On Saturday in San Diego, long-time California Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D) renewed her call to “impeach 45” but this time added a comparison of President Trump to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. At least we assume it was Kim Jong Un, because she mispronounced the tyrant’s name.
“Impeach 45” has been “Auntie Maxine’s” mantra since January 2017 though it hasn’t really taken off like she’d hoped. Last year, she said, “Impeachment is about whatever the Congress says it is. There is no law that dictate impeachment. What the Constitution says is ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ and we define that.”
She added, “Bill Clinton got impeached because he lied. Here you have a president, who I can tell you and guarantee you is in collusion with the Russians to undermine our democracy. Here you have a president who has obstructed justice. And here you have a president who lies every day.”
That Russian thing turned up a big bunch of nothing, but nonetheless, Waters screams “impeach 45.”
“I don’t care what the Republicans say, I say impeach 45,” Maxine said over the weekend.
Then, Waters unoriginally compared the president to Jong Un, or Um, does it even matter to her?
“‘My gun is bigger than your gun. My rocket is more powerful than your rocket,’ and on and on and on," Waters mocked Trump. "All I see is two heads of state, Donald Trump and Kim Jong Um, both who have questionable agendas and questionable mental health.”
Let’s talk about questionable mental health for a second. The Democratic Party has Waters and folks like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who continually slips and says George W. Bush is president among countless other misspeaks. This isn’t even the first time Rep. Waters has flubbed on something relating to North Korea. In an interview last year, she was trying to figure out “North, um, um, um Korea.” Maybe that’s what happened this time. Waters was looking for the right ending to Kim Jong’s name and she just didn’t know it. Waters also confused herself when talking about Crimea, too — she called the country “Korea.”
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: TERM LIMITS.
