While issuing a largely fact-free statement to reporters on Monday, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., said that Pres. Donald Trump must eventually be impeached and claimed that Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded Korea.

“I have not called for the impeachment (of President Donald Trump) yet,” she said. “He’s doing it himself.”

CNS News added:

On Friday, Waters said she hoped Trump would not serve for four years: “And my greatest is to lead him right into impeachment.”

On Monday, Waters clarified: “Let me just say the statement I made was a statement in response to questions and pleas that I am getting from many citizens across this country. What are we going to do?

“How can a president, who is acting in the manner that he’s acting, whether he’s talking about the travel ban, the way that he’s talking to Muslims, or whether he’s talking about his relationship to Putin, and the Kremlin — and knowing that they have hacked our D-triple-C  — DNC, and knowing that he is responsible for supplying the bombs that killed innocent children and families in, um – in, um– yeah, in Aleppo,” Waters said. (She apparently meant Yemen, since the horrors of Aleppo were all on President Obama’s watch.)

She continued:  “And the fact that he is wrapping his arms around Putin while Putin is continuing to advance into Korea — I think that he is leading himself into that kind of position where folks will begin to ask, what are we going to do? And the answer is going to be, eventually, we’ve got to do something about him. We cannot continue to have a president who’s acting in this manner.  It’s dangerous to the United States of America.”

CNS News gave Waters the benefit of the doubt, indicating that she said “Crimea.”  But as you can tell from the video below, she clearly said “Korea,” not “Crimea.”

Suffice it to say, Waters isn’t exactly the sharpest pencil in the box…
