The Washington Examiner reported yesterday that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) told a gala hosted by EMILY’s list, a PAC dedicated to electing female Democrats who support abortion rights, that she is putting her “career on the line” to speak out against President Trump.
Waters referred to the president as a “disgusting, poor excuse of a man,” and said that despite the opposition she will be pushing for Trump’s impeachment.
“…I’ve decided that no matter those who do dislike what I’m doing, no matter those who disagree with me, I feel absolutely certain that this country deserves better than Donald Trump,” Waters said.
Waters also said she has seen a boost in support from younger voters because of her “resistance to Trump,” saying she has gone from 46,000 followers to more than 300,000 on Twitter.
“We must take our anger, our pain, our collective strength to right this wrong, to resist this tyranny and to save our democracy from a man whose immoral character and distorted thinking are an imminent threat to our nation,” she said.
