Rep. Maxine Waters — the California Democrat who is one of President Donald Trump’s most vocal and prominent haters — just had a total collapse on national television.
During an interview Sunday morning on MSNBC, the California Democrat lost her mind after being asked about Trump firing Ambassador Gordon Sondland and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who testified against Trump during House Democrats’ impeachment hearings.
But Waters strangely made the conversation about race and bizarrely accused the president of having “no respect for people of color.”
“This president defined himself a long time ago. I am not surprised at anything that he would do. He has no respect for his colleagues, no respect for the Constitution, no respect for people of color, and so the firing is typical of what this president is all about,” Waters shouted.
“He basically told us what he’s capable of. And this is not the end of it. Do you think this is something? Watch what he’s going to continue to do. We have a dishonorable president not capable of being the president of the United States, representing and caring for all the people and the security of this country. And so we’re in for it. We’re in for this president and actions such as this and more that’s going to go on, and his campaign is going to help pay for him being even more ridiculous. So again, I’m not surprised. It’s almost as if I want to say I told you so,” she added.
Waters really lost her mind after that.
She added, “I’m also worried about he’s going to be even more divisive than he’s been. He said, and he warned us that if he did not get elected, that there was going to be a race riot. I mean, he basically said it in so many words. So that’s a bad, bad leadership action that he’s already taken, where he’s predicting that all that he’s doing will cause people to turn on each other and it would be a race riot if he’s not —what more do we want from this president? You know, yes, he went through the impeachment process. We impeached him in the House. The Senate didn’t have the nerve, the guts, didn’t have the responsibility as patriots to do what needed to be done and to not support this president. And now they’re talking about. They ask him not to fire Vindman and not to fire Sondland? Give me a break.”
For starters, Trump firing two officials has nothing to do with race.
Secondly, Sondland and Vindman played a key role in the ginned-up case that Trump withheld military aid to Ukraine in exchange for an investigation of the Bidens.
Trump has every right to hire and fire officials in his administration. The president can and should have people he trusts on his staff.
Now that the impeachment witch hunt is over, Trump can get back to draining the D.C. swamp of disloyal leakers who are still trying to undermine him.
