There is one good thing that came out of Trump’s terrible comments on Baltimore, where I have lived since 1976. A company that sells rat-themed merchandise has had sales increase. I have bought a lot of stuff from Rat Czar and recommend their products. I have t-shirts, glasses, a magnet, stickers and a tote bag.
I don’t mean to make light of a serious and real problem but I do think the stuff is funny.
Baltimore is not first in rat population. We’re behind Washington among other places. Trump doesn’t care about Baltimore or the rat problem – he just wanted to attack Congressman Cummings. I have thought that “Ben” should be the official song of Baltimore. If you don’t know the song, it was a love song to a rat sung by Michael Jackson as the theme song to the film Ben (1972).
