Maxine Waters is doing whatever it takes to help the Democratic Party win back the House in 2018; she’s even promising financial reparations for black Americans in an attempt to motivate them to vote.
Saturday, in Selma, Alabama Maxine Waters appeared with CNN commentator Angela Rye.
Waters, who has been pushing the Trump narrative harder than just about anybody, went right after President Trump and his alleged ties to Putin and Russia.
As Waters hurled attacks and insults at Trump, she ironically called him the bully.
“He’s a bully — he has a bully mentality,” Waters said referring to President Trump.
She continued, “We need someone in the presidency who not only has good sense but understands diplomacy and understands what we need to do to have peace in this world so we can all look forward to the possibility that we’re someday going to have a world that’s about peace and justice and respect for individual liberty.”
CNN’s Angela Rye then asked “Is that your stump speech for 2020?”
Then Waters laughed while he crowd applauded. “Is she running? Is she running?” Rye asked with no response from Waters.
Then reparations talk came up, with an attendee telling Waters push for a reparations bill John Conyers had sponsored.

Later, an attendee challenged Waters to push for reparations and take up a bill John Conyers had sponsored in this House in previous sessions.
“I’d be happy to do that. That’s no problem,” Waters replied.
She then spring boarded into her agenda, “In order to get where we need to go on this issue and other issues, we really got to understand that 2018 is important in taking back the House and taking back the Senate.”
“And of course, we’ve got to get the White House back.”
She then attempted to motivate black Americans to vote with reparations, “If we want to get to the point where we can get reparations, we’ve got to have the power to do that, Number 1, by having a supportive president would be wonderful, but taking back the House would be absolutely wonderful.
“I need to take back that House so that we can have a majority in that committee,” she said, continuing her push to get people to register to vote.
