Liberal sensation and Fox News host Chris Wallace called President Trump racist during his interview with acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney.
But when Mulvaney hits him with facts and calls him on his, and the Democrats, nonsense argument he changes the subject, as noted by The Federalist Papers.
WALLACE: Let’s start with what we didn’t anticipate, that is the Twitter war. President Trump attacked democratic young Westman Elijah Cummings on Saturday saying that his district in the Baltimore area of Maryland is worse, worse conditions, more dangerous than along the southern border.
I want to part of the president’s statements. His district is considered the worst in the USA. Cummings district is disgusting, rat and rodent infested mask.
No human being would want to live there. In fact median household income in the district is in the upper have nationally and Columbia, Maryland, which is part of the district, has been called the safest city in America. So what is the president talk about?
MULVANEY: I think Maryland on a per capita basis the richest state in America yet you still see pictures on the Internet of complete poverty in Baltimore, Maryland.
What this is about though is the president fighting back against what he saw as being — illegitimate attacks about the border in the hearing this week.
If you go online you can see the questioning that Elijah Cummings did of Kevin McAleenan regarding the conditions of the border. Mr. Cummings saying children were sleeping or sitting in their own feces. If that’s not right. If that’s not accurate. Mr. Cummings has not been to the border in recent memory, certainly not in this administration. And if you fight like that the president is going to fight back back.
WALLACE: This goes back to what happens with the four members of “The squad.” Nobody objects to the president defending his border policy but this seems to be the worst kind of racial stereotype — let me finish.
Racial stereotyping. Black congressman, majority black district. I mean, no human being would want to live there? Is ceasing the people who live in Baltimore are new, not human beings?
MULVANEY: When the president attacks AOC plus three, when he attacks “The squad” last week, he gets accused of being a racist. When Nancy Pelosi does it a few days later the left and many members of the media, not you in particular, I want to make that clear, come to Nancy’s defense.
It couldn’t possibly be racist, she was simply attacking their the president is doing the same. The president is attacking Mr. Cummings for saying things that are not true about the border. I think it’s right for the president to raise the issue.
Look, I was in Congress for six years. If I had poverty in my district like they have in Baltimore, if I had crime in my district like they have in Chicago, homelessness like they have in San Francisco and I spent all of my time in Washington, D.C., chasing down this Mueller investigation, this bizarre impeachment crusade, I get fired and I think the president’s right to raise that it has absolutely zero to do with race.
WALLACE: You say it has little to do with race, there is a clear pattern here. Before his inauguration, the president tweeted about John Lewis, a black congressman — this is before his inauguration. You should spend time in his crime infested district.
Then, two weeks ago he goes after these four members of “The squad,” all women of color, and says they should go back to the crime-infested countries from which they come.
Then he talks about Elijah Cummings and he says his district is rat and rodent- rodent-infested. If infested. It sounds like vermin. It sounds subhuman and these are all six members of Congress for people of color.
MULVANEY: I think you’re spending way too much time reading between the lines.
WALLACE: I’m not reading between the lines, I’m reading the lines.
MULVANEY: Anyone watching this program just with the fact or the possibility of Adam Schiff it’s of the same thing about the border that the president would be attacking Adam Schiff the exact same way today.
WALLACE: I don’t think he would be talking about his crime-investor, rodent-infested district.
MULVANEY: He very well could. Very little to fact with Adam’s Jewish and just the fact that he is wrong for saying that. This is what the president does. He fights —
WALLACE: Your completely comfortable with him saying that this is a rodent-infested district and no human being would want to live there? You’re comfortable with that personal?
MULVANEY: Have you seen some of the pictures on the Internet? Just this morning from the conditions in Baltimore.
WALLACE: Any city in America. And you could argue why doesn’t the president or something to stop it?
MULVANEY: The rich estate in The Nation has abject poverty a state, by the way, dominated for generations by Democrats. I think it’s fair to have that conversation.
