California Rep. Maxine Waters has always been a bit on the dramatic side but there’s something about the black community turning to President Donald Trump with their support that’s caused her to turn said dramatics up to 11.
According to the Daily Caller, Waters went on SiriusXM’s “The Joe Madison Show” to discuss the election and it was there that she went off against members of the black community who didn’t stay in the approved Democrat lane:
Waters said that she didn’t understand how any black American could cast a vote for Trump, saying, “It just hurts me so bad to see blacks talking about supporting Trump. I don’t know why they would be doing it. I don’t know why it is on their minds.”
She went on to stress the importance of voter turnout, adding that if Trump were to win a second term he would take the United States in the wrong direction.
“The divisiveness that this deplorable human being has caused, the confrontation, the dog-whistling to the right-wing, the white supremacists, the KKK, and they are coming alive. They are emboldened because they have a leader,” she said.
“He’s a racist. He does not have any appreciation for black people and black women in particular,” Waters continued, noting that Trump had been critical of former Democratic Reps. John Lewis of Georgia and Elijah Cummings of Maryland. “He has no respect for us. He is not doing anything for us. For those black young men who think somehow they can align themselves with Trump, not only are they terrible mistaken, any of them showing their face, I will never, ever forgive them for undermining the possibility to help their own people and their own communities.”
This rant from Waters is mixed with outright lies, false premises, and dramatics worthy of a teenage girl.
For one, Trump is no racist. He’s denounced the KKK and white supremacists multiple times. What’s more, between working to help the black community bring down unemployment to record levels, opening up opportunity zones, and the current project he’s undertaking with Ice Cube to help the black community with the “Platinum Plan,” Trump has to be the worst racist on the planet.
Secondly, Waters tying in the right-wing as white supremacists is an old trick that just isn’t flying like it used to. The right is clearly not in league with white supremacists. Any racists who declare themselves on the right are quickly disavowed by the right in general.
Meanwhile, the black community has hate lobbed at them from the left for mere political disagreement on a constant basis. White leftist celebrities openly tell black celebrities that they can’t vote for Trump because they’re black.
But thirdly is the tempter tantrum level ridiculousness of Waters declaring that she’ll never forgive any black person that voted for Trump.
Waters is a do-nothing politician who has kept a career going for so long by running in a district where putting a “D” next to an inanimate object would cause it to get elected. Waters’ district remains a destitute area, and one she doesn’t even live in herself. Her opponent is currently running against her on her record of not improving the lives of anyone in her district while serving herself quite a bit.
She has done more harm to the black community than any white supremacist could ever hope to.
So who cares if black Trump supporters don’t fall under her good graces? Getting the approval of Maxine Waters isn’t exactly something one should celebrate.
