Maxine Waters is deeply hurt to see young Black men exercising their rights to vote for the presidential candidate of their choice.
The California Democrat who represents the 43rd congressional district disowned young Black men who vote for President Donald Trump.
Waters, posing here with singer Janelle Monáe in September, is panic-stricken that young Black males are leaving the Democratic Party in droves.
During an appearance on "The Joe Madison Show" on SiriusXM on Friday, Waters said it is "shameful" that more Black men might vote for Trump on Nov. 3.
"It just hurts me so bad to see blacks talking about supporting Trump. I don't know why they would be doing it. I don't know why it is on their minds," she said.
The 82-year-old grandmother said Trump "does not have any appreciation for black people and black women in particular. He has no respect for us. He is not doing anything for us."
She added she will never "forgive" young Black men who vote for Trump this year.
"For those black young men who think somehow they can align themselves with Trump - not only are they terribly mistaken - any of them showing their face, I will never, ever forgive them for undermining the possibility to help their own people and their own communities."
