If the media was as fair and balanced as it pretended to be, the Democrat Party would constantly be serving up opportunities for delicious coverage for them.
For example, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is constantly delivering boatloads of insanity that should be perfect fodder for an interested media, but too often they simply let Waters get away with the many ridiculous things she says.
Just in the past month she’s called for the President’s impeachment – several times – then argued that she’s never said he should be impeached, only to argue for his impeachment again in her very next interview.
The unhinged liberal appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this morning to once again claim that she wasn’t calling for impeachment, while then arguing that the President should be impeached. This time, the panelists on Morning Joe had some fun mocking her incessant impeachment refrain.
During the conversation Huffington Post editor Sam Stein explained to her what collusion actually was before wondering if this is what she meant when arguing that Trump and Russia had colluded.
Sam Stein: “Collusion is very specific. It means that the Russian government or actors within were trying to elect Donald Trump. But I want to know what collusion means to you. That seems to be the standard by which you’re saying he should be impeached?”
Waters agreed and said that she was sure the Trump team had gotten help (and direction) from their supposed allies in Moscow. She argued that Trump had used Putin’s political playbook and that the calls to “lock up” Hillary Clinton had been stagecraft developed by Putin’s team. When Stein pressed her and asked if she really thought that Putin had developed the talking points and political plans for Donald Trump, Waters insanely agreed that she did. “I think that there was a cooperation in developing strategy about how they could ensure that Hillary Clinton was not elected,” Waters told him.
But that’s when Stein asked the big question – has any evidence that such collusion took place been uncovered?
“No, it has not been,” Waters admitted. “No, it has not. And I want you to know, every time I’ve talked about impeachment, I’ve said we’ve got to connect the dots, we’ve got to get the facts, we’ve got to do the investigation. That is what leads to impeachment, and I also said that Trump will lead us right there.”
Did you hear that folks? Maxine Waters just admitted that she believes something without ever actually seeing a single shred of evidence to support her belief. I’m pretty sure that is the definition of insane.
The panelists also had a little fun with Waters earlier in the interviewwhen she suggested that Trump was indeed heading for impeachment (even if there was no evidence that he’d done anything wrong).
Maxine Waters: “I believe when we get the subpoenas and we get the special counsel at work doing the real digging into whether or not there was collusion, and the other committees are trying to establish certain facts, we are going to learn a lot about the connections between this president, his allies and the Kremlin, and it’s going to be very revealing. And I know a lot of people don’t like to hear the word impeachment, but I believe it’s going to lead right to impeachment.”
Joe Scarborough: “You know people don’t like to hear the word impeachment, but we know you like saying it.”
John Heilemann: Waters is one of “the leading figures in singing out of that songbook.”
