Trump Calls Baltimore Filthy And Rat-Infested In Another Fox-Inspired Racist Meltdown

It’s Saturday morning, which means Donald Trump is going off on another racist rampage on his favorite social media website.

In a series of Twitter posts, Trump called Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings a “brutal bully” and said Baltimore – the city Cummings represents – is a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”

Fox News gives Trump inspiration for his racist rampages

It appears the reason Donald Trump threw a toddler-style tantrum on Saturday morning was because of a segment on his favorite propaganda network.

As Matthew Gertz pointed out on Twitter shortly Trump spewed his bigotry, the president was clearly pulling his talking points from a segment that just aired on Fox & Friends.

“Everything Donald Trump knows about Rep. Elijah Cummings and his Baltimore congressional district comes from the Fox & Friends segment he just watched,” Gertz pointed out.

Trump’s attacks on Rep. Cummings echo the racist comments he directed at four congresswomen of color in recent weeks. Gertz points out that Fox & Friends was also the trigger for those bigoted remarks.

There is no question that Donald Trump is a racist. He has now reached a point where he believes he can flaunt his bigotry without any repercussions.

But Fox News is clearly the fuel that feeds his racist fire.
