Poverty Pimp or Mistrial Matron?

Maxine Waters has a huge mouth and flaps her gums like Dumbo attempting liftoff. This doesn’t come back to bite her in the California raisin as often as we’d like, but Judge Peter Cahill today implied that it might.

Derek Chauvin’s lawyer Eric “Full” Nelson had omitted Congresswoman Waters’ name as he asked Judge Cahill to declare a mistrial, but Judge Cahill saw no reason to shelter the 182 year old. Naming her twice, the Judge went on to express his frustration with politicians publicly discussing the ongoing trial. He even went so far as to compare her actions to those of your average Canadian internet forum dweller, calling them “abhorrent”.

Many are musing this leaves Chauvin a wide-open shot at appeal should he need it.
