Where’s the Outrage? Maxine Waters Vows to “Take Out Trump Tonight”

Here’s what Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters said recently to a New York audience. The remark was made ten days ago but appears to have just been dug up:

I’m sitting here listening, watching, absorbing, thinking about Ali even though I never met him. And with this kind of inspiration, I will go and take Trump out tonight.

Not the boxing Ali, another one.

Now, what did she mean by this? I dunno. Maybe impeachment, which she often calls for, although it would be hard to accomplish that in a single evening. Maybe she wants to punch him in the face. Maybe she wants to “take Trump out” to dinner. Or maybe she’s joking that she wants to assassinate him.

But any way you look at it, it’s hugely irresponsible for a lawmaker, particularly one with a wide and enthusiastic following among Trump haters, to be talking about taking him out. This from the party that supposedly stands against incendiary rhetoric.

If a conservative congressman had said he wanted to take Barack Obama out when Obama was president, the noise from Democrats and the media would be deafening. There would be pompous inquiries on the editorial pages of the New York Times into the violence and racism that lurks within every conservative. Commentary would be made on the the Second Amendment and the need to keep guns out of the hands of right-wing lunatics. National soul-searching would be recommended.

But if Maxine Waters says it about Trump, fine. Her heart’s in the right place, even if she’s taking it a little far. You know how good ‘ole Auntie Maxine is.

See, I may disagree with Democratic leaders, but they’re smart, and one thing they get is politics. And they understand that impeaching President Trump is a bad idea for them. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was asked a couple of weeks ago on CNN about impeachment: I don’t subscribe to that. If you’re talking about… Continue Reading

What? Are We Now Taking Maxine Waters Seriously?

It’s incredible that this woman, who has always been one of the more extreme and irresponsible voices of the Democratic Party, is somehow now mainstreamed, normalized, and taken seriously. Well, I guess if a lunatic fringe socialist like Bernie Sanders can nearly win the Democratic nomination, it’s not so suprising. Of course, she landed on MSNBC’s Morning… Continue Reading

Maxine Waters Says: “I Have Not Called for Impeachment.” Except, Many Times

Of course, Maxine Waters is always good for a laugh. But I don’t know if this is just her usual inanity. By dispatching one of their colleagues who is always willing to say anything, no matter how dumb, the Democrats have a useful tool to help them drill into the collective unconscious that Trump is not a… Continue Reading

Maxine Waters: Russian Dossier Trump Sex Allegations are True

I guess we’re at the point in this country where lots of people take Maxine Waters seriously.  Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters claimed Thursday without citing evidence that the “sex actions” included in an unverified dossier published by BuzzFeed in January about President Trump are true, the Washington Examiner reported. Speaking on MSNBC on Thursday, the… Continue Reading
