Democrats and Media Have Been Saying The Same Thing About Baltimore As Trump Did For Years
The Democrats have been having a conniption fit all this past week over the President’s remarks over the sad condition Baltimore is in.
President Trump mentions how rat-infested the city is and how Representative Elijah Cummings has failed his district in taking care of the city. All of this has sent the Democrats into a tizzy.
Here’s the thing, the Democrats and the media have been saying this for years! Now they’re calling Trump a racist because he called someone out for letting Baltimore get in such bad shape?
Trump continued to fight back against the claims of racism tweeting,
“There is nothing racist in stating plainly what most people already know, that Elijah Cummings has done a terrible job for the people of his district, and of Baltimore itself. Dems always play the race card when they are unable to win with facts. Shame!”

But a documentary film was actually made not too long ago about how terrible the rat population is in Baltimore. Seriously though, how bad must it be that someone makes a documentary about it?
The Baltimore Sun reported,
It started with a rat trapped inside Theo Anthony’s outdoor trash can.
“Absolutely, what you see is really how it came about,” the Baltimore-based filmmaker says of his first documentary feature, “Rat Film,” which opens Friday in Baltimore, New York and Chicago. “I had come home one night, and I heard this sound in my trash can. So I whipped out my cellphone and just started filming.”
That brief footage, of the trapped rat desperately trying to jump a few inches higher than conventional wisdom says a rat should be able to jump, kicks off an 80-minute rumination on Baltimore’s decades-long battle against its unwelcome rodent population, and some disturbing parallels Anthony discovered with the ways city leaders have tried to deal with various urban situations.
Also, how about this video of Democratic Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh saying that you can “smell the rats”:
