The media and left (but I repeat myself) are outraged at President Donald Trump for his bashing of Rep. Elijah Cummings and the city of Baltimore, but those on the left have quickly forgotten about one of their own who trashed Baltimore as well.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) joined the Trump-bashing train, calling the president's comments "unbelievable." But Sanders himself has gone on record criticizing the conditions in Baltimore too:

According to the Baltimore SunSanders toured a neighborhood where a black man died while in police custody in 2015 and said "Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation. You would think that you were in a Third World country."

So, why wasn't Bernie Sanders called a racist for his comments?
