Donald Trump Is The Rat, Editorial Board Writes In Major Newspaper

“Fox News rang the bell, the president salivated and his thumbs moved across his cell phone into action,” the Baltimore Sun’s editorial board says in a Sunday editorial titled “Better to have a few rats than to be one.”

No mincing of words in the newspaper editorial. And following what Trump said about an American city–as the one sitting in the Oval Office–means the words from the editorial board is perfectly stated.

It’s not hard to see what’s going on here. The congressman has been a thorn in this president’s side, and Mr. Trump sees attacking African American members of Congress as good politics, as it both warms the cockles of the white supremacists who love him and causes so many of the thoughtful people who don’t to scream. President Trump bad-mouthed Baltimore in order to make a point that the border camps are “clean, efficient & well run,” which, of course, they are not — unless you are fine with all the overcrowding, squalor, cages and deprivation to be found in what the Department of Homeland Security’s own inspector-general recently called “a ticking time bomb.”
