Oh No! Trump Writes Sarcastic Tweet About Elijah Cummings’ Home Robbery

Oh man, I laughed, I admit it.

Trump is loved by his supporters because of his assault on political correct correctness. Which is also something quite healthy for society.

I mean, he’s echoing John Lennon, right?

And though the news was rather sad
Well, I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph
He blew his mind out in a car
He didn’t notice that the lights had changed

Trump did this not just because it amuses him, but because he knows it will be another day of dominating the news. Oh, the outrage! Another racist tweet! Trump is promoting violence!Poor Elijah Cummings, he’s such a good man and so well liked!

Give me a break.

The media lap it up. And they’re fooled again by Trump into giving him some more PR.

Man, he knows just how to play the press. He wins the news cycle every single day.

Trump Refuses to Back Down from Criticizing Elijah Cummings

This is why President Trump was elected. He is not afraid of wreaking havoc on the polite consensus.

Poor liberals, called out for the terrible mismanagement of their cities, all of which are run by Democrats and have Democratic representatives in Congress.

According to the Washington Examiner:

President Trump continued to attack the “corrupt city” of Baltimore while speaking to reporters on Tuesday morning.

The president began his attacks against the city and Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings over the weekend, calling the city a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.

“Baltimore has been very badly mishandled for many years,” Trump stated outside of the White House on Tuesday. “As you know Congressman Cummings has been there for a long time. He’s had a very iron hand on it. It’s a corrupt city. There’s no question about it. All you have to do is look at the facts. The government has pumped in over the years billions and billions of dollars to no avail, to absolutely no avail. Baltimore is an example of what corrupt government leads to.”

Notice in the video below how CNN cites “repeated attacks on black lawmakers” by Trump. The media, allied with Democrats, continues to racialize criticism African Americans, as if Trump attacks no one else.

There is nothing racist about Trump going after Elijah Cummings, who as chair of the House Oversight Committee, is Trump’s natural antagonist. Liberals now try to defeat criticism by suggesting that if it’s against a minority, it’s racist, or if against a woman, sexist. But Trump – yes Trump, not the Democrats – is standing for free speech.

Wife of Top Trump Investigator Elijah Cummings May Be Involved in Financial Scam

Looks like the investigators may need even more investigating.

According to the Washington Examiner:

A charity run by the wife of Rep. Elijah Cummings received millions from special interest groups and corporations that had business before her husband’s committee and could have been used illegally, according to an IRS complaint filed by an ethics watchdog group.

Cummings, 68, a Maryland Democrat, is chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. His wife, Maya Rockeymoore, 48, is the chairman of the Maryland Democratic Party and briefly ran in the state’s gubernatorial race last year. The couple married in 2008. Cummings was once heavily in debt — in part due to hefty child support payments to his first wife and two other women he had children with — but his financial situation has improved considerably over the past decade.

Rockeymoore runs two entities, a nonprofit group called the Center for Global Policy Solutions and a for-profit consulting firm called Global Policy Solutions, LLC, whose operations appear to have overlapped, according to the IRS complaint filed by watchdog group the National Legal and Policy Center on Monday. The complaint states that the arrangement may have been used to derive “illegal private benefit.”

Global Policy Solutions received more than $6.2 million in grants between 2013 and 2016, according to tax records. Several of the nonprofit group’s financial backers — which included Google, J.P Morgan and Prudential — have business interests before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Cummings has served as Democratic chairman of the committee since January and previously served as ranking member.

The largest contributor to the nonprofit was the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which is the charitable arm of pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson, a company that is regulated by Cummings’s committee. The foundation, which gave a total of $5.5 million to Rockeymoore’s consulting firm and $5.2 million to her nonprofit, ceased supporting her groups in 2017. 

In recent months, Cummings has been a vocal opponent of Johnson & Johnson, targeting the company as part of the House Oversight Committee’s probe of drug price inflation.

Under Cummings, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has wide authority to regulate business industries, including pharmaceuticals, banking, mortgage brokers, and technology. In recent years, Prudential, JP Morgan, and Johnson & Johnson have had business interests before the committee.

Tom Anderson, director of the National Legal and Policy Center’s Government Integrity Project, which has been investigating the nonprofit arrangement and provided research to the Washington Examiner, said the potential for corruption is “off the charts.” He said Rockeymoore declined to let his organization view her nonprofit’s most recent public financial records as required by the IRS.
