Less than a week after demanding that we get rid of “serial, racist, ignorant, & stupid cops,” Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters is now claiming President Donald Trump is a racist who only cares about “white power.”
During a bizarre interview Sunday on MSNBC, Waters was asked by host Alex Witt about the president retweeting a video clip on Twitter that seemed to feature a man shouting “white power” during a protest in Florida.
“So let’s get to the tweet. It has been removed from the president’s Twitter feed. The White House is saying the president did not hear the one statement that we just highlighted until the video, but what is your reaction? Do you think the president was willfully pushing an agenda, or would he be unaware of what is being said there eight seconds into the video,” Witt asked Waters.
Waters said, “Well, you know, we have learned a lot about this president. And so it’s not believable what he said he did not hear it. As a matter of fact, since he’s been president and increasingly we’re hearing all kinds of racist comments. People, the white men who just did that, they felt empowered by this president, that it is all right to do this now, to talk like this. So he’s responsible for the growing division, the more racist comments that we are hearing.”
She continued, “Not only blacks but all Americans should be concerned that this outpouring of racism and talks of killing and violence is not good for this country. So this country cannot progress as long as this president is in office and basically dog-whistling to this kind of constituency and having them feel it is all right. That they have the White House and they’ve got the president of the United States who is with them. And so it is more than concerning. It is absolutely outrageous that we’re now living in a time when the president of the united states of America is responsible for this kind of division.”
Waters added, “When we have a president like Trump, what you have is people thinking too many thinking this is okay to do. This is all right for me to talk like this. I was right all along. If the president is saying it and acting it out and encouraging me, then what I’ve known all along, what I’ve been taught, what I’ve lived with is right.”
She concluded, “As he said, we have to take back our country. Who he is talking about taking it back from? Basically, he’s talking about whites being in total power, and total control and blacks and people of color and others are having to live under the domination of white power as they see it.”
Last week, the California Democrat took to Twitter and declared that “police reform” is not enough, saying that we must get rid of “serial, racist, ignorant, & stupid cops.”
“Watch the video of the killing of #RayshardBrooks. A senseless & needless killing by a murderous cop! Police reform is NOT ENOUGH. Getting rid of serial, racist, ignorant, & stupid cops must be a top priority. Let’s call them out! Police protective unions, you’ve got to go too!” Waters tweeted.
Waters has been going after the president a lot lately.
During an interview on Cheddar Live, the California Democrat claimed Trump is “destroying America.”
While speaking about the national riots and violence taking place in America following the tragic death of George Floyd, Waters claimed that Trump is advocating for the killing of white children.
A transcript is as follows:
BRAD SMITH: You’ve expressed being unsure that Biden can win the presidency over Trump. Do you expect the escalation of national issues and the responses of both candidates to voters one way or the other?
REP. MAXINE WATERS: I do, I do. I know there have been some concerns about Biden, but I see a growing understanding that he must be elected. He must be elected because this president is destroying America. And not only is he goading confrontation, this business of calling out the military, now he’s not only talking about killing black people, he’s talking about killing young white children.
And guess what? Guess what? I do not believe that whether you’re a Republican or you are an independent that you’re going to stand for your white daughter, your white son to be killed by the military because this president is using it as a campaign tool in order to have his people that already support him believe that he’s saving them from these bad people, these outrageous people.
A week before that, Waters appeared on MSNBC and gave a lengthy defense of the criminals destroying American cities and actually said it’s wrong to even refer to them as “looters.”
“Young people, they have a whole new definition for ‘looting,’” the 81-year-old congresswoman said said. “They say ‘looting’ is predatory lending in, you know, minority neighborhoods, where they’re paying 300 and 400 percent on loans by these payday lenders. … You know, on and on and on. They have a different definition for it.”
So, according to Waters, the people who are destroying small businesses and assaulting innocent Americans aren’t evidence of “looting.”
It’s almost impossible to understand the logic of a liberal.
