    As if the unfortunate residents of Cory Booker's shithole don't already have enough problems, now their water is poisoned.

    See the kicker in the article below; the DemoKKKrats in charge have known about it for two years!

    Now they want President Trump to help. Where's Spartacus???

    Thousands of people in Newark, a city in New Jersey with a predominantly black and Hispanic population, have been told to drink only bottled water after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found filters were not extracting lead properly.

    The situation has drawn comparisons with a water crisis in the former industrial city of Flint, Michigan, which became a symbol of social injustice in America.

    Officials are distributing free bottled water to some 15,000 affected households in Newark, which has 280,000 residents and sits just a few miles (kilometers) from New York City.

    Local politicians, however, are struggling to resolve the crisis -- the first warning signs of which came in 2017 -- and have called on President Donald Trump to step in.

    "We need the federal government to do its share and punch its weight, Democratic Governor Phil Murphy told reporters on Wednesday.

    Nothing to see here...this isn’t politically useful to the Democratic Party-Media complex because the other party cannot be blamed.

    Much like the Dayton shooting being downplayed by media and PJ sycophantic hacks alike.

    Two years (or more) is a little too late to be alerting the public to this. The damage has been done.........especially to the children - low intelligence, brain damage, and more.

    I noticed that downplay of the Dayton shooting. Interesting how the media picks and chooses what we are allowed to know about and the PJ Lefties seem to almost know ahead of time how to relay the news according to MSM constructs.

    No worries. Trump is a true environmentalist who cares deeply about black people, and fully supports critical infrastructure projects. He will promptly address such problems instead of giving fatcats $1.5 trillion in new tax breaks.

    No?

    ;-)
