On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) stated that President Trump is the most “deplorable” human she’s ever met, lacks any values, and is a danger.
Waters commented on her prior calls for Trump’s impeachment by saying, “I’ve long thought that there was a lot of smoke, even fire, and that everything that I have learned about this president, starting with the campaign itself, that people should have understood that there was something terribly wrong with him. As a matter of fact, I’ve said over and over again, I think he’s the most deplorable person I’ve ever met in my life. And I think, when you take a look at his allies and some in his Cabinet, all these people around him, with connections to the Ukraine or to Russia or to oil, everybody should have known that. We should have moved faster. Our intelligence committees have not moved fast enough, but I have my hopes for Mueller, as most people do. I think he’s going to connect the dots, and I think we’re nearing a constitutional crisis.”
She added, “He is a flawed man, with no real values, and no real appreciation or understanding for government or public policy.”
Waters later stated, “I’m betting on, when the dots are connected, and Mueller is aable to show collusion, I’m banking on the patriotism of some of the Americans, most of them. They won’t be able to stand with him if it is proven that they colluded, that they undermined our democracy, interfered with our elections, that they’re going to be able to see that this president is dangerous.”
