Congresswoman Maxine Waters was one of several Democratic lawmakers who did not attend President Trump’s State of the Union speech. Regardless of her absence, Waters is now calling for a parental advisory each time the president appears on TV.
Of course, this sounds insane; but we are talking about Maxine Waters here. Waters has been a vocal critic of Trump since he took office and has repeatedly called for his impeachment.
“Whenever he appears on TV there should be a disclaimer that says ‘This may be may not be acceptable for children,” she said. According to Fox News, Waters recorded a pre-taped response to Trump’s address, which was broadcast on attorney and political commentator Angela Rye’s BET special.
“One speech cannot and does not make Donald Trump presidential. He’s not presidential and he never will be presidential. He claims that’s bringing people together but make no mistake, he is a dangerous, unprincipled, divisive, and shameful racist,” Waters said. “Yesterday Donald Trump had the audacity to call upon people to set aside differences when, in reality, he has divided Americans in ways no other modern president has done,” she continued.
Waters further accused Trump of using divisive rhetoric during his first year in office. She said, “After Trump defended white supremacists, targeted Muslims with his travel ban, described Mexicans as rapists, and mocked people with disabilities, it’s impossible to believe him when he tries to declare he wants to bring the country together.” At the end of her speech, Waters described Trump as a “terrible role model for our children,” because of “his hatred for women and people of color…”
Waters has a long history of making herself appear mentally unstable when discussing Donald Trump.
