Black journalist shares videos of Cummings’ district to quell feigned media outrage over Trump tweets

The anti-Trump media is responding with its usual collective uproar over the president posting a series of tweets about what a “dangerous & filthy” mess Rep. Elijah Cummings’ district is, but they are neglecting to offer any context behind the president’s remarks.

Let’s begin with the most important thing — Trump is right and there’s video of the Maryland Democrat’s district that proves it.

Calling Cummings a “brutal bully,” the president pulled no punches in declaring the House Oversight Committee chair’s district “the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States.”

Predictably, Democrats and their media allies rushed to call Trump a racist because Cummings is African-American. CNN led the way with a ridiculous notion that the term “infested” is a racist code word.

No one bothered to explain what prompted the president to say the things he said and that’s where their narrative folds like a cheap lawn chair.

Just prior to Trump’s tweets, “Fox & Friends” had just aired a segment that featured Kimberly Klacik, a black Republican strategist and Fox News contributor, who was in Cumming’s district. She talked about living conditions in Baltimore, and Trump’s tweets repeated information from this segment.

The segment included a clip of Cummings screaming at acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan about the way illegal immigrant children are treated in detention centers, but more importantly, it featured videos from Klacik backing up her claims about the district.

“There is a crisis at the border, but there’s also a crisis in Baltimore,” Klacik insisted. “Congressman Cummings represents the most dangerous district in America.”

“The conditions in his own district … are atrocious,” she added.

As for President Trump stating that the city “is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States,” the Baltimore Sun essentially said the same thing.

“Baltimore had the worst homicide rate among the nation’s 50 largest cities last year and the second-highest violent crime rate overall, according to new data from the FBI,” the newspaper reported.

And The Sun sees rats as newsworthy:

After the segment on “Fox & Friends,” Klacik began sharing video she had taken, the first coming in response to CNN’s Victor Blackwell claiming that Trump’s comments were rooted in racism.

“It is so sad to see @VictorBlackwell & @CNN turn the light currently shining on #WestBaltimore into a race issue,” Klacik tweeted. “This could result in a positive change. @RepCummings could help get his district in order. Listen to one of his constituents explain the ‘rats & rodents’ problem.”

And the GOP strategist was just getting started, as she reminded the Twitter-verse that she too is an African-American.

“Just to be clear I have more videos I filmed this video to show how long many of the row houses have been sitting abandoned. The tree in this home is taller than the actual home itself. This has nothing to do with race, I was trying to show the plight. Also, I am black,” she tweeted along with another video.

On and on it went. With each video she posted the manufactured outrage on the left subsided a little more.

“This is @RepCummings district. This has nothing to do with race,” Klacik stressed when sharing another video.

“Let’s walk through a typical abandoned row house in West Baltimore,” she added. “You will find at least one of these on every street. According to residents, there is an uptick in homeless thanks to the increase in drug inventory post 2015 riots.”

There will be more to come on this story, as Klacik informed followers that she is now being targeted by the intolerant left.

“So I am receiving calls that reporters are working on a hit piece on me,” she tweeted on Saturday afternoon. “It is truly disappointing. Residents asked if I could help get the trash removed. I filmed it, posted it. You would think people would be upset that their brothers & sisters are living in those conditions.”
