    Loyalty is a one way street with Republicans… Republicans are all morally bankrupt..

    • everything irie | July 31, 2019 at 9:25 AM | Reply

      Matt Alibozek you got that right, this is beyond DISGRACEFUL !!! Congressman Cummings has more INTEGRITY in his small finger than the entire trumpian cult. We need to VOTE OUT these trumpian sycophants, America’s Democracy and values are in GRAVE DANGER because of these GUTLESS A-holes !!

    • Matt Alibozek Exactly, Matt. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻. The TRUMP GOP … everything Trump touches wilts and dies. Cumming’s Committee is investigating private email violations for by Ivanka and Jared. THIS IS THE FUNCTION OF THIS COMMITTEE.

      Trump, the perpetually angry but common alleycat perceives this as a great threat for his children. TRUMP CLEARLY DOES NOT FIND IT ACCEPTABLE FOR THIS COMMITTEE TO PERFORM THIS FUNCTION…. A LEGAL AND JUSTIFIED INVESTIGATION INTO THE IMPROPER USAGE OF CELL PHONES IN VIOLATION OF POLICY.

      TRUMP TYPICALLY lashes out in an outrageous fashion about Baltimore and implies people of color are less than human. PREPOSTEROUS. Trump also criticized a well-known, highly respected Congressional Chairman of the Ways and Means
      Committee in disparaging Elijah Cummings.

      BALTIMORE AND MANY OTHER U.S. CITIES ARE IN A STATE OF EMERGENCY IN TERMS OF LIVING CONDITIONS FIR LOWER INCOME COMMUNITIES. WHY IS BEN CARSON, DIRECTOR OF HUD, NOT INVOLVED?? pick one or all …
      Poverty, people of color reside, low income, no financial kickback, no political benefit, indifference.

      ❌. BTW, Texas thunder is a longtime useless RUSSIAN TROLL BOT ❌

    • soulful41 I agree 🇺🇸👍🏻. Mark Meadows is truly Cult45 and would not stand up for his friend, Elijah Cummings by feeling compelled to say Trump is not a racist. MARK MEADOWS ☠️☠️. LIAR. ☠️☠️

      ❌. BTW. Texas thunder. TROLL BOT ALERT. Disregard useless propaganda.

    That’s a bunch of bull coming from Meadows flat out… To befriend people like Mark Meadows is a fly befriending a spider. Weak and spineless fool.

      @S G I fully agree with you, hats off to Mika for her honesty.

      Like Meadows have to defend the fact that Baltimore is under the corrupt Democrats party for decades and the city is a mess because of them…😂😂🤣 my friend Elljah stopped the corruption in Baltimore please. HIS IS A JOKE, LISTEN TO THE FAKE NEWS MEDIAS

    • Debra Williams | July 30, 2019 at 6:46 PM | Reply

      Tyrone Brown I VOTE FOR THAT

    • That’s what it means to lead by example.

    Meadows only knows how to defend trump and attack Democrats for doing their job. He and Jordan need to be sent home in disgrace, along with the rest of the Republicans who defend and protect trump regardless of what he says, who he attacks, and how destructive he is.

  4. Elizabeth Gonzalez | July 30, 2019 at 1:50 PM | Reply

    Nope. All republicans are sticking to the script. Disgraceful.

    • Sir Alfred Lawrence | July 30, 2019 at 2:22 PM | Reply

      Funny how none of you clowns can defend his record in Baltimore. Lol

    • Walter Carter | July 30, 2019 at 2:59 PM | Reply

      @Sir Alfred Lawrence that would be the MAYOR …sigh.

    • Debra Williams | July 30, 2019 at 6:57 PM | Reply

      Elizabeth Gonzalez ALL CORRUPTED CSI CRIME SUSPECT LYING REPUBLICAN PARTY GOVERMENT IS STICKING TO THE SCRIPT, BUT THE SCRIPT WILL STICK TO THEM IN 2020 ELECTION.. MORE FYAH

    but…but…but…trump will tweet me! – Mark Meadows.

  6. Of course he didn’t. He didnt want his peers calling him a N**$er lover, like they did back in the day to white people that defend blacks

    • What century are you living in that any one would care if some one calls you a lover of other people different from you?

    • @Lily Jade a white Republican man that doesn’t want to pick the right side to be on.

  7. Patty Donohue | July 30, 2019 at 1:57 PM | Reply

    I’m sure Meadows would like the investigations to stop. Boy would he! Sorry about it…that’s what we sent you there to do! Drain the swamp, right?

  8. are we really surprised by this? after all, just look at Lindsey Graham who was supposedly such a close dear friend of McCain but who basically turned on his dead friend to cozy up to Trump….

    • James. You watch too much FAKE NEWS. You are a low information voter for sure. You typically took comments out of context. Please think for yourself and stop using the DEM talking points. They make you sound uneducated and I don’t mean school although the comment about Lindsey sounds a little high school girlish. You can be friends with more thank one person. Grow up!

  9. Harry Truman once said “if you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.” Meadows wants reelection and will never challenge the president.

    • True

    • Chudy Ilozue | July 30, 2019 at 4:51 PM | Reply

      *or join the squad. They back each other.

    • martin winther | July 30, 2019 at 8:02 PM | Reply

      @Chudy Ilozue Aye, the dems dont stab eachother the second one speak against the chair. The dem-squad dont exile a member for talking the truth. Its what politics is about. Unite around the values that mattters, be open about what you think is its strenghts and weaknesses. Then its easy to place the turd on the table and talk about how ugly and smelly it is. It will be easy to agree on where the changes needs to be done first. The dem-squad know where the turd is, what it looks like, how it smells. They still dont have the full understanding of how to handle a turd. But at least they back eachother. They dont agree wich is the best way to clean up the mess the turd caused. But they agree it shouldnt be on the table. Thats not where it belong.

      Dang, I almost feel like joining the dems. Able to work together, to include all. They dont micromanage their members, they can speak up without being called a 4 legged mammal whos mostly famous for its blind rage and low iq attacks

  10. Meadows’ ‘both sides are good’ comment is the same as Trump’s comments about Charlottesville…

    • @svhoecke Not only are Trump’s tweets racist he is a huge racist!

    • mylifeastedturner | July 31, 2019 at 5:52 AM | Reply

      Charlottesville huh….What did Trump do at Charlottesville?

    • Exactly its the “racism is ok” talking point racists use. And he also used trumps “stop investigation” talking point. Sorry but Cummings was wrong and Meadows IS a racist….just a sleezy one.

      @Lonnie Dobbins III my honorable friend can you provide one citation on the freedom caucus that we can reference this agenda you speak on…..

    • mylifeastedturner | July 31, 2019 at 12:05 PM | Reply

      @svhoeckemy honorable friend could you please tell me exactly what was said any of the President’s tweets that was racist….

  11. Elaine Mickley | July 30, 2019 at 2:12 PM | Reply

    Meadows sold-out Cummings. Cummings came to Meadows’ defense when someone was alluding to him being a racist. However, Meadows is not taking care of his supposed best friend. Typical GOP. Remind you of anybody? Lindsey Graham and John McCain? McClain’s body wasn’t even cold in the grave, and Lindsey started kissing Trump’s ring. Disgusting and sickening GOP.

    Meadows had a chance to go high but he went very low.

  14. ElPocho DelMundo | July 30, 2019 at 2:18 PM | Reply

    Moscow Mitch and Mealy Mouth Meadows.

  15. After Cummings vouching for Meadows in open committee, Cummings was stabbed in the back by Meadows. What a guy!

    • What is meadows going to say. What the president said about Baltimore is true, maybe the reason the city is getting worse is nobody will face reality.

    • Michael Adams | July 30, 2019 at 6:00 PM | Reply

      @Drew Oliver So, the bricks are falling into place – The definition of a Dictator is; a person who obtains control by force; (Russia helped Trump win the election). A person who behaves in an autocratic way;- he obstructs justice, ignores subpoena’s , refuses to be interviewed, calls news reporters the enemy of the people, and that what these reporters say, is fake news! A ruler with no checks and balances – Trump had no check or balance, when the Republican’s held the congress and the white house – and appointed people to his cabinets that were not this president has no military experience – was given 5 deferments for the Vietnam War – he’s a coward – and want’s to spend millions to massage his ego! Trump said he would rule for years, if he could! He wants to be like the leader of China~ If this doesn’t scare every American, you truly are delusional and should take a hard look at yourselves – it’s bizarre behavior, and we the American People should not allow this to happen~

      Raykibb THAT IS WHAT MARK MEADOWS DID TO ELIJAH CUMMINGS STABBING HIM IN THE BACK,,, TYPICAL RACIST CORRUPTED, HYPROCRITE REPUBLICANS….

      Stabbed in the back to his face smh

  16. I love it when Mika speaks her heart and conscience.

  17. Alexis Mitchell | July 30, 2019 at 2:32 PM | Reply

    I deeply respect Chairman Cummings. He is a defender of the weak and defenseless, compassionate, and speaks truth to power. Mika, Thank you for honoring Rep. Cummings and expecting more from Meadows. My (s)hero.

  18. Eric Williams | July 30, 2019 at 2:33 PM | Reply

    Damm.. she went in on him!!! That the maddest I seen her.. thank you!

  19. Go Mika! You’ve got me crying because this is a serious matter. This is about human beings and human decency. We are all emotional because racism cuts to the bone. We all need to do better.

      And the people of Baltimore deserve better than a bloviating hack politician from Madison Park.

  20. Seems like Cummings should reevaluate his friendships.

    • Thats why dems lose. They refuse to see how crazy the repubs are. Bunch of Nevilles

    • Debra Williams | July 30, 2019 at 7:25 PM | Reply

      ShawwwHa MARK MEADOWS IS ELIJAH CUMMINGS ENEMY…

    • “….likewise..” likewise my azz. It’s how you back up and support your friend in return when Mr. Cummings and his district were being insulted by the lowest of the low? No matter how bad the situation are in Baltimore, this kind of attack and insult should never be coming out from the mouth of the potus.
