Maxine Waters SKIPS Trump’s Speech, 1 Big Reason Was Who Melania Brought

Maxine Waters’ nickname back in her district is “poverty pimp,” and the name fits. As President Donald Trump addressed a joint session of Congress, Maxine refused to do her job and go. Maxine didn’t want to face who Melania brought along with her as a guest, and you’re going to love how we prove Maxine Waters is getting rich while she ensures her constituents stay poor and uneducated.

Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California, the ranking member on the House Financial Services Committee, told House Democrats at a caucus meeting that she would not attend the president’s speech because she doesn’t think she will be able to control herself, according to Democrats who attended.

The president is not going to say what I want him to say,” Waters told ABC News in an interview after the meeting. “He’s going to take credit for everything.” What a freaking liberal idiot Maxine is; she wasn’t elected to only attend events where her rhetoric is spewed back at her. Her rationale is completely bogus and lame.

As we have reported before, Maxine’s district includes South Central Los Angeles, also known as Watts, one of the most crime ridden, gang infested areas in the country. One person who Maxine doesn’t want to hear about is Denisha Merriweather, and it just so happens, Denisha was invited to accompany Melania with a group of others who the president honored.

Denisha is a success story of what happens when you unchain poor kids from the horrible district schools they have no choice but to attend. However, this is exactly what Maxine is against as a staunch supporter of only funding public schools, and she has voted time and time again against any school choice. Maxine, the poverty pimp, wants to keep her constituents uneducated and poor.

“It was pretty amazing,” said 25-year-old Denisha, who grew up in Jacksonville and is now a graduate student at the University of South Florida. Denisha, who spoke with the Orlando Sentinel from Washington, D.C., used the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship program to attend a private school from 6th to 12th grade, something she could never have done if she lived in Maxine Waters’ district.

Here’s why Maxine didn’t want to come face to face with Denisha; the following is Maxine’s record on education:

  • Voted NO on allowing school prayer during the War on Terror.
  • Voted NO on requiring states to test students.
  • Voted NO on allowing vouchers in DC schools.
  • Voted NO on vouchers for private & parochial schools.
  • Voted NO on giving federal aid only to schools allowing voluntary prayer.
  • Comprehensive sex ed for sexually-active adolescents.
  • Voted YES on $40B for green public schools.

Maxine Waters is actively keeping kids in horribly run public schools in the inner city. Parents should have the option to take the tax dollars allotted by the government to educate their kid and enroll their kids in the school of their choice. Why do these liberal Democrats see that as unfair?

Maxine gets her payoff by the Los Angeles Unified School District Union (LAUSD); they lobby her to vote no on all those measures we listed above and keep the kids in the ghetto with no chance to ever get out. Thank God, Denisha lived in Florida and was saved by something that is so simple — school choice.
