Elijah Cummings says his constituents are "scared" of Trump
[AXIOS] House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings
...Representative-for-life from Maryland, representing half of Baltimore City, which makes his district ultra-safe, and most of Howard County, which is out-populated by the city. His shiny pate is the reason we pronounce the city name Baldymore. Cummings' politix are so liberal they're tedious, nor is he any more honest than the next seedy professional pol...
(D-Md.) said on ABC's "This Week" that there's "no doubt" that President Trump is a racist and that for the first time in his 37 years in public service, he has constituents telling him they're "scared of their leader."

CUMMINGS: "George, no matter where I go, what I'm hearing over and over again from my constituents is, "Please save our democracy. Please save our country." And you know something else they say, George? They say "I'm scared." I have never, in my total of 37 years in public service, ever heard a constituent say they were scared of their leader."

Why it matters: Cummings, the chairman of the powerful House Oversight Committee, has been reluctant to endorse impeachment. Yet he has not hesitated to attack President Trump as a racist who evokes fear in his own constituents, raising questions about when the Democratic Party's moral bar for impeachment will outweigh the potentially harmful political ramifications.

#14  They are afraid of the media created straw man version of Trump. If the media told the truth it would be different.

#12  "Courage is fear that has said it's prayers."
Love that quote. Concise, trite, just like me.

#11  A little fear is not always a bad thing.

#10  If you can't convince everyone that Trump is racist, then you'll be left with trying to explain the number of black votes he gets in the upcoming election. 'Blexit' is a thing, even if no one wants to talk about it.

#8  He was on the news last night and the reporter asked if he thought the POTUS was a racist. Not leading him, or nothin'.

He answered , yes, absolutely, and I passed on the rest of the news and the weather.

I suppose if I call him a moron, I should feel like a racist?

#5  I'd be scared too. If the coming civil war gets down and dirty, I see 'former' congressional districts getting the Roman plow treatment. That's after the loss of interstate transportation for food and interstate transmission of energy during the war.

#4  The U.S. is not a democracy. We're a republic. Do wonder the idiots vote for Cummings, if they don't understand that.

#3  If they're dumb enough to vote for him they are too dumb to be scared...

#2  Maya Cummings, his wife, runs a consultancy and non profit which conveniently, gets a lot of biz from the Congressman's office and people with biz before Congress.

The consultancy and non profit also have sketchy bookeeping.

#1  I'm still waiting for one spread of evidence that he is s racist. I've been asking for a few years now. Not once got a response. Elijah is the racist.
