California Rep. Maxine Waters, Democrat, turns 80-years-old on Wednesday — but she told MSNBC’s Joy Reid that she doesn’t want to hear a single “Happy Birthday” wish.
That’s because President Donald Trump is still in office, so her birthday can’t possibly be happy.
Poor Maxine. It must be tough to suffer so badly from Trump Derangement Syndrome that she’s spending her birthday pouting about the White House, instead of enjoying her golden years like the rest of America’s seniors,
Responding to Reid’s “Happy Birthday” wish on Tuesday, the liberal leader went off on a tangent about Trump. “My biggest birthday wish would be that we’re able to get a leader of this country who represents us — who has the respect of all of our allies,” Waters said. “Someone who has appreciation for the Constitution. Someone that doesn’t lie… with these tweets!”
She then went a little overboard, even for Waters’ normal anti-Trump rant.
“He doesn’t even know the words to the Star-Spangled Banner!” she said.
So what will she wish when she blows out 80 candles on her cake Wednesday night? “I would wish that we could remove [Trump] from office,” she told Reid.
Birthday or not, Waters said she won’t stop hounding voters about impeaching Trump. “I am the ranking member of the financial services committee of the United States House of Representatives,” Water said. “I guide my colleagues on financial services issues… I am going to continue to go after him.”
Of course, Waters should be careful what she wishes for.
Throughout her thirteen-terms as a Congresswoman, Waters has been accused of being one of the most corrupt politicians in America numerous times.

The liberal watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington named her the “Most Corrupt Member of Congress” a total of five times — in 2005, 2006, 2009, 2011, and 2017.
In fact, in 2010 Waters was charged in three counts of ethics violations over alleged misuse of former President Barack Obama’s 2008 bailout. Waters was accused by the ethics committee of funneling over $12 million in taxpayer cash into OneUnited bank, which her husband was heavily invested in.
