While the U.S. Capitol is supposed to be a place for policy and statesmanship, Maxine Waters likes to use it for partisan politics.
While accepting a “Pioneer for Progress Award” from the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, the California Congresswoman launched into the need to elect more Democrats.
“African-American women serve as mayors in only six of the nation’s 100 largest cities,” Waters lamented.
Nashville has the opportunity to make Carol Swain the seventh black woman mayor, but she’s a conservative, so will she count to Waters?
Leaving her notes, Waters launched into another attack on President Trump, again calling for his impeachment.
“Ladies and gentlemen, as you know, I’ve taken a leading role in dealing with what is wrong with the White House,” she said to cheers.
“I am absolutely offended by this president, and I’m totally ashamed that we have him representing this country.
“This president does not deserve to be the president of the United States of America,” she said.
“This president is not simply the president because he worked, and he won, and he did honorable things. He colluded with Russia,” Waters declared, “I’m sure of that and I want you to know that our special counsel is going to connect those dots.”
Referring to Trump, she said, “And he has also obstructed justice. As a matter of fact, the White House has become a criminal enterprise.”
Talking about the president’s criticisms of the FBI and the special counsel, she surmised, “Why is he doing this? He must be guilty of something and I think he’s guilty of a lot.”
Moments later, Waters then led the audience in an “Impeach 45” chant.
“There are a lot of people who are talking about the fact that we can get rid of this president in 2020 in the presidential election.
“I’m not waiting that long. I want him impeached now!” she said to cheers.
“As I go around the country, you will hear me say over and over again, what? Impeach 45!”
“Sing the song, tell the story and just end with ‘Impeach 45,'” Waters said, as the crowd joined in.
