WATCH: Remember Those Times Bernie Sanders Basically Called Baltimore A ‘Sh*thole’ Too?

No, Bernie Sanders didn’t actually call Baltimore a ‘sh*thole,’ but his words were pretty demeaning of the city that people are now rushing to defend.


President Trump has a way of putting things that, regardless of how true his statements are, make liberals’ heads explode.

While many on the Left see Trump’s attacks on Elijah Cummings and his Congressional district in Baltimore as ‘racist,’ the fact of the matter is he is not saying anything that people do not already know.

Baltimore, with a murder rate “well above that of any other large American metropolis,” is poor, dirty and crime-infested.

And, back in 2015 and 2016, Bernie Sanders was pretty much in full agreement.

WATCH:


Back in 2015, when Bernie Sanders was running for against Hillary Clinton in the Democrat Party primary, he stopped through Baltimore.

During his visit, he made some remarks about the city that no one—including his entourage of “community leaders”—thought was racist.

“Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation,” Sanders said during his press conference. “You would think that you were in a Third World country, where unemployment is over 50%.”

“A community that does not even have a decent quality grocery stores where moms can buy quality food for their kids,” Sanders continued.

“But today what we’re talking about is a community in which half of the people don’t have jobs,” he said. “We’re talking about a community in which there are hundreds of buildings that are uninhabitable.”

“I didn’t see a decent grocery store around here,” Sanders stated later during a meeting with faith leaders, “So what are moms feeding their kids?”

A few months later, in 2016, Bernie Sanders again used Baltimore as a punching bag during a campaign rally–likening the city to “The West Bank in Palestine,” “North Korea,” and “distressed cities in Nigeria, India, China, and South Africa.”

However, Bernie Sanders—the “likeable” old Socialist from Vermont—is not Donald Trump, nor does he have Trump’s penchant for calling people out the way Trump does.

Here’s what started the whole charade:

Within hours after those tweets, Democrats and their allies in the media rallied to the defense of Elijah Cummings by calling Trump’s tweets ‘racist.’

However, Trump wasn’t backing down—and hasn’t yet.


On Monday, Rev. Al Sharpton weighed in on the Trump vs. Cummings’ Baltimore tiff.

Perhaps Sharpton should check with Sanders before spouting his ‘facts’ about Cummings’ district.
