According to The Hill the Baltimore and Maryland politicians had a meeting today at the White House; described thusly:
[…] Sens. Barbara Mikulski (D), Ben Cardin (D) and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D), who represents Baltimore, huddled with White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and other top ranking officials to “discuss ways in which the administration can continue to serve as an active partner in supporting local priorities following the recent unrest in Baltimore,” the White House said in a statement.
The officials pledged to work on “expanding opportunity in Baltimore and in communities across the country.”
Also participating in the meeting were Education Secretary Arne Duncan, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, and Broderick Johnson, who leads the administration’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative to aid young minority males. (link)
Well, at least that’s the reason as explained by the group.
However, what’s far more likely, given the nature of the current collapsing case against the Baltimore Six, is the meeting was needed to strategize around how to control the optics and avoid embarrassment.
Maybe they just needed a bit more “space” to strategize how to further destroy the community, while claiming victimhood against the backdrop of a city, Baltimore, entirely operated by leadership who claim placement upon the same mantle of perpetual victimization.
Another curious snicker. Notice the original headline as embed in the hyper link ↓
“Baltimore Mayor Spotted At The White House”
However, as published the headline evolved to:
“Baltimore mayor meets with Maryland lawmakers at White House”
Almost as if someone called the White House for comment about the nature of the “spotting“….. I digress.
