Isn’t that cute? Maxine Waters actually believes she is relevant. Like my son used to pretend to be driving my car in the driveway. Well, it’s not quite the same. I always knew my son would grow up and learn to drive, but Crazy Aunt Maxine will never be relevant.
The ironic thing is that she made these comments as she was picking up an award for heroism from the Hero Award from the Stonewall Young Democratic Club of Los Angeles. But Stonewall Jackson was a Confederate General and a slave owner. Shouldn’t she have boycotted the award?
While defending her comments urging her followers to harass members of the Trump administration, Rep. Maxine Waters mocked the controversy by saying that she threatens the president’s supporters “all the time.”
The remarks came during a speech last weekend, while she was receiving the Hero Award from the Stonewall Young Democratic Club of Los Angeles.
“I did not threaten [Trump] constituents and supporters. I do that all the time, but I didn’t do that time,” Waters said, addressing her comments from June and prompting laughter from the crowd.
Waters also expressed dismay that her call for harassment was seen by many as a call for political violence.
“What bothered me so much was, they tried to frame that as violence. That’s not violence,” Waters said. “The poster child for violence is the president of the United States. He’s the one who threatens. Don’t forget at his rallies, when he said go ahead and beat them up, I’ll take them out on a stretcher.”
