To say that Maxine Waters has had a hard week would be an understatement.
After making disgusting comments about Trump supporters she has faced intense criticism.
But none of her criticism compares to the news she just got that will destroy her career.
President Donald Trump and Congresswoman Maxine Waters have never gotten along well. Waters is determined to be the face of the anti-Trump movement, and at times has said absolutely disgusting things about Trump. But Trump has fired back, referring to her as a “low IQ individual.”
Water’s latest stunt to oppose Trump involved her telling a crowd of supporters that the next step to resisting Trump is harassing his administration officials in public. She specifically told them to stalk them at restaurants, gas stations, and department stores.
This came after a series of events targeting Trump officials occurred, including Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, and Senior Advisor Stephen Miller.
All three of them were harassed in restaurants, all because they work for President Trump.
This isn’t sitting well with many people. Even Democrats have been forced to say that Waters’ comments went too far.
And an Arizona representative is so upset that he has officially introduced a measure that would censure Rep. Waters and ask her to resign. Rep. Andy Biggs filed the measure saying that her comments do “not become somebody who’s in Congress” and that she deserves disciplinary action.
The measure calls on Waters to apologize to Trump administration officials, and to release a statement making it clear that violence and harassment aren’t acceptable ways to protest, on top of her resigning from her house seat.
While many Democrats, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have rebuked the comments made by Waters, it doesn’t appear that any are supporting the measure promoted by Biggs.
Despite Nancy Pelosi rebuking Waters, President Donald Trump is touting both of them as the new faces of the Democrat party. Trump took to Twitter to say that together the two of them will “Make America Weak Again!”
Congratulations to Maxine Waters, whose crazy rants have made her, together with Nancy Pelosi, the unhinged FACE of the Democrat Party. Together, they will Make America Weak Again! But have no fear, America is now stronger than ever before, and I’m not going anywhere!

On top of the possible career ending legislation promoted by Rep. Biggs, the American people are resisting her. A petition hosted on the White House’s own website has gathered over 50,000 petitions calling for her to be expelled for her comments.
If the petition reaches 100,000 signatures in the next month, the White House will be required to comment.
With the way that President Donald Trump has talked about Maxine Waters in the past, that comment is sure to be brutal. He almost assuredly is in favor of removing her from office, and will support measures to do that.
President Trump has come strongly to the aide of his officials who have been harassed in public, even attacking the restaurant that kicked his Press Secretary out of.
This behavior is not okay, and the reaction to Waters’ comment proves that.
Do you think Maxine Waters should be removed from office?
