Michelle Obama Shades Donald Trump after His 'Rodent-Infested' Baltimore Tweet
Michelle Obama threw some shade at President Donald Trump after his Twitter rant about a "rodent-infested" Baltimore, showing a video of its talented residents.
Michelle Obama just isn't having any of President Donald Trump's remarks on Baltimore residents and government officials, posting a video that highlighted the beauty of the Baltimore community's talent in dance and sports.
The video is of the Lethal Ladies, a local STEP team whom she saw perform back in 2017. She posted the video for "National Dance Day," but people saw it more as a response to Donald Trump's Twitter rant.
Trump's Rant on Baltimore
In his rant, he used racist smears against the city's representative, Elijah Cummings, whom he says is "shouting and screaming at the great men and women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border."
According to the President, conditions in Cummings' Baltimore district is "FAR WORSE and more dangerous," going so far as to call it the worst in the USA.
Donald went further into his rant, saying the border is "clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded." He then called Cumming District "a disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess."
It's not just Michelle who seems to be affected by Trump's remarks, as even the mayor of Baltimore, Bernard C. Jack Young, reacted to the attack made by POTUS on their city.
Mayor Young's Statement
On Twitter, Young made sure to release an official statement, beginning it by saying:
"It's completely unacceptable for the political leader of our country to denigrate a vibrant American City like Baltimore, and to viciously attack U.S. Representative Elijah Cummings a patriot and a hero."
Fighting Against the President
He then shared that Mr. Trump's rhetoric is "hurtful and dangerous to the people he's sworn to represent."
After saying he wouldn't back down, even to the "alleged Leader of the Free World," Mayor Young ended his statement by saying that Trump himself was a disappointment to the people of Baltimore, to their country, and to the world.
