On Sunday, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., is set to speak at a Democrat Party event in New Hampshire, causing some to speculate that she might actually make a run for the White House in 2020. She told the Daily Caller on Thursday that her visit has nothing to do with any potential White House run, but said she would run if millennials want her to.
“I’m just going up to do a county Democratic thing. That’s all,” she said.
I’m not running for anything but my own seat. I don’t have any presidential aspirations,” she said when pressed by the Daily Caller. “If the millennials want me to do it, I’d do it, though.”
“According to an invitation obtained by New Hampshire’s WMUR, Waters is set to be in the state on Sunday for a picnic scheduled to be at the Miller Farm in New Durham, where she will be around members of the Strafford County Democratic Committee,” the Daily Caller reported.
On Wednesday, New York City Magazine ran an interview with Waters entitled, “Maxine Waters Is Learning From Millennials.”
Waters told the magazine she has a right to be angry.
“There’s a history of enslaved African-Americans having to make their slave masters comfortable,” Waters said. “This business of what we call skinning and grinning — that is something African-Americans are very much cognizant of.”
Waters also said of the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election: “I think [Trump is] in for new possibilities of either being charged criminally or, as I think, impeached.”
“Maxine understands the people,” Watkins said as his #5 reason.
“Number 4, Maxine Waters has an amazing reputation of being a fearless, outspoken advocate for women, the poor, children, people of color — pretty much everybody that was left out of the Trump campaign,” he said.
Watkins said #3 is because of her opposition to the war in Iraq.
“That’s something that (Hillary) Clinton, (George W.) Bush, (Donald) Trump, (John) McCain, all of those people couldn’t really figure out,” he said.
Watkins said Waters “loves the Millennials and we love her back,” he said.
His justification was that Waters’ is “learning our language and using the internet.”
Watkins’ number one reason?
“She’s not afraid to attack the right,” he said.
As we and others have noted, Waters has even questioned the patriotism of Trump supporters and refuses to condemn death threats against the president and his supporters.
“These are tough times and in tough times we need a tough leader,” Watkins added. “That’s why I nominate Maxine Waters to be our next president.”
