Maxine Waters Just Put Herself in a No-Win Situation

By

Maxine Waters certainly isn’t one to hold her tongue.

The problem with loudmouths like Waters is that their flapping lips more often than not get them into trouble.

Liberals have for the past year been pointing to President Trump’s labeling of Waters as a “low IQ individual” as evidence of his supposed “racism.”

Note that Trump made absolutely no reference to Waters’ race, but simply implied that she’s not the sharpest tool in the shed.

And yet, when Waters herself recently said something similar about African-American Secretary of Housing Ben Carson, there was zero outcry from those same liberals.

From PJ Media:

After (black) Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson complained about Waters’ “lack of good manners” for failing to reply to a letter he sent her, Waters blasted Carson: “I sent him a letter, and he sent me a letter claiming that I had no manners, etc. I basically said to my staff, I really don’t have time to be bonded with somebody who does not know the difference between REO and OEO … This guy just doesn’t have the background, the capability, the intelligence to do the job. He doesn’t know what he’s doing.”

Waters argues that Carson, because he supposedly “doesn’t know the difference between REO and OEO,” lacks “the intelligence to do the job.” Why, that’s almost as embarrassing as when Waters, chair of the House Financial Services Committee, grilled seven bank CEOs on student loan debt. Waters asked, “What are you guys doing to help us with this student loan debt?” Apparently the chairwoman’s staff did not inform her that, years ago, the feds took over that business. The CEO of JPMorgan Chase replied, “When the government took over student lending in 2010 or so, we stopped doing all student lending.” Why, that’s almost as embarrassing as the letter Waters wrote to Fidel Castro urging the dictator not send back to America a New Jersey fugitive named Joanne Chesimard, a former Black Panther member who escaped from prison after being convicted of murdering a New Jersey State Highway Patrol officer. Waters claimed the escapee was persecuted and compared her to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

When a white, male, Republican politician, like Trump, questions the intelligence of a white, male, British diplomat politician, that’s just hardball. When a white, male, Republican politician, like Trump, questions the intelligence of a white, female Democrat, like Pelosi, that’s “sexism.” When a white, male, Republican politician like Trump questions the intelligence of a black female politician, that’s “racism.” When a black politician, like Waters, questions the intelligence of a black male Republican, well, that’s just hardball.

So, just because Trump said it, then it must be racist?
