Mad Maxine Waters: If You Support Trump, Your “Patriotism” Is Suspect

on

Maxine Waters had some fighting words for Trump supporters and their patriotism.

Opinion | One would think the claims of President Trump colluding with Russia to win his presidency would have stopped after two years of investigations, nothing to show and the closure of Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Think again… 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?

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.”

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.
