Mad Maxine Waters Has A Vile Message For Trump Supporters: If You Support Trump, Your ‘Patriotism’ Is Suspect
DJ Mellons Opinion |You would think it’s about time to move on, with the taxpayer’s shelling out all this dough to try and prove Trump is a spy, Trump is a Russian puppet, Trump is a traitor, yada yada yada already.. President Trump colluding with Russia to win his presidency should have stopped after two years of investigations, with nothing to show and the closure of Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Wrong again Pelosi breath… anti-Trumper Maxine Waters is continuing to beat a dead horse as we saw in her interview on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” on Sunday.

Waters continued to rant about Russia and President Trump’s association with the Kremlin and Putin and even said there was an “obvious enemy” hacking into our electoral system.
The most ridiculous part of her interview was when Senator Lindsey Graham was brought up and she questioned the patriotism of anyone who supports President Trump.
This woman is not giving up her efforts to impeach Trump, even if she needs to dig up dirt that isn’t there.
Democratic California Representative Maxine Waters has made her disdain for President Trump very clear in the past.
This week was no different, but she went on to bash his supporters as well.
On Sunday, Waters appeared on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” with host Joy Reid.
During her time on the air, Waters explained that she had doubts about the patriotism of those Republicans who still support the President following the released of the Mueller report.
While speaking about Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham’s support for the President, Waters stated:
“One of the things you have to think about is this; who are the patriots? Who will stand up for America when our obvious enemy is basically hacking into our electoral systems?
ee that there are many people around this president who have interacted with those from Russia, from the Kremlin, and with Putin? Where are they coming from?
And I think when you ask yourself this question, you’d better be concerned about whether or not these are real patriots or whether or not they’re in the pockets of the president of the United States wishing to gain favor from the president and they’re going to stand up for him no matter what.”
She went on to say, “And so I call out their patriotism at this point this time. You take a look at this report, and you will be shocked at the information that’s unfolding.”
The Washington Examiner reported:
Waters’ call to action received a boost last week after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report when Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts publicly supported Rashida Tlaib of Michigan’s impeachment resolution, which she introduced in March.
Other advocates, including Reps. Al Green of Texas and Brad Sherman of California, who introduced a similar impeachment measure in January, added their voices to the chorus clamoring for Trump’s removal from office.
House Democratic leadership however, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., have adopted a more measured response. They want to see the full, unredacted Mueller report before holding a series of congressional hearings into the special counsel’s findings.
But Waters argued many Americans don’t have the patience want to wait.
“I can only tell you, I for one have been for impeachment for a long time. I’m going to continue to be for impeachment. I think he should have been impeached a long time ago.
And the American people are waiting on us to provide the leadership,” she said.
Here’s the transcript:
MAXINE WATERS: Let me just say that I have been calling for his impeachment for a long time because I understood very clearly who this man is, how he conducted himself during his campaign and the kind of information that we learned about him, even before Mueller came on board. We’ve been waiting for Mueller to make us comfortable with the fact that he is deplorable and not deserving of the presidency, and find all of the evidence, and we thought Barr, despite his background and what we know about him was going to step up to the plate and now we’re waiting on the public to make us do it. The Congress really does have to — really does have to step up to the plate…
You know, we’ve been waiting on everybody else to come up with the information and the facts to move us toward impeachment, and the public is waiting on us. Now we still don’t have, you know, the kind of coming together that we need to have in order to do the impeachment. However, I know we will move forward with hearings and I know that we’re going to be trying to get Mueller to come before our committees. I also know that there are some people calling for those folks who were interviewed by Mueller who testified against him should be coming before our committee. All of that is good. All of that is something that could be done, but the fact of the matter is, I think that when you look at this report, you can see that there is enough information there not only on obstruction of justice but also on collusion or conspiracy, whatever you want to call it, to move forward with impeachment on this president…
JOY ANN REID: That is a very different demeanor than we saw during the Bill Clinton presidency when people like Lindsey Graham, who was in the house at the time, and 13 other current United States senators on the Republican side not only wanted Bill Clinton to be impeached over lying about a sexual affair but voted to convict him. What do you make of the fact that people who at the time said that obstruction of justice and getting witnesses to lie was impeachable are now silent on the Republican side?
MAXINE WATERS: Well, if you’re referring to Lindsey Graham, you know that his word can not be trusted. Remember when he used to be a friend of John McCain? And remember when he turned on him?
So I don’t know where he would go with this except to say he is now in bed with the president of the United States of America and everything he does is about protecting this president no matter what he does. Lindsey does not have any real credibility and I pay no attention to what he has to say.
One of the things you have to think about is this: who are the patriots? Who will stand up for America when our obvious enemy is basically hacking into our electoral systems? Who is going to stand up for America and claim to be a patriot when they see that there are many people around this president who have interacted with those from Russia, from the Kremlin, and with Putin? Where are they coming from? And I think when you ask yourself this question, you’d better be concerned about whether or not these are real patriots or whether or not they’re in the pockets of the president of the United States wishing to gain favor from the president and they’re going to stand up for him no matter what.
And so I call out their patriotism at this point in time. You take a look at this report, and you will be shocked at the information that’s unfolding. I’m not shocked, because I and my staff began to look very closely at this president early on. And when we looked at all of his allies and the people who were connected with him and with Putin and the Kremlin and with the oligarchs in Russia, we determined something was very wrong, and we dubbed them the “Kremlin Klan.” The Kremlin Klan, as identified, has been on my face page on tweeter for almost two years. We know who they are and this report only confirms that. What more do we need to do? Okay, so if the Democrats can not decide that they are going to move forward with impeachment, I guess we are going to continue to go on with these investigations. How long are they going to go on with them? What more do they need to prove?
I can only tell you I, for one, have been for impeachment for a long time, I’m going to continue to be for impeachment. I think he should have been impeached a long time ago.
