Congresswoman Maxine Waters reaffirms 'impeach Trump' mission during BET ceremony

Twitter									Maxine Waters

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said she doesn't think President Trump believes in anything or cares about anything. I think it's a way of quieting voices that maybe people in power don't want to hear because it potentially interferes with their ability to do what they do and say what they want to say and exercise power in certain ways... "It seems as though I say things they like", she said in response.

"I love it", said Waters speaking about the new name given by the millennials who've "adopted" her.

In an interview on The View, Waters was asked if she was at all disturbed about reports that President Trump's phone conversations with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull were leaked to the press, undermining national security.

"Putin or Pence?" Behar asked.

She called Trump a "a deplorable human being" who "mimicked and mocked a disabled journalist, talked about grabbing women by their private parts, stalked Hillary Clinton".

"Not only will we resist you, we will impeach you, Donald Trump" she said to a cheering crowd. Maxine Waters took a step back from her daily duties to chat with The Breakfast Club, addressing everything from her "outspoken" demeanor to her love for Tupac Shakur.

The interviewer then reminded her that the vice president would then become president. When you can recognize your mom is in trouble but also recognize that, that is your mother and you can do everything you can for her, that many people will fall into trouble and I have this theory that when people know better they do better, so a lot of mothers don't know any better unfortunately young often times have children, so Tupac for me was very special.

"So I believe it is possible to impeach him", she said.

California representative and forever queen of the millennial beating heart, Maxine Waters, gave us yet another magical, meme-worthy moment when she refused to allow Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to dodge her questions during his testimony in front of the Financial Services Committee, invoking House procedural rules to declare she was "reclaiming [her] time". I may not like it, but I feel this: "what you don't want to hear, don't listen to it... but when you start to talk about limiting voices and opinions, I think that's risky in a democracy".
