Beto, Pelosi & Warren respond as expected to Trump’s Baltimore comments: ‘He’s a racist’

Apparently, being a Democrat running for president means you can call someone a racist and avoid having to deal with the actual underlying problem.

On Saturday morning, President Trump went after Rep. Elijah Cummings by calling out his stance on the situation on our southern border by saying Cummings should be more concerned about his own district in Baltimore, Maryland.

Of course, the media and those on the left immediately jumped on Trump’s use of “rat and rodent infested” as racist because Cummings is an African American and a majority of African Americans live in his district.

Trump’s comments were quickly denounced by several prominent liberal politicians and even a journalist on CNN used platform to call out the president.

While the media and liberal politicians got their panties in a bunch over Trump’s comments once again, they seem to be forgetting what far-left favorite Bernie Sanders said about Baltimore in 2015.

Sanders, after touring the city, hoping to secure their votes as he mounted his first run for president, said:

“Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation. You would think that you were in a Third World country.”

Sanders also sent out this Tweet in 2016 about the city.

When it comes to Twitter, Trump is his own worst enemy, often times creating his own problems.

But let’s be honest here, what Trump said wasn’t racist. It wasn’t racist when Bernie Sanders said it in 2015 and 2016 and it isn’t now. What it is is nothing more than Democratic politicians and the media’s poor attempt to keep  the “Trump is a racist” narrative alive because Cummings is black, Trump is white and majority of the residents in that particular neighborhood are black as well.
