On Wednesday, Sheriff David Clarke shredded Rep. Maxine Waters, the California Democrat obsessed with impeachment and conspiracy theories involving Russia, calling her a “carnival barker,” for praising Rep. John Conyers, the Michigan Democrat under fire for multiple allegations of sexual harassment.
“I am NOT AT ALL surprised that carnival barker Maxine Waters last week praised colleague John Conyers as having respect for women. I find it more surprising that she found time to stop her inane “Impeach 45” crusade to do it. WHAT A BUNCH OF BUFFOONS,” he tweeted.

According to the Washington Examiner:
Rep. John Conyers, newly facing sexual misconduct charges from former aides, was praised by fellow Rep. Maxine Waters just last month as a champion of women.
During an address to organizers of the national Women’s March in which she lashed out at “rape culture” and President Trump, she singled out the Michigan lawmaker for special attention.
“You know, there is a member of Congress who has been supportive of women for many, many, many years,” Waters said during her keynote speech at the Women’s Convention Sojourner Truth Luncheon in Detroit.
“He is quiet, he is confident, he is powerful, but he has impeccable integrity on all of our issues. Give John Conyers a big round of applause.”
“We’re speaking to women who are single mothers, women who work two and three jobs making minimum wage or less, women who have been exploited, harassed, or taken advantage of in their personal and professional lives,” Waters said.
“I just want to take time to focus on something that I think we need to focus on right now. It is very fortuitous that we are gathered here this afternoon in Detroit as we continue to recognize a record number of women who are boldly coming forward to reveal disturbing and grotesque acts of sexual harassment, assault and rape, often times at the hands of men who believed they were too rich and too powerful to ever be confronted or held accountable.”
Here’s video of her comments:
It now seems her words have come back to bite her…
Reaction to Clarke’s tweet was quite supportive:
They are all intertwined, protecting each other! Disgusting!

She rides on the coat-tails of what is popular – i'm surprised anyone gives her attention and just doesn't glaze over when she speaks.

According to Buzzfeed:
Documents from the complaint obtained by BuzzFeed News include four signed affidavits, three of which are notarized, from former staff members who allege that Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sexual favors, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing their hands sexually, and rubbing their legs and backs in public. Four people involved with the case verified the documents are authentic.
And, Buzzfeed added, staffers were allegedly tasked with flying in women to satisfy Conyers:
One affidavit from a former female employee states that she was tasked with flying in women for the congressman. “One of my duties while working for Rep. Conyers was to keep a list of women that I assumed he was having affairs with and call them at his request and, if necessary, have them flown in using Congressional resources,” said her affidavit. (A second staffer alleged in an interview that Conyers used taxpayer resources to fly women to him.)
And this is what Waters thinks constitutes “respect” for women…
