It was recently released that Pence has been eyeing up a 2020 presidential campaign. Trump should be pretty concerned about this, as well as the rest of us. Rep. Maxine Waters had something to say about it and as always hits the nail right on the head.
‘Trump Should Be Concerned About Him’
“The rumor is is that [Pence] is getting ready because maybe he believes that something might happen and he should be ready to step in, or that he could run in 2020 and win.” Waters told MSNBC’s Joy Reid on Sunday during “AM Joy.” “So I don’t think that we should be concerned about him. Trump should be concerned about him.” But the scary thing is, Pence is even worse than Trump. Trump is highly uneducated and just plain stupid, but Pence knows how to become the next dictator and make our lives a living hell.
Waters is a frequent outspoken Trump critic, which we love, and made these comments after it was announced by the NY Times that advisers close to Pence said he’s been hinting to party donors that if Trump doesn’t run in 2020, he will. On Sunday, Pence called the rumors “laughable and absurd” but we all know it’s true and he’ll do it. “The American people know that I could not be more honored to be working side by side with a president who is making America great again.”
This is coming from the same person who wants shock therapy to be legal on all LGBT folks to make them “normal” again. You are lying through your Russian-loving teeth.
Waters’ Comments on Impeachment
Waters though, in her amazingness, explained on Sunday why she believes the president is completely vulnerable right now:
“If the people around you are leaking in the way that they’re doing, they are trying to tell us something. Of course, we don’t want classified information leaked out and I don’t think that they would do that with a credible president. They’re doing that to this president because he has defined himself as someone who cannot be trusted,” she said.
She also said her piece on the national security leaks,
“The first thing they need to do is start with the president,” Waters said. “The president gave classified information to Russians in the White House and our ally Israel was very upset with us, so start with him.”
Waters also warned that if Trump fires special counsel Robert Mueller, it’s grounds for impeachment. “I believe that if he moves on Mueller, that he has crossed the line,” she said. “It’s a combination of that kind of thing and the information that’s going to come out about him that would cause impeachment.”
Well, let the impeachment begin! What are we waiting for? May the odds be ever in your favor, Maxine.
