Baltimore has a lot of well-documented problems. I’ve written about some. https://t.co/InSSS4yz4t Some of those problems fall in Cummings’ district. But it’s more accurate to say that his sprawling district encompasses both the best and worst of the city.— Dan Diamond (@ddiamond) July 27, 2019

Who is going to be first to point out....
....that responsibility for living conditions in our cities, as well as in our villages and on farms and ranches, rests as much with the President of the United States as with any given mayor? That when he points a finger at any public official and screams "J'accuse!", there are four pointing back at him? That when he speaks and gets national attention by virtue of the office he holds, that office also makes him responsible for the conditions he decries?
The problem here is not just the racism, or the conditions in Baltimore, or even the responsibilities of Rep. Cummings; the problem is the stone ignorance and refusal to take any responsibility of the man in the most responsible position in the free world. He is not some random blowhard spouting criticism of a member of Congress on social media. He is the President of the United States. If Baltimore is in trouble, it's happening on his watch. It's his duty to protect those citizens, too.
