After she herself has been calling for impeachment against President Donald Trump over the months, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, of California, got an unexpected surprise from a crowd of protesters who gathered outside her modest $4.5 million home and demanded she got impeached.
Over a dozen demonstrators led by Omar Navarro, who competed, and lost, against Waters in 2016, assembled in front of her home in LA.
“‘Hashtag Impeach Maxine.’ See Maxine is talking about impeaching President Donald Trump and yet she doesn’t ask herself what about her? What about her not doing her job for 35 years?” Navarro said.
“[Waters] obviously lives outside the district, and that’s a representation of who she is and who she’s serving. She’s not representing the interests of her own district… People are homeless in Los Angeles, while this person right here [gestures to Waters’ home] is out of touch with what’s going on in society,” he added.
Navarro is currently hard at work preparing for the primaries next year where he will again challenge Waters.
The protesters were praised on the social media for standing up to the California lawmaker.
“Sad thing, they keep voting her sorry butt in office,” one Mad World News reader commented on the site’s Facebook page. “She has been there 30 years, what has she done, nothing, not a thing. $ 200 thousand plus a year in salary, not counting benefits…healthcare. Primary example of what is wrong with our system and government.”
“Always wondered how a civil servant could become so filthy rich!” another wrote. “Since they are always wanting to investigate our President I think it’s time to turn the table and see how all these lifers in our government get so rich! Let’s start with Maxine, Bernie, and Warren!!! (i think it’s been welfare payments for these so-called government officials, in the highest amounts).”
“She been named one of the most crooked congresswomen or congressman every year since she was first elected,” yet another said. “But yet these fools keep sending her back. What a frigging joke.”
Some readers said other Washington officials should be removed from power along with Waters.
“Maxine Waters is the prime example of what is wrong with the people that represent us in Washington and in the state,” one reader commented. “This is why our founders only wanted these people to serve 2 to 4 years because they get corrupt after 16 months. It is at that time it is for the people to vote these people out of office and put other people in there and then vote them out and then the others. It’s the only way to control corruption in Washington DC.”
