A resurfaced clip from last year show Baltimore’s Democratic mayor complaining about “rats” and “dead animals” in part of the city.
Pugh made the remarks during a Fox 45 segment while touring a Baltimore neighborhood.
As she tours the neighborhood, she says: “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.”
Dailywire.com reports: The viral video clip came in response to media figures and Democrats falsely claiming that the president’s tweets on Saturday were racist. Nowhere in Trump’s tweets did he refer to race as he called out the poor living conditions inside Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings’ (MD) district.
“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. “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!”
