Maxine Waters Calls For Trump To Be ‘Placed In Solitary Confinement’
U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) speaks at a protest against U.S. President Donald Trump's National Emergency declaration, February 18, 2019, outside City Hall in Los Angeles, California.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) went off the rails on Tuesday in calling for President Donald Trump’s impeachment for the umpteenth time. Topping her previous comments, Rep. Waters claimed that Trump should be thrown in jail and “placed in solitary confinement.”

In a series of tweets, the seasoned Democrat threw a number of allegations at Trump, which included the president apparently “implying” whistleblowers should be “killed.” While impeachment must suffice for now, she argued, Trump deserves imprisonment and solitary confinement. 

“I’m calling on the GOP to stop Trump’s filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies & using mob language implying they should be killed,” she accused. “Impeachment is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement. But for now, impeachment is the imperative.”

The 81-year-old also scolded Trump for allegedly implying “civil war” will break out if he’s impeached; Waters said this was a dogwhistle “to his white supremacists” to cultivate fear. 

“Trump is so irresponsible & so hungry for power & control, he would dare imply that a civil war will ensue if he’s impeached. He is dog whistling to his white supremacists to create fear & intimidation b/c he knows he is going to be impeached. He knows he deserves impeachment,” she tweeted.

As noted by The Daily Wire on Monday, the president quoted a Fox News guest, Pastor Robert Jeffries, warning of a “Civil War-like fracture” if Trump is to be removed from office. 

“If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal,” Pastor Jeffries said, according to Trump. 

Waters, who chairs the House Financial Services Committee, concluded her anti-Trump rant warning that impeachment is “on the way.”

“Trump has corrupted so many members of his admin,” the California representative said. “The lies, coverups, shaking down foreign countries & undermining our democracy will be recorded as one of the worst periods in the history of our country, all led by a dishonorable con man. Follow the facts, impeachment on the way.”

Im March, Rep. Waters similarly said in a tweet that “impeachment is the only answer” for Trump. 

“Obstruction of justice reality show: Firing [former FBI Director James] Comey, sending coded messages to [former Trump campaign chairman Paul] Manafort & others that he has the power to pardon; lying abt Trump Tower meeting; threatening [of former attorney Michael] Cohen’s in-laws; attempting to destroy [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller,” she claimed. “What more do we need to know? Impeachment is the only answer.”

Last summer, Waters, who ironically just accused Trump of deepening the partisan divide, encouraged Americans to harass members of the president’s cabinet if seen out in public.

“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she said.
