Good idea for apartment residents. Throw their butts out if they or their friends can't behave.

Did the union borrow that rat from a neighborhood in Democratic Rep Elijah Cummings district?

Nope, stole it from Mar-A-Lago!

Cummings is not the mayor. He is serving his constituents by doing his job of overseeing the Executive Branch.

You're a good Storm Trooper NaziDave, taking your cues from your Fuhrer.

Dotard called someone a "bully"? That's rich.

Byron know what the hell you're talking about before you open your mouth. Rep Elijah Cummings needs to be called out on his crap and fleecing of the people. You think you have the right to slander and name call people but you don't think anyone else is entitled to have the freedom to do the same you commie rat bastard.

Someone please explain to Byron, that there is nothing wrong with bringing out the very obvious fact that Congressman Elijah Cummings has done a very poor job for his district and the City of Baltimore. Just take a look, the facts speak far louder than words! The Democrats always play the Race Card. Now, lowest unemployment in U.S. history, and only getting better. Elijah Cummings has failed badly while going through millions and millions of dollars and has nothing to show for one damn dollar of it. It's sort like the Jazz Dist here. Millions goes in to it and and whose pocket it disappears in nobody knows. Trump is right Byron is wrong how shocking. Trump's point and he is clearly making it is that the hypocrisy coming from the left, PRETENDING to be outraged and triggered into wailing/bawling sessions about conditions at the border when their own districts are in shambles and despair. Never mind it is those like Cummings who is failing to act, not Trump...he is trying but the left is doing everything they can to stop him...and it will be the subject of their demise.
I wonder if their constituencies too agree that Trump has a point? Bet they do. ("look how they care more about the border crossers than us!" ouch.) You know it hits home when they start throwing down the race card.

MAGA!

Someone call Monty Summers at Full Moon Productions, owner of the Edge of Hell and the Beast haunted houses. He needs that giant rat, to go with Ratman this season! PHOTO OPS! "Dancing in the street!"

Trump made a fair point. Cummings shed a few crocodile tears about conditions at migrant detention centers, not that he knew anything about them. But the illegal entrants in those camps are in far less danger daily than his Baltimore constituents. As he did with The Squad, Trump told Cummings to clean up his own nest and show us he can do it, before messing with everybody else's. That's racism only if you define the word to include any criticism of a black politician. He told Pelosi the same thing, so I guess she's black too.
