Video: Maxine Waters questions patriotism of ‘dictator’ Trump’s supporters

While appearing on this weekend’s edition of MSNBC’s AM Joy, Rep. Maxine Waters, the California Democrat obsessed with the idea of impeaching President Trump, referred to the president as a dictator and questioned the patriotism of those who support him.

“These Republicans who think they are more patriotic than anybody else, that somehow they wave the flag better, we’re the real patriots, we’re standing up for this country,” she said.

Waters claimed that Republicans are “frightened” of Trump, saying “they don’t have the guts to stand up to him.”

Trump, she further said, “is looking more like a dictator than a president, and so I’m questioning the patriotism of all of those Republicans who are allowing this president to side with Putin.”

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Here’s video of her comments:

She also claimed that the whole Trump-Putin meeting was all about drilling for oil in the Arctic.

“I maintain it’s all about drilling in the Arctic,” she said.  “It’s all about the oil. Tillerson is the one who negotiated the big billion dollar — multi-billion dollar deal with put on the drill in the arctic. I think that’s the top of his agenda. That’s why he’s there as secretary of state.”

As the American Mirror noted, it’s not the first time Waters has questioned the patriotism of Trump supporters.

“Mr. Speaker, my position against this president and his administration is clear. I oppose this president. I do not honor this president. I do not respect this president,” Waters said during a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives back in March.

“African-Americans have struggled and fought historically, many African-Americans have paid a huge price fighting for justice and equality in this country, have died for it. I don’t have to call the names of Martin Luther King and all the others. We have paid a price, we have fought.

“But guess what? Despite the fact that America has not always been there for us, we’ve always been there for America. We have fought in America’s wars. We have suffered discrimination, we have suffered isolation and undermining. But we stand up for America, oftentimes when others who think they are more patriotic, who say they are more patriotic, do not,” she said.

“When we fight against this president, and we point out how dangerous he is for this society and for this country, we’re fighting for the democracy. We’re fighting for America. We’re saying to those who say they’re patriotic but they’ve turned a blind eye to the destruction that he’s about to cause this country, ‘You’re not nearly as patriotic as we are.’”

The American Mirror added:

Waters made it clear her mission is not to represent her constituents, but destroy Trump.

The president “is not good for America,” she said.

“African-Americans know this. The Black Caucus understands this. And for those members of the Black Caucus representing our leadership, who went to meet with him, they have laid out to him all of this, what our care and concerns are all about. But in the final analysis, we really don’t expect anything from him.

“And my mission and my goal is to make sure that he does not remain president of the United States of America,” Water said.

Here’s video of that speech:

We reached out to Waters’ Washington, D.C., office to find out if she has any concerns that her rhetoric will help spark violence against Trump and those who support him.  Waters has yet to answer our questions, even after the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., by a crazed supporter of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
