiting waste of human flesh!

Was it racist when PBS ran the documentary about Baltimore's rat problem?

https://www.baltimoresun.com/entertainment/movies/bs-fe-rat-film-20180226-story.html

How about when their own mayor complained about the Rats, Trash and smell in her own city?

https://www.baltimoresun.com/maryland/baltimore-city/bs-md-ci-pugh-smell-rats-20180912-story.html

Wow even their own paper is racist... .

Oh no, Bernie in 2015 tweeting racism about Baltimore?

Washington post racist?

This is the problem with the fake declarations of racism, even the NYT ran articles on the rat and trash problem in Baltimore, but well but Trump.

This is why these allegations fall of deaf ears. Google is your friend, Trump simply echoed the sediments of the liberal media but now he's the racist....lol

Why don't Republicans clean up these big cities ?

You infer it is only due to those damn Demz again, that they are failing.

WHY can't they just elect some Republicans and balance the budgets and make things all honky dory, you know, like they've done for the Federal Government and such, with tax cuts for the wealthiest while our deficit spirals out of control. You know , the one Trump said he'd have balanced by now, that somehow doubled or something, same thing, in Trump speak.

Mexico is almost finished paying for that wall Trump Lied about, aren't they, or is Trump attempting to bypass Congress to get a few Billion of OUR DAMN TAX DOLLARS to pay for the WALL, He SWORE MEXICO WAS PAYING FOR !

Hows that NEW REPLACEMENT for Obamacare coming along ?

The one that will cover preexisting, be cheaper, and so much better...?

Have those hordes made it to Canada yet ?  You know the ones that were suddenly invading our Southern Border, till the mid terms were over, and then they just disbanded in an orderly fashion i guess.

Did we ever get Melanias paperwork proving she did not enter and work her illegally back when she was doing soft porn on a no work visa ? Trump did say he would get to that, "next week" i believe was his quote.

Sure Glad Trump and the Repubs are balls to the wall thrawting off that Russian election meddling thingy, cause i'm thinking Trumpp hasn't even stated he believes it to be true yet, it's that 400lbs New Jersey Clown bringing down our electorial process, in ALL 50 States.

How about race relations, Trumpp's sure working hard on them, huh ?

.

I'm sure he'll be showing US all those taxes he promised, as he couldn't when they were under audit, but, are audits without an end ?

.

Paced to be the Hottest JULY EVER, but those silly scientists, WTF do they know ?

.

Aren't you impressed how his administarators audition right out in public for Trump, keeping everything so transparente, that we see right through their bull$hit, as they bash Mueller while claiming Trumpp is the victim

WTF is wrong with Trumpullthinskinned former tough law and order Patriotic Republicans...do some shedding, cause your not as shop as the hoes Trump usually keeps in hisn shed, though you guys still know how to use those shovels for digging..

.

Lil Kim's all in check, China now sells US paper plates, Putin is busy gettinng ready to orchestrate our next elections, and Don the Con is out rumbling with weird Al Sharpton over who knows what, cause deluge dental implants can't stop frothing racism out his yap to distract from having to actually run a country, say free of scandal like Obama, but we're a few thousand scandals and TEN THOUSAND LIES past that at this point in time.

So Tex, you round up all of your defences against my offensives and we'll chat later about how those Republicans and their Champion are being victimized again by all the down trodden.

I've got Rubicz cubes to braise and square, medallions of beef to ware,  succulent babyback ribs to spare, and i guess, whatever it is i don't kare to to tend to.

Keep up the good work, and your pants, won't feel so heavy, no matter how wet, cause hot and heavy wet pants might be what you fancy on the phoney graphic player, but if i were you, i'd opt for the suspenders.

They'll keep you suspended and alive if you remain animated, but life can sometimes pass one by, or buy ones past, or purchase ones future, or sell ones, as it all would be determined by the view one takes

on those yapping ole yentahs with some occasional wisdom

teeth yanked, all done with string

Even Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., currently a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, was shell-shocked by Baltimore's deplorable living conditions.

“Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation,” Sanders said during a 2015 visit reported by the Baltimore Sun. “You would think that you were in a Third World Country.”

as Elaja gives him wood, Epstein style, while all the while, has Trump concerned with how the Senator has hinted on and about, bringing Trump's inner gang out for the circular bang where he'll get a lot more than pie in his face,

Oh, I'm sorry I forget that on your posts only progressive liberal opinions matter.

 Do yourself a favor and research his activities during the Jenna 6 episode years back. I always thought what a real humanitarian he was when he staunchly defended the Jenna 6, even after they severely beat a hospitalized a white classmate who did nothing to deserve what he got. Sharpton absolutely refused to visit that young man in the hospital. You might learn something. So much for his views on tolerance. He should have visited that young man no matter what his ethnic background. Sharpton would not even talk to the kids parents or visit their home.you have good day now.
