MSNBC reporter Peter Alexander called out Congresswoman Maxine Waters Wednesday afternoon regarding controversial statements she has made about former FBI Director James Comey.
Alexander played a video clip of comments Waters had made earlier this year, after a briefing with Comey, when she declared, “All I can tell you, the FBI director has no credibility!”
Alexander said to Waters, since she said the FBI director has no credibility, “I assume you support the President’s decision to fire his FBI director?”
Waters said, no, she did not support the president’s decision, because Trump had previously “gone all over the country praising him.”
Waters went off on a rant about the alleged “collusion” between Trump and Putin, and the investigation she is sure will ultimately lead to Trump’s impeachment.
Alexander called her out on it, pointing out the hypocrisy:
- She doesn’t support Trump for firing Comey – because she says Trump used to praise Comey.
- Waters herself said Comey is a man with no credibility – yet she’s mad because Trump fired him.
- She wants to keep in place an FBI director who she had stated has no credibility to oversee an investigation on Trump.
And the final punchline – Waters admitted if Hillary Clinton had won the White House, she “should” have fired Comey, because “of what he did to her.”
