"When conservative Fox News host Bill O`Reilly was asked during an appearance on `Fox & Friends` to comment on U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters` impassioned remarks about President Donald Trump`s policies, O`Reilly said he hadn`t heard a word she`d said because of her `James Brown wig.`"
When I turn on a cable news channel and I hear Donald Trump`s belligerent, bellicose and infantile rhetoric I tune him out. Maxine Waters can match Trump insult for insult, when I hear her rant on TV I also quickly tune her out.
When I looked up the video on YouTube where Waters was blasting Trump`s policies, I was also distracted by her ridiculous James Brown wig.
James Brown is probably spinning in his grave, and screaming: I may have died over a decade ago, but I still look better than Waters, old hag better take that damn wig off.
Trump`s unique hair has been brutally mocked by comics, pundits, and politicians, but you don`t hear conservatives scream ageism or sexism. It`s almost impossible to watch CNN or MSNBC for more than an hour without hearing a journalist or a politician ridicule trump`s hair, skin complexion or tiny hands, but criticize a black woman`s hair and you`re treated like a racist and sexist pariah.
I`m sure Maxine`s skin is as thick as her James Brown wig, we should stop patronizing her and treating her like a fragile little thing.
O`Reilly`s joke is par for the course in the tough world of politics, Maxine doesn`t need any help dealing with obnoxious political commentators or snarky bloggers.
