Democrats like to accuse Donald Trump of pretty much anything and there are things that they probably would like to accuse him of but haven’t found a way that even looks remotely possibly to the sickest of their followers.
I would be willing to bet that if three days from now Donald Trump walked out of his front door and held a press conference indicating that he had cured all forms of cancer, Democrats would accuse him of crippling the pharmaceutical industry.
Now, there are some things that people take totally out of context when they hear something. When what happened at the Capitol last month took place, there were a lot of people that horrifically took his statements out of context. To get him in trouble for that would be like suing a bar in Montana for a drunk driving accident that took place in Hawaii.
Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California said Tuesday that former President Donald Trump should be charged with “premeditated murder” because of what she claims is his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol incursion.
Much of Waters’ appearance on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” with host Joy Reid focused on the day of the Capitol incursion, during which Waters claimed she hid in her office.
“Yes, we are threatened. But we can’t back off,” Waters said. “We’ve got to fight as hard as we can to see to it that there’s some justice.”
Waters concluded her interview with an attack on Trump, whose impeachment she sought from the start of Trump’s presidency.
Waters claimed that the rioters who surged chaotically through the Capitol were actually part of a grand plan.
“They are following the president of the United States of America, who had advance planning about the invasion that took place in our Capitol,” Waters said.
“Even there’s information that some of the planning came out of individuals working in his campaign,” she said.
“As a matter of fact, he absolutely should be charged with premeditated murder because of the lives that were lost with this invasion, with this insurrection,” Waters said.
“For the president of the United States to sit and watch the invasion and the insurrection and not say a word because he knew that he had absolutely initiated it — and as some of them said, ‘He invited us to come. We’re here at the invitation of the president of the United States.”
