The dems advancing Maxine Waters as a resistance champion proves they are suffering a leadership shortage.
Maxine Waters is known for corruption and stupidity, but the Democrats are so desperate they are rallying behind her as an anti-Trump champion. Even millennial progressives are treating the aging corruptocrat as a war leader against President Donald Trump. Indeed, before Trump won the election, Waters was accused of corruption even by leftwingers.
This was even acknowledged at Slate, under the headline: “Maxine Waters: From ‘Most Corrupt’ to Resistance Hero.”
Rep. Maxine Waters has been reborn at the age of 78, emerging as a folk hero to the anti-Trump resistance for her repeated torching of the president.
From the glowing coverage and partisan praise, you’d barely detect that just a few years ago the veteran California congresswoman was dubbed one of the nation’s “most corrupt” elected officials by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington for her role in pushing a bailout for a bank tied to her family.
Waters was eventually cleared by investigators, though her grandson who served as her chief of staff was not. And now, Democrats seem to be embracing—and some liberal ethics advocates willfully ignoring—her sudden emergence as one of the nation’s leading critics of ethical lapses in President Donald Trump’s administration.
Keep in mind, the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington is a liberal group that strongly opposes the Presidency of Donald Trump. But when a spokesman was asked about Maxine Waters as an anti-Trump leader, he refuse to answer!
