In a fiery keynote speech at the Black Women’s Expo Phenomenal Woman Gala on Thursday night, U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters denounced President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office and addressed at length her recent brouhaha with Fox News talk show host Bill O’Reilly. O’Reilly sparked outrage last week when he made fun of the hairstyle of the veteran civil rights activist, a ranking member of the House Committee on Financial Services and one of the most powerful black women in American politics. The comments, called sexist and racist by many, were quickly denounced, including by former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Waters, an outspoken advocate on issues confronting people of color, women and inner cities, spent the better part of a one-hour speech denouncing Trump’s policies and the increasing revelations on his administration’s ties to the Russian government in a packed ballroom of 500 people at Hyatt Regency Chicago.
