Another day, another reason for Maxine Waters to call for the impeachment of President Trump.
Never mind this one doesn’t qualify as a “high crime or misdemeanor,” either.
Nevertheless, Mad Maxine wants Trump’s head, politically speaking.
Waters issued a lengthy screed on Friday, calling Trump every nasty name in the book and demanding his impeachment.

“Donald Trump is a racist and indecent man with no good values who is woefully unfit and undeserving of the office in which he serves,” she declared in a tweeted statement.
She added he’s a “deeply flawed human being with no understanding of public policy…”
Waters said Trump’s alleged comment, referring to Haiti and African countries as “sh*tholes” “underscores everything we already know about him: he is a hopeless and ignorant bigot.”
Waters claimed if those countries had “white majorities, he might actually care about them.”
“Donald Trump is an embarrassment and a national disgrace,” she huffed. “Members of Congress have a responsibility to the American people and our democracy to impeach him,” she said, citing “name-calling” and “the disrespect of women” as two reasons why.
She concluded, “Congress has a constitutional responsibility to impeach him without delay.”
Insulting a country, which he denies, is just the latest flimsy reason Waters is offering to impeach Trump. She called for impeaching for name-calling in November.
When asked what she hopes to achieve with her frequent “Impeach 45” chants around the country, Waters responded, “I have learned over the years that I’ve been in this business that there a few people who are willing to speak truth to power and to talk about what really is bothering our society and our democracy.
“It is not thought well of to step outside of that box,” Waters said on Bloomberg TV.
“When I talk about impeachment, I describe what I think about this president. I think he’s deplorable and I think he defined himself in the campaign the way that he mocked and mimicked a disabled journalist, the way he talked about grabbing women by their private parts,” she said.
“The way he called names of his peers, etc., etc.,” Waters told Bloomberg, apparently referring to his Republican primary opponents.
“I think that’s unacceptable, and for people to allow this kind of behavior to be normalized is beyond what I believe our democracy should be all about, and so I encourage people and I inspire people and I show people that you don’t have to be intimidated. You don’t have to be afraid and you don’t have to be traditional,” she said.
“You need to step outside of the box and tell it like it is. That’s what I do.
“Everywhere I go, I say, ‘Impeach 45.'”
She added Trump should be impeached because “there’s a belief that there has been collusion” with Russia.
“It’s all there,” she insisted.
As ABC notes, “When it comes to impeachment, the Constitution lists ‘treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors,’ as justification for the proceedings…”
Now insulting countries and name-calling are high crimes?
