We all know that Rep. Maxine Waters doesn’t like President Trump. For months, she has made headlines for her constant bashing of the president, but it looks like she has a new target.
Evidently, she’s got her name-calling aimed at famed Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz. She was heard calling the lifelong Democrat a racist, based on comments he made during a radio interview. The interview broke after special counsel Robert Mueller was impaneled a second grand jury in the investigation into the alleged collusion between Russia and Trump officials.
In the interview, Dershowitz stated that Mueller has “stacked the deck” against Trump…
“It gives the prosecutor a tremendous tactical advantage… the case now can be brought not in Northern Virginia, which is a swing area, sometimes Democrat, sometimes Republican… but the District of Columbia, which is always solidly Democratic and has an ethnic and racial composition that might be very unfavorable to the Trump Administration.”
That was the words he spoke that ultimately led to Waters accusation that he is racist.
“What he said, ‘You know all of those black people are there, and they don’t like Trump. So he’s not going to get a fair trial, so they should take it out of that jurisdiction, it shouldn’t be there, to begin with,” said Waters. “I don’t like that, and I’m surprised that Alan Dershowitz is talking like that. And we will not stand for it. We will push back against it. Because that is absolutely racist.”
Dershowitz didn’t hesitate when it came to firing back at Waters…
“Well, she doesn’t know what she’s talking about. First of all, I wasn’t talking about the grand jury. I was talking about the petty jury,” said Dershowitz. “Grand jury doesn’t matter. A grand jury will indict a ham sandwich if the prosecutor wants them to — so it doesn’t matter where the grand jury is. Maxine Waters should know better and does know better. She knows that every experienced lawyer — white, black, Asian, Latino — knows that when you’re selecting a jury, factors like ethnicity, race, and political affiliation matter. If I had said that race didn’t matter, she would have called me a racist. She throws around the term so loosely and so inappropriately, and it weakens her credibility. Being black doesn’t give you a license to call people racist any more than being Jewish gives you a license to call people anti-Semitic.”
Dershowitz’s response was well thought out commenters agreed that Waters’ didn’t have credibility…
“Waters is nothing but a racist, anti-American whack-job loon. She is a reprehensible person and a sorry excuse for a member of congress.”
“Maxine Waters needs to retire to her multi-million dollar mansion where she lives outside of the district she represents.”
“If it quacks like a duck and walks like a duck then it must be a duck. If she talks stupidly and acts stupidly then she must be stupid. If her district keeps voting for her then they must be stupid voters.”
Looks like Maxine Waters has herself a bad reputation.
