NYT Claims White House Officials Have Revealed The Real Reason Trump Attacked Elijah Cummings

Interesting.

President Trump once again sparked massive controversy over the weekend by taking to Twitter, his favorite platform of choice for sharing his thoughts and feelings with the world, to launch an attack against Rep. Elijah Cummings, blasting him for doing a poor job with his district.

Trump’s comments portrayed Cummings as a man who neglected his people, labeling his district crime-ridden and rat invested.

As you might imagine, the left jumped all over this and used it as an opportunity to yet again push the false narrative that Trump is somehow an awful racist, because, you know, any time you criticize someone for doing a bad job, it couldn’t possibly be because they actually aren’t good at the job, but because of your skin color.

But is this part of Trump’s grand “strategy”? Citing unnamed sources “informed about the discussion,” The New York Times reports that “several” White House officials agreed during a senior staff meeting on Monday that Trump’s attacks on Cummings were a “bad move” and are the result of “impulse,” not 4-dimensional chess. Officials also told the Times that Trump’s real reason for targeting Cummings is not the congressman’s attacks on Border Patrol.

“Several White House officials expressed agreement during a senior staff meeting on Monday morning that the president’s attacks were a bad move, according to people informed about the discussion, but they were uncertain who could intervene with him — or if anyone would even dare try,” the Times reported Monday.

The White House officials, the Times reports, “privately scoffed at the idea that it was strategy rather than impulse, concluding that any political benefit he might derive by revving up his conservative, largely white base could be offset by alienating more moderate voters in the suburbs of states like Wisconsin and Michigan that he needs to win a second term.”

As for what prompted Trump’s initial tweets slamming Cummings for allowing Baltimore to become one of the nation’s “Rattiest Cities,” the Times reports that three of the president’s advisers said he had complained about the congressman repeatedly over the weekend, two of them stating that “the real source of his ire was the decision by the House Oversight and Reform Committee, which Mr. Cummings leads, to authorize subpoenas for all work-related texts and emails sent or received by Mr. Kushner and Ivanka Trump, the president’s elder daughter and senior adviser, on personal accounts.”

Trump brought up some rather interesting points about Cummings and his district. There is a ton of tax dollars sent to his district and yet it’s considered one of the worst run and most dangerous in the country. What, exactly, is happening to the money they are receiving?

Is any of it being used to help improve things or is it being pocketed by Cummings and other corrupt politicians? Where is the waste happening?

There’s no doubt whatsoever that the vast majority of the problems facing Baltimore are the result of left-wing policies that have failed miserably over a long stretch of time. The main problem, of course, is that the individuals responsible for this debacle keep snowballing voters in the area with promises of more and more free stuff they fail to deliver on.

The free market system is the only hope for these areas, not socialism. The definition of insanity is to try the same thing over and over again and expect different results. Then perhaps it’s time for Baltimore to give conservative principles a shot, long-term, and see how much things improve.

Hey, if nothing else, we can get rid of the rat problems.

Kellogg’s Introduces Woke Transgender Cereal for Kids

Kellogg’s cereals just launched a cereal to push transgenderism on kids.

The newest corporation to indulge wokeism is cereal company Kellogg’s which has just launched a cereal to push transgenderism on kids. The new flavor is an amalgam of several of their cereal brands all in the same box called “All Together.” Not only does this push the woke LGBTQ agenda, but is also give kids a spot to write their own “pronouns” on the box: https://twitter.com/robbystarbuck/status/1392669858718965766 According to gay website Advocate: Retailing for $4, Together With Pride will be on supermarket shelves in May, just prior to the month of LGBTQ+ festivities. For every purchase, Kellogg’s will donate $3 to GLAAD. For the donation to occur, patrons must upload a copy of their receipt to KelloggsFamilyRewards.com. The 7.8-ounce box is full of a rainbow variety of heart-shaped cereal bites and even edible glitter. Kellogg’s famous cereal figures are gathered on the exterior illustration, including Toucan Sam, Tony the Tiger, and the Rice Krispies elves, Snap, Crackle, and Pop. “We believe that all young people and those young at heart deserve an environment where they can grow up to be their best selves,” the caption on that box read. “That’s why we’ve joined forces with GLAAD by going purple on Spirit Day to stand up against bullying in all forms, and support a more accepting world for LGBTQ youth.” There is nothing new here, at least for Kellogg’s. This company has spent bullions funding hardcore, left-wing causes for decades. And they do this limited-edition gay cereal dealio just about every year.

Survey: Liberals Wildly Over-Estimate Cop Shootings and Crime

A new poll finds that left-wingers have no idea how many police-involved shootings there are and how much crime there is.

Trump Derangement Syndrome

A new poll finds that left-wingers have no idea how many police-involved shootings there are and how much crime there really is in America today. For instance, fewer than 50 unarmed suspects were killed by police in 2020, but when asked how many they think there were, liberals falsely put the number in the hundreds. Liberals also get just about all their facts wrong about crime in general, with the leftists imagining it is hundreds of times higher than it really is. A new Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports survey found that half of the respondents who said they rely on CNN and MSNBC for their news can’t get their facts right. For instance, the lefties think that more than 100 unarmed black people were killed by police last year. On the other hand, only 22 percent of Fox viewers thought that that more than 100 unarmed blacks were shot by police. Specifically, the survey asked: “Approximately how many unarmed African Americans were fatally shot by police in 2020? Less than 50, 50 to 100, 500 to 1,000, 1,000 to 5,000, 5,000 to 10,000, or more than 10,000.” Twenty-four percent of CNN viewers and 19% of MSNBC viewers thought cops fatally shot more than 500 unarmed black suspects last year. Only 9% percent of Fox News viewers thought so. Fox News viewers (60%) and talk radio listeners (60%) were nearly three times more likely than MSNBC (19%) or CNN (23%) viewers to correctly estimate the number of unarmed black people shot and killed by police in 2020 as less than 50. “There is a strong correlation between a likely voter’s favorite television news outlet and his or her understanding of basic facts about police shootings and homicides involving rifles,” Justin Haskins of the Heartland Institute said of their results. “Compared…
