Maxine Waters Fires Back at Trump Over IQ Jab: He’s the One Everyone Calls ‘Ignorant’

Last night at the Gridiron Dinner, per multiple reports, President Trump took a swipe at Congresswoman Maxine Waters and joked about how she should take an IQ test.

Trump was riffing on how she talks about impeaching him before making that IQ remark.

Waters appeared with MSNBC’s Joy Reid this morning and said, “This President has been called stupid, he has been called ignorant, and even his Secretary of State did not deny that he called him a moron. And so he has no credibility.”

She said she expected him to say “racist remarks about me” and added, “I’m told he wasn’t funny at all.”

Waters brought up how everyone talks about Trump––he’s a liar, etc.––before reiterating her call for impeachment.

“The most important thing this country can do now,” she concluded, “is impeach this president and make sure we get rid of him and get ready for Pence in 2020.”
