Maxine Waters Just Used Comey’s Testimony To Call Out Trump’s Alleged Sexual Assault

Maxine Waters put President Donald Trump on blast on Wednesday afternoon using his favorite communication medium: Twitter.

A few hours earlier, the Senate Intelligence Committee published James Comey’s seven-page prepared testimony, detailing the former FBI director’s interactions with President Trump. (Comey will be testifying in front of the Senate Intelligence community on Thursday.)

In his testimony, Comey wrote that on Feb. 14 he told Attorney General Jeff Sessions that the President had addressed him alone, something that presidents normally do not do. Comey ― who at the time was still the FBI director ― asked Sessions not to allow President Trump to engage in one-on-one conversations with him because it was “inappropriate.” 

Comey wrote (emphasis ours):

I spoke with Attorney General Sessions in person to pass along the President’s concerns about leaks. I took the opportunity to implore the Attorney General to prevent any future direct communication between the President and me. I told the AG that what had just happened ― him being asked to leave while the FBI Director, who reports to the AG, remained behind ― was inappropriate and should never happen. He did not reply. 

Later Wednesday afternoon, Congresswoman Maxine Waters used Comey’s testimony to call President Trump out for his lengthy record of alleged sexual harassment and assault. (Sixteen women have publicly accused the president of sexual assault.) 

“So Comey told Jeff Sessions he didn’t want to be alone with Trump. Women across the country can relate,” she tweeted. 

Only an hour after Waters tweeted the spot-on sentiment, the tweet had received over 5,000 retweets and 12,000 likes.

John Waters To Receive Honorary Degree From Rhode Island School Of Design

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — When the Rhode Island School of Design offered iconic filmmaker John Waters an honorary degree, he was surprised. After all, he got thrown out of every school he ever went to.

Known for quirky films that push the boundaries of good taste, including 1972’s outrageous cult classic “Pink Flamingos,” Waters is the keynote speaker at the prestigious art school’s commencement next weekend.

Waters will also receive an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree; recipients are chosen by the RISD community, and nominations are reviewed by a committee of students, faculty and staff.

“I don’t even know if I got a high school diploma. It’s very peculiar. I feel very flattered,” said Waters, who attended New York University briefly in the 1960s before getting kicked out for smoking marijuana on campus. “I feel like the scarecrow in the ‘Wizard of Oz’ when they give him a brain.”

RISD’s 2015 Honorary Degree Committee cited Waters’ body of films as an “enduring inspiration for RISD students seeking to break boundaries, challenge conventions, and define an expressive style,” said RISD President Rosanne Somerson.

“In the words of one nominator, he ’embodies the RISD ‘tude galore’,” Somerson said.

Waters will share a stage with three members of the band Talking Heads — two are RISD alumni — and New Yorker staff writer Adam Gopnik.

Waters has written and directed more than a dozen films over his decades-long career, many of them low-budget movies featuring a cadre of unconventional characters, including drag queen Divine, Waters’ longtime friend and muse. Waters saw mainstream success with 1988’s “Hairspray,” another cult classic that was adapted into a Broadway musical in 2002. He is also a published author and photographer.

“I shouldn’t have been in school. You go to school to figure out what you wanted to do. I knew what I wanted to do,” Waters said. “I wish I had gone to RISD. They would have encouraged my ideas. I could have made ‘Pink Flamingos.'”

Waters does more writing these days than filmmaking: The paperback of his 2014 memoir “Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America” debuts this month. Waters said he was inspired to hitchhike from his native Baltimore to San Francisco because his life is so scheduled and controlled.

“My inspiration has always been the same, which is human behavior I can’t understand, which is always my interest, always has been,” Waters said.

The filmmaker is looking forward to accepting his honorary degree, “Without irony, for one of the few times in my life.”

Silent Waters: Tsunami 10 Years On Official Trailer (2014) – Documentary HD

What happened once the waters receded, the beaches were cleaned up and the aid organisations left? Silent Waters provides an intimate glimpse into the lives of fishing communities on an undeveloped Thai island in the Andaman Sea.

The immense power from the waves destroyed the main village of 200 households. Many survivors moved to the mainland, too afraid to return. Those that chose to re-build their lives on the island recap their memories of that fateful day and how they coped after losing their families, homes and livelihood. They talk about their concerns for the future and how their unique lifestyle will likely change with the arrival of electricity.

What If the Avant-Garde Were the Moral? On Early John Waters and the Future of Queer Culture

Though I love them all, my two favorite films by John Waters are two of his earlier works: Pink Flamingos and Female Trouble. Perhaps in the current cultural moment of bareback porn and kink on demand via myVidster, words like “transgressive” have lost their meaning or feel a bit retro, but in the context of the ’70s, boy, those films were simply that.

Divine, who was to John Waters what Kim Novak was to Alfred Hitchcock, was more drag anarchist than drag queen. She resisted the impulses that typically dictate how drag gets represented in mass culture — camp and glamor — and carved out a third way, a kind of pre-punk sensibility, that made those early performances so bad-ass.

With Female Trouble Waters introduced the world to cha-cha heels, in the magnificent scene where Dawn Davenport, Divine’s character, goes on a rampage after not receiving the shoes for Christmas. And no one depicts a rampage better than John Waters. No one. The scene with her parents in the living room is one of the best moments in cinema. If camp has a boundary, a wall, an outer limit, they reached it.

Waters does not offer lush, visually breathtaking shots where the camera lusts over its subject; his early guerrilla filmmaking resisted that. His camera is more a co-conspirator that’s in on his antics. Waters is a director of movement, especially when it came to Divine.

The thing you have to appreciate about Divine — and you absolutely must appreciate this — is how she opened a scene. Of course, there are performers of technique, actors who can master a dialect or immerse themselves fully into a character, or even actors who can quite simply exude a luminescent quality. But as Pauline Kael would suggest, to enter a scene, now that’s something that requires talent, one of the rarest, most fun, and most precious elements of an actor’s craft. And Divine could enter a room. She could open a scene. She could focus your attention skillfully.

And what of John Waters and his influence? In her Starbooty phase RuPaul definitely inhabited a persona with a Watersesque sensibility. I also can’t help but think that Lady Gaga is a John Waters invention. Had Divine lived a few more years, she would have worn that meat dress first.

From a political perspective, especially with regard to queerness, the children of Lorde and Foucault rule that roost. It makes me wish that my generation took up Waters and his work more, because the subversive energy of his early films provides not only a lens but a landscape that helps us think innovatively about the possibilities of not only queer politics but queer practice.

Though Mapplethorpe probably gets the most credit as the ultimate queer outsider artist of that era, we forget about John Waters, along with his spiritual sibling, the Italian queer director Pier Paolo Pasolini, both of whom introduced poop eating to movie audiences, Pasolini in Salo, the breathtaking and equally disturbing interpretation of de Sade’s 120 Days of Sodom, set against a backdrop of Italian Fascism, and John Waters in Pink Flamingos. His dominant sensibility, revealing the influence of Jean Genet, seeks to reconfigure the value system not merely to shock but to totally disorient, disembody and ultimately displace. What’s a more rewarding cinematic experience than total disembodiment? To watch those films is to enter a liminal space, with Divine the channel.

Waters is never quite cynical. Pink Flamingos and Female Trouble resist the apocalyptic, dystopian feel of some films when they try to enter into “edgy” territory. What’s more radical than challenging the normal is presenting the perverse, the bizarre, the odd as if they were normal. As Jon Caramanica suggests, “[t]he avant-garde need not be moral.” But what if it were?

I want to single out Female Trouble and Pink Flamingos because I think the films together signal a moment, a sensibility carried over. I mean, Waters plays with similar themes in different ways throughout his career, but the intensity and potency of those early films compels me to remain with them. I am especially interested in John Waters because in our post- or arguably post-post-marriage-equality moment, I wonder if we can find in those early works something of value that helps us imagine the future and the possibilities of not only queer politics but queer culture.
