California Congresswoman Maxine Waters had another meltdown this weekend as she bloviated about what she thinks President Trump is doing to the country.
“We’re in a difficult time in this country,” Waters said during an appearance before the Teamsters union Local 630 in Los Angeles.
“We’re almost at a constitutional crisis in the United States of America,” she said, before changing her declaration and saying, “We’re at a constitutional crisis because we’ve got a president, the likes of which we’ve never seen before.
“You know, some people think his antics sometimes are funny, sometimes cute, sometimes unusual. And to say, ‘Well, you know, he’s going to learn to become presidential,'” Waters said.
“That’s a lie!
“He’s never going to be presidential,” she declared, waving her glasses at the silent audience.
“He’s never going to be presidential because he does not respect the Constitution of the United States of America and he is no friend to organized labor,” she said, unable to provoke a response from the crowd.
“Let me just say this: I know that some of our membership in various areas of the country said, ‘Well, you know, we don’t think we’ve gotten a fair shake. We don’t think government has paid enough attention to some of our rural communities and our little towns,'” Waters said.
“But I want you to know this: whether it is healthcare, or whether it is food stamps, or whether it is any of the issues dealing with the least of these.
“And whether it’s issues about whether or not our government and our elected officials are going to support the right to organize and support the right to bargain.
“It has not been Republicans,” Waters bellowed, “It is always Democrats. We’ve been there for you. We’re gonna stay there for you. And damn this president! We’re not going to let him destroy organized labor.”
Trump has enjoyed high amounts of support among union members compared to other Republicans.
After his inauguration, Trump was backed by 60 percent of union members.
While that number has fallen to 47 percent in a new poll cited by The Hill, it’s still higher than George W. Bush’s level of support among union households.
