On Sunday, California Rep. Maxine Waters spoke at the First African Methodist Episcopal Church in Los Angeles, where she claimed she was sent by God to Washington after an off-the-rail rant against President Trump.
“You’ve gotta know that I’m here to do the work that I was sent to do, and as pastor said to me when I came in this morning, when God sends you to do something, you just do it!” she said ending her speech. “So I have a message: I’m going back to Washington tomorrow morning, I’m going to tell them pastor told me to come here and just do it!”
The theme of her speech, as any of her speeches, is resisting President Trump and his administration. "I'm not about to sit quietly and allow the President of the United States, or anybody else, to undo all that has been done to make this a great country," she said (despite the booming economy and incredibly low unemployment).
In her speech, Waters made several off-the-wall comments, including claiming that people get jailed every day for stealing a piece of gum.
"We still represent the highest numbers in diabetes, heart problems, and AIDS, and all of the diseases that you can mention," she claimed.
“I am in this fight,” she said even though her opponents are trying to “intimidate” and “frighten” her.
"I don't know 'shut up,' I don't know intimidation. I don't know fear," Waters railed.
Well, at least the first part seems to be right.
