Corrupt congresswoman and Fidel Castro cheerleader, Maxine Waters (D-CA), claimed that liberals are more patriotic than Trump supporters.
“When we fight against this president, and we point out how dangerous he is for this society and for this country, we’re fighting for the democracy,” Waters said, during a bizarre anti-Trump rant on the floor of the House of Representatives.
“We’re fighting for America. We’re saying to those who say they’re patriotic but they’ve turned a blind eye to the destruction that he’s about to cause this country, ‘You’re not nearly as patriotic as we are.'”
Waters reiterated that its her “mission” to get Trump impeached.
“I oppose this president,” she added. “I do not honor this president. I do not respect this president.”
Waters, however, may not be the best spokesperson for freedom and democracy. She has frequently praised late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro—even chanting “Viva Fidel!” with a crowd during the dictator’s visit to New York City in September 2000.
Waters has also been dogged by major corruption accusations for years.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington put Waters on its list of the most corrupt members of Congress a whopping four times: in 2005, 2006, 2009, and 2011.
Waters’ corruption allegations started in 2004, when the Los Angeles Times accused her of channeling federal business to her relatives’ companies—helping them earn more than $1 million.
She was also accused of persuading U.S. Treasury to give federal aid to OneUnited Bank during the 2008 bank bailouts—without disclosing that she and her husband owned a large number of shares in the company. The bank received $12 million in bailout money from the federal government’s TARP program.
After nearly three years of congressional ethics investigations, led by members of her own party, Waters was cleared of charges
