U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters has become a hero of sorts for the left, receiving a standing ovation Sunday night at the MTV Movie and TV Awards when she appeared on stage to present an award.
The Democratic lawmaker’s newfound fame is in large part driven by her incessant, albeit unfounded calls for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
Unfortunately for Waters, she has fallen under the scrutiny of Fox News host Tucker Carlson and his well honed skill of exposing liberals for the hypocrites they are.
“If you follow politics at all, you probably don’t think of California Congressman Maxine Waters as a moral leader of any kind,” Carlson said Monday in a segment on Waters.
“There were the ethics problems, the nutty statements, the countless unpleasant exchanges with other people,” he continued. “Her fellow Democrats used to seem kind of embarrassed of her, but no longer. According to the Los Angeles Times, Waters has become ‘Auntie Maxine’ on the left, a folk hero beloved for her wisdom and sassy ways.”
Carlson played a clip of Waters calling Attorney General Jeff Sessions a “racist” who “absolutely believes it’s his place to keep minorities in their place,” before flipping the narrative on the irresponsible Democrat.
Pointing to the L.A. riots following the Rodney King verdict, Carlson said Waters “all but endorsed” the killing of white people — a fate that nearly befell Reginald Denny, a trucker in the wrong place at the wrong time who was beaten to within an inch of his life with a cinder block because of his white skin.
“The leader of the mob that nearly murdered Reginald Denny was Damien Williams,” Carlson explained. “Now, Maxine Waters visited Damien Williams’ mother to offer her support. Williams was sent to prison on a single felony charge of mayhem, but when his accomplice’s got off, Waters joined in the celebration.”
He noted that Williams, who is in prison today, was released a few years later and murdered somebody else in 2000.
“But Waters did not learn a thing from the experience,” Carlson continued. “She went on to describe the LA Race Riots as, quote, ‘a rebellion, and in ways understandable.'”
“Including, apparently, the part about smashing people’s brains in for being the wrong color,” he concluded. “Yep, that’s the Democratic Party’s new expert on race relations.”
Naturally, Waters lacked the courage to face Carlson, who invited her on the show, but he found a willing surrogate in DC attorney and legal analyst Monique Pressley.
“I’m not saying Maxine Waters should be in prison,” Carlson said in kicking starting the debate. “I am saying, given that history, she shouldn’t be in Congress, she should not be defended by her colleagues and she certainly should not be weighing in on race relations.”
