House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hatred of President Donald Trump just hit an all-time low. But she just stumbled into a trap set by POTUS that she never saw coming.
Late week, Trump called out Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings for allowing Baltimore, which is part of the district he represents, to become “rat infested,” “filthy,” and “overrun with crime.”
Without a whiff of self-awareness, the Democrats rushed to defend Baltimore without thinking about what the president was doing.
Democrats are so blinded by their hatred of Trump that they defended Baltimore and its horrendous conditions.
In the end, Democrats defended the status quo that continues to exist in the major liberal city rather than admit that decades of Democratic rule has ruined the city.
On numerous occasions, Pelosi doubled down on the traditional Democratic talking points of calling their opponents racist.
She deflected from the real issues at hand because she knows POTUS is right when he described Baltimore as a city that is suffering from a half-century of uninterrupted Democrat rule.
Pelosi is so blinded by trying to block or stop Trump on everything he does that POTUS just led her into a massive trap that will have her and the entire Democratic Party reeling for months to come.
Whether she admits it or not, even former President Barack Obama has admitted that Baltimore is a mess.
A recently resurfaced clip from 2015 shows Obama trashing Baltimore for horrendous conditions and crime.
Following the Baltimore riots in 2015, Obama lamented about communities in the area that are struggling with “abject poverty,” “no investment,” and drugs.
The former president blamed the riots on the lack of opportunity in Baltimore as well as soaring crime rates, a lack of adequate education opportunities, and drug abuse.
At the time, Obama said riots are 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.”
Obama went on to say that there are “no fathers who can provide guidance to young men,” and that “drugs are flooding the community.”
“There’s no excuse for the kind of violence that we saw yesterday. It is counterproductive,” Obama said.
He added: “When individuals get crowbars and start prying open doors to loot, they’re not protesting. They’re not making a statement. They’re stealing. When they burn down a building, they’re committing arson. And they’re destroying and undermining businesses and opportunities in their own communities. That robs jobs and opportunity from people in that area.”
Trump just scored a major victory against Pelosi without even having to lift a finger.
And the president is absolutely right — Baltimore is a disaster.
And now POTUS has forced Pelosi and Democrats defending that disaster rather than admit that he was right.
