President Donald Trump still can't stop talking about Baltimore or lodging personal attacks against Congressman and civil rights activist Elijah Cummings (D-MD), who represents the city.

Reports emerged on Thursday night that Cummings's home had been broken into on Saturday, hours before Trump began his original tweets calling Baltimore a "rat and rodent infested mess" where "no human being would want to live," and before he called Cummings a "brutal bully" and a "racist."


Apparently the existence of crime in Baltimore was all that Trump needed to vindicate his assertions, because he soon took to Twitter to gloat.

Trump, who describes himself as "the least racist person in the world," has repeatedly attacked Cummings and Baltimore barely two weeks after saying four American congresswomen of color should "go back" to their countries instead of being critical of American policies.

People were astonished at how petty and unpresidential Trump's tweet was, even for him.

Trump's supporters soon followed his lead in celebrating the robbery and home invasion of one of the country's most esteemed lawmakers.

There is, however, one consolation against the indecency.

Deplorable.

President Donald Trump replaced former Acting Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats with longtime Trump ally and ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell. The move came after Trump rebuffed Coats for announcing Russia's ongoing attempts to interfere in the 2020 election.

Grenell was deemed vastly unqualified for the position, to the point that officials had to assure Americans that the new Director of National Intelligence would be announced soon.

Trump said he was considering his longtime ally in Congress, Representative Doug Collins (R-GA), for the position...but there's just one problem.
