While giving an eulogy for Dick Gregory on Saturday, Maxine Waters, the Trump-hating California Democrat obsessed with impeachment and conspiracy theories involving Russia, used the opportunity of her speech to push Trump’s impeachment while falsely claiming the KKK and the so-called alt-right are deeply entrenched in the White House.
“I’m cleaning out the White House,” she declared to a cheering audience. “We’re going to sanitize the White House. We’re not going to take what is happening in this country.”
The American Mirror added:
“Haven’t you taken enough?” she yelled to the crowd.
“And then comes along this person,” she said with a sneer, referring to Trump.
“This person who does not respect you. This dishonorable human being who cheats everybody! This dishonorable human being who will lie at the drop of a hat.
“This dishonorable human being who has the alt-right, and the KKK and everybody else inside his Cabinet!” she bellowed to applause.
“This dishonorable human being who can criticize everybody but (Vladimir) Putin and Russia,” she added, apparently ignorant of the fact that Trump just increased sanctions on Russia last month.
“Not only are we going to clean out the White House. We’re going to take back the house that slaves built!” she exclaimed.
“When I get through with Donald Trump, he’s going to wish he had been impeached,” she said in conclusion. “I feel it very deeply — I am so offended by him and I love my people so much I’m not gonna put up with it.”
Here’s video of her unhinged rant:
Waters, the Washington Free Beacon said, “has been one of the harshest critics of Trump’s presidency, calling for Trump’s impeachment as early as three weeks after he was sworn into office. She has argued that Trump and his associates colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign.”
Waters has also questioned the patriotism of Trump’s supporters and as we reported in February, refused to condemn calls and threats to murder the president.
Waters, unfortunately, did not adopt the same tone in her speech she used in a statement on her official website commemorating Gregory, who she referred to as a “dear friend.”
“Today, I join the world in mourning the passing of my dear friend, Dick Gregory, whom I truly admired and loved. I consider Dick to be one of the most brilliant and transformative comedians the world has ever seen. Dick was unafraid to confront racism and bigotry in his performances which helped to shine a light on the injustices African Americans faced in this country, particularly in the Jim Crow South, and he is revered for breaking down barriers that prevented African American comedians from entertaining all white audiences, paving the way for African American comics today,” she wrote.
“Beyond his genius on stage, Dick was a champion for equality, often risking his own career, health, freedom, and, at times, his life in order to fight injustice and oppression. He was a prominent figure during the Civil Rights Movement, who despite his own fame, would cancel shows and risk millions of dollars to join marches, sit-ins, and other peaceful demonstrations across the country with other leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Whitney M. Young, Jr., and Rev. Jesse Jackson. However, Dick’s activism was not limited to the Civil Rights era; he was a lifelong activist, who also fought against apartheid in South Africa, the Vietnam War, police brutality, misogyny, and abuses against Native Americans. Furthermore, his intellectual curiosity inspired him to write numerous books and to vigorously research health and nutrition, which he and I spent countless hours discussing,” she added.
Her statement continued:
“Most importantly, however, I knew Dick to be a family man who was a devoted husband to his wife of more than fifty years, Mrs. Lillian Gregory, and a loving father to his surviving 10 children whom he encouraged and supported in their individual lives and careers.
“Dick will forever be remembered by fans all over the world for his talent, intellect, and unwavering commitment to justice. However, to me he was more than a world renown comedian and activist – he was my brother. I am so grateful for all of the precious memories that we have shared over the past years, especially a few months ago when I joined him in our hometown of St. Louis, Missouri, where at 84 years of age, he captivated a packed audience with his one of a kind wit, charm, and humor. Dick will certainly be missed, and my thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones during this rough time.”
And on Trump’s impeachment, no doubt… Too bad she didn’t use some of Gregory’s charm, wit and humor during her speech.
