Maxine Waters- Trump’s Cabinet is a “Bunch of Scumbags”

After Hillary Clinton called Trump Supporters “a basket of deplorables” we embraced it and turned it against her. Now Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), has called Trump’s Cabinet a “bunch of scumbags.”

“I just think the American people had better understand what’s going on. This is a bunch of scumbags. That’s what they are. Who are all organized around making money.” Maxine Waters

Waters is proud of her remark. She tweeted the clip after the interview on MSNBC. But she might want to reconsider her remark in the light of who she’s lumping together in that “bunch.”

When pressed by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, she claimed her “bunch of scumbags” remark was aimed specifically at Rex Tillerson, the newly installed Secretary of State. Who, we might note, fired many personnel on the  7th floor of the State Department (the “big dogs) because they were Obama holdovers. Yay for him.

“Well I tell you this, [Secretary of State Rex] Tillerson is there to get these sanctions lifted. I believe it, just watch him. He’s gonna [sic] continue to work on it. This is important for him. He was there because he negotiated the deal with Exxon, with [Russian President Vladimir] Putin.” Maxine Waters

The problem is when you go around calling highly qualified, successful people “scumbags,” it should come back to bite you. Pretty sure the left wing news will soft-pedal or not mention her remark. But Twitter noticed. The people who stood with her were the most disturbing as they actually appeared to outnumber the normal folks. But here area few of the responses of Trump supporters:

Waters has repeatedly called for the impeachment of President Trump, and she has made some incredible statements since she’s been in Congress. Since 1991, I might add.

She once told the Tea Party to go “straight to hell.” She objected to Tea Party members waving the American flag. She’s had trouble remembering “Aleppo” – perhaps her and Gary Johnson were smoking at the same party.

“And the fact that he is wrapping his arms around Putin while Putin is continuing to advance into Korea.”

Well, not so much, Maxine. She did remember later that she meant Crimea, but hey, everyone’s entitled to be wrong sometimes.

Maxine Waters just happens to be wrong more than most.
