(EMBARRASSING VIDEO) This Congresswoman Wants to Impeach Trump. But is She the One That's Unfit for Office?02/07/2017  Source: AAN   by: AAN Staff

Maxine Waters represents California's 43rd district, and is a former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus. She's been around for quite some time, so you'd imagine she'd have her finger on the pulse of American foreign policy.

You'd be wrong.

Yesterday,Waters attempted to make the case for President Trump's impeachment, and she launched into an incoherent rant that suggested she doesn't know the first thing about American foreign policy, or even current events. As the
American Mirror reports:
“How can a president who is acting the manner he is acting — whether he’s talking about the travel ban, the way he’s targeted Muslims, or whether he’s talking about his relationship to (Vladimir) Putin and the Kremlin and knowing that they have hacked our (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) and the (Democratic National Committee),” she said.

But then the already wobbly wheels began falling off Waters’ rhetoric wagon.

“And knowing that he’s responsible for supplying the bombs that killed innocent children and families in, um, in, um,” she said, forgetting the name before someone behind her murmured, “Aleppo.”

“Yeah, in Aleppo,” she said.

Waters continued, “And the fact that he is wrapping his arms around Putin while Putin is continuing to advance into Korea.”

Korea, Crimea, what’s the difference, besides spellings, cultures and continents?
Waters is almost 80 years old. You might forgive her for being a bit slow on the uptake. Although Water's early advocacy against the injustice of apartheid is laudable, her career since has been a long, swift tumble downhill. The California congresswoman has a long, sad history of saying really stupid things.  Over the years, Waters defended the environment of negligence at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that helped cause the housing crisis. She defended the violence that occurred during the LA riots, and she's threatened to nationalize oil companies.

The only thing that's clear about Waters rant is that she has no idea what she's talking about. At this point in her career, she's nothing more than an empty vessel to be filled with Democratic talking points.  It's clear that she's absolutely checked out. She should retire while she still has a speck of dignity.
