California Congresswoman Maxine Waters isn’t doing so well. For over a year, Waters has attached her political career to the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
Now that Trump’s popularity is rising, Waters seems to be getting desperate. At a hearing on former President Barack Obama’s unpopular regulations for automobile lenders last Tuesday, she had a screaming meltdown on the floor of Congress.
It started when Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Kelly suggested that Congress try to unite Americans, instead of dividing them.
“We are trying to make sure we are making America great every day in every way and the best way to do that is to stop stalking about discrimination and start talking about the nation. We’re coming together as a people, in spite of what you say,” Kelly told Waters during a heated exchange.
In response, Waters went berserk.
“Mr. Kelly, please do not leave. Because I want you to know that I am more offended as an African American woman than you will ever be!” Water shouted into the microphone. “And this business about making America great again, it is your president that’s dividing this country!”

“Don’t talk to me about the fact that we don’t understand … that’s the attitude that’s been given toward women time and time again,” Waters continued, her voice trembling. Kelly attempted to interject and calm the situation. Waters refused to listen.
During her rant, committee chairman Tom McClintock’s repeatedly warned Waters that her behavior was inappropriate, which she ignored.
“I respect the chair, but don’t stop me in the middle when you didn’t stop him in the middle, and so I shall continue!” Waters shouted.
“I don’t appreciate that you did not interrupt him when he was making those outrageous remarks about him knowing more about discrimination than I know about discrimination,” she continued. “I resent that and I resent the remark about making America great again!”
