Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is the soundbite machine that just keeps on giving. This time, TMZ caught up with the congresswoman to get her thoughts on the escalating situation between the U.S. and North Korea.
From the looks of the video, it appears Waters would rather have tea time with North Korean “Supreme Leader” Kim Jong Un than defend the people she is supposed to represent from foreign threats. Sounds just like California.
Here’s part of the “very coherent” comments Waters made to TMZ:
I believe that North Korea is interesting threats to the United States, but I think there’s some things that they want from us, and we have to find out whether or not we can work with them on the things that they’re asking for.
It seems that Waters was channeling her inner Barack Obama by suggesting the U.S. should “lead from behind," and basically saying that the U.S. should give North Korea what they want in order to avoid war. If you're Waters, looking weak in front of the entire world just isn't a big deal.
Based on her comments, Waters appears perfectly content with the idea of North Korea telling the U.S. what to do, and when.
“The United States State Department must be stacked up to deal in diplomacy,” Waters said.
“I want us to be very careful, very alert to what is happening and to avoid war,” she eloquently added.
It’s not clear whether Waters has ever been threatened in her life, because she seems extremely adverse to protecting the people of this country.
