Democrats and their allies have wasted little time attacking President Donald Trump over his tweets about Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings and his Baltimore district.
But a resurfaced clip from last year shows Democratic Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh complaining about the poor conditions in part of the city, specifically “rats” and “dead animals.”

During an interview at the time with Fox 45, Pugh toured a Baltimore neighborhood that was supposed to highlight her “violence-reduction initiative.”
But when Pugh and the reporter were walking down the street, she was stunned by what she saw, including the smell.
“What the hell? We should just take all this sh*t down. … Whoa, you can smell the rats. … Whew, Jesus. … Oh, my God, you can smell the dead animals,” Pugh said.
Late last week, Trump called out Democrats for allowing the liberal-run city to become “rat infested,” “filthy,” and “overrun with crime.”
Trump also called out Cummings’ failure to keep up his with congressional district, which includes part of Baltimore.

“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,” Trump tweeted.
He added: “His district is considered the Worst in the USA 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.”
Trump continued: “Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States. No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!”
Soon after the tweets scorched across social media, Democrats wasted little time trying to portray the president as being racist.

Among them was former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama, who both took to social media over the weekend to not-so-subtly take a shot at the president.
Amazing to see that when Trump calls out a problem, he’s smeared as a racist.
But when Democrats say the exact same thing, the media outright refuse to cover it.
