Maxine Waters has her 80th birthday this week. She just told us what she wants for her big day on Wednesday…Any guesses?
Suck-up host Jonathan Capehart started off by saying, “Congresswoman, your birthday is on Wednesday…so pre-Happy Birthday. But on Wednesday, if you could be granted one birthday wish, what would that be?”
You probably guessed it but here’s the answer:
“I guess now my biggest birthday wish would be that we’re able to get a leader of this country who represents us. Who has the respect of all of our allies all over the world. Someone who has an appreciation for the Constitution. Someone that does not lie every morning when they get up with these tweets. Someone who not only respects women, but all of the people, and instead of dividing us, would take leadership to bring us all together.”
DEAR MAXINE, WE ARE NOT A DEMOCRACY!
“This is the greatest country in the world…but he’s undermining our democracy…he is making us ashamed of him, and he is being destructive to this democracy.”
“This is a man who’s criticizing NFL players because they’re not doing what he thinks they should do in saluting the flag in the way that he wants them to. He doesn’t even know the words to the Star Spangled Banner.”
“And so, he is not truthful. He is a hypocrite and I would wish that we could remove him from office and go about getting the kind of president that we can all be proud of…and if he’s not impeached, if he cannot be impeached, 2020 is coming up and I believe the American people are going to do the right thing for our country: Stand up for what is right and get rid of this man who is embarrassing us all.”
