Once again, she resorted to that which is most comfortable to her — her old friend hyperbole.
Rep. Maxine Waters defended her obsession with removing President Donald Trump from office, claiming that by doing so she’s placing her own re-election in jeopardy.

Waters stated at a gala fundraiser for EMILY’s List, a political action committee that supports pro-abortion women candidates, the California Democrat said although she’s placing her “career on the line” in opposing the president, her “resistance to Trump” has resulted in increased support from young voters, according to the Washington Examiner.
Waters also told the gathering that she received a seven-fold increase in Twitter followers since launching her impeachment campaign — from 46,000 followers to over 327,000.
She said that although “there are many who do not like what I’m doing,” she will continue her efforts.
“But 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.”
Oh, the sacrifices! But wait, people on Twitter weren’t so sure, with many seeing it as another vehicle for her to seek publicity.

@dcexaminer I believe this poor woman would light her hair on fire and run naked down Main Street if it attracted publicity for her

@thehill You should retire in protest so your constituents can get someone who does things for them and not themselves.

Great point! Maybe she’s hoping nobody will notice.
Another believed Waters did something wholly different that placed her career in jeopardy, resulting in an ethics complaint lodged against her.
@dcexaminer She put her career on the line with that bank deal for which she is under investigation.

@thehill If funneling money to family doesn’t do it, you’re likely safe.

She continued her tirade against Trump at the event, and described him as a “disgusting, poor excuse of a man” and continued to call for his impeachment.
“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.
