On Saturday night, the president was at the annual Gridiron Club dinner where he let loose a little bit and told a few jokes. A normal person would find that refreshing. The unhinged liberal left absolutely hates it.
Maxine Waters has been one of the most out of control liberals in Washington over the past year or so. She’s not serious. Anyone who talks about impeachment is not a serious person. So, Trump let her have it.
From Talking Points Memo:
President Donald Trump on Saturday night addressed the annual Gridiron Club Dinner, an event he skipped last year and one known for presidential humor.
Though he poked fun at his own administration’s dysfunction (“It’s been really another calm week at the White House”), Trump saved some of his sharpest lines for Democrats, including when he said of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA): “She has to immediately take an IQ test.”
A solid jab. You won’t find many conservatives who disagree with that conclusion.
Guess what Maxine’s response was? Just guess.
Yup. The race card.
From The Daily Caller:
The California Democrat did not think the joke was funny and questioned Trump’s own mental agility before accusing him of racism.
“Well, you know, this president has been called stupid, he has been called ignorant, and even his secretary of state did not deny that he called him a moron,” Waters said. “And so he has no credibility. He has been name calling, he’s been saying all kinds of things.”
“I certainly expected him to come out with some racist remarks about me,” she asserted. “So he did exactly what I expected him do. And, by the way, I’m told he wasn’t funny at all.”
Here’s the clip of Maxine.
That’s the world Democrats want us to live in. You can’t criticize a woman without being sexist. You can’t criticize a gay person without being homophobic. You can’t criticize a minority without being racist.
One of the many great things about Trump is that he doesn’t care. He knows the media won’t like him regardless of what he does. So, he says whatever he wants. It’s refreshing after so many years of politicians who are terrified of being called names.
He didn’t attack Maxine because she’s black. He attacked her because she’s an idiot.
Fair-minded people understand that.
Just look at the long list of white people Trump has criticized. It’s clearly not a race thing. He attacks anyone who gets in his way and could care less about skin color.
Only race baiters will tell you otherwise.
