She definitely didn’t help Rep. Elijah Cummings with this one…
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez intended to defend Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the chair of the House Oversight Committee.
She intended to defend him against an attack by President Donald Trump on Saturday is which he blamed Cummings for the state of his district.
“Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous.
“His district is considered the Worst in the USA. As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded.
“Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place,” he said.
“Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States.
“No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!” he said.
But in her defense of the representative the only thing she did was give everyone another reason to doubt his ability.
“Let me tell you a story about Chairman @RepCummings,” she said. “Before new members are assigned to Congressional committees, we have to make our case to the chair.”
“Chairman Cummings was TOUGH. I sat down in his office to make my case for Oversight, and I was quite nervous.
“He looked right at me & said: ‘I am going to ask you plainly: Are you here to do the work?’ People’s lives are at stake in urgent ways on Oversight.
“He demanded excellence, & was watching my every word. I said ‘Yes’ & made my best case incl why & how I wanted to be on the cmte.
“By the end of the mtg, I had no idea if I made the cut. If you look at Oversight, it includes many all-stars of Congress. From @RepRaskin to @RoKhanna.
“Cummings is a legendary coach who brings the best out of everyone. He makes the country better. You want to be on his team,” she said.
The best case she could make for a man whose city is in shambles and who has done nothing about it for decades is that he picked her to be on committee she does not belong on?
That is another reason to question the man’s sanity and fitness for his position, not a defense of his indefensible inaction in fixing Baltimore.
People on the internet have had an absolute field day with AOC’s tweets. Tell us what you think down below…
Src: The Federalist Papers
The blind leading the blind…..
AOC & Cummings
AOC would blow anyone she loves like Debbie Wasserman Shultz, if they are colored Jew haters, she sits and sucks their cocks, one by one.
MAYBE Cummings should listen to the Black Folks in Baltimore!
THEY AGREE WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP!!!!
Maybe Cummings should listen to the MAYOR of Baltimore,
Who stated she could smell the DEAD Rats!
Perhaps AOC should visit Baltimore before she opens her Pie-Hole!!!!!!
Good grief! How many morons have over run D.C.? Too bad they can’t be deported back to
the cities from which they came and clean those swamps first.
I watched a 3 to 4 minute video a lady put on Twitter about Baltimore.
People should be ashamed to live in squalor. Of course, they could get off their butts and clean their yards!
Cummings needs to be investigated over his district being a safe haven for criminals.
Where did ALL those taxpayers monies go? It damn sure wasn’t filtering all the way down to the people!
Stupid Report. Did not say a Dam thing except Kotex Cortez and Dumb Ass Cummings are both the same.
When will this self-absorbed, self-centered, ignorant twit learn to Just Shut Up! LOL, she makes stupid people sound like uber intellectuals.
Has anyone else wondered why it is the Dem party politicians- particularly in the House have so many moronic, do-absolutely-nothing-for-there-district, Unhinged, Unbalanced, Self-righteous, supercilious, Fools?!
Could it be most are nothing more than power-hungry, greedy, Con-Artists, whose only real goal is to grow Filthy Rich Off of the American Taxpayers?
Yes, Cummings, Watters, Nancy, Chuck, Biden, and you too little AOC whose only real accomplishment in life appears to be running for office and getting in on your looks (it certainly was not your brains) and now have over $11 Million Dollars in just 8 months- I am talking to YOU!
Trumps Right- if looking into his last 10 yrs of Taxes is fair game for oversight -even though he was not in office of any kind- Then it is surely fair to look at these decades-long swamp-dwellers Taxes!
So Investigate them Mr. President and let’s see what They have been up to!
If what is said–Cummings most go–but first –someone should investigate as to the funds for that district –and where did those funds go” If Cummings used those funds for other then what they were stated for–Maybe federal charges and maybe some jail time is forth coming. WHAT HAPPENS when a federal elected official uses funds not for areas it was sent for. ” IMPEACH THE CONGRESSMAN”
Damn you, AOC! I’m a refugee from Elijah Cummings’ 7th District of Maryland.
What the President said was restrained and mild. It is a sh!thole infested with crime, violence and family breakdown. Cummings is simply an entrenched overseer on the Big Liberal Plantation.
AOC – Take a stroll down Edmondson Avenue in Cummings’ district on any Saturday night. Good luck — you’ll need it, little fool!
It’s time for the Democrats to realize their paychecks are coming from America for American taxpayers. They can’t seem to do their job because they are focused on illegals! If they don’t want to do their job they should resign and find a candidate/ replacement that is willing to work for the American people-not for illegals that bring all their problems on themselves, their children and tax paying Americans. Democrats need to make a decision-not to become angry and upset when the truth is told and exposed. Many of these states/citizens/taxpayers suffer with homelessness, unemployment,veterans services illness, lack of healthcare that need immediate attention yet they are ignored. IT’S TIME TO FOCUS ON THE AMERICANS-CLEAN UP YOUR OWN BACKYARDS FIRST! AMERICANS ARE PAYING YOU-AMERICANS ARE TIRED!! Don’t be offended when the truth is told. Obviously Trump is telling the truth!!
cummingsis a loud mouth jackal who along with his wife is guilty of stealing charitable contributions from the charity he and his crooked wife run to live the rich life, they both should be arrested and convicted and sent to long terms in jail, he is such a loud mouth aggressive jackal because he hides behind this to hide wife and his thievery. the fools in his district elect him because he claims to get so much money for his district, but he fails to tell what happens to the money, it is funneled into his wife and his pocket
