Pavlich: Maxine Waters Seems 'Triggered' by Trump
Katie Pavlich said Rep. Maxine Waters seems "triggered" after the California Democrat called for a parental advisory each time President Donald Trump appears on television.
“Whenever he appears on TV there should be a disclaimer that says ‘This may be may not be acceptable for children,'” Waters said on BET in a prerecorded response to Trump's State of the Union address.
Waters also described Trump as a “terrible role model for our children,” calling him a "dangerous, unprincipled, divisive and shameful racist."
"This seems like Mrs. Waters is triggered and she's trying to find a way to handle herself and she needs to go to some kind of 'safe space,'" Pavlich said on "Your World" on Thursday. "This goes to the broader idea that the left holds that when you hear things that you don't like, you automatically have to censor it, get rid of it, put it away. Nobody can be exposed to it and handle it in a way that is about debate, about ideology, about policies."
Pavlich noted that Waters' issues with Trump don't appear to be about offensive language or vulgarity, but his ideas themselves.
She said lawmakers on both sides of the aisle need to embrace open debate and civil discussion.
"Whenever you look at someone's argument and automatically ... accuse them of having bad motives and being a bad person, that gets us nowhere when it comes to solving real, difficult and emotional problems in this country," Pavlich said. "I'm sick of it. The country's sick of it. I think a lot of the reason President Trump was elected in 2016 is because of this exact thing."
