Say what you really mean, Mayor Roberts

Geez—getting her “what’s expected be a difficult reelection campaign” underway, Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts comes out with guns ablazin against —do I even need to say it—President Trump:

In fundraising emails to supporters, the Democratic mayor said Trump is “moving at a breakneck pace on his dangerous agenda” and has “peddled racist, xenophobic and sexist statements.” She blasted the president’s “toxic environment,” which includes having federal immigration officials “detain crime victims who report their assailants.”

She said Trump Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has ideals that would result in the “poisoning of North Carolina’s schools” and criticized Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch for ruling “against birth control access multiple times in his career.”

By the way, Roberts’s email to supporters “occasionally talks about city issues such as supporting city bonds and building infrastructure.”
