Democratic California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, a frequent Trump critic, blasted a Pennsylvania Republican for mentioning the prospect of “making America great again.”
Rep. Mike Kelly, who represents Erie and Butler, said on the House floor that lawmakers must work harder toward “trying to make sure that we’re making America great every day in every way.”
“Stop talking about discrimination and start talking more about the nation,” he said. “We are coming together as a people in spite of what you say.”
Before Waters was offered the floor, Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) — the presiding officer at the time — reminded Kelly to address remarks to the chair.
Waters, of South Los Angeles, began speaking and appeared to shout at Kelly, who was apparently turning to exit the House chamber. Her rant, which included her disgust with the slogan, ‘Make America Great Again,’ can be viewed below:
