Auntie Maxine Waters has conservatives accusing her of wanting to do bodily harm to Cheeto-In-Chief President Donald Trump, although the Fox News and right wing set are clearly twisting her words. After speaking at an event last week where she made the quip of “taking Trump out,” Congresswoman Waters clarified the statement to mean she is leading a hopeful charge of impeachment.
Rep. Maxine Waters rejected Tuesday any suggestion that she was vowing to harm President Donald Trump last week when she said she would “take Trump out.”
“That’s absolutely ridiculous … that a 79-year-old grandmother who is a congresswoman and who has been in Congress and politics all these years doing any harm,” the California Democrat told CNN’s Chris Cuomo in an interview on “New Day.” “The only harm I might be doing to the President is I want him impeached.”
While speaking at the Ali Forney dinner — a gala for LGBT youth — in New York on Friday night, Waters — one of Trump’s fiercest critics on Capitol Hill — told the crowd she was motivated to “take Trump out” and received a huge ovation.
This comment was all the rage earlier this week on Fox News, who attempted to frame to obvious tongue-in-cheek jab as a threat. Bum Trump does need to get the hell out of the paint, and even members of his own party think so.
