Donald Trump is being BLASTED for making a RACIST joke – about Congresswoman Maxine Waters.
The news was shared by MSNBC Justice and Security Analyst, Matthew Miller on Twitter.
“Trump made an incredibly racist crack about Maxine Waters needing to take an IQ test tonight at the Gridiron, and it has barely even registered a mention in coverage of the event. An appalling moment that I can’t believe isn’t everyone’s lead takeaway.”
“He had harsh words about a number of Democratic pols, as you would expect. But the only one he singled out for needing an IQ test was Waters. And people are so used to it that the room barely even noticed. Unreal moment.”
We know that Trump doesn’t like to be called out by people of color. And he has a particularly bad taste in his mouth for Congresswoman Maxine Waters has been working hard to get the president impeached. Just last month she told California Democratic Party’s annual convention in San Diego:
“I say it is time to get ready for impeachment… I cannot wait, and I’m counting on special counsel Mueller to connect the dots […] I believe he’s getting closer to discovering what Americans were and are involved in collusion with the Russians. […]It’s absolutely appalling to learn … your many allies are all connected to the oligarchs of Russia, the Kremlin and [Russian President Vladimir] Putin.”
The speech lasted for over 20 minutes, and she wrapped it up to a thunderous applause and standing ovation.
These days, it’s hard to be surprised by anything Trump says, but racist jokes from a president should be a no-go area.
