It’s Monday.

Saturday President Trump took to Twitter to attack House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD).

Saturday.

The first three tweets came before 8 o’clock Saturday morning. At 11 a.m. Saturday morning Cummings responded.

President Trump doubled down by five o’clock Saturday evening.

For what it’s worth.

The editorial board for the Baltimore Sun, responded to President Trump’s attacks.

They conclude their article by writing:

Finally, while we would not sink to name-calling in the Trumpian manner — or ruefully point out that he failed to spell the congressman’s name correctly (it’s Cummings, not Cumming) — we would tell the most dishonest man to ever occupy the Oval Office, the mocker of war heroes, the gleeful grabber of women’s private parts, the serial bankrupter of businesses, the useful idiot of Vladimir Putin and the guy who insisted there are “good people” among murderous neo-Nazis that he’s still not fooling most Americans into believing he’s even slightly competent in his current post. Or that he possesses a scintilla of integrity. Better to have some vermin living in your neighborhood than to be one.

Baltimore Sun Editorial Board.

Sunday.

As the Sunday shows once again focused on the racist nature of the tweets that attacked another Congressperson of color, the President triple-downed on his attacks.

Once again, he used UK’s Katie Hopkins, a known white nationalist, and racist, to prove he wasn’t being racist.

President Trump’s Acting Chief of Staff Mike Mulvaney attempted to defend his tweets on Sunday.

Republican Senator from Florida, Rick Scott also attempted to defend the President’s tweets.

Monday

For Monday the President has tweeted 10 times so far.

George Papadopoulos as the News Blender explained was arrested in July 27th, 2017, in connection to the Special Counsel Robert Mueller Russian Election Interference Investigation, he later pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI and cooperated with the investigators.

At the time President Trump and team distanced themselves from Papadopoulos, saying he was a “low level volunteer.”

Former Trump campaign adviser Michael Caputo called Papadopoulos, a “coffee boy,” when asked by CNN’s Chris Cuomo about Papadopoulos and his role as Foreign Adviser for the Trump campaign.

The tweet that President Trump quoted on Monday was sent in March of 2019. The President also re-tweeted a Sunday tweet from George.


Day 3 of his attacks on Cummings and Baltimore now include Rev. Al Sharpton.

According to the Washington Post, Al Sharpton and former RNC Chairman and Maryland’s first black lieutenant governor, Michael Steele, held a planned press conference ahead of a meeting at New Shiloh Baptist Church in Baltimore where they were meeting to discuss, “the African American economic agenda and a breakfast focused on “Reversing the Economic Erosion of Home Ownership in Black Communities.”

During the press conference Sharpton defend Cummings and attacked the President calling him a “child,” adding that the President can’t handle criticism.


The Federal Reserve Bank is scheduled to meet starting Tuesday and concluding on Wednesday. They are expected to lower interest rates, but it’s unclear according to multiple media sources by how much.


For what it’s worth the current Governor of Maryland is Republican Larry Hogan.

In 2015 Senator from Vermont while running for President held a press conference after visiting Baltimore, in his statement Sanders says, “anyone who took the walk that we took, around this neighborhood, would not think we were in a wealthy nation. You would think your in a third world country.”

According to The Hill, Sanders past statement resurfaced on Fox News over the weekend.


More pressure for the Fed’s to lower interest rates and resume QE….from the President who totes the American Economy as the bestest ever in the history of the world.

*shrug*


From the “there is always a tweet” file.


In between his tweets attacking Cummings and Baltimore residents, the President took to Twitter to explain that Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats would be stepping down August 15th.

He also confirmed the New York Times reporting that he would be nominating Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) to fill the position, an Acting head has not been named.
