Baltimore Made the Top 10 List of ‘Rattiest Cities’ from Pest Control Experts

It would be hard for Democratic lawmaker Elijah Cummings to argue with this

A report by pest control company Orkin in 2018 showed that Baltimore, Maryland — the city President Donald Trump lambasted as being “a disgusting, rat- and rodent-infested mess” — was listed in the top 10 “rattiest” cities in America.

Orkin is clearly “racist.”

Baltimore took the number nine spot on that list. For that listing, Orkin analyzed the number of commercial and residential “new rodent treatments” performed during that year.

Charm City was in the top 10 for this distinguished list in 2016 and 2017 as well. It was listed at number six during the former year — and at number eight in the latter.

The city was also in the top 10 during Orkin’s first year of releasing its analysis.

President vs. Baltimore Dems. Trump initiated this debate with Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) over the lawmaker’s treatment of border patrol agents.

“Rep. Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous,” Trump tweeted, initiating cries of racism because the media want us to believe that any criticism of a non-white politician is racist.

Trump went on to suggest Cummings’ district is “a disgusting, rat- and rodent-infested mess” and that “if he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous [and] filthy place.”

The good news: Orkin is hiring.

So Democrats can finally get to work cleaning up their districts.

In common. Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart pointed out there is a common element shared with every city in the top 10 list of “rattiest” cities. “[Those cities] are currently run by Democrat mayors and have been dominated by Democrats for decades,” Leahy explained.

We’ll take it a step further. Of the top 25 “rattiest” cities on Orkin’s list, 24 of them are featured on a list published by political scientists Chris Tausanovitch and Christopher Warshaw that rank the most liberal cities in America. That’s a pretty solid percentage.

“The facts,” as Trump said, “speak louder than words.”

Far-left socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) clearly agrees. Upon visiting Cummings’ district in 2015, he observed, “You would think that you were in a third-world country.”
