Rep. Maxine Waters attacked President Donald Trump on Saturday for “undermining” former President Barack Obama, saying she will push for Democrats to “reverse” the “GOP tax scam” if Democrats retake control of the House in November’s midterm elections.
During an interview with MSNBC, Waters was apparently triggered by a question from host David Gura about the whopping 4.1 percent GDP growth in the second quarter, the highest number since 2014.
Rather than offer the Trump administration an ounce of credit for the booming economy, Waters got defensive and claimed the president’s economic proposals were “undermining” Obama’s legacy.
“Of course, the economy has improved, and of course he would like to take credit for all of that. But in the final analysis; when this country understands and feels what has been done with the tax scam and what that’s going to do for our deficit in this country, it’s going to be reversed. A combination of the tax scam and the tariffs will undermine all that has been done in the economy that was started by Obama.”
She also claimed Obama was responsible for the booming economy, which isn’t logical given the economy and markets have hit unprecedented levels that Obama was never able to achieve when he was in office for eight years.
Her bizarre comments came one day after the U.S. economy grew by 4.1 percent in the second quarter of 2018, marking the fastest economic expansion in nearly four years.
Waters also said she wants Democrats to repeal the GOP tax cuts, which has helped create millions of new jobs and accelerated the markets to historic levels.
Waters is apparently so blinded by her own hatred toward Trump that she wants to undo one of his most important accomplishments because it has arguably benefited the nation far more than anything Obama ever did.
Her insane rant on Saturday also comes after she called for Americans to scream at Trump Cabinet officials in public.
Last week, the California Democrat claimed she was “sent by God” on a mission to get Trump and hold him accountable for his actions.
Last month, she told a group of supporters at a California event to confront and harass Trump Cabinet officials when they are in public.
Her calls for violence resulted in pro-Trump Florida Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi being spit on and harassed by liberals, a mob of deranged liberals swarmed the home of DHS Secretary Kristjen Nielsen, and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was forced to get a Secret Service unit.
In a month, Waters has gone from repeatedly urging people to be “forceful” and “confrontational” with Trump officials to claiming that she is on a mission from God to harass the president and anyone who supports him. Her comments would never be tolerated by the media if she were a Republican lawmaker.
Ironically, she continues to make the perfect case for congressional term limits.
And now she has made it abundantly clear that she will push for Democrats to repeal Trump’s tax cuts if Democrats retake the House in November.
