I think Maxine Waters is very confused on how she feels about Trump firing Mr. Comey.
She explained how she doesn’t think Trump made the right decision when firing Comey, but if Hillary had won the election she should have done the same. She honestly doesn’t believe Comey has any “credibility.”
“To be clear, you believe it would have been better to keep in place an FBI director who you said had no credibility to oversee this investigation than to find someone who you think would be a better choice?” Alexander asked.
“No, but I believe the president thought that,” she said.

Believe it or not but an MSNBC reporter actually did his job! He pointed out Maxine Waters hypocrisy and trapped her in the corner. Waters has been extremely critical of President Trump firing Comey. However, very recently she has called Comey incompetent. So why would she be so mad at the President firing someone incompetent? She tried to dig herself out of it but she only made it worse.
“You obviously have been very critical of James Comey in the past. You said that he had ‘no credibility,’ I assume you support the president’s decision then, to fire his FBI director,” asked the reporter. Ha!
“No, I do not, necessarily support the president’s decision. If the president had not gone all over the country praising him about the way he handled Hillary and the emails, if the president said he had confidence in him, if the president had not said he was a part of his team, then-” started Waters predictably dodging the question.
“But Congresswoman. I understand that in the past he was praising him, but if you said that FBI Director James Comey had no credibility, wouldn’t you support the fact that the president, then candidate Trump, now President Trump, made the decision to get rid of him?” asked the reporter.
“Oh no, no no no no no no! No, not necessarily, and let me tell you why. You have an investigation going on where the president is implicated, and this is a serious investigation. I’ve been trying to get people to focus on this connection with the Kremlin, and with Putin,” said Waters. Check out the video below.
