Rep.Elijah Cummings’ (D-MD) Baltimore house was reportedly broken into in early last Saturday morning before President Trump tweeted about the Maryland congressman and his district.

CBS affiliate in Baltimore reported that Cummings’s home was broken into. A Baltimore Police Department spokesperson confirmed to The Hill that a burglary had taken place in the area at about 3:40 a.m. Saturday and the department was investigating, as per The Hill.

President Trump responded to the news of Cummings’ home broken into and wrote on Twitter Friday “Really bad news! The Baltimore house of Elijah Cummings was robbed. Too bad!”

Speaking to the press, the President was asked about his tweet and he responded, “The tweet itself was just really a repeat of what I heard over the news. I know his house was robbed, and I thought that was too bad. That was really not meant as a wise guy tweet. I mean, his house was robbed and it came over the news and I had just mentioned it.”

Anti-Trump Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), however, took to Twitter on Friday suggesting the President was “classless”. He wrote, “Non class act to the nth. Nobody does classless better than Trump.”

Cohen was met with instant backlash on Twitter as constituents reminded him of when he brought a bucket of fried chicken to a hearing in May after Attorney General William Barr declined to appear for a House Judiciary Committee hearing a day after he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the Mueller report.

Rep. Cohen sat in his seat in the committee room in May and ate fried chicken, along with displaying a glass chicken prop over the seat Barr would have sat in if he had appeared before the committee in May.

Barr declined to appear after Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and his Democratic-led committee voted for “staff” to ask questions of the Attorney General; Barr wasn’t interested in the Chairman’s shenanigans.

The anti-Trump Congressman called Barr “#ChickenBarr” on Twitter and threatened to use subpoenas. He wrote, “#ChickenBarr won’t be appearing before @HouseJudiciary tomorrow. The Attorney General shouldn’t be afraid of taking questions from counsel or members. Contemptible behavior. Fortunately, we have subpoenas ready.” (Continued Below)
