California Congresswoman Maxine Waters just unloaded both barrels on President Trump, calling for his impeachment.
During an unhinged rant, Waters blasted 45 as “dangerous, disturbed, and deceitful.” She also said he is an “embarrassment” and “national disgrace.”
From The Hill:
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called Friday for President Trump’s impeachment after reports that Trump called Haiti, El Salvador and some African nations “shithole countries” in a meeting with lawmakers.
“No longer can Members of Congress, particularly Republicans, stand with such a dangerous, disturbed, and deceitful man who is a threat to everything for which America, the greatest democracy on earth, stands,” Waters said in a statement. “Congress has a constitutional responsibility to impeach him without delay.”
Waters said Trump is “a racist and indecent man with no good values” and said he “dog-whistled his way into the White House” on a campaign of “hate, bigotry and fear.”
“That this president, a deeply flawed human being with no understanding of public policy, would make such ill-informed and deplorable comments about Haitians, Salvadorans, and immigrants from African countries, merely underscores everything we already know about him: he is a hopeless and ignorant bigot,” she said.
The Hill has more:
“Donald Trump is an embarrassment and a national disgrace. Members of Congress have a responsibility to the American people and our democracy to impeach him,” Waters said.
[Rep. Al] Green’s articles of impeachment, which failed to advance last month, argued that Trump is “fueling an alt-right hate machine” that’s “causing immediate injury to American society.” The articles further state that Trump has “brought disrepute, contempt, ridicule and disgrace on the presidency” and “sown discord among the people of the United States.”
Congressional condemnation of racist bigotry is not enough. In Congress, talk is cheap-it’s how we vote that counts. Next week, I will again bring a resolution to impeach @realDonaldTrump. I will put my vote where my mouth is. #RepealandReplaceTrump

Green’s second attempt to impeach Trump will fail. It has no legs.
Maxine isn’t really offended by Trump’s ‘s***hole’ remarks. She just knows it’s a good way to rile up uninformed Democrats – as Rush Limbaugh notes at this link.
Maxine and Al need to take a vacation and cool down. America is far better off under Trump than Hillary Clinton any day!
