Yesterday, hilarious Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters informed a crestfallen nation that she would not attend the Trump inauguration saying “I don’t honor him, I don’t respect him, and I don’t want to be involved with him.”
One would be inclined to take Waters seriously except for the fact that she has “honored and respected” Cuba’s Fidel Castro in both word and deed for many years.
According to discoverthenetworks.com, “Waters has traveled several times to Cuba, where she praised dictator Fidel Castro and called for an end to the U.S. trade embargo against the Castro government.” and “On September 9, 2000, Waters was among the many people who greeted and honored Castro during his visit to Harlem’s Riverside Church.”
And for a bit of comic relief: Rep. Waters has also accused the CIA of selling crack cocaine in black neighborhoods: “It doesn’t matter whether [the CIA] delivered the kilo of cocaine themselves or turned their back on it to let somebody else do it. They’re guilty just the same.”
And this anecdote about the longtime member of the Congressional Black Caucus is an absolute hoot:
“In 1998 Waters voted in favor of a measure calling on Castro to turn over (to U.S. authorities) a female fugitive named Assata Olugbala Shakur, who had received refugee status in Havana after escaping in November 1979 from a U.S. prison — where she had been serving a life sentence for her 1973 execution-style murder of a New Jersey state trooper. After having cast the aforementioned vote, Waters learned that Shakur was actually the former Black Panther Joanne Chesimard, who had taken a new name in the early 1970s. Once Waters was aware of the fugitive’s actual identity, the congresswoman penned a letter of apology to Castro and urged the Cuban dictator to continue safeguarding the convicted killer — because the latter [had] been ‘persecuted for her civil-rights work’ in the United States.”
Rep. Waters has blessed us with some of the funniest quotes about thugs we’ve ever seen. Her boycott of Trump, on the basis he is unfit to be President, is hilarious! What a joker!
