Velshi lectured, “I wish to discuss to [Waters] about what she simply stated, Donald Trump’s protection attorneys are literally going to invoke her and others and issues that they’ve stated to say that they too have been invoking rioting or violence. That is not really the case.” 

It’s not the case? Velshi performed the video of Waters in 2018 screaming at a crowd: 

Let’s be sure we present up wherever we have now to point out up and when you see anyone from that cupboard in a restaurant, in a division retailer, at a gasoline station, you get out and also you create a crowd! And also you push again on them! And also you inform them that they don’t seem to be welcome anymore wherever! 

 

 

That is semantics. In the identical means it may be argued that Donald Trump inspired his supporters to riot, Waters steered that liberals encompass individuals at a fuel station and “create a crowd.” What did she suppose would occur? 

Nonetheless, Velshi demanded of the far-left Democrat: “That is the stuff that Donald Trump’s attorneys say proves that you simply and others are doing the identical factor Donald Trump was doing on January sixth and within the days earlier than that. What is the distinction?” 

Waters responded with a lame protection, suggesting, “They are going to attempt it however nothing any Democrat that I do know of have ever stated or acted in the best way the president of the US has acted.” 

Velshi pushed again, noting, “So let me simply ask you as a result of that is what they will say. Are you able to say that you haven’t glorified or inspired violence towards Republicans?”
