California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters has made some outrageous claims since President Donald Trump was elected. However, the liberal lawmaker made her most insane statement yet during an appearance on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” this weekend — and critics say it’s proof she’s unfit to lead.
According to the liberal lawmaker, Trump’s joke at the Gridiron Club Dinner on Saturday about her was racist… because it questioned her intelligence.
The dinner is an event known for it’s humor. During his speech, Trump took jabs at his own White House as well as his political rivals. At one point, the president joked about Waters.
“Maxine Waters. How about that one? Maxine Waters, ‘He must be impeached!’ That’s all she knows how to say, ‘He must be impeached!’ Impeached! … But he’s done nothing wrong. Doesn’t matter, they say. What has he done wrong? ‘I don’t know! You got to be impeached!’” Trump told a room full of journalists at the annual roast.
“And then I say … I get in trouble for this, ‘She has to immediately take an IQ test.’ And people go crazy.”
Crazy, indeed. Waters ran to MSNBC to complain on Sunday, and told host Joy Reid the president was racist for joking about her intellect.

“Well, you know, this president has been called stupid, he has been called ignorant, and even his secretary of state did not deny that he called him a moron. And so he has no credibility. He has been name calling, he’s been saying all kinds of things,” Waters said.
“I certainly expected him to come out with some racist remarks about me. So he did exactly what I expected him do. And, by the way, I’m told he wasn’t funny at all,” she complained.
