Filmmaker and Baltimore native John Waters clapped back at President Donald Trump over his recent tweets bashing Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and the city of Baltimore.
The “Hairspray” director responded to Trump’s tweet in a statement to Artnews saying: “Give me the rats and roaches of Baltimore any day over the lies and racism of your Washington, Mr Trump. Come on over to that neighborhood and see if you have the nerve to say it in person!”
