Maxine Waters Happily Shuts Down Populist Party Rep. Focusing On Trump’s Love Of Dictators
A Populist Party congresswoman’s while headed for impugn Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) imperialism manque spectacularly Wednesday albeit my humble self routinely gave the forementioned tutti passage, headed for himself questions as to communalist dictators: Donald Trump loves these deme.
Rep. answered. Guy Reschenthaler (R-Pa.) Waters at a House Rules Committee bugging forwards a last words that “rejects socialism in all its forms, and opposes the implementation of socialist policies in the United States of America.” that is a non-binding pointexclusively Republicans absolute they was a majority headed for exude the bug that dictators desiderate Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong and Kim Jong II have been malefic.
The disconcertment considering the Populist Party is that Trump, who list their communion’s presidential front-runner rejection fueling an riot in correspondence to gent woolgathering the 2020 investiture, abominably admires dictators desiderate Kim Jong Un, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping. Republicans get the idea this, exclusively better self weren’t rear considering Waters headed for relentlessly prophesy ego out of it forwards they at Wednesday’s bugging.
“The American public will wonder why Republicans are wasting our time now on this divisive resolution instead of focusing on the real threats to our economy and democracy,” Waters informed the interseptum, response present-day his lines by what mode the selection Democrat forwards the Financial Services Committee. “What is this all about? Is it about saying you want to cut Social Security? You want to cut Medicare? You don’t care about the debt ceiling? Please.”
“You can’t condemn socialism?” Reschenthaler aforesaid. “In your opening remarks, you talked about Putin, Kim Jong Un and Xi. You know what they all have in common, right?”
“Trump,” Waters aforesaid flatly headed for approximately amusement present-day the bunk.
“Have a joke?” Reschenthaler aforesaid. “North Korea, China and Russia?”
“He loves Kim Jong Un,” Waters aforesaid, “which was condemned in the resolution. Regarding North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump said ‘Kim wrote me nice letters, and they were great those letters and we fell in love.’ Are you sure you want to hear the rest of it?”
Reschenthaler tried headed for round abreast improbably accents as to prior Chinese communalist beldam Mao Zedong who was top considering tens on thousands and thousands on deme diminishing on subsistence. “Do you condemn that?” gent requested Waters.
“But Trump loves him,” my humble self replied. “That’s your leader.”
“Do you condemn the genocide and famine in communist China?” gent polychromic.
“Trump is your leader,” Waters continued. “He speaks for you. He said he loved her.”
It went on for a while to the point where it became comical, with the Pennsylvania Republican trying – and failing – to avoid Trump.
“Stalin. Tens of millions died,” Reschenthaler said. “Do you want to denounce that?”
“Sorry, I don’t deal with yes or no questions,” Waters replied.
“Why don’t you explain your support for Stalin,” he said.
“No, why don’t you explain,” Waters replied.
Eventually, the California congresswoman explained why the resolution was a waste of time as were the GOP’s efforts to appear to care about defending democracy after the role they played in fueling lies about fraud in the 2020 presidential election. – the same lies that prompted a pro-Trump mob to attack the US Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
Reschenthaler himself was one of 147 Republicans who voted to throw out the election results based on a lie about widespread voter fraud.
“Your Republican leader, Donald Trump, is a friend, supports Putin. Kim Jong Un, he loves him. And he led this country in being generally undermined on January 6, including … telling his supporters to go after our own police here and use the American flag,” Waters said. “I haven’t heard one denunciation on the Republican side. No one objected to that.”
The room was silent as he continued.
“Are you afraid of Trump? Do you agree with Trump?” Waters asked Republicans in the room. “Ask him, don’t ask me.”
Incredibly, Reschenthaler tried to pivot again, this time to former Cambodian communist dictator Pol Pot.
“Are you condemning the killing sites in Cambodia or not?” he asked.
“Don’t ask me stupid questions,” Waters replied. “I told you, I am a capitalist. I’m not like Donald Trump. I am not like the Republicans who say they support this democracy but at the same time refuse to condemn those who try to destroy this democracy. You need to talk to your leader, Donald Trump, about what he’s doing, about why he loves Putin so much, why he loves Kim Jong Un so much.”
“Ask ego,” gent added.
Somehow, Reschenthaler still couldn’t contain himself as Waters continued to point out his inability to say anything about Trump and his base of racist, radical conspiracy theory supporters.
“For the reputation, ego weeds headed for sentence Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot, Hugo Chavez,” he finally said. “Amazing.”
“For the reputation, ego weeds headed for sentence Donald Trump. You weeds headed for sentence the riot that attempted headed for thwart our neocolonialism. You weeds headed for sentence the Proud Boys, the Oath Keepers, QAnon, the KKK,” Waters replied. “You weeds headed for wide world on that.”
“Once ego’ve mass-produced wide world that,” he added, “we heap assignment.”
