CNN Analyst Defends Maxine Waters, Suggests Democrat Leaders Are Racist

Ryan Saavedra, Daily Wire, June 27, 2018


Appearing on CNN’s “OutFront” with host Erin Burnett, [CNN political commentator Angela] Rye quickly moved to suggest that the reason that Waters was being criticized by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was racism.

“My point is very simple: I demand that people stop requiring Congresswoman Waters to behave in one way while everybody else can do something else,” Rye said. {snip}

“The fact that Chuck Schumer called what a black woman said un-American is problematic and this is the reason why Democrats have a hard time uniting the base,” Rye continued. {snip}

Rye later added: “It has everything to do with race.”
