Author Since: Mar 11, 2019

  1. Don’t Baltimore have whites leaving in that rat infested neighbourhood? Why relate it to only Blacks and minority’s. Mr. Lewis u live a life in denial of the reality of ur being. Farrakhan tried to remind u but u fled from him now u are faced with the reality of ur perceived inferiority before the public media. Ur European wearing suits ties shoes and neighbourhood cannot save u. Only the truth will

  2. The truth is always bitter so stop playing the racist card.show the truth about Baltimore and shut his mouth. Let see if you are real

  3. Trump had 18 billion Dollars made available to Baltimore since 2018 BUT had it tracked. The rest as they say will be history. Its not about Race its about exposing corrupt politicions.

  4. This panel pretends it doesn't know the difference between criticising mismanagement and making actual racist statements. Baltimore IS a trash dump and IS infested with real rats and real violence. Trump has a history of calling out real issues liberals don't deal with, and that's why Trump will win 2020. Middle America understand truth, rich democrats pretend to have hurt feelings… yuck!

  5. Funny "sharpton calling someone a racist" this isnt journalism " this is pure garbage! Journalism to msnbc is what manure is to an equestrian event! Seriously this is garbage! MSNBC wants people to suffer in baltimore and other cities by not telling the truth. To have sharpton on as a commentator speaks volumes about this network!

  6. You can't criticize anyone today without being called racist. Sad – no free speech. Saying "racist comments" is an opinion, not journalism. What happened to this great field of journalism?.

  7. Shoot racist President like a mad dog before he does more harm. He is spiting venom and being shot is the best cure.

  8. MSNBC, you blood succours of the TRUE American people, I just am waiting for the day when CREEPS like you are going to be behind bars. You creepy reporter along with that phoney man are really the BIGGEST RACIST PEOPLE IN AMERICA. That man Cummings is nothing but a disgrace to the black community. He lives in a BIG MANSION acquired by STEALING money allotted to the state while the poor black man looks on silently. Enough of this dirty games that Cummings and the democRATS keep hoodwinking the black people. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP STANDS FOR NO SUCH NONSENSE. He will call a spade a spade. MSNBC your channel stands by people who are totally CORRUPT like OBAMA, HILLARY and many others who seek to destroy the nation. You puppets of the leftist, you fill your bank accounts with EVIL MONEY. Money acquired for filling the TRUE AMERICAN PEOPLE with all kinds of LIES AND DECEIT. Day in and day out you keep doing this filthy propaganda news. This is nothing short of TREASON. For that you will definitely be CRIMINALLY CHARGED.

  9. Cummings, your a hating fool ! African American, your a black American you African ! Dems are not democracy, they are socialists, commies !

  10. Sharpton makes most blaks sick to their stomachs ! I’m BLAK, and can’t even look at that fool ! Used blaks to get their money ! TRUMP 2020 black folk ! Good,honest black folk !

  11. DID YOU KNOW THAT AL CHALATAN HAS OWED MILLIONS IN BACK TAXES FOR MANY YEARS NOW? WHY ISN'T HE IN PRISON WITH WESLEY SNIPES?

  12. Has MSNBC given up objectivity? You do all realize that this reporter is actually slandering by declaring, on several occasions, that Trump is racist. And, by the way, that Rev (so funny) Sharpton is a con man who has been documented to threaten racist violence.
    Just a question, if a person of colour (whatever that means) attacks Trump, they get a pass?

  13. What has this guy actually done for black people? He’s rich your not. Baltimore is still a shithole! And you people wanna let families in when you can’t even take care of your own communities. Ridiculous!!!

  14. Elijah Cummings said at a House subcommittee hearing in June of 1999: “I live in a drug-infested neighborhood. I know people who have been trying to get treatment for years.” Rep. Cummings elaborated on the horrific conditions in Baltimore

  15. "Now, the white house is predictably claiming that it is not all racist and people are reading too much into the president's comments, but that is to put in terms that Trump would understand: the purest BS."

    Thank you, MSNBC. I can always count on you to offer the most thorough, sound, and rationally compelling arguments for your claims. Labeling a position BS is the epitome of a sound refutation.

  16. We're blaming Donald Trump for Baltimore? What has Cummings been doing on behalf of Baltimore since he has been in Congress since 1996?

  17. I hate to say it, but the American people are NOT buying into the RACE CARD B.S. Any more….(this is coming from a black man)

  18. Trump: "Cummings is horrible! Baltimore is infested with rats! He has done nothing for his district of Baltimore and the people there are suffering for it"
    MSNBC: "Now Trump is attacking Cummings because he's black and is calling black people in Baltimore rats."

  19. We are witnessing trump's American Extremism or 'MAGA' as he calls it. The only way to defeat the rhetoric and politics of American Extremism/MAGA is to vote this racist white nationalist out of office in 2020. trump will then face the full weight of the law for his criminal activities. He will not be able to hide behind the office of President and his gutless GOP will go underground. The silent gutless GOP representatives all need to be voted out of Congress and the Senate!

  20. Funny how all the Liberals networks never want to mention how much trouble Sharpton's been in with the IRS or how many times he's been accused of taking kickbacks or the times that he's paid off women to keep their mouth shut when they been abused by him funny how your libertard networks always forget that point.

  21. TRUMP IS RIGHT ALSHARPTON IS RACIST LOOK WHAT HE SAID ABOUT WHITES http://www.teamnetworks.net/photo/3345/al-sharpton-quote-about-white-folks-in-caves-and-h/

  22. Its not a dog whistle. Its a foghorn. Trump is a racist and he let us know that day one of his campaign. He never suffers any consequences so he keeps getting worse. He's a cancer.

  23. Sadly the Democratic Party was built by and ran by racism. They attack minorities and tell them everyone else is raciest and watch out for that white republican he’s racist. 😂😂 even Dr. Martin Luther King jr. knew this and said the Democratic Party isn’t for black people. 😂😂 when the Democratic Party can’t find something to call raciest that make up allegation or turn on themselves and start yelling racism at them selves. Everyone’s seeing what’s really going on and it’s sad people still support this behavior

  24. Don't forget Trump's hated for the poor. It isn't just people of color…he has nothing but disgust for poor people and so do most of his cult and the GOP.

  25. Al is a walking example of pride filled Christian Hypocrite. Worshipping his unforgivness instead of the savior whose name he claims.

  26. Do you know why Mr Trump, his administration and family are being attacked? They are actually workforce a living. It is putting a huge focus on the reality that these as…es have been conning the American taxpayers for decades. Say they will do things they NEVER ACTUALLY GET AROUND TO DOING. The boss gets done in a matter of a few months! Why don’t you stop being a Pravda press Corp and start actually being a news again?

  27. I think we need to follow Hong Kong protests and take to the streets and demand the removal of this Trump. Nothing he has done or said will remove him. Yes the economy is doing brilliant the economy is doing brilliant they say, but not for long.

  28. I thought I read something that the president can’t bring down the might of the presidency’s on a single citizen because it would be catastrophic for that person.

  29. All blacks better listen to how the democrats put us in the same category as rats. Urban means black but rats and infested doesn't. These are KKKs on low and blame it on a white president. It's worse when they use the black pawns like Al Sharpton, Eric Dyson and Oboso

  30. Race is all white people have, and it works for them in America, but it wont work when they die and face GOD.

  31. What happened to the "patriotic" population demographic, and their beloved Pledge of Allegiance and the words "indivisible, with liberty and justice for ALL"?

  32. These news outlets are secretly toasting to Donald Trump just think about all the money 💰💰💰Trump bri gs in with all his rhetoric!!! They couldn't get get enough.

  33. Racism only truly gets a voice when the media gives it one……. You want to stop racism then first stop naming people by race and skin colour. Find other ways of describing your fellow Americans and stop talking about minorities and how hard done by they are. You welfare system is in place to help those who can't help themselves but stop telling people they are entitled to be treated differently because of the minority states you give them.

  34. So critiquing any non white member in Congress is now racist? You people 🙄 the word racist was used 30 times alone in this video. So glad people are more educated and awoke to special interest news like this.

  35. Let me make this simple. If an African American restaurant was infested with rats are you going to let them keep working in that rat infested environment?

  36. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE  BILLIONS of DOLLARS BALTIMORE RECIEVED IN FEDERAL GRANTS? This demands a serious investigation. They are hiding something in Baltimore. They are covering it up by playing the race card.

  37. MSNBC is playing the race card under false pretenses to cover up some extremely serious problems in Democratic controlled cities.

  38. Trumps base, at its core is racist, and always were but never had someone who gave them a voice. They feel emboldened by Trumps lack of civility, and are encouraged by his recklessness and his encouragement of them. The Republican party, because they are supporting Trump, is therefore racist and will never get my support, EVER.

  39. “I’m not reading between the lines, I’m reading THE lines”…DAT PART!!! YOU GO BOY 👏🏾🥰💯

  40. You and your station are so full of it. If you and your station are honest and say things as they are, then why not call others racist? Those who said the same about Baltimore, the ex mayor, Sanders, Obama and Cummings himself who said the place is full of zombies!!!! Isn't that racist you lousy biased reporter.

  41. I watched this to the end. I am not wondering why. I didn't learn anything. The argument on Trump being a racist wasn't moved. Please get college students to discuss and debate the issues.

  42. DEMOCRATS can't fire up the base because the messages are tired, old, and rightly stop using analytical thinking

  43. How many times can they announce Trump is a racist? We know this. New York Times wrote about his racist acts in '2016. MSNBC anchors, like Al Sharpton, couldn't get the message out nationally. MSNBC failed then and continue to fail its audiences both here and abroad.

  44. When Trump goes to prison in 2021, I hope they put him in a federal lockup in Baltimore.I want to see how he looks with his ear partially chewed off by a giant rat…. Then I want to see the rat spit out the ear as tasting too disgusting.

  45. You know Cummins called Baltimore completely drug infested and that it’s residents walk around like “Zombies”….how is that okay but what President Trump said is bad?

  46. If he is re-elected in his state, it tells me how ignorant the people of Kentucky are, and this also goes for Lindsey Graham. The American people would speak if all 20 senators seeking re-election is is kicked out of office.

  47. The one's screaming "Racist" the loudest are usually the real racist. If you believe this report means Trump is a racist, you have truly been brainwashed.

  48. I think rump is too stupid to be racist. Kinda like a 5 year old. He all about himself, EVERY race should be terrified by dumb dumb!

  49. No, this will go down in history as the time the swamp was drained. America is getting a better understanding of what's going on, hence the abysmal ratings of this network.

  50. You guys are the only one's making this about racism, you're twisting the News and using it to manipulate people who don't do their own research. How do you sleep at night knowing that your deceiving all these people with your lies.

  51. Elijah Cummings says Baltimore is a drug infested area in 1999 on CSPAN2 !!
    @
    So Deep State Cummings can use the term drug infested, but when Trump says it. Its Racist, Mmmm.

  52. you do not need to be a stable genius, to see that Trump is a Racist, the Grand Orange Wizard see everywhere with darker people as a rat infested hole, NEWS the Philippines is in CREDIT the USA is in debt and needs war to make money from selling bombs and guns, and have military Rule to control its unhappy people

  53. Cnn – white mocha liberalism
    Msnbc – black espresso sjw rainbow unicorn liberalism
    lets knuckle up again in 2020 and all watch Trump win again lol

  54. The racist nasty Dems just hate everyone followed by their MSM. They have tortured thousands of poor people just to spite one man. Well done.

  55. Lol trump's going to run a racist campaign. Lol. You mean he's going to do what he did to become the illegitimate president he is today. I'm sure that the Republicans will back him up. But remember that the poorest states in this country are represented by Republicans. So read between those lines. Trump should never call anyone a racist, because he's exactly that a racist white nationalists/klansman.

  56. Trump is pandering to his racist base. That are eating up all of his crap. Because he's saying exactly what they have been saying behind closed doors for year's. I hope that the blacks and Hispanics in this country realize exactly what going on in this country. And vote to clean out the vermin in the white house. A lowlife klansman/white nationalists. The blue states are the poorest states governed by Republicans. And there's nothing worse than a poor white man. Because he'll always be looking for someone to blame for his misery, but the ones responsible for their poverty. The only people that don't believe that trump is racist are racist.

  57. Trump racism towards whites is out of control. He attacks Pelosi, McCain, Schiff, Comey,& the list goes way to long.

  58. I agree with trump, clean up Baltimore, and start with his son-in-law. Oh, did trump forget most of those rat infested apartments belong to HIS son-in-law. I’m willing to bet he didn’t mention that those rat infested apartments that got all those citations for not taking care of their properties is HIS son-in-law. Clean up your own house before you start calling out others. The people trump is putting down are poor, what is his son-in-law ‘s excuse.

  59. A "colored" person is what slaveowners (DemonRATS) called there African supplied black slaves. It is a racist term used by DemonRATS to this day.

  60. He might as well refer to us as The n-word,you can see the hate and disdain for us in his speech,and face.
