Rep. Maxine Waters blames Trump for the attack on her Empire star friend Jussie Smollett in Chicago, claiming the President is ’emboldening’ racists.
The California congresswoman insists ‘he is dog whistling every day.’ She’s gotta blame somebody… so it might as well be the person that has absolutely nothing to do with it. I’m sick to death of this “divisive” nonsense from the MSM and the left.
Waters began by noting she was friends with Smollett, saying, “I know Jussie. I love him. His family’s a friend of mine. I know his sisters, I’ve met his mom, and I called already to Jazz, one of the sisters, to talk to her about what’s happening, what’s going on. So she said he’s okay, he’s out of the hospital. We didn’t talk about it much more than that, but I was on my way to Chicago to see about him. You know what I’m saying? I love him; he’s a fantastic human being; he’s so giving. He shows up at all the community events; he does a lot working with the community, but he comes from that kind of family. And so, I’m pleased that he’s doing okay.”
Then she segued to attacking the president:
But we have to understand this is happening for a reason. Why all of a sudden do we have people unable to study while black, unable to mow a lawn while black, unable to have a picnic while black, and being attacked? It’s coming from the President of the United States. He’s dog-whistling every day. He’s separating and dividing, and he is basically emboldening those folks who feel this way, maybe never said and never talked about it, never could act it out, but now they’re on it. More
Maxine Waters pretty much calls for violence and attacks on anyone in Trump’s staff and for them to be chased out of restaurants, gas station, stores, etc., and the press is silent, but when a slightly known, lefty, activist celebrity gets mugged, it’s all President Trump’s fault because he was “dog whistling.”
Will Maxine retract her statements if this incident turns out to be something other than what has been represented? Is this going to be another one of those Trump is bad stories that end up being not true? Is the left crying wolf agai?.
