PBS’ Yamiche Alcindor presses White House to defend Maxine Waters’ call for confrontations

“I wonder why the White House isn’t coming to the defense of Rep. Waters given the fact that she is facing an onslaught of attacks by, I would say Republicans, I wonder why the White House isn’t saying, ‘We back what she said about being confrontational,’” Alcindor asked press secretary Jen Psaki during Tuesday’s briefing.

“She was obviously not threatening violence,” Alcindor continued. “There are civil rights leaders saying that’s what civil rights is, to be confrontational, to be active.”

PBS correspondent Yamiche Alcindor pondered why the Biden administration isn’t rushing to the defense of Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., after the Democratic lawmaker called for people to get "confrontational" if Derek Chauvin isn’t convicted of killing George Floyd.
