Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters trashes Trump: ‘I don’t believe anything Donald Trump says’

Published

on

California Rep. Maxine Waters (D) told MSNBC on Thursday that she doesn’t believe a word that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth because he has made so many inflammatory and contradictory statements on the campaign trail.

In an interview with anchor Thomas Roberts, Waters said, “Well, the election has taken place and we have to wait and see who this man is and what he’s going to do. I don’t believe anything that Donald Trump says.”

“He has lied and distorted information throughout this campaign. I want to know when he’s going to show us his taxes,” Waters went on. “I want to know when is he going to reimburse all of those students who got ripped off up at the Donald Trump University. I want to know when he’s going to apologize to the disabled journalist about mocking him in front of the children of America. I’ve never seen anything like this.”

“So, are we going to work with him?” she asked. “Which Donald Trump are we working with? If it’s the same Donald Trump that has shown himself throughout the campaign, then I don’t want any part of it.”

As climate crisis-fueled fires rage, fears grow of an ‘uninhabitable’ California

Published

on

As activist Bill McKibben put it, "We've simply got to slow down the climate crisis."

With wildfires raging across California on Wednesday—and with portions of the state living under an unprecedented "Extreme Red Flag Warning" issued by the National Weather Service due to the severe conditions—some climate experts are openly wondering if this kind of harrowing "new normal" brought on by the climate crisis could make vast regions of the country entirely uninhabitable.
