Rep. Maxine Waters got the beatdown of a lifetime — and by someone in her own party.
Harvard lawyer and moderate Democrat Alan Dershowitz was accused of being “absolutely racist” by the outspoken California congresswoman after his comments regarding special counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury, saying that it would, in effect, have an “ethnic and racial composition” that would not suit President Trump and his administration.
“Being black doesn’t give you a license to call people racist any more than being Jewish gives you a license to call people anti-Semitic,” Dershowitz told Abby Huntsman on “Fox and Friends Weekend.”
He continued in his attack on Waters: “She doesn’t know what she’s talking about. First of all, I wasn’t talking about the grand jury. I was talking about the petty jury. Grand jury doesn’t matter. A grand jury will indict a ham sandwich if the prosecutor wants it to.”
Dershowitz then delivered a knockout blow, exposing Waters lack of knowledge and frequent tantrums.
“If I had said that race didn’t matter, she’d have called me a racist,” Dershowitz continued. “She throws around the term so loosely and so inappropriately, and it weakens her credibility just by calling everybody a racist by calling me a racist, when she calls real racists racists, nobody is going to believe her.”
