Maxine Spins Further Out of Control as Video of Her 'Crying' on Air Goes Viral
Looks like Rep. Maxine Waters is trying to backtrack on her endorsement of the harassment of Trump administration officials with the aid of a little emotion.
She appeared on MSNBC to talk about her comments and used “the children” as a distraction from the severity of her actions, The Daily Caller reported.
“I did not call for harm for anybody,” Waters said. “The president lied again.”
Her eyes appeared to water as she said, “But let’s not talk about that. Let’s focus on the children. That’s what this is all about. It is about the fact that children have been snatched away from their parents’ arms.”
Waters’ crocodile tears may work on the rest of the public, but let’s do a little fact check on those teary comments.
“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and create a crowd. And you push back on them. Tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!” Waters said just last week.
Sadly, Waters’ call to action was not echoed by her fellow Democratic leaders. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi actually rebuked Waters for her comments.
“In the crucial months ahead, we must strive to make America beautiful again,” Pelosi said in a tweet. “Trump’s daily lack of civility has provoked responses that are predictable but unacceptable. As we go forward, we must conduct elections in a way that achieves unity from sea to shining sea.”
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer also spoke against Waters, saying that her approach was “not American,” CNN reported.
“I strongly disagree with those who advocate harassing folks if they don’t agree with you,” Schumer said. “If you disagree with a politician, organize your fellow citizens to action and vote them out of office. But no one should call for the harassment of political opponents.”
When Waters was presented with the facts that her Democrat colleagues spoke against her, she got emotional again.
“They don’t really say I’m out of line. What they do is try to find a way (to) talk about civility without attacking me or anybody else as the leader of the Democratic Party, I expect that she would do everything that she could to make sure nobody believes that Democrats are out here harassing anybody or causing any violence,” Waters said of Pelosi.
Although Waters was not really crying, as some news outlets reported, she could have gotten a little teary-eyed in her attempt to emotionally manipulate the American public back to accept her again.
Well, it is clear that the left is up to its tricks again. And since the race card hasn’t been working too well, it looks like Waters is trying something new.
