Maxine Waters suggests POTUS pardoned Arpaio because Trump part of KKK

In a tweet issued Saturday morning, Maxine Waters, the unhinged Trump-hating California Democrat obsessed with impeachment and conspiracy theories involving Russia, suggested on Twitter that the president pardoned former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio because he’s part of the KKK.

“I’m not surprised Trump pardoned racial profiler Arpaio. White Nationalists, KKK, & Duke celebrated Trump’s election b/c he is one of them!” she said on Twitter.

Breitbart reported:

After Charlottesville, Waters called the White House the “white supremacists’ house.”

She has also been leading the charge to impeach Trump, saying that she is “not running for anything except the impeachment of Trump,” revealing she and other Democrats are “organizing” to bring Trump down, and leading crowds in “impeach 45” chants

Naturally, Waters’ insane liberal base agreed, but others hammered the California Democrat on Twitter.

“We’re not surprised when you say another idiotic thing. Because you’re an idiot,” one person said.


Others called Waters out for her hypocrisy.

“Obama commuted over a thousand felons on his way out but that’s okay,” another person said.

“When did become a Democrat? I must have missed that. Was it Trump that spoke at Dukes funeral?? NOPE it was Bill Clinton the rapist,” added a third critic.

Waters used the pardon to continue pushing her insane Russia conspiracy theories, The Hill reported:

In a subsequent tweet, Waters hinted that the pardon signals “an act of desperation” during the ongoing special counsel investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.

“Trump knows the walls are closing in on him & Russia collusion. His actions this week are acts of desperation. Ultimately, Congress must act,” Waters wrote in the tweet.

And she wasn’t the only one, The Hill added:

Waters’ last tweet mirrors statements from other Democrats on Friday and Saturday who speculated that Trump was sending a signal to allies at the center of the Russia investigation that he rewards loyalty with pardons.

Fellow California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff posted similar tweets Saturday afternoon.

“Arpaio action was appalling & political. It also sends [a] message to witnesses in Russia investigation to keep quiet, stay loyal [and] get pardon,” Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said in a tweet on Saturday.

The Daily Caller said:

Arpaio was convicted in July of criminal contempt for defying a federal court order to stop detaining individuals suspected of being in the country illegally. The former Arizona sheriff is known for his tough-on-crime stance and supported Trump during the presidential campaign.

Trump hinted at the pardon during a Tuesday rally in Phoenix where he said: “So was Sheriff Joe convicted for doing his job? I’ll make a prediction. I think he’s going to be just fine. Okay?”

In a statement, the president praised Arpaio’s years of service: “Throughout his time as Sheriff, Arpaio continued his life’s work of protecting the public from the scourges of crime and illegal immigration.  Sheriff Joe Arpaio is now eighty-five years old, and after more than fifty years of admirable service to our Nation, he is worthy candidate for a Presidential pardon.”

Waters, by the way, has yet to condemn threats to murder the president and his supporters.
