During an interview with Fox Business Thursday morning, Scott slammed congressional Democrats like Waters for constantly playing up the race card when it comes to Trump.
“This race card that the Democratic party keeps playing is getting played out,” said Scott. “It’s ’bout as worn out as a deck of cards in the penitentiary. No matter what the president does. No matter what the president says, they’re going to try to play the race card when they don’t have anything else.”
The pastor, who served on Trump’s presidential transition team, had more harsh words for “Auntie Maxine.”
“She talks about the president [not] behaving presidentially; she needs to act and behave congressionally,” he said. “You know you have what they have the drunk uncle? Well she acts like the crazy aunt that’s rambling and babbling incessantly over every little thing and her act is becoming very, very stale.”
You recall how last year Scott told Trump that he had spoken with Chicago gang leaders who promised to “lower the body count” if social programs were enacted.
“They want to work with this administration,” Scott said at the time.
But he later admitted that he “misspoke” when he suggested to Trump that he had spoken with “top gang thugs.”
Scott said that a lack of sleep caused him to make the comments and confirmed that he had not spoken with “top gang thugs” but simply one person who was a former gang member, per The Grio.
“Before we start talking about creating jobs, before we start talking about all these other things, before we implement them, we need to reduce that body count,” he said.
Pastor Scott believes Waters needs to be more careful with how she speaks publicly because there are plenty of people who are ready to take her seat.
