‘Too Bad!’: Trump Mocks Burglary at Elijah Cummings’ Baltimore Home

President Donald Trump lashed out at Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) once more on Friday, mocking the congressman after reports of a burglary at his Baltimore home.

“Really bad news! The Baltimore house of Elijah Cummings was robbed,” the president wrote. “Too bad!”

Trump kicked off a feud with Cummings earlier in the week when he used Twitter to attack the lawmaker and his district. The president called Cummings’ Baltimore district a “disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess.”

“No human being would want to live there,” the president wrote at the time.

The break-in at Cummings’ Baltimore home happened in the early hours of Saturday before Trump launched his initial attacks on the congressman, local police told CBS Baltimore.

Cummings confirmed the burglary on Friday in a statement to Fox News, saying he was home at the time and scared away the intruder by shouting:

“An individual attempted to gain entry into my residence at approximately 3:40 AM on Saturday, July 27. I was notified of the intrusion by my security system, and I scared the intruder away by yelling before the person gained entry into the residential portion of the house.”

The harsh and seemingly mocking tone of the president’s response to the burglary drew strong criticism on Twitter.

“What decent adult mocks another person’s house being robbed?”

“He exhibits so many of the worst traits that humans cave have,” wrote political scientist Brian Klass in a tweet bluntly assessing the president as “a terrible person.”

Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) flipped the president’s tweet back at him, accusing him of stealing “The D.C. house of the American people.”

Even Trump’s former Ambassador to the United Nations called out the tweet. “This is so unnecessary,” Nikki Haley wrote.

President Trump didn’t mention Rep. Cummings at his Thursday evening rally in Cincinnati, but the president’s Friday tweet makes clear he’s still not done with his mostly one-sided feud with the Baltimore congressman.

I have NO problem with Trump’s comment. I suppose his comment was twisted and rewritten by the Socialist media to actually say: “Too bad he wasn’t mugged while in his home and his wife raped.”

NOTHING surprises me any more with this Party of inbred hate mongers.

King Donald The Loser is nothing more than a good-for-nothing reprobate.

He is confused about how to be human.
