Maxine Waters to Give Her Own Special Response to Trump SOTU

Maxine Waters to Give Her Own Special Response to Trump SOTU

“will speak at the top of a BET News special after Trump”

Rep. Maxine Waters of California has made an industry out of opposing Trump. Her constant calls for Trump’s impeachment has earned her the nickname “Auntie Maxine” from hordes of progressive youngsters.

She won’t be offering the official Democratic Party response to Trump’s state of the union address (more on that in a moment), but she will be offering her own response.

Darren Sands reports at BuzzFeed:

Maxine Waters Is Giving A National Address On BET After Trump’s State Of The Union

One of President Donald Trump’s fiercest critics on Capitol Hill will address the country just after next Tuesday’s State of the Union.

Rep. Maxine Waters, a California Democrat, will speak at the top of a BET News special after Trump delivers the State of the Union, a BET spokesperson told BuzzFeed News. The program, “Angela Rye’s State of the Union,” is part of a broader partnership announced just days ago between the network and the Democratic strategist and political commentator. Rye will executive produce news programs with a sharp focus on issues facing black Americans. The programs will run quarterly, BET said in a release.

The spokesperson said activists and some elected officials will analyze Trump’s first year in office on the program, and will talk about “building black politics and the value of engagement across today’s socio-political landscape.” A Democratic source familiar with the production on Friday night told BuzzFeed News that it wasn’t immediately clear if the program would air on Tuesday or Wednesday night.

Waters makes some of the craziest members of her party look sane, so her response should be very entertaining.

Getting back to the official Democratic Party response, that job was given to MA Rep. Joe Kennedy III. Kennedy is the great grand nephew of Senator Ted Kennedy and President John F. Kennedy. He is a child of privilege and a straight, white male. By Democrat standards, isn’t that a bit problematic?

The Boston Globe reports:

Joe Kennedy to deliver Democratic response to State of the Union address

Representative Joseph P. Kennedy III, one of the Democratic Party’s rising political stars, has been tapped by top party leaders to deliver the official Democratic response to President Trump’s State of the Union address next week.

The choice thrusts the 37-year-old, three-term congressman from Brookline into the national spotlight more squarely than he has ever been before. The job will put him on national television as the face of the Democratic Party and the voice of chief Trump critic at an extraordinary moment in the country’s politics. For many Americans, it will be their first introduction to the latest Kennedy on the political scene.

“Congressman Kennedy is a relentless fighter for working Americans,” Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a press release announcing the move. “While President Trump has consistently broken his promises to the middle class, Congressman Kennedy profoundly understands the challenges facing hard-working men and women across the country.”

Yes, I’m sure a Kennedy who went to the Buckingham Browne & Nichols school in Cambridge before attending Stanford and Harvard Law has a deep understanding of hard working men and women in America.

Most of us could write the crap that she’ll say days in advance.

No need to get all excited.

Her speech will be in BET — “Black Entertainment Television”. I’m white. Am I allowed to watch it?

DouglasJBender | January 28, 2018 at 10:24 am

“ON”!!!!!, not “in”. (Stupid smartphone.)

Well isn’t that “special”!

Will it be broadcasted in Ebonics?

I just emailed the Clinton Foundation and Hillary begging that she give a State of the Union response too.

This will be as good as watching the election returns on CNN or MSNBC. Young Turks was the best – ah delicious tears of the arrogant ignorant as their fantasy bubbles burst!

Another reason Trump should submit it in letter form. Pull the rug right out from underneath these attention whores.

    LMAO, that would be awesome. Or Make it short a sweet; “My fellow americans. The state of our union is improving. Goodnight and God Bless.” LOL.

    Though it’s not in Trumps makeup to give up camera time.

Oh wait. Is there enough time for me to make a “Trump is Reptillian Alien” dossier to give Maxine before her speech?

How did our country get to this state where we elect people like Maxine to office?

    Elimination of the property requirement for voters, probably.

    At one time, the people who actually owned pieces of the country were the ones who voted on how it would be managed.

    Not a ridiculous idea, actually.

      That, or net tax payers, rather than receivers.

      Gremlin1974 in reply to tom_swift. | January 28, 2018 at 3:25 pm

      That wouldn’t work today and would be unfair, simply because there isn’t enough land for people to own.

      My suggestion is to get government assistance, i.e. welfare, not SS retirement or medicare for those that have earned it, but those that are government dole, to get that assistance you must give up your right to vote until you are off the dole. Simple.

    Gerrymandering.

      tom_swift in reply to Milhouse. | January 28, 2018 at 1:06 pm

      But we’ve had gerrymandering since the beginning; nothing much has changed on that front. Elbridge Gerry was there from the start. He even signed the Declaration of Independence.

    It’s because of the “melting pot” it follows the same rules as any pot in cooking. Eventually the scum always rises to the top.

Has anyone asked her abouts her cultural appropriation of the Caucasian hairstyles she wears?

Mr. Chairman, we do not have a crisis at Freddie Mac, and in particular at Fannie Mae.

Trump is already touting black unemployment figures. You can bet he will tie this to the drop in illegal immigration.

Dogs to their vomit, democrats to a Kennedy.

Maxine reminds me of Elizabeth Warren, vacuous, fatuous and devoid of relevance. Nasty, too.

A Kennedy will be giving the Democrat response? Will he be sober? His name is Kennedy.

“Auntie-intellectual” would be a more apropos name for her.

I’ll be sure to set my DVR.

So a racist psychopath is going to give a rambling delusional diatribe on the most racist channel to hit the airwaves.

    “Racist psychopath is going to give a rambling delusional diatribe on the most racist channel to hit the airwaves.”

    That is probably going to be the actual program description in TV Guide.

    Which is why the likes of Hawaii air raid warden jamie lee curtis will be sure to have her and her children tuning in to know what to think the next day.

Good. He and fellow fake oath-taker ruth ginsberg can enjoy their stupidity circle jerk.

Trump should offer to go on BET after Watters and give a special SOTU address for blacks, explaining that he is on the side of law abiding blacks while Watters and Black Lives Matter are on the side of criminal blacks, which is the worst possible thing for blacks.

When Guiliani was his advisor he said the plan was to allocate law enforcement by crime rate. If Trump can succeed in that blacks will finally live as safe as other people and the Democrats (the party of slavery and Jim Crow) will never win another election.

If he goes on BET Trump can also note that Watters invented the “knockout game,” telling black gang members after the L. A. riots that they should be going to white neighborhoods and attack whites instead of attacking each other and destroying black neighborhoods. She is a fomenter of race war, and it is a great stain on her district that they keep electing this monster to Congress.

As hillary klinton personifies corruption and incompetence, and barack obama personifies treason, maxine waters personifies dumbass.

James Brown won’t be available to comment about the theft of his hair.

Perhaps I can self-identify as black, at least for the duration if her speech.

DouglasJBender | January 28, 2018 at 6:09 pm

“OF”!!!!!, not “if”

I don’t think it’s right to put the mentally ill and developmentally delayed on public display like this. It invites mockery.

I am Maxine’s speech writer. Here is a preview of her speech,

“Impeach Foaty Five, Impeach Foaty Five”.
