Democrat Maxine Waters was in rare form on the House floor during debate on getting rid of the bogus discrimination programs created by lawmakers like Waters.
Waters isn’t a fan of Trump’s Budget Director Mick Mulvaney so the move to get rid of Maxine’s anti-discrimination program must have set her off.
The hearing was centered on Obama-era anti-discrimination regulations for auto lenders, which Republicans and some Democrats voted to reverse. The measure, which was previously approved by the Senate, is now awaiting Trump’s signature.
During the hearing, Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) and Rep. MaxWaters (D-CA) got into a heated exchange.
On a side note, Kelly knows tons about the auto industry and car loans. He was a car dealer who lost his dealership in the auto bailout. He ran for Congress right after that happened. The guy is awesome and is a rare truth teller in D.C.:
After Kelly was finished speaking, Waters made a colossal jackass out of herself by calling Kelly back to admonish him and his support of our President.
“Mr. Kelly, please do not leave. Because I want you to know that I am more offended as an African American woman than you will ever be. And this business about making America great again, it is your president that’s dividing this country! And don’t talk to me about the fact that we don’t understand … that’s the attitude that’s been given toward women time and time again.”

Kelly attempted to chime in, but Waters refused to yield for a response. McClintock reminded Waters to direct her remarks to him, and she ignored the request a second time.
“I respect the chair, but don’t stop me in the middle when you didn’t stop him in the middle, and so I shall continue,” Waters said, turning back to Kelly. “Don’t you dare talk to me like that and think that somehow women don’t understand what goes on on the floor of automobile dealers.”McClintock again requested that Waters respect the rules, which sent the 79-year-old politician into a tirade about Trump.
“I don’t appreciate that you did not interrupt him when he was making those outrageous remarks about him knowing more about discrimination than I know about discrimination,” Waters shouted. “I resent that and I resent the remark about making America great again.
“He’s down here making a speech for this dishonorable president of the United States of America. Having said that, I reserve the balance of my time. And no, I do not yield, not one second to you,” she yelled at Kelly.
She added an echo for dramatic effect.
“Not one second,” she shouted. “Not one second to you.”
