On Monday, Josh Caplan, editor-in-chief of Vessel News, posted a video to Twitter of a conversation between Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and a Trump-supporting constituent who wanted to know why she is so obsessed with impeaching the president.
Waters responded with a string of mostly fact-free talking points and conspiracies, including one in which she claimed Trump and Putin are working to bring America down over oil.
Here’s a partial transcript posted by the Gateway Pundit:
Constituent: “Well I just want to talk about your representation in Washington and our President as well.
Waters: “I can’t stand him! He’s the most horrible man I’ve ever seen in my life!”
Constituent: “I love my President.”
Waters: “I’m glad you do! Your President is a dishonorable, lying man. He mocked a journalist. I’ve never seen a grown man do that! He talked about grabbing women by the private parts. He’s lies everyday. He’s in bed with Putin and the Russians about oil! And everybody around him are allies with the Kremlin and with the Oligarchs of Russia. They’re gonna take us down!”
The unidentified constituent, however, made it clear to Waters that she would “work every day to make sure that [Trump] isn’t impeached and that” Waters is.
The California Democrat responded by saying that a congresswoman can’t be impeached, which is true, although she can be censured, kicked out of Congress or voted out.
Here’s the tweet with the video:

People in her state should vote her out. This woman sounds nutty. She's begging to be fired.

That would be the best solution, but Waters is in an extremely safe district and has gotten away with nonsense like this for years.

It’s very believable.
The best part of this video, however, is the fact that someone actually confronted Waters for her constant harping, conspiracy theories and obsession with impeaching the president.
Waters, by the way, still has not condemned calls and threats to murder the president.
