Although the story does include the FACT that the burglary occurred BEFORE the president’s tweets, the headline clearly claims “on the heels.”
Elijah Cummings’ Baltimore home was broken into on Saturday, according to a report published yesterday.
But, despite the facts, CNBC has a headline that deliberately lies about when the burglary occurred.
Their headline says the home was burglarized “on the heels of Trump fight.”
That is a lie.
The robbery took place BEFORE the first tweet, as the outlet admits.
Baltimore police are investigating a reported burglary at the home of Rep. Elijah Cummings early last Saturday morning, which occurred hours before President Donald Trump blasted the Maryland Democrat on Twitter for representing a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” of a district.
Police said the burglary was reported at 3:40 a.m. at Cummings’ house.
“At this time, it is unknown if any property was taken from the location,” a police spokesman said.
Cummings’ office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The president pointed out the wretched and squalid conditions of his home district last weekend, causing mainstream leftist outlets and many democrats to call the president racist.
However, being a failure and presiding over his “infested” district for years, apparently, Cummings’ only defense was his skin tone?
That’s liberal ideology 101.
No one can point out the crimes, inaction, or disasters responsible by a ‘person of color.’
Breitbart News added to the story by reporting on the disgusting and dangerous conditions in Baltimore:
News of the break-in of Cummings’ home comes on the heels of at least 5 shot, three fatally, Saturday, July 27, through Sunday, July 28. It also follows a Breitbart News report that people were shot during the night of July 24-25, in Baltimore. One of those eight died from his wounds.
On July 28, Breitbart News reported that Baltimore is on track to top 300 homicides for fifth year in a row. A 2016 report from the Baltimore Sun shows 344 homicides for the year 2015. A homicide counter maintained by the Sun shows 318 for 2016, 342 for 2017, and 309 for 2018.
In 2017 Baltimore’s murder rate was more than double that of Chicago.
Yesterday the President sounded off on the crime of the city.
He said that the responsibility for Baltimore’s conditions lies with “people who’ve run Baltimore, headed up by Cummings.”
“We’ve given billions to Baltimore they appreciate it,” the president said. “It’s the No. 1 city in U.S. for crime … it’s worse than Honduras.”
“Cummings hasn’t helped the people,” Trump said.
He’s only enriched himself.
