Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) isn’t backing down from Donald Trump, the Republican Party or Bill O’Reilly.
Maxine Waters was trending on Tuesday after people came to her defense after Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly make a disparaging remark about her hair. But anyone who knows about the long-tenured politician knows that it’s going to take more than a snap about her hair to keep her quiet.
In an interview with MSNBC, Waters clapped back at O’Reilly and the Republican Party for the way they’ve came at her after she spoke up the idea of impeaching President Donald Trump.
“Let me say this, I’m a strong black woman. I cannot be undermined. I cannot be thought to be a friend of Bill O’Reilly or anybody and I’d like to say to women out there everywhere, don’t allow these right-wing talking heads, these dishonorable people to intimidate you or scare you. Be who you are. Do what you do, and let us get on with discussing the real issues of this country. Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes, they have been sued by women. They’ve had to pay millions out in bonds for harassment and other kinds of things. So, we know about that checkered past, we also know that when a woman stands up and speaks truth to power that there will be attempts to put her down.”
She also explained why she doesn’t think Trump deserves to be President. Watch her entire interview below.
