President Donald Trump took to social media Wednesday to wish his nemesis, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., a happy birthday.
…while designating her the “leader of the Democratic Party.”
“Happy Birthday to the leader of the Democrat Party, Maxine Waters!” the president tweeted.
It’s hard to argue that Waters, who has achieved celebrity status for little more than her zealotry in opposing Trump, is NOT the leader of her party — she’s certainly the most outspoken member.
Trump’s birthday wish is an obvious play on a Waters appearing on MSNBC this week and when asked what she wanted for her 80th birthday, replying she wants a different president.
Waters would go on to detail Trump’s shortcomings as commander in chief, from her perspective.
But the batty lawmaker went off the rails, as she so often does, when she added: “He doesn’t even know the words to the Star-Spangled Banner.”
This isn’t the first time President Trump has put Waters out there as the “face” of the Democratic Party, as seen in a tweet earlier this summer, where he called Waters “an extraordinary low IQ person.”
Trump didn’t limit his trolling to Waters, though. In another tweet, he set his sights on Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
The New York Democrat was featured on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday in a clip from a 2009 speech saying legal immigrants should be favored over migrants who enter the U.S. illegally.
“People who enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the U.S. legally.” Chuck Schumer in 2009, before he went left and haywire!” Trump tweeted.
