Waters: Trump advisers with Russia ties are 'scumbags'
Maxine Waters on Trump advisers: "This is a bunch of scumbags. That's what they are, who are all organized around making money." http://on.msnbc.com/2lt5jZ2Posted by MSNBC on Tuesday, February 21, 2017
When Rep. Maxine Waters appeared on MSNBC's All In with Chris Hayes on Feb. 21, she certainly didn't hold back her views on President Donald Trump. After commenting that she thinks "the American people had better understand what's going on," the California congresswoman cut to the chase and called Trump's cabinet "a bunch of scumbags who are all organized around making money." When Chris Hayes asked Waters to clarify exactly who she was referring to, she said, "People who are organized with these oil and gas interests" in Trump's administration and any of his associates with ties to Russia.
Many people online were quick to praise her comments:
Maxine Waters called DT & his cronies 'scumbags'. On National Tv. Twice. Ya'll better listen & EMPOWER Black Women. 💅🏾— Reagan Gomez (@ReaganGomez) February 22, 2017
