Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters has never been shy about making outrageous comments about President Donald Trump, but what she said this week might be her most egregious comments yet.
The California Democrat took to Twitter this week and declared that “police reform” is not enough, saying that we must get rid of “serial, racist, ignorant, & stupid cops.”
“Watch the video of the killing of #RayshardBrooks. A senseless & needless killing by a murderous cop!” Waters exclaimed. Police reform is NOT ENOUGH. Getting rid of serial, racist, ignorant, & stupid cops must be a top priority. Let’s call them out! Police protective unions, you’ve got to go too!” Waters tweeted.
Brooks, 27, was killed in an officer-involved shooting incident on Friday after police responded to a call of someone sleeping in the drive thru of a Wendy’s, blocking traffic. According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the responding officers tried to take Brooks into custody after he failed a field sobriety test. However, he resisted arrest, managed to gain control of an officer’s Taser, and attempted to flee the scene.
“Officers pursued Brooks on foot and during the chase, Brooks turned and pointed the Taser at the officer. The officer fired his weapon, striking Brooks,” GBI reported.
For those that have seen the video, Brooks was intoxicated, and drove to the Wendy’s drunk. When officers went to take him into custody, because he was already on parole, he attacked both officers, resisted arrest, stole a taser, fled the scene, and then turned and fired the taser at the pursuing officer when he was shot.
His death was unjustly ruled a homicide by the corrupt DA who’s losing his bid for reelection, and also battling $185,000 stolen from the county bank account.
During an interview last week on Cheddar Live, the California Democrat claimed Trump is “destroying America.”
While speaking about the national riots and violence taking place in America following the tragic death of George Floyd, Waters claimed that Trump is advocating for the killing of white children.
A transcript is as follows:
BRAD SMITH: You’ve expressed being unsure that Biden can win the presidency over Trump. Do you expect the escalation of national issues and the responses of both candidates to voters one way or the other?
REP. MAXINE WATERS: I do, I do. I know there have been some concerns about Biden, but I see a growing understanding that he must be elected. He must be elected because this president is destroying America. And not only is he goading confrontation, this business of calling out the military, now he’s not only talking about killing black people, he’s talking about killing young white children.
And guess what? Guess what? I do not believe that whether you’re a Republican or you are an independent that you’re going to stand for your white daughter, your white son to be killed by the military because this president is using it as a campaign tool in order to have his people that already support him believe that he’s saving them from these bad people, these outrageous people.
A week before that, Waters appeared on MSNBC and gave a lengthy defense of the criminals destroying American cities and actually said it’s wrong to even refer to them as “looters.”
“Young people, they have a whole new definition for ‘looting,’” the 81-year-old congresswoman said said. “They say ‘looting’ is predatory lending in, you know, minority neighborhoods, where they’re paying 300 and 400 percent on loans by these payday lenders. … You know, on and on and on. They have a different definition for it.”

I don’t think I have ever seen Maxine Waters smile. She must be a terribly unhappy person. One can’t go through life being so bitter over policy disagreements. She is bitter because Hillary didn’t win, she is even more bitter over Trump winning the election. She is bitter over not getting her way in each & everything Trump does. The question that we each as voters have to answer is why should we have to deal with this kind of bitterness day in & day out. When Clinton won in 1992, when Obama won in 2008…….those of us who voted… Read more »
I think racist, ignorant, and stupid is a perfect description of Maxine Waters.
