California Democrat and primetime news spectacle Maxine Waters has once again graced the airwaves with a ridiculous claim about former President Donald Trump and the left is eating it up, as of yet, unwilling to separate themselves from anything anti-Trump, even the insane ramblings of Waters.
The accusation was made Saturday on CNN (big surprise there) while Waters was being interviewed by Jim Acosta (again, no shock for anyone involved). Waters made the case that President Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign was oinked to the Capitol incursion of Jan. 6, according to the Independent Journal Review.
According to the babbling Democrat (this time I mean Acosta, not Waters) Republicans are erroneously attempting to blame the FBI for the event of Jan. 6, instead of taking the blame clearly being heaped on by the liberal left (something we should have learned to sit down and take by now).
“They can say whatever they want to say. One of the things we know is we need a commission, and they are opposing a commission to find out who all was involved,” Waters said in reference to Republican opposition to a Democrat-dominated commission to investigate the events of that day.
Waters went on, growing her claim like a kid walking home on Mulberry Street, saying that the Trump rally that happened on the day of the election, before Congress attempted to certify an election many believed was stolen, was proof that the campaign was the driving force behind the millions who gathered that day and others, in support of free and fair elections so many fondly remember:
“Where did the money come from to send busloads of people in? Who supported them in all of this? Where was the organizing taking place? I’m told there was organizing taking place right in the Trump campaign,” she said.
Waters is no stranger to controversy herself. Not only has she been on the news, interviewed by so-called journalists time and again due to her willingness to throw caution to the wind and completely light on fire her own reputation in order to lash out at Trump, she has also encouraged her followers to lash out, not with words, but with actions on more than one occasions.
Recently the California Octiginarian recently faced censure by the House for inciting voters to protest if the Derek Chauvin trial didn’t go the way she wanted it to go, making more than an illusion to violence she seemed to hope would be committed, however, that was thought to be totally and completely different than what was done on Jan. 6, according to Waters.
“It is outrageous what happened to us, that the Capitol of the United States was invaded by domestic terrorists. And they don’t want to live up to it and admit what took place,” she said.
“They call themselves patriots, but that speech that you heard me give on the floor, I challenged their patriotism. And I told them that they were not really patriots. And they’re the ones who claim to be more patriotic than anybody else,” she said.
Waters then said protesters came to the Capitol to kill and said that “I’m going to keep challenging them, because they have joined in supporting literally the fact that not only were we invaded, there was a noose that was hanging at the opening of the Capitol grounds, threatening to hang even the vice president at that time of the United States.”
Republicans seem unmoved by the raving Democrat’s warnings, with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy seeming to have no qualms about standing up to the Democrat-controlled House saying that if the commission were established he would investigate political violence linked to the left.
“Given the political misdirections that have marred this process, given the now duplicative and potentially counterproductive nature of this effort, and given the Speaker’s shortsighted scope that does not examine interrelated forms of political violence in America, I cannot support this legislation.”
