Maxine Waters calls some Trump administration officials a “bunch of scumbags”
I still remember the time not all that long ago when Democrats were all up in arms at the attacks Barack Obama was taking from the right on a daily basis. Some of the so-called attacks were legitimate but the ones that really irritated the left were the personal attacks–such as the “birther” issue and the “Obama is a Muslim” issue. Some compared Barack Obama to Hitler and called him a Fascist and we were told this was way beyond the line–the office of the President should be honored even if the man is not. Of course many of these same people compared George Bush to Hitler and called him a Fascist but let that go…
Apparently times have changed because now it is en-vogue to call the President a Fascist and compare him to Hitler and we see it on a daily basis. Now Maxine Waters has entered the fray with a personal attack on Donald Trump’s cabinet members–calling them all “scumbags.” Here is more:
“It`s clear to me, and I just think the American people had better understand what`s going on,” said Waters on the MSNBC on Tuesday evening. “This is a bunch of scumbags. That`s what they are.”
Chris Hayes asked, “Who do you mean when you call them scumbags? Who are you talking to — about?” Waters then said, “All of these people who are organized with these oil and gas interests that`s in the administration, and friends of the president of the United States.”
She continued, “This back-channeling that you see. These are a bunch of scumbags.”
The double standard abounds! Suddenly personal attacks are okay now that a Republican is in the White House. Many on the right are up in arms about these comments from Maxine Waters but I have to admit I am enjoying the unraveling of the left. The left is suffering from what is now being dubbed Post Election Stress Disorder (PESD) and this is yet another example.
The left is becoming unhinged and they are out of touch with the average American person–that is why Donald Trump won the rust belt states–and because of this they are overplaying their hand in an attempt to secure their alt-left base and it could be their undoing if they continue on this path.
