Better to have a few rats than to be one

This is a president who will happily debase himself at the slightest provocation. And given Mr. Cummings’ criticisms of U.S. border policy, the various investigations he has launched as chairman of the House Oversight Committee, his willingness to call Mr. Trump a racist for his recent attacks on the freshmen congresswomen, and the fact that “Fox & Friends” had recently aired a segment critical of the city, slamming Baltimore must have been irresistible in a Pavlovian way. Fox News rang the bell, the president salivated and his thumbs moved across his cell phone into action.

... — we would tell the most dishonest man to ever occupy the Oval Office, the mocker of war heroes, the gleeful grabber of women’s private parts, the serial bankrupter of businesses, the useful idiot of Vladimir Putin and the guy who insisted there are “good people” among murderous neo-Nazis that he’s still not fooling most Americans into believing he’s even slightly competent in his current post.

Baltimore Sun sets Donald Trump on fire

Bill Palmer | 11:30 pm EDT July 27, 2019
Palmer Report » Analysis

On Saturday morning, Donald Trump staged one of his most overtly racist and patently offensive Twitter tirades to date, lambasting Congressman Elijah Cummings and his hometown of Baltimore. Trump was clearly trying to distract from the fact that House Democrats initiated an impeachment inquiry against him the day before, but – as has increasingly been the case of late – Trump took things to a level beyond the pale.


Donald Trump insisted that Baltimore was a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” and a “very dangerous & filthy place.” Trump immediately faced widespread pushback on the matter, but instead of checking himself or simply moving on, he doubled down by continuing to rant about Cummings and Baltimore as the day went on. By the time it was over, the Editorial Board of the Baltimore Sun newspaper had finally had enough, and decided to figuratively set Trump on fire.

Here’s the most salient paragraph from the op-ed: “It’s not hard to see what’s going on here. [Elijah Cummings] has been a thorn in this president’s side, and Mr. Trump sees attacking African American members of Congress as good politics, as it both warms the cockles of the white supremacists who love him and causes so many of the thoughtful people who don’t to scream. President Trump bad-mouthed Baltimore in order to make a point that the border camps are “clean, efficient & well run,” which, of course, they are not — unless you are fine with all the overcrowding, squalor, cages and deprivation to be found in what the Department of Homeland Security’s own inspector-general recently called ‘a ticking time bomb.'”


Meanwhile, Donald Trump has continued to spend the night digging himself a deeper hole. Trump was still attacking Elijah Cummings as late as 10pm, even as he thanked one of his deranged sycophants after another for defending his racist tirade. You can read the entire Baltimore Sun takedown of Trump here.
