Maxine Waters tosses another race-baiting insult at Jeff Sessions

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) continued her acerbic attacks against the Trump administration in a tweet meant to insult Attorney General Jeff Sessions Friday.

Here's what she said:

"Sessions doesn't remember what he said, when he said it, & where he was when he said it," she tweeted. "Don't blame him. Time to go back to the plantation."

What is Waters referring to?

Waters is referring to recent developments in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government during the election.

Sessions has said he doesn't remember any interaction between members of the Trump transition team and the Russian government, but a New York Times report says that former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos had suggested a meeting between the campaign and the Russians during a meeting where the president and the attorney general were present.

Papadopoulos has pleaded guilty for making false statements to federal investigators, making some speculate that he might be cooperating with the investigation against other members of the Trump campaign.

Why did she mention a "plantation"?

It is not clear what she meant by the missive, but it clearly could have racial undertones. Waters has been very outspoken in her vitriol against the Trump administration, at one point calling them the "Kremlin Klan."
