Nutjob Maxine Waters Says Trump Should Be Impeached — Over NFL Tweets

We really are running out of ways to say “You won’t believe what Maxine Waters has done now.”

Every time the California Democrat opens her mouth, the Dumbest Thing Ever Said rolls out. And as she always does, Waters finds racism in the smallest of things, this time in President Trump’s tweets condemning NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem.

“He’s pointing now to the NFL. We know that the majority of these players are African American and we know what he is doing. We’re not tricked or fooled by him in any shape, form or fashion,” she said on MSNBC over the weekend.

And then, as only Waters can do, she segued straight to impeachment. How is it, she asked, that Trump won’t criticize Russian President Vladimir Putin or white supremacists (he has), but “here he is strongly criticizing, you know, football players, uh, the NFL players.”

“He should not be the president of the United States of America and we gotta’ get ready for impeachment,” Waters said.

Yes, the 77-year-old lawmaker said Trump should be impeached in part because he tweeted several times condemning NFL players for taking a knee and disrespecting America.

“It is absolutely outrageous and dangerous what he’s doing,” Waters said. “He started dog-whistling to that constituency during the campaign and started his division. They frighten people. They play into racism. They do what every other president either has attempted not to do, or at least showed some signs of, uh, you know, trying to bring people together, or not divide,” she said.

“He is about division. He is about signaling to that core group of his that this country that he wants to make great again is all about making it white,” she said.
