Donald Trump is once again under fire for making comments that he specifically reserves for black and brown members of Congress and black and brown people in America. Just as he once referred to rats and vermin when speaking of undocumented immigrants, he did so again while tweeting video of a single yard in Baltimore, Maryland, which is part of the district that has elected Rep. Elijah Cummings for the past 20 years.

Although Trump and the GOP have adopted their voters’ talking point, denying that anything is racist because liberal voters call them out on their racism too often, in their opinion. Just 27 minutes before Trump complained about Democrats using “the race card,” he called Rep. Cummings a racist.

His assertion that “most people already know” that Cummings has done little for the people of Baltimore is directly contradicted by the voters in Cummings’ district. Unlike Trump, Cummings won his House seat with a majority of the vote. In fact, he won by more than 76 percent of the vote, which is up significantly from 2014, when he won 68 percent of the popular vote.

Trump never mentions white congressmen in the GOP even though their states have the highest poverty rates. He’s never called out Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) or Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), both of whom are white, who represent districts in Eastern Kentucky where poverty rates are disproportionately high in the Appalachian area, which is inhabited by mostly white residents.

Of course, he’s also not mentioned throughout his little rants about Cummings that his own son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his family own multiple housing projects.

Twitter wasn’t letting up on Trump or his racist comments. Read some of their responses below:
