Pelosi Backs Elijah Cummings & Blasts Trump’s “Racist” Twitter Attack


Nancy Pelosi called Trump’s tweet a racist attack against Rep. Elijah Cummings even though other politicians like Bernie Sanders and Barack Obama ripped Baltimore’s crime problem too.

President Trump called Cummings a “brutal bully” and said his congressional district was both “a disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess” and “the worst run and most dangerous [district] anywhere in the United States.”

If you disagree with a liberal, you are automatically labeled a racist.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., decried on Saturday what she described as a “racist” attack by President Trump on Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., — after the president called the chairman of the House Oversight Committee a “brutal bully” and said his Baltimore district was “more dangerous” than the southern border.

“Rep. Cummings is a champion in the Congress and the country for civil rights and economic justice, a beloved leader in Baltimore, and deeply valued colleague,” she tweeted. “We all reject racist attacks against him and support his steadfast leadership.”

Pelosi, who was born in Baltimore and is the daughter of a former mayor of the city, was responding to tweets by President Trump earlier Saturday in which he criticized Cummings, and called his district a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”

“Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous,” he tweeted Saturday morning. More

Baltimore is where even the police get robbed. It’s not racist to criticize a politician. Especially a corrupt crony politician. Both Nancy Pelosi and Elijah Cummings’ districts are horrible places. So I’m not surprised they are defending each other.
