Ans hypocrite also. My brain, with a slight delay, reminded me of an episode of his most famous show Homicide: Life on the Street episode (season 1, episode 9) – Night of the Dead Living. One of the subplots is that the detectives, doing a night shift without air conditioning in the Baltimore summer, find a baby inside a cage in the basement of the precinct.
Their emotions run the gamut. From wanting to start a lynching party to utmost care for the baby. It is finally found out that the baby belongs to a young woman who does the night cleaning and the reason she put the baby in the cage was so the rats would not bite him.
Simon made millions portraying Baltimore a third world shithole country. But God forbids the President happens to tell the truth, and he loses his shit getting all high and mighty. Possibly because Trump messed with his Plantation.
