Taking a cue from both Donald Trump's offensive and racist tweets aimed at Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), over what the president called the Democratic lawmaker's "rat-infested" district, and the Baltimore Sun's brutally scorching editorial labeling the president "vermin," Twitter users joined the free-for-all by trending #TrumpIsARat.
As radio personality and political commentator Dean Obeidallah wrote, "Another day and more racist comments by Trump. And keep in mind Trump is supported by 90% of the GOP. #TrumpIsARat."
Many agreed -- and it was on.
