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.”

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
