The Democrats have been trying their best to milk big money out of the world of politics for some time now. Their ambitions are craven to say the least. Now, Maxine Waters is making these ambitions even more clear with her most recent statements. She went on national television and made one of the most audacious claims that we have ever heard.
According to her, the wealthy need to be given more influence over the primary process. California needs to have more sway because of all the money that is being generated by the Beverly Hills fat cats. This is the type of story that you simply cannot make up. We cannot believe that Waters was willing to peddle this kind of retrograde nonsense.
The same Democrats who will decry the influence of the rich when it suits them are still going to get behind this, though. In her mind, the candidates who are flying out to California should get some form of preferential treatment. Since they are supplying these candidates with all of the funding that they need to run their campaigns, Waters thinks that they need to have more say.
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon:
Maxine Waters: California Should Have More Say Over Primary Process Because of Its Rich Donors and Fancy Parties
Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) said that California should have more influence over the Democratic primary process because the state has so many wealthy donors.
āWe have candidates who fly out to Los Angeles from everywhere to raise money,ā Waters said Thursday on CNBC. āYou would have two, three, four at a time in Beverly Hills having dinners and some of our contributors, who are very rich, were holding fancy parties, trying to accommodate the requests for donations and contributions.ā
āThe thinking is that if we are supplying tremendous dollars to candidates, we ought to have more say,ā she added.
That’s convenient, right? Waters clearly has no idea how terrible this sounds. Who is going to be the one to tell her? We just want to be there when this conversation unfolds. No one should be sitting idly by and letting her sell this kind of rhetoric to a voter base. The left needs to get as mad about this one as they get about everything else.
In a world where it seems like the left is getting mad about something on an everyday basis, their silence on this one has become deafening. One of our favorite tweets on this matter is comparing the state of California to Mike Bloomberg. This comparison is so beautiful, we wish that we would have thought of it ourselves.

She says she thinks CA should "have more say" in Dem primary b/c of all the money rich people in Beverly Hills give Dems during āfancy partiesā and big money fundraisers.pic.twitter.com/HKPB2PuUFW

The Democrats’ desperation to turn the political tide is leading them in crazy directions. They are willing to go against all of their morals, just for a win. The saddest part of all is that they are not even guaranteed a victory. The Democrats are doing all of this just to have a fighting chance. It’s no wonder that the Trump campaign is already on record as saying that they have no fear.
Trump’s favorite candidate is Bernie and they are not even afraid of him. That is probably because that the party will simply kneecap Bernie as soon as he gets anywhere near the nomination. From there, Trump will simply get to walk over any moderate that they choose to place in his path. It is all so predictable, isn’t it?
Waters is providing us with top quality entertainment in the interim, at least. It’s like she has lost all sense of self awareness. Maxine does not even realize that she is putting down other states in her quest to chase after the money. We are willing to bet that the people who reside in New Hampshire and Iowa are watching her comments with great interest.
The rich elite Democrats should get the power…not the poor Iowans…they dont even throw the big parties we do

California, the Mike Bloomberg of primary states.

Love how she puts down Iowa and New Hampshire. I am sure that the representatives from those states would love to have a chat with her.

an embarrassment every time she opens her mouth

Good luck getting everyone to go along with the “vote blue no matter who!” slogan with this kind of silliness going on. Democrats like these continue to embarrass themselves over and over again. We wish that they could see how ridiculous they sound on their own but on the other hand? It is fun to watch them flail around like this.
The amount of unintentional comedy that is going to take place over the next few months is going to be amazing. The election should be treated like a serious matter but how can we act like it is when the Democrats are providing us with this much material? Waters is sure to think better of this at some point, though.
By then it is going to be too late. We all know the pattern and how it works. The Democrats say something without thinking, everyone reacts to and they issue a sheepish apology. It’s been done time and time again. It’s a process that the entire nation is all too familiar with and that’s why Trump is probably going to waltz to a second term.
We do not wish to jinx him but with the Democratic party in such shambles, it is hard to see who would worry him. In the meantime, please take a moment to share this insane story with your friends and loved ones. They are definitely going to appreciate the latest bout of Democratic tomfoolery. We know that we sure did!
