Just recently, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) lashed out at President Donald Trump and his supporters during what countless people would consider an unhinged “impeachment” meltdown that was caught on video. Disturbingly, at one point during her seemingly deranged tirade, which may indicate that she has some seriously severe mental health issues, she also appeared to brag about threatening Trump supporters.
Specifically, while accepting an award in Los Angeles, California over the weekend from the Stonewall Young Democrats, which is supposedly a national youth-based group dedicated to promoting LGBT rights, Rep. Waters stated, “there are those who said we lacked civility when I got up and talked about the President’s Cabinet, and I said if you see them anywhere, if you see them at a restaurant, if you see them in a department store, even at a gasoline station, just tell them you’re not welcome here or anywhere.”
She also chanted ‘impeachment’ over and over.
After referring to the controversial comments, she then tried to downplay the concern that others had as a result of what she said.
“And so, it frightened a lot of people, and of course the lying president said that I had threatened all of his constituents,” asserted Waters as the crowd cheered and applauded.
“I did not threaten his constituents, his supporters,” the California congresswoman added, noting, “I do that all the time, but I didn’t do it that time.”
In addition to celebrating her call for others to harass those in the current administration, Waters also reiterated that she is still wholly committed to removing Trump from office.
“When I compare what you’re doing with what we have in Washington, DC, in the highest office in the land, I wake up in the middle of the night and all I can think about is I’m gonna get him,” explained the democratic lawmaker before repeating “I’m going to get him” a couple of times for emphasis as the crowd once again cheered and applauded.
“I’m in this fight and I’m not gonna move. And, as you know, there’s a difference in how some of our leadership talk about how we should handle all of this,” she added.
“They say, ‘Maxine, please don’t say impeachment anymore,” continued the liberal, noting, “and when they say that, I say impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment.”
Moreover, Waters also made it clear that she doesn’t intend to stop trying to remove President Trump from office.
“I had a conversation here today with someone who asked, ‘Well, what about Pence? If you are able to impeach, Pence will be worse,’” recalled the lawmaker, who then mentioned that she replied, “look, one at a time.”
To underscore her point, she added, “you knock one down, one at a time. You knock one down, and we’ll be ready for Pence. We’ll get him, too.”
At another point during what many would agree was a ludicrous rant, Waters also criticized Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) because the Senate minority leader apologized to Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who was recently nominated to serve as a justice on the Supreme Court, for the countless people who interrupted the hearings that were held last week to confirm him to the court.
“We don’t ask permission to protest. We protest,” explained the democratic lawmaker, adding, “when we understand that we have to make America hear us and see us, and understand that we all have something to say.”
Disturbingly, Rep. Waters is far from the only person to recently bash the Trump administration and those who support it.
At a campaign rally in Florida last month, for instance, Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL), who was impeached from the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida in 1989, for reportedly taking a bribe as a federal judge and committing perjury afterward in his testimony about the case, made what many would view as a vile joke about the president drowning in the Potomac River.
Specifically, while speaking to the audience at the event, Hastings asked, “do you know the difference between a crisis and a catastrophe?”
After pausing for a few moments, he then stated, “a crisis is if Donald Trump falls into the Potomac River and can’t swim…and a catastrophe is if anybody saves his a**,” which caused the crowd, quite horrifically, to erupt with laughter.
Also, former President Barack Obama appeared to attack President Trump while talking at an event that was hosted in South Africa by speaking out against national leaders who “completely make stuff up.” In an attempt to justify his criticism, he asserted that undermining facts could potentially lead to the “undoing” of democracy.
Afterward, he then basically suggested that Trump spends a significant amount of time doubling down on obvious lies rather than repeatedly trying to correct false claims that others make about him and his administration.
Prior to that, Jennifer Rubin, who is a well-known anti-Trump journalist, essentially called for White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to be punished with a life of discomfort for supposedly “inciting against” and “lying to” the press.
Alarmingly, numerous people associated with the Trump administration have also been harassed by others in public.
For example, a few weeks ago, Kellyanne Conway, who is currently serving as the White House Counselor, told reporters that she was allegedly harassed by someone while shopping for groceries in Washington DC.
In addition to Conway, Steven Miller, who is currently serving as a policy advisor to the president, was allegedly harassed by an unidentified bartender while picking up takeout sushi.
Without a doubt, countless people would agree that this kind of absolutely divisive rhetoric and unhinged behavior must not be tolerated. Unfortunately, though, based on the recent reaction that Waters received while speaking at the event in Los Angeles, there still appear to be numerous others who don’t seem to have a problem with such blatantly hateful language.
