Democrats Don't Care About Baltimore

Last weekend, the president got bored and decided to see if he could make Democrats defend one of the most dangerous, mismanaged places in the country. And of course, he could. It wasn't hard. He just sent a flurry of tweets criticizing the city of Baltimore and Rep. Elijah Cummings. President Donald Trump called Baltimore a "disgusting, rat and rodent invested" hellhole, a "corrupt mess" that "no human being" would want to live in. A lot of people who've never been to Baltimore claimed to be deeply offended by those remarks. One person who seemed to agree with them was former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh. Just last year, she said things were so bad you could "smell the rotting rats."

The mayor did not explain why she hadn't cleaned things up. That footage of her remarks got almost no attention when it ran on a local news station. Neither did the recent story about Baltimore's deputy policy commissioner getting robbed at gunpoint by four thugs while out to dinner with his wife. People weren't talking about that over dinner in Georgetown this weekend. If there's one thing virtually everyone in Washington aggressively doesn't care about, it's Baltimore. It's 40 miles and an entire world away. You could live your whole life in D.C. and never visit or think about Baltimore.

I live north of the SHITHOLE and I have no desire to go. When you see all the garbage floating in the inner harbor. That was it for me. Especially with all the restaurant's there. Who in their right mind would eat at ANY of them??

All the so called leaders came out to bash Trump but offer NOTHING to help the citizens.

The people in Baltimore are responsible for the condition of the city that they reside.

Don't blame anyone else!!!!!

Why should Democrats care about cleaning up Baltimore? Baltimore is a perfect setup for a scam for embezzling tax dollars from all government jurisdictions. Where is the "forensic audit"?
