EXACTLY.  He is firing up his base which is predominately  white, male, live in rural areas, and generally less educated.  

 

Trump has a history of attacking big cities and urban areas.  He knows he has no chance of winning those districts, so he feeds his blatant divisive rhetoric to his base, because he knows he can fool them and they will lap it up with their tongues drooling for more..

KidBoy2: 

I object to what Cummings said and the way he said it.

-Cummings has no idea of the conditions he was, like many left wingers yelling to play to his voters.
-Cummings was yelling at McAleenan McAleenam was clam when he answered Cummings comment. I saw the exchange and it says a lot about Cummings.

 

 

 

Just getting you up to speed.

ps..............I think Cummings showed great restraint over the outrage of America treating helpless children worse than stray dogs at a pound. At least those dogs get adequate shelter,  food and water, have a clean place while there.

Say what? You consider Cummings' righteous indignation to be "nasty"?

 

Gimme a break!

 

In the real world, our current President's usual antics, past and present, are about a million times more nasty.

Given the fact that you posted a link to the Baltimore Sun, I take it you think the Sun is a "typical left wing paper" until it's not?  Where have I heard that before?  Oh, yeah.  Trump.

@MsStretch 

Very good article. We know that trump does not represent a view of reality...instead he is a paranoid, who wants to create fear and division, create boogey people to rail against with lies and false accusations. His program is not to help anyone but himself and his family and donors. He does not care about the citizens of the USA. He places party and self above Country. He is neither honest nor a patriot...let’s continue to call him for who he is...a wanna be fascist dictator and a supporter of putin...not who we want as a leader of our Country, nor a role model for young Americans!

Part on the link ..

Finally, while we would not sink to name-calling in the Trumpian manner — or ruefully point out that he failed to spell the congressman’s name correctly (it’s Cummings, not Cumming) — we would tell the most dishonest man to ever occupy the Oval Office, the mocker of war heroes, the gleeful grabber of women’s private parts, the serial bankrupter of businesses, the useful idiot of Vladimir Putin and the guy who insisted there are “good people” among murderous neo-Nazis that he’s still not fooling most Americans into believing he’s even slightly competent in his current post. Or that he possesses a scintilla of integrity. Better to have some vermin living in your neighborhood than to be one

Here is another little tidbit from the Baltimore Sun.  This one is from their editorial board.  I couldn't have said it better.  Some of the highlights:

 

In case anyone missed it, the president of the United States had some choice words to describe Maryland’s 7th congressional district on Saturday morning. Here are the key phrases: “no human being would want to live there,” it is a “very dangerous & filthy place,” “Worst in the USA” and, our personal favorite: It is a “rat and rodent infested mess.” He wasn’t really speaking of the 7th as a whole. He failed to mention Ellicott City, for example, or Baldwin or Monkton or Prettyboy, all of which are contained in the sprawling yet oddly-shaped district that runs from western Howard County to southern Harford County. No, Donald Trump’s wrath was directed at Baltimore and specifically at Rep. Elijah Cummings, the 68-year-old son of a former South Carolina sharecropper who has represented the district in the U.S. House of Representatives since 1996.

It’s not hard to see what’s going on here. The congressman has been a thorn in this president’s side, and Mr. Trump sees attacking African American members of Congress as good politics, as it both warms the cockles of the white supremacists who love him and causes so many of the thoughtful people who don’t to scream. President Trump bad-mouthed Baltimore in order to make a point that the border camps are “clean, efficient & well run," which, of course, they are not — unless you are fine with all the overcrowding, squalor, cages and deprivation to be found in what the Department of Homeland Security’s own inspector-general recently called “a ticking time bomb."

In pointing to the 7th, the president wasn’t hoping his supporters would recognize landmarks like Johns Hopkins Hospital, perhaps the nation’s leading medical center. He wasn’t conjuring images of the U.S. Social Security Administration, where they write the checks that so many retired and disabled Americans depend upon. It wasn’t about the beauty of the Inner Harbor or the proud history of Fort McHenry. And it surely wasn’t about the economic standing of a district where the median income is actually above the national average. No, he was returning to an old standby of attacking an African American lawmaker from a majority black district on the most emotional and bigoted of arguments. It was only surprising that there wasn’t room for a few classic phrases like “you people” or “welfare queens” or “crime-ridden ghettos” or a suggestion that the congressman “go back” to where he came from.

This is a president who will happily debase himself at the slightest provocation. And given Mr. Cummings’ criticisms of U.S. border policy, the various investigations he has launched as chairman of the House Oversight Committee, his willingness to call Mr. Trump a racist for his recent attacks on the freshmen congresswomen, and the fact that “Fox & Friends” had recently aired a segment critical of the city, slamming Baltimore must have been irresistible in a Pavlovian way. Fox News rang the bell, the president salivated and his thumbs moved across his cell phone into action.

As heartening as it has been to witness public figures rise to Charm City’s defense on Saturday, from native daughter House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young, we would above all remind Mr. Trump that the 7th District, Baltimore included, is part of the United States that he is supposedly governing. The White House has far more power to effect change in this city, for good or ill, than any single member of Congress including Mr. Cummings. If there are problems here, rodents included, they are as much his responsibility as anyone’s, perhaps more because he holds the most powerful office in the land.

Finally, while we would not sink to name-calling in the Trumpian manner — or ruefully point out that he failed to spell the congressman’s name correctly (it’s Cummings, not Cumming) — we would tell the most dishonest man to ever occupy the Oval Office, the mocker of war heroes, the gleeful grabber of women’s private parts, the serial bankrupter of businesses, the useful idiot of Vladimir Putin and the guy who insisted there are “good people” among murderous neo-Nazis that he’s still not fooling most Americans into believing he’s even slightly competent in his current post. Or that he possesses a scintilla of integrity. Better to have some vermin living in your neighborhood than to be one

Ouch.

I would be LOL if this wasn't so serious. Trump Cult members are in total denial and cannot debate using FACTS. Almost every state listed in those previous tables had Republican Governors and Legislatures for decades. 

 

Next, let's look at the 10 states with the LOWEST LEVEL of EDUCATION. As we already know, the lower the state's education level, translated into a higher margin of victory for Trump. In English, that means people who are not educated, voted for Trump at a significantly higher rate.

 

41. New Mexico

Total score: 36.11

42. Oklahoma

Total score: 35.58

43. Tennessee

Total score: 35.52

44. Nevada

Total score: 32.84

45. Kentucky

Total score: 31.80

46. Alabama

Total score: 31.33

47. Arkansas

Total score: 27.18

48. Louisiana

Total score: 22.96

49. West Virginia

Total score: 21.71

50. Mississippi

Total score: 21.06


A friend of mine is an elementary teacher in Oklahoma. She asked her friends to donate books so each kid could have a new book at the beginning of the school year. Their schools don’t provide in-class libraries, apparently. 

 

She used to teach here in Montgomery County, MD. She could not believe how few resources OK schools have. She said it’s like teaching in a third world country. 😓
