Former WWE star Dave Bautista dropped a verbal smackdown to President Trump on Twitter in Saturday in response to the president’s recent comments attacking Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) as a “brutal bully” and his majority-black Baltimore district as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”
“Of course an elitist POS would say that,” Bautista, a native of Washington, D.C., tweeted on Saturday afternoon.
“He’s never wanted for anything. He’s never had to fight or go hungry! He doesn’t know what the American Dream is. He’s a disgrace to everything this country is,” he continued. “How the hell did a lying, pampas, orange, ignorant, cheap salesman tear us apart?”

The former wrestler’s comments came hours after the president shared a series of tweets on Saturday attacking Cummings, who also chairs the House Oversight Committee, and his district.
“Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous,” he said in the first of a series of tweets.
“His district is considered the Worst in the USA as proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded,” the president continued in another tweet.
