Rep. Maxine Waters may have come up with the most appropriate title to describe the environment at Fox News.
Refusing to play the victim role after Bill O’Reilly literally came for her head and said something about her hairstyle, Rep. Maxine Waters isn’t finished unleashing her wrath upon O’Reilly and his Fox News home.
In her second appearance this week on All In With Chris Haynes on MSNBC, Rep. Waters addressed a host of topics including why she doesn’t trust the White House’s decision to remove Steve Bannon from the National Security Council to why she doesn’t trust anything that comes out of White House right now, period.
She also spoke on her nemesis O’Reilly’s current situation where dozens of advertisers have pulled ads from Fox News amid learning that the anchor and network have doled out $13 million in hush money to settle sexual harassment lawsuits from five different women. That news came out just days after a group of Black women filed racial discrimination lawsuits against the network as well. Amidst the controversies, President Trump has come out in support of his friends over there.
Rep. Waters says:
Well, it’s coming out of the mouth of a man who has said horrible things about women. Don’t forget he talked about grabbing women in their private parts and because he was important, he could get away with it, and so they are two of a kind and so I’m not surprised that he stood up and tried to defend Bill O’Reilly,” the California congresswoman said to Hayes. “But, it’s all catching up with Bill O’Reilly and that sexual harassment enterprise that they created over there at Fox.”
It’s catching up with them and you have over 30 advertisers who are taking away their advertising. They’re not wanting to do business with them anymore because of the way that they have created this record of sexual harassment. They have treated women very badly, and so I understand that the Justice Department has opened a case and they’re taking a look at them because this really is a sexual harassment enterprise,” Waters said. “It shouldn’t be in America that you can sexually harass women and then buy your way out of it because you’re rich. If they continue to do this in the way that they have done, they need to go to jail. You know, the president’s over there talking about how Susan Rice needs to go to jail, they need to go to jail!
