Rep. Maxine Waters went into a rant against President Trump while speaking to Teamsters union Local 630 in Los Angeles this past weekend, at one point shouting, “Damn this president!”
“We’re almost at a constitutional crisis in the United States of America. We’re at a constitutional crisis because we’ve got a president, the likes of which we’ve never seen before,” she declared.
“You know, some people think his antics sometimes are funny, sometimes cute, sometimes unusual. And to say, ‘Well, you know, he’s going to learn to become presidential,’” Waters said.
“That’s a lie! He’s never going to be presidential! He’s never going to be presidential because he does not respect the Constitution of the United States of America and he is no friend to organized labor,” she claimed.
“Let me just say this: I know that some of our membership in various areas of the country said, ‘Well, you know, we don’t think we’ve gotten a fair shake. We don’t think government has paid enough attention to some of our rural communities and our little towns,’” Waters said.
“But I want you to know this: whether it is healthcare, or whether it is food stamps, or whether it is any of the issues dealing with the least of these. And whether it’s issues about whether or not our government and our elected officials are going to support the right to organize and support the right to bargain!”
