As we told you yesterday, Rep. Maxine Waters went to Brooklyn Center, Minnesota to urge calm. Wait, no she didn’t:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is being asked if she’s OK with Waters basically trying to incite riots:
Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis — just as she has incited it in the past. If Speaker Pelosi doesn’t act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week.

But Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler is trying to “reconcile” what the House Democrat said in Minnesota (far from her own district):
Trying to reconcile this with the haggling over a bipartisan probe of January 6. https://t.co/rVOAjgCilu

Well, that’s certainly one way to dodge the point in question:
Is Maxine Waters inciting violence or not?

That’s not your job. Is Maxine Waters inciting violence?

Glenn, should Maxine Waters be removed from office for her comments?
Yes or no.
Your job isn't to "reconcile."
It's to fact-check. Is she inciting violence or not? https://t.co/tPlglUmN0z

The “fact-checking” media do spend a lot of time “reconciling” for Democrats.
Rioting is bad, no matter who's doing it.

Trump: “Peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard”
Maxine Waters: "Keep it in the streets….Be more confrontational"
This, after Waters called for, incited harassment and violence against MAGA/GOP.

What's to reconcile? Maxine called for violence, Trump didn't. End of story.
