Representative Maxine Waters claimed right-wing conservatives in the House of Representatives are “domestic terrorists.”
During Saturday’s edition of MSNBC’s “Ayman,” Anchor Ayman Mohyeldin asked waters: “I know that politicians tried to sound optimistic as much as they can but right now, with the leadership that we see in the House, is there any path forward for police reform in Congress after this later on tragic killing?”
“It is the Marjorie Taylor Greene Republican caucus.”
“You heard what McCarthy said. He said that he just loves her and that he is going to do everything he can to protect her and that she is saying in so many ways that I owe him,” she said.
“So I don’t expect anything from them. We are going to try to do everything that we possibly can,” Waters added.
“But I think that the average American person can see what is going on. We have these right-wing conservatives who are, you know, we have domestic terrorists in the House of Representatives,” Water continued.
“These people are extremists, so I am not optimistic that that is the way that it is going to happen until the people of this country really decide that they do not want it, and they are not going to elect people who act in the way that they act.”
Waters also dismissed Senator Kyrsten Sinema as ‘that woman from Arizona’ while blasting some congressional Democrats for not caring about police reform in the wake of the death of Tyre Nichols.
As The Daily Mail reported, Maxine Waters slammed the former Democrat-turned-independent, as well as moderate and often swing-vote Democrat Senator Joe Manchin, for not ‘giv(ing) a darn’ about police reform legislation.
“When you look at even two Democrats – Manchin of course, and of course that woman from Arizona – they don’t give a darn about this issue,” she said.
“They would rather have the power to determine what happens in the Senate by using their two votes for themselves than anything else,” she added.
