Given how often Democrats and the media keep accusing President Trump of being a racist, I’m thinking the internal polling shows that his favorability among blacks must be on the rise.
And that is one thing the Democrats cannot afford.
Using his powerful Twitter account, yesterday the President shined a bright spotlight on the plight of West Baltimore and the failure of Democrat governance.
….As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 27, 2019
Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States. No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 27, 2019
And, boy howdy, are the Democrats super upset.
Are they upset over the plight of West Baltimore?
Are they upset with the piles of garbage and the infestation of rats?
Are they upset that fellow Americans are living in third world hell-hole conditions?
Are they upset about the corruption?
No, what has them clutching their pearls and well-I-nevering has nothing to do with the very issues President Trump highlighted.
Instead, they’re upset because Elijah Cummings – an “honorable” man and the “conscience of the party” — is being attacked by that big, fat racist/White Supremacist/Nazi Trump.
Meanwhile, a weepy “journalist” on CNN delivered an Oscar-worthy performance as he tearfully accused President Trump of calling black and brown people “infestations.”
I’m fairly certain Trump was referring to the infestation of rats plaguing black and brown people living in West Baltimore, but you do you.
The rapid deployment of the “Trump is a racist” talking point tells me the internal polling numbers have the Democrats worried.
I’ve said before that if the Democrats can’t secure 90-95% of the black vote, they are in trouble.
President Trump is calling attention to the living conditions in one of the most crime-ridden cities in the country. And he’s asking a very valid question: what has Elijah Cummings done for you?
Sure, Cummings has done a lot for himself and for his wife. But what concrete improvements has he made to the lives of his own constituents?
Democrats are furious because they know the answer isn’t a positive one.
It is so sad to see @VictorBlackwell & @CNN turn the light currently shining on #WestBaltimore into a race issue. This could result in a positive change. @RepCummings could help get his district in order. Listen to one of his constituents explain the "rats & rodents" problem. pic.twitter.com/LTG8AnT27x— Kimberly Klacik (@kimKBaltimore) July 27, 2019
While Elijah Cummings has gotten fat and happy living off the taxpayers, his constituents remain stuck in a high crime, garbage and rat-infested area of Baltimore.
President Trump believes that black Americans deserve better than generational poverty, bad schools and incompetent government.
And in two and a half years, he has done far more for blacks living in Democrat-run cities than Elijah Cummings has accomplished in his thirty-plus years in office.
Is the internal polling telling Democrats the same thing?
I’m thinking it is.
I’m thinking internal polling shows that blacks are beginning to realize just how much this President is actually doing compared to just how little their Democrat leaders have done.
If the only response Democrats have to the President calling attention to this plight is to accuse him of being a racist, let’s just say my spider sense is tingling.
Democrats have neglected blacks for decades. They could afford to, couldn’t they? Once they secured large majorities of their votes, they didn’t need them anymore.
But that neglect has taken its toll.
And that’s the fundamental difference between the Democrats and President Trump.
He isn’t neglecting them. Instead, he is fighting to end this cycle. By stopping the flow of illegals who take their jobs and depress their wages. By stripping regulations that impede businesses from hiring. And it’s working.
Black unemployment is the lowest on record.
You think blacks don’t notice that?
Internal polling must be bleak if the Democrats’ only response is to accuse President Trump of racism for the crime of calling attention to the horrible conditions within Democrat-run cities.
Unlike the Democrats, this wholesale neglect bothers the hell out of Donald Trump. This is the greatest nation in the world. No American should be living in squalor. No Americans should be forced to run hoses from fire hydrants in order to get water into their homes. No Americans should be up to their tits in garbage and vermin.
While all this squalor goes unnoticed, Elijah Cummings has seen his and his wife’s own fortunes increase.
In fact, yesterday as the Democrats howled “RACIST!” at President Trump, Elijah Cummings was with Nancy Pelosi dining at a 5-star restaurant in Venice, Italy.
.@SpeakerPelosi, you’re tweeting this while you and @RepCummings are in Italy staying at 5-star hotels, eating in 5-star restaurants, as the majority of his district lives below the poverty level thanks to decades of Dem governance.— John Cardillo (@johncardillo) July 28, 2019
Do you even see the irony? https://t.co/fXyUhDCnOv
Meanwhile, the news media runs defense for Cummings and pretends that everything in Baltimore is tickety-boo.
When Baltimore Republican Kimberly Klacik began posting these videos of the squalor in Baltimore, the news media sprang into action – not to follow up on her videos, but to attack her.
It’s amazing what most of the news media has become. They are the shock troops of the Democrat Party, ready to activate the moment a Democrat needs defending or cover fire. They are eager to destroy the citizens who dare to question their preferred politicians. https://t.co/SKIGkObfOP— Matt Wolking (@MattWolking) July 27, 2019
But of course they are. President Trump is tweeting out her videos.
You think folks living in these poverty-stricken, crime-ridden, garbage-laden areas don’t notice that it is the President of the United States calling attention to what’s happening?
But rather than actually act to improve the lives of those in places like West Baltimore, the Democrat Party circles the wagons to protect Elijah Cummings — the very politician who has done nothing for those Americans.
Democrats don’t have time to improve their lives. They’re far too busy trying to stop black Americans from abandoning the Democrat Party. And the only arrow in their quiver is to accuse President Trump of being a racist.
Parts of Baltimore are severely struggling and in need of assistance. Posting soliloquys on how everything is just dandy is absurd and frankly stupid. That goes for everyone looking to virtue signal once again.— Erielle Davidson (@politicalelle) July 27, 2019
The media will happily play along because they don’t give a rat’s ass about the living conditions of those the Democrat Party neglects.
Plus, Orange Man Bad.
A lot of DC "journalists" clutching their pearls over what @realDonaldTrump tweeted about Baltimore. Baltimore is less than an hour away from DC. They could drive there & see it for themselves. They won't because they know how bad it is, they just don't want you to know…— Derek Hunter (@derekahunter) July 28, 2019
And that right there is why the Democrats and the media hate President Trump’s tweets.
His tweets go over the heads of the media directly to the people. And he is saying the quiet parts out loud – the very things Democrats (and the media) want hidden.
If I had to guess, I’d say Democrats know that President Trump’s message is resonating. And their internal polling is showing that. But they’re just too stupid to know how to handle the news.
Instead of taking proactive steps to improve the lives of black Americans, they choose instead to demagogue while making wild promises of “free” stuff and “reparations.”
And of course they resort to the RACIST! card against President Trump while hoping that black voters don’t notice just how little the Democrats have actually done for them.
One final note.
Remember that Trump tweet from 2012 that I posted a couple weeks ago?
My twitter has become so powerful that I can actually make my enemies tell the truth.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 17, 2012
We’re seeing it play out again, aren’t we?
By pushing Elijah Cummings for the sorry conditions in his district, President Trump got the Democrats to admit the ugly truth.
They don’t care about those conditions one bit. And they don’t care about the people who have to live there. Instead, they expend their energy white knighting for the incompetent Democrat Congressman who’s turned a blind eye to this decay for decades.
