Democrats have recently been losing their minds over President Trump calling out House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings over the pitiful shape of Baltimore which is Cummings district.
They even called President Trump racist for saying such things (no surprise there).
But now an old video has resurfaced of Cumming saying the exact same things President Trump has been saying and he’s furious about it!
“This morning, I left my community of Baltimore — a drug-infested area where a lot of the drugs we are talking about today have already taken the lives of so many children,” he said. “The same children that I watched 14 or 15 years ago as they grew up, now walking around like zombies.”
Fox News reports,
House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., previously referred to his community of Baltimore as a “drug-infested” area, using a term that President Trump included in a tweet widely panned as a racist attack on the city.
The video, tweeted by the president on Wednesday, showed Cummings lamenting the city’s scourge of drugs while speaking during what appeared to be a congressional hearing.
Trump originally called Baltimore a “rat and rodent infested mess,” apparently conjuring allusions to racism for some media outlets. CNN’s Erin Burnett, for example, accused Trump of feeding his base’s “basest tendencies” by using those words to describe a majority-African American city.
Donald Trump Jr. made sure to call him out on his hypocrisy.
President Trump was attacked for saying the same things Cummings said, and it has nothing to do with race whatsoever. He’s attacked white liberals just the same if not worse honestly.
Truly the President seems to be the only person who actually is treating colored and white liberals equally. Everyone else is afraid to say anything about a person of color for fear of being labeled a racist.
Obviously racist… Right? Those are the rules! https://t.co/W3eX54ellK
