Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., chair of the House Committee on Financial Services, is asked by reporters about comments by Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., who used profanity to describe President Donald Trump and call for his impeachment, at the Capitol in Washington, Friday, Jan. 4, 2019.(AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
As the Joe Biden Vice Presidential Nominee Selection Process Express (tongue planted firmly in cheek) chugs slowly towards the finish line, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) on Friday guaranteed who Biden will finally tap as his running mate. Suspense killing you? Me, neither.
That said, Mad Maxine boldly predicted drumroll, please that Joe will select as his vice presidential running mate a black woman.
Given that most of the known universe believes Bidens pick will be a black woman hes all but said so and that those in the know say the three finalists are Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), former UN ambassador and national security advisor under Barack Obama, Susan Rice, and Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) all black Maxines guarantee was neither bold, nor necessary.
So why did she make it? Because Maxine is Maxine, of course.
Thing is, other than renewed speculation as late as Friday that (white) embattled Michigan Mayor Gretchen Whitmer might still be a contender, the real news would be Biden not selecting a black woman.
Nonetheless, Maxine said during a Friday virtual town hall meeting on Essence that Biden cant go home unless he picks a black woman.
We know that were going to have a Black woman as vice president. Let me guarantee you this, based on everything that I know and understand, and the help that he has already gotten from the Black community [ ] he cant go home without a Black woman being VP.
Got systemic racism, Maxine?

During comments about Rep. John Lewis (D-AL), the late Civil Rights icon who passed away in July, Waters stressed the importance of Blacks voting in November.
We have a responsibility to vote. We cant have people going around talking about how wonderful John Lewis was, how much he sacrificed, the beatings that he took, the way that he put his life on the line and we dont get up and vote. There is no excuse.

As devotees of Maxines wild rants about Trump are well aware, she suffers from a rare TDS-related form of Tourette Syndrome [sarc], which causes her to blurt out incessantly and without the slightest of provocation Impeach 45! Impeach 45! Impeach 45! ad nauseam, a condition with which she has been afflicted since the nanosecond Trump was declared the winner of the 2016 presidential election.
Hence, Mad Maxine lives to beat Trump. Literally. Our lives depend on this, she said.
Four more years of Trump, he will be able to exercise the kind of exclusion and discrimination that will set us back many, many years and we cannot afford that. He stands to imperil our future and the future of our children. So vote, vote, vote.
Wait did Maxine just encourage Black people to vote three times? Im kidding, of course not that she wouldnt encourage it if she could get away with it, huh?
As to be expected, Twitter had thoughts.

@RepMaxineWaters I respectfully disagree. @JoeBiden VP candidate should be based on qualifications, period. Race or gender should have NOTHING to do with it. And, I am a man of color, I live to fight 4 equal rights. This is not it.

Why cant it be a Latina or Asian woman to run as vp, why does it have to be a black woman. You are being racist.

Ah, but what about the 1/1,064th Native American whose 2020 presidential campaign consisted of promising to give as much free stuff to minorities as she thought she could get away with? Why shouldnt she be Joes pick?

Regardless of who
Joes handlers Joe selects as his running mate, chances are the Democrat standard bearers wont appear together during the convention, given that Joe will not be going to Milwaukee for the festivities out of concerns over COVID-19. (Wink-wink.)
That is, unless Joes team decides to allow his (black woman) running mate to visit with Joe in his basement and watch the convention on TV.
God, please allow Joe to pick Waters!
Fill the quota Joe!
Dont worry about who, just pick anyone who is black and female.
Just call a temp agency
Whoa. Sounds like a threat.
Yeah, why is Mad Maxine not on SloJoe’s V.P. list ?
He can sniff her wig....
I think Waters would be an excellent VP pick. It would be pure entertainment.
Kerosene Maxine would make this election explosive.
Kamala Harris and Susan Rice are too white.
Biden’s handler cannot pick a light-skinned black.
If Maxine Waters is not the choice, it is racist.
Read this on Twitter and aint it the truth.
“Monica Lewinsky has more experience in the Oval Office than anyone @joebiden picks as his VP running mate”.
with credits going to “GOD, Family and Country @GregoryZachBell”
SloJo and low IQ Maxine - that would be quite a ticket.
Together they’d have a hard time reaching 100 IQ.
The affirmative action VP.
The black privilege VP.
He’s pretty much backed himself into a corner for his VP pick.
He HAS to pick a black woman as he has already promised to do so. His black voting block of women will not simply let this go I’m thinking.
Is that a picture of Oprah?
Have a heart attack, Maxine .They need another high profile black funeral , before the Election
Well, then, Joe Biden must choose Maxine Waters as his running mate.
A strong gust of wind would doom her fake hair piece.....would be utterly hilarious.
