Democrats have given the job of offering their response to Trump’s state of the union address to Rep. Joe Kennedy of Massachusetts. Maxine Waters clearly wanted the job because she has decided to give a response of her own.
The Hill reports:
Maxine Waters set to respond to Trump after State of the Union
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is slated to deliver a televised address immediately following President Trump’s State of the Union speech on Tuesday.
Waters, one of Trump’s most vocal critics, will appear on “Angela Rye’s State of the Union” on BET, according to BuzzFeed News.
Rye, a Democratic strategist and commentator, is set to produce quarterly news programs for the network focused on issues affecting black Americans.
A spokesperson for BET told BuzzFeed that activists and other elected officials will join Waters to discuss the first year of the Trump presidency following his speech, and will discuss “building black politics and the value of engagement across today’s socio-political landscape.”
Waters, who is one of several Democratic lawmakers who have said they will not attend Trump’s speech on Tuesday, has consistently criticized Trump throughout his presidency, repeatedly calling for his impeachment.
Maxine’s response will probably be as crazy and far left as you can imagine. Just remember that even Democrats didn’t want her for the job. That says a lot.
