There are few days that go by in which House Rep. Maxine Waters doesn’t find a way to disparage President Donald Trump and his conservative base. Waters has been a vigorously vocal opponent of the President from day one, and it appears as though there is nothing that will change that.
This week, America is once again embroiled in a national tragedy, as the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department has the nation on edge. Floyd was detained and laying prone on the ground when a law enforcement officer kneeled on his neck and, ignoring his pleas for help, suffocated George to death.
Video of the incident has been making the rounds on social media ever since, and Minneapolis became a scene of outraged violence on account of it.
Now, in the midst of our national dialogue on the incident, Maxine Water has hijacked the death of George Floyd in an attempt to disparage President Donald Trump.
“I’m reflecting on all of the killings of young black men in particular, but of course black women too, at the hands of the police and at the hands of these white supremacists.”
“And I’m thinking about the way that the president conducts himself — in a way he’s dog-whistling — and I think that they’re feeling that they can get away with this kind of treatment.”
President Trump has promised a swift and thorough investigation into the incident, and has guaranteed the nation that justice will be served.
Waters has famously called for action against Trump and his supporters in the past, telling a crowd of her constituents that they should form mobs and make conservatives feel “unwelcome” whenever and wherever they are encountered.
