Dems Play Damage Control After Mad Maxine Calls for Harassment of Trump Officials

Published

on

After several officials in President Donald J. Trump’s administration were harassed in public over the past week, Democrat lawmakers are calling for restraint after Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) encouraged more of the same behavior.

“In the crucial months ahead, we must strive to make America beautiful again,” wrote Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Twitter. “Trump’s daily lack of civility has provoked responses that are predictable but unacceptable. As we go forward, we must conduct elections in a way that achieves unity from sea to shining sea.”

The condemnation comes after Waters’ inflammatory MSNBC interview Sunday.

“And I want to tell you,” she said in the interview, “for these members of his Cabinet who remain and try to defend him, they’re not going to be able to go to a restaurant, to be able to stop at a gas station, to be able to shop at a department store. The people are going to turn on them, they’re going to protest, they’re going to absolutely harass them until they tell the president: ‘No, I can’t hang with you.’ ”

On Saturday, Waters has echoed a similar tune during a rally.

“The American people have put up with this president long enough. What more do we need to see? What more lies do we need to hear?” she yelled. “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them!”

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielson was chased out of a Mexican restaurant last week, as was senior Trump advisor Stephen Miller. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was refused service at a Lexington, VA restaurant Saturday.

Boston Public Schools Suspend Advanced Classes for Fourth Through Sixth Graders Because of “Racial Inequities”

Citing the pandemic and “racial inequities,” Boston Public Schools has suspended enrollment in an advanced class program for fourth, fifth, and sixth graders.

The program is called Advanced Work Classes, and superintendent Brenda Cassellius has said it will go on a one-year hiatus.

There’s been a lot of inequities that have been brought to the light in the pandemic that we have to address,” Cassellius told GBH News. “There’s a lot of work we have to do in the district to be anti-racist and have policies where all of our students have a fair shot at an equitable and excellent education.”

Students already in Advanced Work Classes will be able to stay enrolled and continue their work, but for at least one year there will be no new fifth- or sixth-grade students admitted to the program. Fourth-grade students will be admitted “by standards to be determined at the school level.”

80 percent of all Boston public school students are either Hispanic or black, but 70 percent of the students enrolled in Advanced Work Classes are either white or Asian.

School Committee member Lorna Rivera was quoted as saying “this is just not acceptable,” adding that she’s “never heard these statistics before” and is “very, very disturbed by them.”

Superintendent Cassellius also claims that interest in Advanced Work Classes has waned over the years and that only five schools in the district had been offering them.
