Over the weekend, President Trump pointed out how Rep. Elijah Cummings has done little to improve the conditions in Baltimore, describing them as “dangerous,” “filthy” and “infested.” Why would he use such terms? Simple:
Baltimore’s murder rate is among the country’s highest. The city also struggles to provide basic sanitation services and has one of the largest rat populations in America. When Sen. Bernie Sanders drew attention to those problems, he was applauded. When Trump did so?
He was called a racist.
CNN anchor and Baltimore native Victor Blackwell broke down in tears as he condemned the president's comments, claiming that "when he tweets about infestation, it's about black and brown people." CNN contributor April Ryan also took issue with the term. But despite their outrage, the president wasn't referring to any minority group as an infestation. I can tell you who did, though.

Perhaps this isn't surprising. After all, Tlaib and fellow "Squad" member Ilhan Omar sponsored a bill comparing Israel to Nazi Germany. What's more, Tlaib has written articles for a publication owned by Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam. Something else that isn't surprising? That the mainstream media would let her get away with it. Because given how busy they are making false allegations against Trump, I doubt they'd mention the real bigotry among their friends.
