How “out there” is Maxine Waters? She thinks Johnny Bench is a communal outhouse. She thinks Ernest Tubb is a sincere place to take a bath. Her husband asked her to get behind the car and tell him if the turn signal was working. She said, “It’s working. It’s not working. It’s working. It’s not working. It’s working……
She heard that 2 Brazilians drowned in the ocean and she replied. “I don’t know how many are in a Brazilian, but it sounds like an awful lot.” When the car was stolen, the police asked her if she got a good look at the thieves. She said no, but she did manage to get their license plate number.
She once said that she marches for abortions because her momma couldn’t have one. That makes me want to march too.
Among the dozens of insane comments Waters has made throughout her time in political life, some of the highlights include talking about how she was once a millennial. She also said that the rioters who were attacking Koreatown during the L.A. riots were just “mothers who took this as an opportunity to take some milk, to take some bread, to take some shoes.” She apologized to Fidel Castro for opposing his regime and thanked him for protecting convicted murderer Assata Shakur. Additionally, she blamed the CIA for the crack epidemic.
Her career in Congress is also nothing to gloat about. Since she was elected in 1990, she has sponsored just three bills that became law — renaming of a post office, a Haiti relief bill, and an alteration to the national flood insurance program.
That’s not to say her time in Congress hasn’t benefitted some people. According to The Los Angeles Times, her family has made more than a million dollars profiting from her government connections. Waters was named the most corrupt member of Congress in 2005, 2006, 2009, and 2011 by the group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.
