A California congresswomen, perhaps one of the most insufferable characters in American politics, went on an unhinged rant on Monday that was full of colorful language, and of course her favorite word: impeachment.
“I say impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment!” said Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), taking a shot at some of her colleagues who have been asking her to tone down the impeachment rhetoric.
This was after she openly bragged about threatening President Donald J. Trump’s supporters.
“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 said.
“And so, it frightened a lot of people, and of course the lying president said that I had threatened all of his constituents,” Waters said. “I did not threaten his constituents, his supporters. I do that all the time, but I didn’t do it that time.”
After this off-the-cuff remark, Waters put her complete lack of self-awareness on display, saying that Trump lacked “character,” and had “no values.”
Apparently Trump, unlike Waters, lacks the character to threaten the lives of his political opponents. Willingness to inflict death upon those who do not share the same political views is a truly desirable character trait.
She continued to threaten Trump, saying she was going to “get him.”
When I compare what you’re doing with what we have in Washington, D.C., 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,” she said. “I’m gonna get him. I’m gonna get him.”
Waters even went to far as to promise to impeach Vice President Michael R. Pence, presuming that she could oust Trump first.
“You knock one down, one at a time,” she said. “You knock one down, and we’ll be ready for Pence. We’ll get him, too.”
