Absolutely not a surprise that a group of liberal propagandist would try to equate a senator who has a city in his state run by democrat douchebags to deflect from the fact that Cummings failure.

Baltimore is a 3rd world hellhole according to Bernie.

Republican operatives are desperate to keep this MONSTER Trump in the Oval Office. Why? The evidence is overwhelming. It appears to this lopsided observer that Trump Supporters are, as Trump calls them, "poorly educated", uneducated and intellectually margin folks who grew up with a boatload of prejudices inculcated by their backwood, backward environs.

Some denominations of the 148 know divisions within the so-called "Christian Religion", believe that "Man is born a sinner".
I seriously doubt that supposition. However, it is a wonderful "recruiting tools", which all religions seem to possess.

We have no control over to whom we might be born to, but, we can control what kind of a person we want to be.

Choose, wisely, my friend.

Nice try John - nice try.

Here are some of the videos Klacik tweeted out:

"Not only are @RepCummings constituents NOT afraid of Trump, they are on board with his immigration policies. Residents are upset that illegal immigrants are taking the only jobs in the area. City contractors paying the illegals cash, leaving residents with no hope."

"He claims to care about children & their future, however in West Baltimore you will find abandoned homes on every block. Many filled with trash, rodents & homeless looking for shelter. Children live on these streets seen here. This district belongs to @RepCummings."

"Let's walk through a typical abandoned row house in West Baltimore. You will find at least one of these on every street. According to residents, there is an uptick in homeless thanks to the increase in drug inventory post 2015 riots. This is
@RepCummings district, more to come..."

"8 blocks of row houses in West Baltimore are currently using water through a system hooked to the fire hydrants. Please listen to Michelle, a life long resident, discuss the water & her message to city officials. This is @RepCummings
district."

"Residents constantly call the city to remove trash, no one shows up for months. Rats & roaches are a problem in almost every home. Illegal immigrants at the border live in better conditions than Americans in West Baltimore. This is @RepCummings district."

Supporters of Rep. Elijah Cummings shaded Donald Trump on Twitter. They pointed out that even though he said Baltimore was “disgusting rat and rodent infested," places represented by his GOP allies were actually in terrible condition.
President Trump’s critics think he has some nerve blasting Elijah Cummings and his Maryland district as “disgusting rat and rodent infested” considering some of the districts of his Republican apparently struggling with issues of homelessness, poverty and waste.

Critics took to social media to blast photos of neighborhoods in Republican-controlled districts in Ohio, Kentucky and California’s San Joaquin Valley and Fresno, according toNewsweek. These congressional districts are controlled by Trump supporters, including Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Rep. Devin Nunes’ district in California.

Further, some Democratic Twitter users pointed out that 8 out of 10 states with the lowest poverty levels in the United States are blue states, while 8 out of 9 states with the highest level of poverty across this great land of ours are red states, according to Census data.

But Trump remained undaunted in his attacks.

On Saturday, Trump continued to rant about Cummings’ district, which is comprised of much of Baltimore and outlying areas of Maryland, calling Cummings’ district “far worse and more dangerous” than the Southern Border with Mexico, adding “His district is considered the Worst in the USA.”

Trump’s allies at Fox News joined right in, sharing photos and video of seedy parts of Baltimore while ignoring other areas in the city and across Cummings’ district.

On Sunday, White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said that he would have been “fired” if he ever ran his former South Carolina congressional district the way Cummings is running his.

Cummings supporters fired back with their own images of poverty and crime, which show that there is much work to do in Republican districts without their need to vilify or point fingers elsewhere. Many of the photos taken and shared by Democrats were shot in rural and agricultural areas held by members of the GOP.

To read this John, one would think that the President attacked Cummings out of thin air. Cummings as chairman of the powerful oversight committee was screaming last week at DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan, falsely claiming that children being detained were sitting in "their own feces." It was disgraceful. If I was McAleenan I would have got up and fractured his jaw. The President hit back after his DHS Secretary was abused. He called attention to Cummings own district, which is a filthy dangerous city. Cummings is not used to criticism, hes been privileged.

Kentucky, represented in the Senate by Mitch McConnell, ranks 47th out of the 50 states for the highest poverty rate.

He has one of the poorest most backwards states in the country. What is his room to complain about someone else?

Good points. Trump is again being called a racist as he's about to execute a "white supremacist, trying to free a black rapper from a foreign jail, after presiding over historic levels of low unemployment among minorities, pursued prison reform, which directly affects many minorities and right now he is calling out the absent leaders of a city where minorities are the main victims of crime and blight.

Owsley County is a county located in the Eastern Coalfield region of the U.S. state of Kentucky. As of the 2010 census, the population was 4,755,[1] making it the second-least populous county in Kentucky. The county seat is Booneville.[2] The county was organized on January 23, 1843, from Clay, Estill, and Breathitt counties and named for William Owsley (1782–1862), the judge of the Kentucky Court of Appeals and Governor of Kentucky (1844–48).[3]

According to the 2010 census reports, Owsley County has the second-highest level of child poverty of any county in the United States.[4] In terms of income per household, the county is the poorest in the nation.[5] Between 1980 and 2014, the rate of death from cancer in the county increased by 45.6 percent, the largest such increase of any county in the United States.[6]
