Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) on Wednesday eviscerated the Bill O’Reillys and Donald Trumps of the world, promising the day will come when rich persons, rich men, won’t be able to buy their way out of this criminal activity.”

Waters said she’s “very proud” of what took place at Fox News with O’Reilly’s ouster, adding it appears Rupert Murdoch’s sons Lachlan and James orchestrated the move. “They’re trying to take this station into a new era,” Waters said.

“I’m proud of the advertisers who decided that they were going to pull their ads from his show,” Waters continued. “I’m so pleased with the women who came forward, who were victims and decided they were going to expose what had happened to them.”

“Bill O’Reilly is not going to be recorded favorably in history,” Waters promised, insisting there appears to be “something wrong with him psychologically.”

“It’s all his fault,” Waters added.

“This is an era of women who are fed up with being taken advantage of, particularly in the workplace,” the congresswoman noted. “We’ve been hearing about this for years.”

Asked by CNN’s Anderson Cooper if she stands by her assertion that O’Reilly should go to jail, considering Donald Trump doesn’t think O’Reilly did anything wrong, Waters said she could care less about what Trump thinks about sexual harassment.

“You can’t pay any attention to what the president says,” Water argued. “They’re cut from the same cloth. They’re two of the same kind.”

“For the President of the United States of America to stand up for a man who spent 13 million dollars in settlements—even though he claims he’s done nothing wrong, certainly he didn’t spend all of that money and make these settlements because he was innocent—and this president knew that, but this is the way the president himself has been accused of acting with women,” Waters said.

“Let me just say this,” Waters continued. ”The day will come when rich persons, rich men won’t be able to buy their way out of this criminal activity. And they will go to jail and they should go to jail.”

Kanye ripped for latest Trump defense: Always someone willing to write a check to ‘a black person defending white supremacy’

Kanye West hugging Trump

A panel discussion on recent concerts put on by Kanye West in Salt Lake City and Howard University turned to his new recent comments he made defending his support for Donald Trump -- with one panelist saying the rapper is getting paid on the side for siding with the president.

Speaking with host Kendis Gibson, guests Danielle Moodie-Mills and Clay Cane were harshly critical of West trying to drum up black support for the president as well as his recent comments on slavery.

"What is going on here?" Gibson began. "So you saw the pictures of Kanye West in the middle of Salt Lake City. He drew about 10,000 people here at Howard University, it was a smaller crowd because they didn't get the e-mail about it until 6:00 a.m. on homecoming weekend. Largely, a lot of people who are going to these shows are black folks. These are some of the scenes in Salt Lake City, so people are wondering: is he sort of like Trump's secret weapon, a secret outreach to the black community? "

Here are 3 moves a desperate Trump will likely attempt in order to cling to power

Published

on

In a column for the Daily Beast, political observer Micheal Tomasky speculated -- and not without good reason -- that a frantic Donald Trump will do anything to remain in office and thereby avoid being slammed with criminal indictments once he departs the Oval Office for good..

As the columnist explained, impeachment seems inevitable and the president will likely take desperate measures and that he has already given hints about three paths he may take -- if not all of them.

Tomasky wrote, "It’s foolish to say that Trump thinks ahead about anything. The late journalist Wayne Barrett said many true things about Trump, but the truest ever was when he observed that Trump says whatever will get him through the next 10 minutes," before adding, "People around him of course are more strategic and are thinking ahead. And they’re all saying and doing and writing things right now that will, if the opportunity presents itself, pave the way for Trump to burn the Constitution."
