Maxine Waters Goes Off On Trump in Epic Rant: ‘Not Only Is He Racist, He Is an Embarrassment’
Congresswoman Maxine Waters joined Joy Reid on MSNBC’s All In With Chris Hayes tonight.
Waters has been one of the most vocal opponents of President Trump‘s, and Friday evening was no exception. Reid asked the California congresswoman for her opinion of the much-discussed “shithole” remark and she didn’t hold back.
Waters called him almost every name in the book including “scumbag,” “racist,” and “the most despicable human being that could possibly ever walk the earth”:
I have called him what I know him to be for a long time. Remember when I called him a scumbag. I’ve called him a racist, deplorable, despicable, adding to what others are calling him––a moron, ignorant, on and on and on. The United States of America is being represented by the most despicable human being that could possibly ever walk the earth. I don’t know when Americans are going to tire of this lying man. It has been documented that he has told over 2,001 lies since he has been in office. He name-calls. He basically disparaged a United States congresswoman and basically said that she would do anything for a contribution. Talked about, as you know, during the campaign grabbing women by their private parts. What more do we need see or hear from this racist man. Not only is he racist, he is an embarrassment for this country.
The president wasn’t Waters’ only target. She later tore into Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and said, “He is not a real leader.”
Reid asked Waters if she’s going to the State of the Union. Waters said, “Oh, no.”
