Waters Turns Into Babbling Mess After Constituent Corners Her on Taxes, Border Wall


It’s well established at this point that Rep. Maxine Waters is hardly anyone’s definition of composed and collected.

Whether she’s making blatantly erroneous claims about the state of the economy or making absurdly sacrilegious claims that she’s some gift from God to stop Trump, the California Democrat’s reputation has deservedly taken a considerable hit.

Waters’ absurdity hit a new low when a video surfaced her interaction with one of her alleged constituents.

The video is being credited to Twitter user Suzanne Armstrong.

The video starts inconspicuously enough. Waters and Armstrong exchange some pleasantries before the grilling begins.

“(Republicans) want to cut social security, and medicare and Medicaid,” Waters said, regurgitating far-left talking points.

“I want lower taxes, I want the wall built,” Armstrong responds without skipping a beat.

“That’s OK, we have different opinions,” Waters responds in a patronizing tone. Armstrong persisted in her inquiry.

“I don’t want a sanctuary city,” Armstrong said.

Without actually addressing any of Armstrong’s concerns, Waters went back to parroting far left gibberish.

“What’s important for me are our seniors, we cannot cut their social security,” Waters rambles on. “That is so bad.”

“Let’s protect the people that live here, the citizens, and not give free stuff away to people that don’t live here,” Armstrong said, echoing the sentiments of what many Americans feel about the massive strain on American taxpayers that illegal immigrants can present.

Waters’ response to her constituent’s noted concerns? Waters kept babbling on about how people need housing and food. Obviously, people need that.

But again, what about the undue strain illegal immigrants and sanctuary cities can have on people legally living in this country?

“We’ve got to ensure our veterans are taken care of, our seniors are taken care of,” Waters responds. Um … OK?

Waters’ insistence on not actually answering her constituent’s questions is beyond telling. Democratic leadership in 2018 simply don’t have substance. They have bullet points.

Waters’ inability to address a constituent’s concerns about illegal immigration speaks volumes. Sometimes, you can say a whole lot by saying virtually nothing.

In the curious case of Maxine Waters, she clearly is saying that she couldn’t care less about what her constituents are concerned about. And even if she were concerned, Waters can offer nothing but empty far-left platitudes.

That’s an incredibly accurate microcosm of the Democratic Party in 2018.
