Baltimore Mayor Caught On Camera Complaining About Rats Long Before Trump Said Anything

Linkedin Share

Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders bashed Baltimore for being run so poorly and the media didn’t say a word.

President Trump says virtually the same thing as he’s bashed left and right for being a racist. Go figure.

Check out the radically far-left mayor of Baltimore’s thoughts from one year ago…

From The Daily Wire:

As the media and Democratic Party tries to portray President Donald Trump’s tweets about Baltimore as racist, a resurfaced clip from last year shows Democratic Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh complaining about the poor conditions in part of the city, specifically “rats” and “dead animals.”

WATCH:

As the worlds of government and technology continue to merge, the growing pains are becoming far more acute.

We live in a world today in which nearly every one of our needs and desires can be fulfilled online.  From Amazon’s same-day delivery services to Bird and Lime’s e-scooter revolution, our smartphones are increasingly becoming our gateway to the convenience of the world at large.

But there is a price to be paid for this convenience, namely in the world of high-tech computer hacking, where nefarious characters have been honing their skills for decades in order to reap the rewards.

These digital highwaymen have now crippled the city of Baltimore with a “ransomware” attack.

“Employees are working diligently to locate the source and extent of the infection,” said Lester Davis, a spokesman for Democratic Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young.

Davis said critical systems, including 911 and 311, were not been affected, but that the majority of city servers were shut down. The effects ranged from a City Council committee canceling a hearing on gun violence to water customers being unable to get billing questions answered.

By the afternoon, Davis said, city teams had the ransomware quarantined. But the cause and scale of the problem was not clear Tuesday evening and Davis did not know when the affected systems would be back online.

Ransomware attacks involve the virtual “locking” of computers by hackers, who then demand anonymous payment for access.
