During yesterday’s Pennsylvania rally, President Trump shared his thoughts regarding California Democrat Maxine Waters, reports The Hill.
Criticism of Maxine Waters
Waters has ongoingly slammed President Trump and called for his impeachment on countless occasions. Last year she furthermore told the Associated Press that she would never sit down with the President or hear him out on any matter whatsoever:
“I don’t see myself meeting with him, sitting down with him, believing anything he would say or even respecting anything he would say. It would not be honest on my part to go to any ceremonies with him or to pretend I am having a decent conversation with him. My spirit tells me I cannot be silent. I must address this so-called president, no matter where it takes me.”
Despite Waters’ aforementioned remarks and multiple calls for his impeachment, President Trump mostly remained silent regarding Waters. However, that changed on Saturday when the President weighed in with his personal thoughts about the California Democrat:
“Maxine Waters, a very low IQ individual. Did you ever see her? ‘We will impeach him. We will impeach the President.’ But he hasn’t done anything wrong. It doesn’t matter, ‘we will impeach him.’ She’s a low IQ individual. She can’t help it. She really is. ‘We will impeach him.’ But we have Maxine Waters and plenty of others.”
The Pennsylvania audience met President Trump’s preceding remarks with massive cheers and applause.
Calls for President Trump’s Impeachment
Many of President Trump’s critics have called for his impeachment at one point or another. The President’s supporters and backers have countered the foregoing calls, affirming that disliking President Trump and his rhetoric, policies, or tweets does not merit impeachment.
By law, a President cannot be impeached unless he or she commits treason, bribery, high crimes, or other misdemeanors. Thus far, the sitting 45th President has yet to commit any of the aforementioned crimes.
President Trump’s lack of committed impeachable offenses has not stopped Waters from continuously calling for his impeachment.
During last month’s annual California Democratic Party convention, Waters delivered the hereinafter remarks:
