“Those who are in his circle who are afraid of him need to be ashamed of themselves in the way they’re trying to dismiss the law and not being compliant and continue the big lie…that somehow the presidency was taken from him,” she says.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) on Sunday called former President Donald Trump “the worst threat to our democracy” that “anyone has ever known” during an appearance on MNSBC.
“The former president is the worst threat to our democracy that I have ever known, and perhaps anyone has ever known. Despite the fact that we’re on the other side of the issues and the aisles, Democrats, and Republicans. We’ve never seen anything like this,” Waters said on “The Sunday Show.
Mad Maxine went on to perpetuate the false Capitol “insurrection” narrative, and called conservative grievances about the fraudulent 2020 presidential election “the big lie.”
“This man has no respect for this democracy, and he supports those who basically invaded our Capitol,” Waters said. “He supports those who threatened his own vice president, Mr. Pence, and he continues to go along this separation line. He has destroyed patriotism. Those who are in his circle who are afraid of him need to be ashamed of themselves in the way they’re trying to dismiss the law and not being compliant and continue the big lie about this campaign that they have had that said that somehow the presidency was taken from him.”
Waters also vowed that Democrats will “go after him,” as if the last 5 years of Russian collusion and impeachment hoaxes weren’t enough.
“We are watching the greatest threat to our democracy right now in the way this president is handling himself and his inner circle who are all trying to defy the law. We are not going to give up. We are going after him. The American people deserve to have better than this past president,” she added.
Her unhinged remarks come as Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ approval rating hits all-time lows, with other polls showing Republicans now hold the largest lead against the Democrats for the 2022 midterms in 40 years.
