Maxine Waters is one of the most controversial members of Congress.
But even Waters found out there are some lines you can’t cross.
And Maxine Waters said seven words that not even Democrats would tolerate.
California Congresswoman Maxine Waters is once again facing criticism for her conduct.
Waters’ latest outburst occurred during a recent congressional hearing; Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan grilled Dr. Fauci about Dr. Fauci’s constant moving the goal posts, evasions and outright lies regarding when the mask mandates and lockdowns would go away and Americans would get their liberty back.
Like a power-mad tyrant, Dr. Fauci dismissed the idea that lockdowns deprived Americans of essential liberties and claimed a vague standard of when infections get to a point that Fauci deems low enough that the oppressive mask mandates, lockdowns and social distancing will go away.
To Jordan, that sounded like Fauci was setting up an impossible-to-meet standard to keep Americans in permanent lockdown and demanded Fauci state concrete levels of cases per day that would cause Fauci to support lifting lockdowns.
“Well, I want to know if that’s what Dr. Fauci–is it 90 percent Dr. Fauci? Is it 90 percent? That–that is what I would like to know. Give me some–give us some objective standards versus when certain things get reached we might be able to get back to having our liberty. When? What are the numbers?” Jordan asked.
Fauci ducked and dodged, weaseling his way out of answering Jordan’s questions in hopes of running out the time on Jordan’s five minutes of questioning.
“You are going to see a gradual–from right now we are at an unacceptably high level. We are at–on a daily basis it’s unacceptably high regardless of who you are. What you are going to see as more and more people get vaccinated and we get over 3 million people a day you are going to see a level of infection come down and down and gradually there will be more flexibility for doing the things that you are talking about,” Fauci filibustered.
Jordan’s time did run out and Committee Chairman South Carolina Democrat Jim Clyburn ruled Jordan’s time had expired and the next member of the committee could question Dr. Fauci.
Jordan pressed for Fauci to answer his question, but then Maxine Waters piped in yelling at Jordan to shut up.
“You need to respect the chair and shut your mouth,” Water snarled at Jordan.
That clearly upset Chairman Clyburn who signaled to Jordan that he would rebuke Waters once the session ended.
“Don’t worry about this. We–we are going to handle this and I think Mr. Jordan knows me very well and he knows full well that we are going to handle this. Your time has expired and the chair now recognizes,” Clyburn said to Jordan.
Jordan appeared happy with that response and thanked Clyburn.
This is not the first time Waters found herself in the middle of controversy.
Waters previously used incendiary rhetoric to urge liberal mobs to terrorize Trump officials in public over Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration.
But this time, members of her own party were taken aback by her conduct.
