WATCH LIVE: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL DAY 6

Fox News Panel Blows Up Over Maxine Waters: ‘Are You Calling Black People Clowns?!?’

Things got heated during a Friday night panel on Fox News regarding Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and her call to harass members of the Trump administration.

Conservative radio talk show host Kevin Jackson rejoiced how Democrats are “finally eating their own” since House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) condemned Congresswoman Waters’ remarks and how her supporters are criticizing the Democratic leaders for not defending her.

Jackson called Waters “strange beyond definition” and praised President Donald Trump for doing an “amazing job for blacks” in this country.

Meanwhile, State Rep. Erica Thomas (D-GA) felt a bit differently, questioning Jackson’s assertions that blacks, Hispanics, women, and millennials are “all moving towards Trump.” But when asked by Pete Hegseth why left keeps pushing identity politics, she didn’t exactly answer the question.

“I’m happy to answer the question, Pete, because she won’t,” Jackson interjected. “The reason why they play the race card is because that’s all they’ve got! Maxine Waters and the Congressional Black-I call them the ‘Congressional Black Circus Clowns,’ are driving blacks and other Democrats from the party because of the things they are doing. Maxine Waters essentially put a target on all of the Trump administration employees and said ‘It’s okay to go after these people because their opinions differ.’ That’s the crux of this whole thing. Maxine Waters and the left don’t want our opinions to be heard.”

“Kevin, are you calling black people ‘clowns?'” Thomas asked. ” Because I just heard you say that black people are clowns.”

“He was talking about the caucus,” Hegseth chimed in. “He’s talking about the caucus and their actions.”

When asked if she thought Maxine Waters is a “good representative for the modern Democratic Party,” Thomas dodged the question by slamming Schumer for “denouncing his own party member” on the Senate floor.
