In a script that can only be considered bizarre, 200 women wrote a letter to Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer criticizing them for not protecting Maxine Waters “from ‘unwarranted attacks from the Trump administration and others in the GOP.'”

The letter continued, saying “We write to share our profound indignation and deep disappointment over your recent failure to protect Congresswoman Waters from unwarranted attacks from the Trump Administration and others in the GOP,” the group of nearly 200 women wrote in a letter sent Tuesday. ‘That failure was further compounded by your decision to unfairly deride her as being ‘uncivil’ and ‘un-American.’ In doing so, we believe this mischaracterizes her call to action for peaceful democratic assembly and the exercise of her constitutional rights to free speech in support of defenseless immigrant children and their families.'”

This isn’t what Democrats need right now in their push to retake the majority in the House. The last thing they need is to be seen defending an outspoken critic of the Trump administration who has advocated for harassing members of President Trump’s cabinet.

The letter then said this:

“Disparaging or failing to support Congresswoman Waters is an affront to her and Black women across the country and telegraphs a message that the Democratic Party can ill afford: that it does not respect Black women’s leadership and political power and discounts the impact of Black women and millennial voters,” the women wrote.

Frankly, the Democrats are better off without her. Further, “failing to support Congresswoman Waters” isn’t an affront to black women across the nation. It’s common sense. Why would anyone defend the indefensible?
