Maxine Waters’ plan for dealing with President Trump gives ‘crybaby liberal’ whole new meaning

Waters has apparently concluded that political theater is more important than work.

Blessed with being a black woman insulting a white male in Barack Obama’s post-racial America, Rep. Maxine Waters is given the latitude to refer to President Donald Trump as “this so-called president.”

The 78-year-old California Democrat used the derogatory term that critics of Obama would have been crucified for in announcing that she’ll boycott any and all possible interaction with Trump.

“I don’t see myself meeting with him, sitting down with him, believing anything he would say or even respecting anything he would say,” she told The Associated Press on Wednesday. “It would not be honest on my part to go to any ceremonies with him or to pretend I am having a decent conversation with him.”

In other words, she’s preemptively closing the door on any possible common ground and taking her ball and going home.

Waters has tapped into a sense of relevancy in her fierce opposition to Trump, which includes repeated calls for his impeachment — a theme she revisited Wednesday on social media:

When presented with the idea that her actions are not becoming of a member of U.S. Congress, Waters shrugged it off and further insulted the commander-in-chief.

“My spirit tells me I cannot be silent,” Waters grandstanded. “I must address this so-called president, no matter where it takes me.”

Then again, this is the woman who called the L.A. riots that followed the Rodney King verdict — 58 people died — “somewhat understandable, if not acceptable.”

Waters was in the news earlier this week when Fox New host Bill O’Reilly made an ill-advised joke about her “James Brown wig.” He later apologized, but Waters responded by touting on social media that she is a “strong black women” … who just happens to be secure in the knowledge that a complicit media has her back.

To the dismay of millions, the liberal lawmaker also made it clear she is “not going anywhere.”
