Maxine Waters is at it again. During a recent interview with MSNBC weasel Chris Hayes, Rep. Maxine Waters (Dem-CA) as asked for her thoughts on Donald Trump’s interview with the New York Times, published yesterday. Waters’ opinion is that the President is anti-women and Bill O’Reilly should go to jail.
Hayes said to Waters: “The president’s saying this about Mr. O’Reilly, ‘I think he’s a person I know well – he is a good person. I think he shouldn’t have settled; personally I think he shouldn’t have settled… Because you should have taken it all the way. I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.’ What do you make of that?”
The incendiary Waters, summoning all the righteous indignation she could muster for full effect, responded that “Well, it’s coming out of the mouth of a man who has said some horrible things about women… they are two of a kind. And so I’m not surprised that he tried to stand up and defend Bill O’Reilly.
The California Senator continued her tirade: “But, it’s all catching up with Bill O’Reilly and that sexual harassment enterprise that they created over there at Fox… If they continue to do this in the way that they have done, they need to go to jail. You know the president’s over there talking today about Susan Rice going to jail.”
Yes, Ms. Waters, there is a strong argument to be made, and hopefully it will be made, that Susan Rice should go to jail for what may be described as espionnage. The President is quite right on that.
Anyway, back to Ms. Waters’ rant: “Bill O’Reilly needs to go to jail. And so, I just want you to know that the president didn’t do himself any good standing up for Bill O’Reilly. Where was Ivanka? She was supposed to be his adviser. She’s supposed to be the one that’s standing up for women. I think she either advised him wrong, or she’s absent. And she’s not in it.”
Bill O’Reilly needs to go to jail? What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty? Note to Senator Waters: People and companies settle out of court all the time to make a lawsuit go away, regardless of the merits of the case and innocence. Those with deep pockets are often magnets for lawsuits, regardless of the oftentimes frivolous nature of the allegations.
And what are we to make of Waters’ criticism of the President’s daughter and adviser Ivanka? What about Waters’ fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton? Was she standing up for women when she went behind the scenes to threaten women who might have come out with sexual misconduct allegations against her husband Bill?
