Freshman Rep. Lisa McClain (R-MI) is one of the most badass members of the United States Congress.
On Monday, McClain took a wrecking ball to Nancy Pelosi on the House floor over her hypocritical treatment of Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (CA), who traveled from Washington DC to Minneapolis to address BLM/Antifa rioters, called for them to become more “confrontational,” and to stay on the streets. Waters demanded that the group of hostile agitators not accept anything less than a guilty conviction in the trial of ex-officer Derek Chauvin.
In the video below, Waters can be seen telling the BLM and Antifa protesters to become “confrontational” and not to accept anything less than a murder conviction for Chauvin:

Rep. Maxine Waters made the comments before the Minneapolis jury (that was NOT sequestered), came to a decision about Chauvin’s role in the death of George Floyd.
The judge presiding over the Chauvin case warned that Rep. Waters’ incendiary remarks could be the reason the defense for Chauvin may be able to overturn the case on appeal.
On Tuesday, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz charged that Maxine Waters was clearly trying to intimidate the jury with her public statement.
Epoch Times – “Her message was clearly intended to get to the jury—‘If you will acquit or if you find the charge less than murder, we will burn down your buildings. We will burn down your businesses. We will attack you. We will do what happened to the witness—blood on their door,’” he said during an appearance on Newsmax, referring to how the former home of defense expert Barry Brodd was recently vandalized.
Yesterday, every single Republican House member voted for Maxine Waters to be censured, while every Democrat in the House voted against Waters being censured. The censure resolution against Maxine Waters was rejected, thanks to a Democrat majority that always sticks together, no matter how serious the act committed by a fellow member of their party.

One freshman congresswoman was not about to sit back and allow the Democrat Speaker of the House to cover for Maxine Waters and her repeated calls for violence against anyone with whom she disagrees, with a challenge. In only one minute, McClain took a wrecking ball to Nancy. She pointed out Pelosi’s hypocrisy. Pelosi ignored Waters’ dangerous call for violence, only months after trying to impeach Trump for the January 6th incident, when he clearly never called for violence.
“If this were reversed, if this was said by a Republican, you know Mrs. Madame Speaker that the majority of this chamber would move to strip that representative from their committees and possibly vote to remove that person from Congress,” McClain said.
Anyone who plays back the tape of President Trump’s speech can see he never incited violence, but they certainly can’t say the same about Maxine Waters.
As a Michigan resident, I’m proud to know that we have such a fierce, unafraid opponent of Speaker Pelosi, who frequently steamrolls over spineless Republicans who fear her. Keep your eye on Rep. Lisa McClain, an outspoken supporter of President Trump and advocate of free and fair elections—she’s a rising star in the Republican Party. We could use a couple hundred more Republicans like Lisa McClain in Congress.
