Waters struggles to respond to simple question

When MSNBC host Katy Tur asked Rep. Maxine Waters what the Democrat Party stands for, other than fighting against President Trump, Waters couldn’t give a straight answer.

In the interview Friday, Tur asked Waters, “Congresswoman, what do the Democrats stand for other than being against Donald Trump? What do you stand for other than trying to get Donald Trump impeached?”

“Oh, well, everyone knows that I am the ranking member of the Financial Services Committee and that I have spent many, many hours and days implementing the Dodd-Frank reforms,” Waters responded.

“As a strong Democrat who’s responsible for carrying out the values that we have, protecting the American people, and making sure that we have an economy that works for everybody, and that we, uh, rely on, depend on and respect the constitution… now what else would you like to know?” she remarked.

Tur pushed back, asking what are the Democrats doing to get their message out there, instead of just reacting to Donald Trump “day in and day out?”

Waters touted the town halls, where protesters have disrupted Republican town hall meetings across the country… but Tur’s basic question remained unanswered.
