Sun doesn’t let anybody ‘off the hook’

Bill Bramhall's editorial cartoon for July 30, 2019, following Trump's comments towards Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and his "disgusting, rat and rodent infested" district over the weekend. The Baltimore Sun fired back with a scathing article titled: "Better to have a few rats than to be one."

Two recent letters complain that The Sun lets Baltimore’s leadership off the hook for the city’s problems (“Sun’s criticism of Trump is disgusting,” July 30). As a city resident of less than a year, I have read the coverage and find it thorough, detailed, unrelenting and often distressing.

Baltimoreans know what the city is up against, which I can’t say for a drive-through critic or a white suburbanite who “give[s] the city a wide berth.” As for President Donald Trump, I’d like to know whether, when, and how often he has visited. Might he accept Michael Steele’s invitation? I hope so. He might gain some of the knowledge required before claiming to speak truth about thousands of people and their political leaders.
