Rep. Maxine Waters said young black voters gravitating towards President Trump were “shameful” and declared that if they ever show their face again she “will never, ever forgive them.”
Waters (D-CA) made the divisive comments during an interview on SiriusXM’s “The Joe Madison Show.”
“It just hurts me so bad to see blacks talking about supporting Trump. I don’t know why they would be doing it,” she said. “I don’t know why it is on their minds.”
Waters went on to accuse the President of dog-whistling to white supremacists and the KKK despite his many denunciations of such extremist groups.
“He’s a racist,” she said.
“For those black young men who think somehow they can align themselves with Trump, not only are they terrible mistaken, any of them showing their face, I will never, ever forgive them for undermining the possibility to help their own people and their own communities,” Waters complained.
Maxine Waters says she’ll “never ever forgive” black Americans who dare think different political opinions than her. She even called them “shameful.”

Democrats Like Maxine Waters Despise Black Trump Supporters
Waters’ comments, in which she essentially claims young black voters who support the President are ignorant, are eerily similar to those of the Democratic nominee running against Trump.
Joe Biden told radio host Charlamagne Tha God that anyone struggling to decide between him and President Trump in the general election “ain’t black.”
“I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black,” Biden said at the time.

House Majority Whip James Clyburn said in an interview this past weekend that “I’m going to have to pray for” any black men who dare to vote for the President.
Waters, in her interview, went on to claim any black vote for the President was “unconscionable” and “shameful.”
She went on to suggest blacks supporting Trump needed to be educated as to how others might be struggling “and how they would be able to help us in this struggle.”
Charlamagne, however, has said the President’s ability to reach out to young black voters and address their struggles is why he is becoming a more appealing option.
“Trump is talking to young black male voters, he’s directing ads toward them,” he told CNN’s Don Lemon. “They are a group that never get courted.”
“Black people don’t get courted as a whole but the old Democratic regime speaks to old black men and they think everybody else is going to fall in line,” he continued.
“They speak to older black men and think the rest of us all speak the same language.”
Now, Maxine Waters, part of the ‘old Democratic regime’ along with Biden and Clyburn, are expecting young black voters to ‘fall in line.’
Maxine’s History of Wild Comments
Maxine’s attempts to shame young black voters into submitting to the Democrat party seem ill-advised. Much of her rhetoric in the era of Trump though, has been ill-advised.
She has an extensive history of low-IQ commentary.
This past summer she accused President Trump of not wanting black people to hold positions of power in America.
Trump and his supporters “believe that it is their right and their responsibility to ensure that blacks and people of color and others do not rise to any level of influence and power,” she accused.

Waters also claimed President Trump is the reason police officers feel they can get away with “killing black people.”
She said the term “rioting” has racial connotations, then added the terms “lazy” and “criminal” are also racist.

Waters has suggested the President was okay with people dying from the coronavirus because he simply wanted to get back to “his white power pep rallies.”
Trump doesn’t care about the 80,000+ people who’ve died from #Coronavirus! He only wants to open up the economy so he can go back to having his white power pep rallies! The death & economic devastation we are facing is b/c Trump failed to act early & called #COVID19 a HOAX!

Now she’s rabidly attacking young black voters who don’t subscribe to the Democrat party’s insistence on groupthink.
Waters won’t be able to forgive a lot of black voters if a recent Rasmussen poll is any indication.

“He has no respect for [blacks],” Waters insisted. “He is not doing anything for us.”
Some black voters obviously disagree.
