For decades this crackpot has represented the far-left, kook fringe extreme of the Democratic Party. Now that the entire party has gone kook fringe, she’s basically the face of the party.
So please, angry, crazy woman, just keep talking.
Fox News host Bill O’Reilly may have apologized for saying Maxine Waters had a “James Brown wig,” but Wednesday night the California congresswoman performed the big payback.
“Bill O’Reilly needs to go to jail,” Waters said in an interview on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, in which she also called O’Reilly’s network a “sexual harassment enterprise.”
Clearly she doesn’t understand how our laws work. Say what you will about O’Reilly, and we have little use for him, alleged sexual harassment doesn’t result in jail time.
O’Reilly, whose comments about Water’s hair were widely condemned, is currently in the media spotlight after The New York Times reported that he and Fox paid five women $13 million to settle harassment or other allegations against the star pundit. Advertisers have been fleeingThe O’Reiilly Factor since the allegations surfaced.
The report about O’Reilly comes less than a year after Fox News’ former chairman Roger Ailes was ousted following a sexual harassment lawsuit.
Waters comments came in response to a question about President Trump’s defense of O’Reilly.
“I don’t think Bill did anything wrong,” Trump told The New York Times. “I think he shouldn’t have settled; personally I think he shouldn’t have settled.”
“It’s coming out of the mouth of a man who has said some horrible things about women,” Waters said of Trump’s comments. “Don’t forget he talked about grabbing women in their private parts, and because he was important, he could get away with that.”
Waters said Trump and O’Reilly “are two of a kind.” She went on to say “it’s all catching up with Bill O’Reilly and that sexual harassment enterprise that they created over there at Fox.”
Waters has been a notorious racist for decades, but in the current climate, the media will put a microphone in front of any lunatic to spew their vile hatred. Bizarrely, this crank calls herself ‘Auntie’ on Twitter:

Naturally, the knuckle-draggers replying all feel the same way.
