Remember When Sharpton Stood Up For Cummings In Baltimore? Here's What Really Happened

Remember when Al Sharpton made a visit to Baltimore to show his support for Rep. Elijah Cummings after President Trump tweeted about how terrible of shape Baltimore is?

It seemed in the videos that we saw that everyone was supportive of Sharpton's visit, but that wasn't really the case.

The African American community in Baltimore demanded that the tax cheat Al Sharpton “go back to New York” during his visit and press conference recently.

Sharpton was in Baltimore looking to capitalize on the “racist” tweets that President Trump tweeted about the “rat-infested” city of Baltimore which is under Elijah Cummings' jurisdiction.

Of course, Sharpton is all in it for himself, and several residents of Baltimore fully understood that fact. As Sharpton stood with a group of local leaders before the mics, a man came out of the crowd and yelled, “go back to New York.”

There is one incident in the media version of the video, someone says something to Sharpton and then finally Sharpton addresses him saying, "Thank you, Mr. Trump Supporter."

But what did the man say?

Watch the video below to find out:

The Daily Wire reported that on Monday, street reporter Austen Fletcher, a.k.a “Fleccas,” released about ten minutes of footage of West Baltimore residents talking about the conditions of the area and how they felt about President Donald Trump's recent comments concerning West Baltimore — which the mainstream media and many top Democrats framed as racist.


The residents told a grim story about the decline of the area they love, plagued by crime and murder, and said Trump was right in his assessment even if, as one female put it, she's still “Team Obama.”

Fleccas also highlighted another inconsistency within the mainstream narrative. When controversial activist Rev. Al Sharpton popped up in West Baltimore following Trump’s comments, residents heckled the political figure, calling him a “phony” and a “hustler” and asking why he only comes around during politically opportune times.

“It’s just sad man, everyday I’m crying inside because I wake up and I’m still here. It used to be okay, but it's not now,” one man told Fleccas’ crew.


Two men then complained that Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) has been representing the area for 25 years and has nothing to show for it.

“He allocated $4.6 billion for illegal immigrants but he hasn’t donated any money right for North Avenue ... West Baltimore. Where has he been at? It’s drug-infested, it’s homeless people right there in West Baltimore — two blocks from his district. He don’t come there everyday. I haven’t seen Elijah Cummings in ten years ride up and down North Avenue,” one of the men said, noting that the last time he was around was following the death of Freddie Gray, which was quickly politicized.

The people of Baltimore are no dummies.

It seems that the more and more we see of the residents of Baltimore, the more we find people agreeing with President Trump.
