Should be interesting watching the mainstream media attack the President over something that most of America already knows.
President Trump on Monday morning slammed race-baiting MSNBC host Al Sharpton as a “con man” and “troublemaker,” adding that he “hates whites [and] cops.”
Sharpton tweeted late Sunday night that he was “headed to Baltimore” where he will no doubt try to incite hatred and violence in a city the President has criticized for being dragged into oblivion by corrupt Democrat politicians.
Trump made his comments in a feud with Rep. Elijah Cummings over the Democrat lawmaker’s treatment of border patrol agents.
“Rep. Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous,” Trump tweeted.
He would add that Cummings’ district is “a disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess” and that “if he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous [and] filthy place.”
All of these things are provably true, but naturally, the media and Democrats insist that his comments were racist.
Enter Al Sharpton
Al, no matter where he goes or what he does, leaves a trail of nearly tangible slime which further divides races.

The frequent contributor to MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ with Joe Scarborough visited the city of Baltimore back in 2017 and activist there weren’t too thrilled with his past stunts trying to gin up race resentment over Freddie Gray.
“They come to exploit tragedies and collect money,” one critic said. “How much money is he going to get to speak here?”
The President echoed those sentiments in an early week rant against Sharpton.
I have known Al for 25 years. Went to fights with him & Don King, always got along well. He “loved Trump!” He would ask me for favors often. Al is a con man, a troublemaker, always looking for a score. Just doing his thing. Must have intimidated Comcast/NBC. Hates Whites & Cops! https://t.co/ZwPZa0FWfN

He followed that up with more pointed critiques of Cummings and Sharpton.
“Baltimore, under the leadership of Elijah Cummings, has the worst Crime Statistics in the Nation,” he wrote. “25 years of all talk, no action!
“So tired of listening to the same old Bull,” Trump added. “Next, Reverend Al will show up to complain & protest. Nothing will get done for the people in need. Sad!”
The point here is rather obvious and extremely accurate – people like Sharpton are only interested in making thing better for themselves. He has no interest in making things in Baltimore, another Democrat-controlled wasteland, better for the people. That makes Sharpton the actual racist in this equation.
As for the personal attacks, the President is incredibly accurate once again.
Sharpton rose to prominence in the public eye by completely fabricating a race crime, backing Tawana Brawley in falsely accusing four white men, including a state trooper and Steven Pagones, an Assistant District Attorney in Dutchess County, New York, of rape.
Here’s a brief rundown of other things Sharpton has done to “improve” race relations and tone down rhetoric in America:
- Telling an audience member on the Morton Downey Jr. Show that “you a punk f*****.”
- Inciting a three-day riot in Crown Heights that resulted in the death of an innocent Hasidic Jewish student visiting from Australia.
- Started a protest at Freddie’s Fashion Mart that led one protester to attack the store, shoot several customers, and start a fire that killed seven employees.
Now watch – Everybody on the planet is well of what Sharpton is and what he does, but the media will rush to his side in an effort to attack the President.
Maybe it’s time they show Trump a little ‘R-E-S-P-I-C-T‘ instead.
