Maxine Waters smears Kyrsten Sinema as ‘that woman from Arizona,’ as riot aftermath is revealed

U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) dismissively referred to Senator Kyrsten Sinema (I-Ariz.) as “that woman from Arizona” during an appearance on MSNBC, accusing her of not backing police reform in the wake of Tyre Nichols being beaten to death by five black police officers in Memphis, Tennessee.

Waters also went after Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) claiming that the two rogue liberals “don’t give a darn” about police reform legislation.

She declared that she was “absolutely angered by the killing of young black men in this country.”

Predictably, Waters made Nichols’ death all about her, recounting her fight for police reform during her political career. She went all the way back to the beating of Rodney King in the late 90s, boasting about it to MSNBC host Symone Sanders.

“We keep fighting, we keep begging, we keep doing everything that we possibly can,” she said of the push to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.

The California Democrat claims that police reforms continue to fail because “we don’t have enough members who care enough about this issue.” She has spoken on Nichols’ death for three nights in a row, capitalizing on it and railing against police officers as protests rage across the country.

“When you look at even two Democrats – Manchin of course, and of course that woman from Arizona – they don’t give a darn about this issue. They would rather have the power to determine what happens in the Senate by using their two votes for themselves than anything else,” she viciously charged.

Sanders could be seen mouthing “Kyrsten Sinema” as Waters refused to even utter her name.

Sinema has stood against the “Defund the Police” movement despite being pressured by Democrats to fall in line and support it following the death of George Floyd in 2020 when he was forcibly detained by police officers.

The senator’s spokesperson told the Arizona Mirror at the time, “Kyrsten is focused on getting things done, and is working with colleagues in both parties on proposals including increasing the use of social workers and intervention strategies that keep Arizona families safe.”

Manchin joined a number of Democrats in 2020 and voted to open debate on a police reform bill introduced by Republican Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, according to the Daily Mail.

Following the death of Nichols, Manchin issued a statement, saying in part, “This cannot be the America we strive for, and we must come together to meaningfully address it.”

Sinema and Manchin have fiercely defended the Senate filibuster, which has allowed Republicans over the past two years to block Democratic agenda items including voting rights, abortion protections, and criminal justice reform.

The officers who have now been charged with the murder of Nichols can be seen in video footage using pepper spray and a stun gun on the suspect while punching and kicking him as he cried for his mother. He died three days later in a hospital from the beating.

The five officers were fired from the department last week and are charged with second-degree murder and a number of other crimes connected to the incident.

President Biden is now calling for the passage of a police reform bill.

“It is yet another painful reminder of the profound fear and trauma, the pain, and the exhaustion that black and brown Americans experience every single day,” he incited in a statement, leaving out the fact that the five officers who committed the crime were all black.

Protests erupted across the country after the brutal footage of the beating was released. They continued for a third night on Sunday.

In Memphis, protesters took to the streets chanting, “Whose streets? Our streets!” They made obscene gestures at the police monitoring the march, according to the Daily Mail.

Hundreds more gathered in New York City’s Washington Square Park and marched in Manhattan as police accompanied them.

In Los Angeles, Antifa smashed up businesses in a second night of rioting by the radical leftist group.

Those marching in Atlanta repeated Nichols’ name and shouted for justice in front of Philadelphia’s City Hall.
