Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) is well-known for her crazy, outrageous comments, many of which are well documented throughout her political career. Recently, she made another over-the-top comment that crossed the line.
Rep. Waters recently appeared at an event in which she appeared to make a violent threat toward President Trump only 27 seconds into her speech. “And with this kind of inspiration, I will go and take out Trump tonight.”
Waters’ comment received cheers and applause, which she met with a smile and fist-pump. Her comment was made at an October 13th gala held at the Ali Forney Center in New York City. The center claims to hold special events “to raise funds and awareness… for homeless LGBT youth.”
The video was removed by YouTube, but other outlets have re-uploaded it to the video sharing site to spread awareness of the seemingly violent threat. After all, it’s unclear whether or not Waters is proposing murder.
Just two days later, Waters spoke at an AIDS walk in Los Angeles, in which she spoke about public health, and was sure to use the opportunity to trash the President. “And we have, unfortunately, an unstable, erratic person in the White House,” she told the crowd, before promising, “I’m heading toward impeachment.”
She has been trying to get Trump impeached since the day he was sworn in, and she’s made it a point to speak about it at nearly every public appearance she makes.
Just last month at a Congressional Black Caucus town hall meeting, Waters called on the black community to join her in impeachment proceedings, and stated “Impeachment is about whatever the Congress says it is. There is no law that dictates impeachment. What the Constitution says is ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ and we define that.”
Her outlandish comments stretch back nearly a decade. During a 2008 House hearing probing oil company executives, Waters admitted, “this liberal will be about socializing … and the government running all your companies.”
She expressed her disgust of patriotic Americans in 2010 after witnessing a Tea Party rally, saying, “I just watched-the Republicans were out there-they were having a great time. They were laughing, they were waving the American flag, they were egging them on, and I thought that was outrageous behavior. I really did.”
Her comments have been consistent with socialistic tendencies, and promoting increasing government power. She appears to think she, as a member of Congress, has unlimited power to overthrow company executives to the very President of the United States.
Perhaps Waters’ finds it necessary to make such outlandish comments to rally her supporters’ hatred of President Trump and detract from the heavy corruption entangling her political career. The Washington-based leftist group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics, declared Waters the “Most Corrupt Member of Congress” five separate times — in 2005, 2006, 2009, 2011, and 2017.
Maxine Waters is largely viewed as corrupt. Do you agree?
The group detailed the extent of her corruption in a lengthy press release, from hiding conflicts of interest, to avoiding ethics trials, and other serious circumstances of misconduct. She has protected her own interests more than the interests of her constituents.
There have been no consequences or accountability for Maxine Waters’ behavior so far. Until she is finally replaced, she will continue to use her elected position to do what she’s always done: spew hatred and embody corruption.
