The circus that has formed around President Donald Trump’s comments about Democrat-run cities has reached peak capacity. The backlash against Trump saying people like Rep. Elijah Cummings have failed their district and the major cities that they contain has been overzealous and taken out of context in order to desperately grasp at something to help bring Trump down.
While Democrats lie about Trump being a racist for calling out the failures of Democrats to keep their big cities vibrant and clean, others are embracing the truth of what Trump said. This includes radio show host Rush Limbaugh. According to the Daily Wire, Limbaugh made it clear that Trump was right, and said it despite the social faux pas:
“What he’s saying here is the absolute truth, but it’s not supposed to be said about any place where the Democrats are in charge,” Limbaugh said Monday on “Fox & Friends.”
“Wherever you find this decadent decay, you’re going to find Democrats having run the operation for decades,” he said. “The Democrats get to claim they are compassionate and that they care, but they never do anything that actually improves the quality of the lives of their constituents. Their constituents are as unhappy today as they were 50 years ago,” Limbaugh said.
Rush is correct, and the truth of Trump’s words are very evident. Baltimore is a trash-filled city with a horrific rat problem that even Baltimore’s leaders admitted to two years ago in a PBS documentary.
To Rush’s point about Democrat-controlled cities that experience rampant crime or decay, you need only look at Detroit which went from being a vibrant city and industrial hub to a scene out of Fallout. How about Chicago which experiences murder rates so high that you can find daily updates as to how many people were killed or injured. San Francisco, a gorgeous city, has become a literal toilet with a drug problem.
It’s tragic that these once-great cities have been reduced to trash heaps thanks to the abuse and mismanagement of Democrat politicians, but for some reason, we can’t acknowledge these cities have taken a turn for the worse because it’s not a good look on the people who ran it.
Instead, their number one defense is to call Trump a racist for even mentioning it, despite the fact that the places he denounced include New Hampshire, which is predominantly white.
Still, these things do need to be called out and the politicians who brought it about more than a little inconvenienced with bad press. They should lose their jobs and investigate for corruption.
