Exclamation Maxine Waters

I can't understand the right's hatred of Rep. Waters. She's a tireless spokeswoman and advocate for her constitutents and the poor.

I theorized the other day that the erratic and crazed fear of her by the right is fueled by three facts: She's a woman, she's black, and she speaks her mind.

Of course, that doesn't keep the nuts from spreading as much fake news about her as possible.

Quote:


CLAIM
Maxine Waters told CNN that her first act if elected president would be to impeach Donald Trump.


Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-California), an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, has frequently been the target of online hoaxes that attempt to paint her lazy and ignorant, such as a fake tweet appearing to blame a terrorist attack on climate change, or an article baselessly accusing the lawmaker of missing 90 percent of her meetings.

In May 2018, another false rumor about the representative appeared, this time accusing Waters of saying that she plans to impeach Donald Trump if she is elected president of the United States:



Anderson Cooper: If elected what would your first act as president be?

Maxine Waters: Well Anderson, I would impeach Donald Trump.

This is not a genuine exchange between Waters and Cooper.Regardless, the meme was promoted on Twitter by Fox & Friendshost Brian Kilmeade on 14 May 2018, who reshared it with the caption “genius”.

It’s unclear whether Kilmeade was aware that this meme contained a fake quote, or if he cared at all. If he was aware, he made no attempt to inform his followers. As such, many people took him at his word, appearing to believe without any further proof that this had been an actual exchange on CNN:

Here's what I don't get...

If the right claims to be truthful then why do they lie all the time?

Because as long as you can convince people the truth is important to you, you can lie like ... like ... well, like our Dear Leader and get away with it freely.

Of What?

Your lack of debate skills or mad max?

So far I have not seen much of either that appear to be much more than inflated ego and hot air. But you never know.
