Maxine Waters Calls Trump an ‘un-American Traitor’ in Fiery Twitter Rant

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-California) unleashed a fiery series of messages against President Donald Trump Tuesday over his response to North Korea’s missile tests and the country’s leader, Kim Jong Un’s, criticism of former Vice President Joe Biden.

“Trump is an embarrassing unAmerican traitor! How dare he denounce and belittle VP Biden on foreign soil on Memorial Day,” the congresswoman wrote. “How can these spineless Republicans look their spouses and children in the face and claim to teach them patriotism?”

According to The New York Times, Trump wrote on Twitter that he’d “smiled” when North Korea described Biden as a “fool of low I.Q.” during a visit to Japan. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said Trump and Kim “agree in their assessment” of the 2020 presidential hopeful.

“America’s disgraceful president is totally out of control,” Waters continued. “He is now supporting murderous dictator Kim Jong Un who is testing ballistic missiles and threatening the United States. Does Trump’s desire to be a dictator supercede the security of his own country?”

Highlighting allegations of misconduct the president has been accused of, Waters said, “Low life Trump – lying, crooked, tax evader, porn star fornicator – should take his ridiculous self home, resign, and free us of what we will have to do to impeach him and throw him out of office!”

On Wednesday morning, Waters addressed comments about Trump being absolved of any wrongdoing following Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“Mueller made clear Trump is NOT exonerated and that AG Barr is a liar. Mueller did his job now it’s time for Congress to do its job,” she wrote.

The congresswoman continued her campaign calling for Trump’s impeachment. “No more hiding behind the special counsel. Enough is enough. It’s time to #ImpeachTrump. We can’t wait for 2020. The time is NOW!”
