It’s getting so bad for the Democratic Party leadership that one could almost start feeling sorry for them. Almost, but not entirely. What’s happening to that party is of their own doing with the extraordinary destruction delivered by a party run and influenced by charlatans and frauds.
The latest illustration, courtesy of President Donald Trump, comes in the form of their bizarre panic because Mr. Trump spoke publicly and passionately about the Democratic destruction of Baltimore, a great and important American city.
Baltimore was established in 1729. The U.S. Navy’s first ship, the Constellation, was launched in Baltimore in 1797, and the Continental Congress from December 1776 to March 1777 met in Baltimore. It was a grand start for a wonderful city that has been kneecapped by 20th- and 21st century liberal policies reducing it to a hopeless, poverty-stricken, rat-infested, murderous town.
But this is not a unique story; this is the trajectory we’ve seen in every liberal-run city in this country. The people of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Detroit and New York, among others, all know what the people of Baltimore are going through.
The reason we are talking about Baltimore is because Mr. Trump thought it worth mentioning while watching Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Baltimore’s congressional representative for a quarter of a century, spend his time in Congress “resisting” Mr. Trump’s pro-America agenda, especially obstructing any effort to address the continuing southern border human catastrophe.
