Rep. Waters Fires Back At Obama: Tell Him “We’re Not Complaining”

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Representative Maxine Waters has fired back at President Obama after his speech at the Congressional Black Caucus this weekend in which he told the audience to “stop complaining.”

Waters, who recently told a group of Black voters to “unleash her on Obama,” was shocked by the president’s direct comments at the Black community.

“He would never talk to the gay, lesbian, or Latino communities in that manner,” said Waters. “I’m really kind of confused as to who he’s speaking to.”

“I’m not sure who the president was addressing. I found that language a bit curious,” Waters said today. “The president spoke to the Hispanic Caucus… he certainly didn’t tell them to stop complaining and he never would say that to the gay and lesbian community who really pushed him on don’t ask don’t tell or even in a speech to APEC, he would never say to the Jewish community stop complaining about Israel.”
