It may be time to retire, Maxine.
The California congresswoman suffered a brain glitch while attacking President Trump during an appearance on MSNBC on Sunday.
The 80-year-old representative, poised to become chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee if Democrats recapture the majority, claimed Republicans want to do away with Social Security.
“I think that we will take up these issues that have been neglected,” Waters told Joy Reid.
“And Social Security, Medicare and Medi-Cal are very important and (Mitch) McConnell is already talking about cutting these very, very…” she said, before struggling to speak, “programs!” Waters finally blurted out.
It’s not the first time Waters has glitched.
Waters was speaking to MSNBC’s Katy Tur last year when she had a verbal malfunction.
Waters was once again slamming President Trump and spinning her Russia conspiracy theories when she questioned the patriotism of Trump supporters and said, “I just don’t understand why they don’t call it like it is and recognize that evidence is pouring in and it’s growing, or what— is matt— what, what is wrong with them, I just don’t quite understand,” she struggled to say.
Speaking with Yahoo News earlier that year, Waters was talking about China’s role in containing North Korea, and momentarily appeared confused about what she was discussing.
“Those in China have a great trading relationship, they sell an awful lot of stuff to North Korea,” she said.
“And so (the Chinese) president is warning Trump, ‘okay, don’t start talking about preemptive strikes. We want a diplomatic solution,'” Waters said, speculating about China’s conversations with Trump.
The 78-year-old continued, “‘We do not want war in, uh, uh, uh, North Korea — North, uh, um, um, Korea at all,'” struggling to complete her thought.
