Maxine Waters Brings Culture and Civility Back to Our Public Discourse
Feb 22, 2017
RUSH: So here’s Maxine Waters adding to the culture and the civility of our public discourse. I’m looking for the audio sound bite even now. Grab number 13 and number 14. This was last night on a cable network, and she was discussing Trump’s relationship with the Russians. You know, Trump worked with the Russians to steal the election, is what the Democrats think. You know why they think that? Because Trump cracked a joke.
There were 33,000 missing Hillary emails. Nobody could find them. She claimed she deleted them. She handed over 30,000 to the State Department. They had them. They analyzed them. There are 30,000 she deleted. But people claimed that they had them. Like Kim Dotcom and there were others, that claimed they knew where they were, but nobody could produce them. And so Trump at a press conference personally asked the Russians to get involved in the search.
He said, “Maybe the Russians could find those emails — and if the Russians find ’em, please give them to the media.” Well, I don’t know how you get there from here, but the media then reported that Trump was encouraging the Russians to hack the Hillary campaign and produce the evidence to the media. They had no sense of humor about it. That’s why Maxine Waters and others think that Trump and the Russians were working together to hack the election. Here what she said first…
WATERS: (shouting) Why do you think they hacked into our election? Because they have to make sure that Donald Trump got elected so that he could help them with what I think is a huuuuge deal, not only to lift these sanctions, but to take over, y’know, all of these Soviet countries and pull ’em back into the Soviet Union, so that they could have access it to all of these resources. It’s clear to me! I just think the American people had better understand what’s going on. This is a bunch of scumbags. That’s what they are!
RUSH: (laughing) So there we have, a Democrat Party once again adding to the civility of the discourse, Maxine Waters claiming that Trump and his people are scumbags ’cause Trump wants to help Putin put the Soviet Union back together by raping a bunch of other countries and stealing their resources. And so she was then questioned. “Those are very strong words, Congresswoman. Who do you mean by that? When you call them ‘scumbags,’ who are you talking about?”
WATERS: All of these people who are organized with these oil-and-gas interests —
REPORTER: You mean…?
WATERS: — that’s in the administration and friends of the —
REPORTER: Y-you calling secretary —
WATERS: — president of the United States, these back channeling that you see. These are a bunch of scumbags. That’s what they are.
REPORTER: You mean the secretary of state of the United States?
WATERS: Tillerson is there to get these sanctions lifted. I believe it. Just watch him! He’s gonna continue to work on it. This is important for him. He was there because he negotiated the deal for Exxon with Putin.
RUSH: What deal? What deal is she talking about? Tillerson’s done a lot of deals. Trump’s done a lot of deals, but she’s got a deal in mind that Tillerson negotiated with Putin. Putin is there, or Tillerson’s there to lift the sanctions. (laughing) “They’re just a bunch of scumbags.” I think you know what’s new about this the Democrat Party not liking the Russians. That’s a first. The Democrat Party not liking the idea the Soviet Union back together. The Democrat Party loved the Soviet Union! The Democrat Party in the eighties and the seventies propped up the Soviet Union.
The Democrat Party of the 1980s chose the Soviet Union over Ronald Reagan, in Nicaragua, and in Moscow as well. Now, all of a sudden, they don’t like Russia and they don’t like the Soviet Union?
