Maxine Waters stepped in it big time when she called for confrontation in the streets.
Waters figured she would get a pass.
But Trey Gowdy shut down Maxine Waters with these four words he said on Fox News.
Two days before the jury handed in their guilty verdict against Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd, Maxine Waters crossed state lines to rile up the mob and threaten the jurors with calls for street violence if the jury acquitted Chauvin.
“We’re looking for a guilty verdict,” Waters raged. “And we’re looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd, if nothing does not happen, then we know that we’ve got to not only stay in the street, but we’ve got to fight for justice. But I am very hopeful, and I hope we are going to get a verdict that says ‘guilty, guilty, guilty.’ If we don’t, we cannot go away.”
Democrats—who claimed Trump incited an insurrection on January 6 by telling his supporters to peacefully and patriotically protest—circled the wagons around Waters and refused to admit she did or said anything wrong by inflaming an already combustible situation with calls for violence.
Trey Gowdy joined Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom” and dismissed Waters as a ridiculous figure that the American people needed to ignore.
Gowdy cited his friendship with Biden senior advisor Cedric Richmond as someone who at the very least believed in the American system of justice where the accused receives a fair trial by a jury of his peers.
“Dana, you got Cedric Richmond and so many of my colleagues I never agreed with on anything but they would say because they’re lawyers they would say let’s respect the system,” Gowdy explained. “You are welcome to disagree with the verdict but creating more innocent victims does nothing to honor the memory of George Floyd.”
Gowdy blasted Waters as a career crank with a history of inciting violence.
Back in 1992, Waters defended rioters that pillaged Los Angeles injuring nearly 2,400 people and killing 63 following a jury acquitting the police officers accused of beating Rodney King.
In 2018, Waters whipped up liberal mobs to menace and terrorize Trump officials out in public to bully the administration to end its crackdown on illegal immigration.
Gowdy said that Americans looking for answers should ignore loudmouths like Waters and instead turn their attention towards politicians offering real solutions.
“Maxine Waters has a history of speaking and saying what can only be described as crazy as hell things,” Gowdy added. “So I would tell people to turn off Auntie Maxine and focus on members of Congress who feel strongly about the justice system. Tim Scott feels strongly about the justice system. Go see if he is calling on people to confront innocent folks to prove some larger point.”
