It turns out Robert “Beto” O’Rourke and Maxine Waters have a lot in common.
They both want to impeach President Trump.
Appearing on the Showtime show “The Circus,” the Ted Cruz challenger admitted he wants to oust the president.
Asked where he stands on impeaching Trump, he responded, “I think that this is a legitimate topic for us to be talking about.
“I have seen too much to think that this president is fit to serve this country,” he said.
“Would you vote to impeach him right now?” MSNBCer Steve Schmidt asked.
“I would,” he confirmed, shaking his head affirmatively.
That’s undoubtedly music to the ears of Maxine Waters, who has repeatedly called for Trump’s ouster.
The California Congresswoman went after the president while accepting an award from the Stonewall Young Democrats in September.
At one point in the 20-minute speech, she bragged about threatening Trump supporters.
Speaking about Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s apology to Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the dozens of people interrupting his confirmation hearing this week, Waters said, “We don’t ask permission to protest. We protest,” triggering cheers.
“When we understand that we have to make America hear us and see us, and understand that we all have something to say,” she said, before adding she was going to give Feinstein a piece of her mind.
Waters went on to boast about when she urged her supporters to find Trump administration officials and harass them.
“There are those who said we lacked civility when I got up and talked about the President’s Cabinet, and I said if you see them anywhere, if you see them at a restaurant, if you see them in a department store, even at a gasoline station, just tell them you’re not welcome here or anywhere,” she said to wild cheers.
“And so, it frightened a lot of people, and of course the lying president said that I had threatened all of his constituents,” Waters said.
“I did not threaten his constituents, his supporters. I do that all the time, but I didn’t do it that time,” she said.
Speaking about the Stonewall group, Waters said, “When I compare what you’re doing with what we have in Washington, D.C., in the highest office in the land, I wake up in the middle of the night and all I can think about is I’m gonna get him.
“I’m gonna get him. I’m gonna get him,” she repeated.
“I’m in this fight and I’m not gonna move,” she told the crowd. “And, as you know, there’s a difference in how some of our leadership talk about how we should handle all of this.
“They say, ‘Maxine, please don’t say impeachment anymore.’
“And when they say that, I say impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment,” she said to applause.
