One has to wonder at times how the majority of politicians got to where they are currently. Sure, we can point to unfulfilled promises, disingenuous flowery language and virtue signaling as reasons why they occupy their privileged positions in their ivory towers. One thing is for sure, for those who oppose President Donald Trump, their hatred of the man is more transparent than any of their legislating has been.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) joined CNN’s Erin Burnett on Monday to talk about, what else, the impeachment of Trump, and Waters put her foot in her mouth more than once. Let’s just put it this way — you don’t need to be a genius to be a politician.
When Burnett asked Waters if she would rule out impeaching the president again, the 81-year-old congresswoman said something that almost made my water shoot out of my nose.
“Let me just say that, you know, his comments are just, you know, comments of a frustrated individual who does not support impeachment,” Waters unbelievably said. “And he’s not only been on the air time-and-time again, rantin’ and raving about the impeachment process, and so I pay no attention to what he has to say.”
I’m sorry, what? There’s so much to unpack here.
First, Waters didn’t answer the question. Second, why would Trump support the impeachment of himself? What in the blue h-e-double hockey sticks is she talking about? And was Waters expecting Trump to speak in flowery terms about his own impeachment? Come on, Maxine. Please rejoin reality.
If that weren’t enough, Waters then went on about Trump and Putin and how they’re evil and yada, yada, yada. We’ve heard it all a million times by now. What we haven’t heard is Waters admission, probably not intentionally, that it’s her own assumption that Trump and Putin are in on some kind of conspiracy together and not any factual evidence of any kind.
I couldn’t believe it, but Burnett actually showed that she remembered how to practice journalism when she brought up that Waters had called for Trump’s impeachment “less than two weeks into his [Trump’s] presidency.” Burnett asked Waters about her take on the Republicans impeachment rebuttal that the Democrats have been looking to impeach Trump from the beginning.
“They say these things because they cannot refute the facts,” Waters said.
Now here’s where it gets both funny and aggravating.
“Because I believe, even though I don't have the facts to prove it,” Waters actually said. “I believe that Putin wanted to lift the sanctions. He's always wanted to lift these sanctions that were placed on him because of his interfering with, and incursion into Crimea. And so I believe that they wanted to elect President Trump.”
Waters said that she “believes” every bad thing about the Trump conspiracy theory three times in one answer. It makes you think if she kept saying “believe” because Waters actually believes the allegations or if she was trying to persuade herself, you know, since she doesn’t “have the facts to prove it.”
These politicians are so pathetic in their rhetoric that even they don’t really believe in a fair process, just one that gives them the outcome they desire.
