The president’s withdrawal from the Iran deal has sent Mad Maxine Waters (D-CA) into a tizzy. The far-left congresswoman from California is so disturbed that she is – once again – calling for the impeachment of President Trump.
Ms. Waters vented her frustration on Twitter with the following:
Trump, further isolating the United States, thinks he knows better than our negotiators and all of our global allies who agreed to the Iran deal. How long do we have to suffer his gigantic ego and narcissistic behavior? Impeachment is the only answer.

Earth to Maxine: narcissistic behavior and gigantic egos are not impeachable offenses. But that fact alone won’t stop Mad Max from issuing another political fatwah against the commander-in-chief. Ms. Waters has been beating out her drumbeat of appeals to impeach the president ever since he took office. But this week, it seems the U.S. Representative is really on a tear. Just a few days ago, Waters felt an uncontrollable urge to rebuke and condemn the president: “We’re gonna stay there for you,” Ms. Waters bellowed, “And damn this president! We’re not going to let him destroy organized labor.”
As a prominent voice on the left, Mad Max has uttered more than a few gems in her time. Among them:
“I have a right to my anger, and I don’t want anybody telling me I shouldn’t be…and that something’s wrong with me because I get angry.”
“I think that when you saw Donald Trump absolutely calling Hillary Clinton crooked, the “lock her up, lock her up,” all of that was developed. I think that was developed strategically with people from the Kremlin, with Vladimir Putin.”
Then there’s my personal favorite, “I have to march because my mother could not have an abortion.” Statements like these make one wonder what Ms. Waters is thinking. But then one must conclude that perhaps there is no thinking involved in Maxine’s rhetoric. It is instead a never-ending stream of semi-consciousness that she foists upon the American public.
On A Roll
Perhaps Ms. Waters feels empowered by her recent recognition as one of the “100 most influential people in the world” awarded to her by Time Magazine. (This is not satire, this really did happen.) Commenting about Maxine’s elevation to this most august community, actor Yara Shahidi opined, “Auntie Maxine, has made my generation proud to be [her] nieces and nephews.” Shahidi went on to pronounce Waters as someone to be “adored and admired.”
Being a conservative has many advantages. Being able to expose the ranting and ravings of wild Maxine is high on that list. She never disappoints, with each farcicality topping the previous absurd remark. It might be advisable if Ms. Waters popped a Xanax now and then to give the public a break, but then we might miss such gems as Mad Maxine lamenting the fact that her own mother wasn’t allowed to kill her pre-birth.
