David Simon, the brains behind the HBO series “The Wire”, lashed out at President Trump by calling him an “empty-suit, race-hating fraud” for his comments about Congressman Elijah Cummings and the district he represents.
Simon specifically said, “If this empty-suit, race-hating fraud had to actually visit West Baltimore for five minutes and meet any of the American citizens who endure there, he’d wet himself.”
The creator of “The Wire” added that the “president is ‘literally’ a simplistic, racist moron.”
The HBO series was set in Baltimore and gave a lurid portrayal of inner-city life in one America’s most dangerous urban centers.
Simon said in a tweet, “I am ‘literally’ the guy writing stuff about the last century of U.S. policy, about the drug war and mass incarceration, about Brown v. and white flight, about all of modern U.S. history to which your kind stays mute.”
The show creator’s attacks against Trump came right after the president described Cummings’s district as “dangerous” and a “rodent infested mess.”
Trump tweeted, “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.”
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. His district is considered the Worst in the USA……

Additionally, the President called Cummings’s district the “Worst in the USA”. He expanded:
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.
Various Democratic lawmakers, criticized Trump’s comments as racist. Cummings, the House Oversight and Reform Committee chairman, responded to Trump’s attacks by detailing his role as a lawmaker.
Cummings wrote, “Mr. President, I go home to my district daily. Each morning, I wake up, and I go and fight for my neighbors. It is my constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the Executive Branch. But, it is my moral duty to fight for my constituents.”
The Maryland Congressman has been a strong critic of President Donald Trump.
He labeled the Trump administration’s treatment of migrant children at the southern border as “government-sponsored child abuse.”
Maryland is a state with some of the worst gun control laws in the nation. It is ranked 44th according to Guns & Ammo magazine.
This has not helped cities like Baltimore, which has some of the highest murder rates in the country.
No matter how much the media try to shame him, Trump always finds a way to expose his critics.

Wuhan Locals Actually Believe 42,000 People Likely Died in the China Virus Outbreak Not the 3,200 that the Communist Government Originally Claimed
According to a Daily Mail report, Wuhan locals assert that 42,000 people were killed during the China virus pandemic that started in the aforementioned city.
This is more than ten times the figures that government authorities put forward after the virus broke out.
Official reports had 3,300 people dead and over 81,000 infected.
On the other hand, Wuhan residents claim 500 urns have been sent to grieving families every day from seven separate funeral homes in the city.
In other words, the ashes of 3,500 people are sent out every 24 hours.
42,000 urns could be handed out in a 12-day period.
According to local media reports, the Hankou premises received two shipments of 5,000 urns in only two days.
This development comes as the province loosened its two-month lockdown of 50 million people.
People who had a “green” health certificate – which signifies that they have tested negative for the virus – were allowed to leave the province from midnight on March 25, the first time they were allowed to leave the region since January 23.
However, restrictions on travelling into and out of Wuhan will stay in effect until April 8, 2020.
According to the account of one resident in Wuhan that RFA reported on, the individual said ‘It can’t be right because the incinerators have been working round the clock, so how can so few people have died?’
A source close to authorities in Hubei province declared that many residents had died in their homes without receiving an official diagnosis.
Another resident claimed: “Maybe the authorities are gradually releasing the real figures, intentionally or unintentionally, so that people will gradually come to accept the reality.”
They asserted that the estimated figure was not exaggerated given that 28,000 cremations took place in one month.
