Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA……— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 27, 2019
….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

“200 to 300 years from now, people will look back on this moment and they will ask the question, what did you do? … I may be dancing with the angels when all of this is corrected, but I’ve got to tell you, we must fight for our democracy.” pic.twitter.com/6Mk1OWnbni
If the Democrats are going to defend the Radical Left “Squad” and King Elijah’s Baltimore Fail, it will be a long road to 2020. The good news for the Dems is that they have the Fake News Media in their pocket!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 29, 2019
As many of you have no doubt already heard, Kang Elijah Cummings of Baltimore unexpectedly died yesterday of “longstanding health challenges” which we understand to be a reference to the stress of living as a person of color in Trump’s America.
“By the time Representative Elijah Cummings left the pulpit during the funeral services for Freddie Gray, on April 27, 2015, he had delivered a word, as the church elders are prone to call it. “I’ve often said our children are the living messages we send to a future that we will never see,” the congressman told the congregation of New Shiloh Baptist Church, in Baltimore. “But now our children are sending us to a future that they will never see. There’s something wrong with this picture.” Gray, who died on April 21st, a week after sustaining injuries while in police custody, at the age of twenty-five, had become a symbol for the relationship between black people and the police in Baltimore, and beyond. (Charges against officers who were involved were later dropped.) When I visited the city, two days before his funeral, it seemed to be edging toward detonation. Not long after I arrived, a protest march wound through downtown, then past the courthouse and the inner harbor, before concluding in sporadic rioting just outside Camden Yards, where the Orioles play. I watched from an overpass, as groups of young men smashed the windows of police cars, and officers in riot gear marched toward the demonstrators. The violence there resulted in two people being injured and a dozen arrested. ….”
Cummings was a champion of liberal democracy and his body will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol before he is laid to rest in his beloved shithole, Bulletmore, Murderland.
“WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings, whose death on Thursday left both Republicans and Democrats mourning the loss of a lawmaker they praised as passionate and decent, will lie in state in the Capitol, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday.
Mr. Cummings, a son of sharecroppers who rose to become one of the most powerful Democrats in Congress and a central figure in the investigations into President Trump, will lie in Statuary Hall, the grand, two-story semicircular room between the Rotunda and the House chamber.
A formal ceremony will be held there Thursday morning, Ms. Pelosi said, for members of Congress, the Cummings family and “invited guests.” After the memorial, Mr. Cummings’s coffin will be moved just outside the House chamber for a public viewing, a spokesman for Ms. Pelosi said. …”
He leaves behind a city which is known to be infested with some of the largest rats in North America, millions of more bags of trash to be picked up by Scott “The Persistance” Presler and where the murder rate is at a higher level than when The Wire was on television.
“BALTIMORE—Seventeen people were shot over the weekend in Baltimore, including four who died, police said, bringing attention to a rise in the city’s murder rate after a decline last year.
The city’s homicide toll so far this year is up 12% to 272, compared with the same period last year. Nonfatal shootings have jumped 22% over that span to 634, according to police.
Homicides are also up this year in some other U.S. cities, including Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York City. In Chicago, by contrast, police say homicides are down 11% compared with the same time last year, and down 31% from this point in 2016, when killings soared there.
Baltimore’s burst of violence over the weekend included an apparent road-rage incident in which a 2-year-old boy was shot in his stomach as he was riding in a car with family members. Police believe the incident began when a driver honked at another car for not moving after a traffic light turned green. …”
Although it was ugly to others and a disgusting, crime-infested and polluted shithole in the sight of the world, Baltimore was always a lovely place to him.
RIP King Elijah
