Maxine Waters turns 80 on Wednesday, and she wants only one thing to celebrate it: President Trump’s impeachment.
During a Sunday appearance on MSNBC, revealed her birthday wish is a new president “who has an appreciation for the Constitution.”
“Congresswoman, your birthday is on Wednesday,” substitute host Jonathan Capehart told Waters, “so pre-Happy Birthday. But on Wednesday, if you could be granted one birthday wish, what would that be?”
“I guess now my biggest birthday wish would be that we’re able to get a leader of this country who represents us,” Waters responded.
“Who has the respect of all of our allies all over the world. Someone who has an appreciation for the Constitution,” the progressive continued.
“Someone that does not lie every morning when they get up with these tweets. Someone who not only respects women, but all of the people, and instead of dividing us, would take leadership to bring us all together,” the woman who called for mobs to confront Trump officials and tell them they’re not welcome, said.
“This is the greatest country in the world,” Waters declared, who earlier in the interview said her side are the real patriots.
“But he’s undermining our democracy,” she continued, “he is making us ashamed of him, and he is being destructive to this democracy.
“This is a man who’s criticizing NFL players because they’re not doing what he thinks they should do in saluting the flag in the way that he wants them to,” Waters said.
“He doesn’t even know the words to the Star Spangled Banner,” she declared, disgusted.
“And so, he is not truthful. He is a hypocrite and I would wish that we could remove him from office and go about getting the kind of president that we can all be proud of,” she said, apparently referring to Vice President Mike Pence, as he would become president?
“And if he’s not impeached, if he cannot be impeached, 2020 is coming up and I believe (the) American people are going to do the right thing for our country: Stand up for what is right and get rid of this man who is embarrassing us all,” she said.
With a big smile on his face, Capehart thanked Waters and again wished her a happy birthday.
