THE AMERICAN MIRROR – VICTOR SKINNER
U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters continues to escalate her attacks against President Trump, urging followers to “fight back” and “impeach 45,” most recently at a Democratic cook off in South Carolina.
Waters appeared before South Carolina’s Orangeburg County Democrats for the group’s 19thannual cook off, where Waters’ “hyper-aggressive” attacks on Trump whipped the crowd of roughly 1,000 into a tizzy, the Post and Courier reports.
Waters waded into the controversy surrounding a Gold Star widow who claimed Trump disrespected the family during a condolence call last week, which Trump has denied, and alleged Gen. John Kelly dishonored himself by defending the president.
“We’re demanding an apology,” Waters told the crowd. “General Kelly had a great reputation before he went to the White House. Everybody who goes there gets contaminated. And so he stood up for the president, he lied for the president, and he now doesn’t have the credibility that a four-star general should have.”
She then framed the current political climate as “us versus them,” and vowed to “impeach 45,” referring to Trump, the 45th president.
