The mainstream media worships the ground that former President Obama walked on.
No matter what he did while in office, they would praise him, while they do the opposite for President Trump.
But one thing that Obama said just came back to hand Trump a huge win.
President Donald Trump, like almost every day of his presidency, recently made comments that infuriated the entire mainstream media.
No matter what he says, they will attack him and claim that his comments are either lies or racist.
In this case, he went after Rep. Elijah Cummings, who represents Baltimore, MD.
Trump pointed out the quality of life in the district Cummings represents in a harsh tweet:
“Cumming[’s] 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.”
Immediately following the tweet, the mainstream media went after Trump viciously, claiming that his claim is racist.
Even Fox News went after him, with host Chris Wallace insinuating that when he says “rat and rodent infested,” he is referring to the predominantly African American population.
This is despite the fact that anybody familiar with the inner city of Baltimore knows how bad the rat and rodent problem truly is.
Former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh was even overheard during a 2018 tour of the city declaring that you can “smell the rats,” adding that they should just tear down the entire block she was viewing.
Many of the spots in the city truly are in third world conditions, with some of the highest crime rates making this worse.
And in 2015, following a series of riots in the city, then-President Obama even seemed to agree with President Trump.
In an address from the White House, he states that Baltimore is in a state of “abject poverty,” and that they have major substance abuse problems.
He said that riots are more likely to occur “if you have impoverished communities that have been stripped away of opportunities, where children are born into abject poverty, they’ve got parents — often because of substance abuse problems, or incarceration, or lack of education themselves — can’t do right by their kids.”
This is a major difference from what the mainstream media, who can’t seem to find a single bad thing to say about Baltimore, are saying.
They are showing pictures from affluent neighborhoods, which oftentimes are forced to use private security to protect them from the less-affluent surrounding areas, to make their point that Trump is wrong.
But with President Obama’s comments agreeing with Trump, it proves just how unfair the mainstream media is.
Nobody claimed that Obama’s statement was racist.
That’s because they weren’t racist, just like President Trump’s comments aren’t.
But the media is so desperate to prove that Trump is racist that they will state that anything is racist.
Do you think Trump’s comments about Baltimore are racist?
