Maxine Waters Responds to Bill O'Reilly: 'I Cannot Be Intimidated'

Congresswoman Maxine Waters is speaking out after Bill O’Reilly made a racist and sexist comment about her.

During a segment on his show, O’Reilly said he was “looking at the James Brown wig.” He later apologized for his remark, but then seemingly attacked her again that evening.

Waters took the high road when asked to comment on the remarks during her appearance on MSNBC on Tuesday night (March 28).

“I am a strong black woman, and I cannot be intimidated. I cannot be undermined,” Waters said. “I cannot be thought to be a friend of Bill O’Reilly or anybody. And I’d like to say to women out there everywhere: Don’t allow these right-wing talking heads, these dishonorable people, to intimidate you or scare you. Be who you are. Do what you do. And let us get on with discussing the real issues of this country.”

    Why is a man whose hair line has balded back to he middle of his head commenting on someone else’s hair style? This is almost as confusing as when fatty mcfatout Rush Limbaugh (the only thing this fool has rushed lately is the buffet line!) said Michelle Obama was not as slim as a swimsuit model. I am sick of these ugly old republican men making nasty comments about women’s looks. What if Democratic men start cracking on Kelly Ann Conway? Bill, please mind your own wrinkly, jowly, liver spotted business!

    What’s the big deal? There was nothing inherently racist about what Bill O’Reilly said. By the way not only was it funny it was true. Rocky fours James Brown called maxine Waters and ask for his hair back. #MaxineHasMyHair #JamesBrownWantsHisHairBack

    It was pretty funny…it inspired me to go back and watch a little “James Brown Celebrity Hot Tub” from the Eddie Murphy SNL days!
