Maxine's Leadership Called a 'Travesty'

Maxine Waters is a big opponent to President Trump and does a good job of making insane comments. But now, GOP colleagues are pointing to her incompetence as the Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee.

According to Fox News:

Tensions between House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and ranking member Rep. Patrick McHenry, R.-N.C., reportedly overflowed Thursday during a hearing with bank regulators.

Waters abruptly ended the nearly three-and-a-half hour session with little warning, Republicans complained, while McHenry and at least one Democrat still wanted to ask questions, Politico reported.


"This is a travesty the way you've handled this," McHenry shot back at Waters after she refused his attempt for a parliamentary inquiry.

McHenry and other Republicans say Waters' behavior is part of a pattern, although the two have expressed their hopes of bipartisanship on several issues, including the reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program, according to Politico.

Waters' ability to comprehend the law and parliamentary procedure has been called out in the past especially when she got in an argument with Treasury Secretary Mnuchin during a hearing when he wanted to leave to meet with a foreign dignitary.
