Update 2: Having been lambasted by Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi as well as President Trump and most of Congress, Maxine Waters decided it was time to bring out the big guns,bursting into tears on MSNBC as as she used “the children” to deflect away from the harassment comments she made over the weekend.
Forward to 25:15 to see the crocodile tears flood out…
“I did not call for harm for anybody. The president lied again,” Waters said.
Waters made comments over the weekend about getting out and pushing back on people with differing political ideologies, saying, “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. Tell them they’re not welcome any more, anywhere!”
She then turned to “the children.”
“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 from their parents’ arms,” Waters said, moving away from the controversy over her comments.
Waters then burst into tears after being confronted with the fact that major Democrats are denouncing her harassment claims.
“They don’t really say I’m out of line. What they do is try to find a way 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 House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who denounced Waters’ harassment comments Monday.
We’re not so sure Maxine – seems pretty clear from Chuck’s comments what he thought you meant!
