Following the tragic death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers, Rep. Maxine Waters has stoked the flames of racism saying President Donald Trump is the reason police officers feel they can get away with “killing black people.”
In an interview with “TMZ Live,” Waters commented on Floyd’s death at the hands of “white supremacists.”
“I’m reflecting on all of the killings of young black men in particular, but of course black women too, at the hands of the police and at the hands of these white supremacists,” she said, wearing an ill-fitting mask while in nobody’s presence.

Waters proceeded to do what she does best during the interview – abandon reason and sanity by tying President Trump, who has absolutely nothing to do with what happened in Minneapolis, to the officer’s actions.
“And I’m thinking about the way that the president conducts himself — in a way he’s dog-whistling — and I think that they’re feeling that they can get away with this kind of treatment,” she claimed with about as much evidence as she usually has to back up her arguments – none.
The President meanwhile, has tasked the FBI and the Department of Justice with investigating the case which he defines as “the very sad and tragic death” of Floyd.
“My heart goes out to George’s family and friends. Justice will be served!” Trump said.
That doesn’t sound like a man who winks and nods at law enforcement officers with a go-ahead to kill unarmed civilians.

Waters’ assertion that Trump is somehow to blame isn’t a smart take, but it’s also not an original one.
An equally intellectually challenged Joy Behar made the same assertion on “The View.”
“You know, it doesn’t help – I mean, I hate to bring Trump into this, but it doesn’t help that the president of the United States says things like, don’t be so nice,” Behar spat.
Waters’ proceeded to suggest that the police officer seen in the video kneeling on Floyd’s neck enjoyed what he was doing.
“I think that the officer who had his knee on his neck enjoyed doing what he was doing,” she said. “I believe sometimes these officers leave home thinking, ‘I’m gonna get me the one today’ — and I think this is his one that he got today.”
If you think all police officers occasionally go to work in the hopes of killing somebody, you might be a low-IQ individual.
