After receiving a lifetime achievement award at Stonewall Young Democrats on Saturday, Maxine Waters took to attacking the Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
After repeated statements pertaining to the removal of the Presieent from office, Mrs Waters then brought up a remark pretaining to Mike Pence in the line of succession to the Presidency after which she claimed, “Look, one at a time, you knock one down then we’ll be ready for Pence, we’ll get him too.”
You can see the footage here with a part transcript beneath:
“We don’t ask permission to protest. We protest. When we understand that we have to make America hear us, and see us, and understand that we all have something to say. And so I probably will have a conversation Dianne and then we’ll talk about it and I’ll I’ll say “Dianne remember there are those who said that we lack civility when I got up and talked about the president’s cabinet? And I said ‘if you see him Anywhere. If you see him at a restaurant. If you see him in a department store. Even at a gasoline station. Just tell him you’re not welcome here or anywhere. And so that frightened a lot of people and of course the lyin’ president said that I had threatened all of his constituents, I did not threaten his constituents, his supporters, I do that all the time but I didn’t do it that time. When I compare what you’re doing with what we have in Washington DC in the highest Office of the land I wake up in the middle of the night and all I can think about is I’m going to him. I’m gonna get him. I have never seen anything like this before in my life. And so to all of our elected officials to Betty to all of you progressives that are here we’ve got to work to do and it’s not simply about resistance it’s about ensuring that we help people to understand that we deserve better, that this deplorable despicable human being that occupies a white house should not be there we should not be comfortable with it we should not think about how somebody else is going to deal with this is all of our fight, and everyday I say I’m in this fight. I’m in this fight and I’m not going to move and as you know there’s a difference, and how some of our leadership talk about how we should handle all of this. They say, “Maxine please don’t say impeachment anymore,” and when they say that I say impeachment. And impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment..”
